There is no shortage of debate about whether the new 2017 BMW i3 is good car for a long-run. In my opinion, it is because it has smooth acceleration, agile urban handling and elegant interior. I feel this way since this car is technological and stylistic monster. However, it lacks a few things. For instance, BMW’s traditional dynamism and its rear seat is a little bit compromised. Also, there are a lot of new rivals that can take the lead on the car market. Good car indeed.
