A good car in a class of great ones
If you *really* like BMWs, then the 8 Series is great. But it's less special than its rivals
Jaguar said its SUVs made new estate cars pointless. It’s built one anyway, and it’s mostly a success.
Same waft, just with added style. A fine long-distance GT, if ever there was one.
More efficient and effective car than its predecessors, just not quite as exciting
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
For the vast majority of us, the 3 Series Touring is all the car we could use or want
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 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.
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
Rivals are closer than ever, but S-Class remains our favourite luxo-barge. For now
