You might not like to admit it, but the BMW X5 is a damn good car.
Far from M Division’s finest hour. Fast, but you couldn’t live with the ride
The X3 has never done BMW much credit, but the new one is a thorough enough job to take on the class best
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
Easy to own but there's not a lot of flair compared to its myriad rivals
More efficient and effective car than its predecessors, just not quite as exciting
It really does tick a whole lot of boxes. You know you want one.
The Insignia Sports Tourer is a solid effort, handsome and well mannered too.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
The new 5 Series is as good to drive as the BMW image, and yet it's as refined and plush as a Mercedes E-Class.
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
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.
The default four-seat cabrio. Excellent engines and quality, impressive metal roof too.
For the vast majority of us, the 3 Series Touring is all the car we could use or want
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
Cosier and more expensive than rivals, but appealing badge and quality
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
