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
Lexus makes a posh compact SUV but forgets to make it drive well.
More efficient and effective car than its predecessors, just not quite as exciting
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
A saloon car for people who don’t really care about/enjoy driving, but quite like big mpg and a nice stereo
To call this a posh Prius may sound a little harsh, but that’s what it is.
If you *really* like BMWs, then the 8 Series is great. But it's less special than its rivals
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.
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
BMW's switch from RWD to FWD for the new hatch is no bad thing. This new 1 Series is a good car from the bottom up.
