Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
Bold and beautiful: the Lexus LC is the maddest Lexus since the LFA, and backs it up with impressive dynamics for a heavy car… so long as you buy the V8, not the hybrid.
Less inviting to own than a Mercedes C-coupe, but scores points with excellent driving dynamics, a strong range, well laid-out cabin and class-best infotainment.
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
Mercedes has thrown everything it knows into the new E-Class. You can tell.
A brilliantly-designed item. Every inch the mini-A8, but not as good to drive as a 5er.
A coupe that majors on comfort and luxury. Unless you go for the C63 AMG, in which case it's NUTS
A good car in a class of great ones
Credible alternative to the establishment, without being quite as talented as the key players.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
Looks good, lowers the heart rate and comes with some reasonably cost-effective engines. A winning combination
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Interesting, but there are much, much better cars available for the same money.
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
Forgettable engine and transmission in a sporty-looking package. A sheep in wolf’s clothing.
