This is the future, supercar buyers. If this is how it's to be, bring it on.
Being based on the best junior exec is a good start: this car is a belter.
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
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.
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
The X3 has never done BMW much credit, but the new one is a thorough enough job to take on the class best
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.
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
A big step up from the old one, but still overshadowed by the brilliant S-Max.
The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car
By going transverse-engined the X1 has become technically less distinctive, but more useful in the real world
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
If you *really* like BMWs, then the 8 Series is great. But it's less special than its rivals
The X7 is BMW's biggest and most luxurious SUV, and it wants to be noticed
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
Cosier and more expensive than rivals, but appealing badge and quality
Big, comfy and tech-heavy, but plain and ultimately unremarkable.
Far from M Division’s finest hour. Fast, but you couldn’t live with the ride
