Default Steering wheel panned to the left??

I've always noticed in my 01 9-5 that the steering wheel seems to be closer to my body on the right and further away on the left, (as if it's panned to the left) it was the same on my old 9-3. A friend of mine used to have an 05 5-series bmw and it was the same in his car. (Steering wheel panned to the left) seemed to be even more pronounced In the bmw. It was like it followed the curve of the dashboard. My 9-5 is the same way

Does anyone have any idea why this is? Is it some kind of safety feature or have some kind of reasoning behind it? Maybe a European car thing? I've always been curious to find out.
