Exceptional thrills and looks, but don't think that it's an everyday car.
The most complete compact exec and perhaps the best saloon of all.
Being based on the best junior exec is a good start: this car is a belter.
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
A brilliant car, one of the best four-seat drives you can lay your hands on.
The best small premium EV you can buy.
This is the future, supercar buyers. If this is how it's to be, bring it on.
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
The default four-seat cabrio. Excellent engines and quality, impressive metal roof too.
BMW was not quick off the blocks with its four-door coupe, but the wait was worth it: this is a lovely car.
More efficient and effective car than its predecessors, just not quite as exciting
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.
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
Packed full of tech and beautifully made, but the S-Class is still better.
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.
A brilliant premium hatch that appeals to both keen drivers and the economically minded.
You might not like to admit it, but the BMW X5 is a damn good car.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
By going transverse-engined the X1 has become technically less distinctive, but more useful in the real world
The BMW 6-Series is a luxurious, huge Coupe that, thankfully, now looks good again. But it's no sports coupe
Replaces shock value with class and refinement, and is better for it.
