You might not like to admit it, but the BMW X5 is a damn good car.
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
It's engine range isn't class leading, but overlook that and the Micra is a massively improved contender
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
It's divisive but, judging by sales, in a good way. Another Nissan crossover success.
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.
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
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.
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.
