BMW 1 Series 1.5 116d EfficientDynamics Plus Sports Hatch 5dr Diesel Manual (start/stop) (114 bhp) Hatchback (2015 - ) expert review
The combination of smart looks with the added attraction of good standard equipment and a range of frugal engines means this 1 Series is a more attractive proposition than ever before. It drives nicely, too, so if you like your small hatch with a sporty flavour, then it’s worth a look. However, the firm ride, patchy interior quality and limited practicality mean it’s not our favourite small hatch.

BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer 1.5 216d Luxury Gran Tourer 5dr Diesel Manual (start/stop) (108 g/km, 116 bhp) MPV (2015 - ) expert review
With no rivals from the likes of Audi or Mercedes, the Gran Tourer effectively has no direct competition. There are more practical MPVs, and there are cheaper MPVs, but the Gran Tourer has one crucial attraction: it may not be the most able MPV, but it could well be the most desirable…

BMW 2 Series 2.0 220d M Sport Convertible 2dr Diesel Manual (start/stop) (124 g/km, 184 bhp) Convertible (2015 - ) expert review
The BMW 2 Series Convertible does all the important drop-top jobs well. It looks great inside and out, it’s effortlessly desirable and it feels like a quality product. Pick the right version, and it’s very good to drive as well, but other versions may leave you feeling a little cold - even with the roof up.

BMW X4 2.0TD xDrive20d M Sport SUV 5dr Diesel Automatic (131 g/km, 187 bhp) SUV (2014 - ) expert review
The X4 is an unashamedly niche product – a sporty, more design-led type of SUV – which by definition means it will have limited appeal. It’s an interesting alternative to a more conventional SUV, but rivals such as the Porsche Macan and Range Rover Evoque may prove more interesting…

BMW 4 Series 2.0TD 420d M Sport Convertible 2dr Diesel Manual (138 g/km, 184 bhp) Convertible (2013 - ) expert review
The BMW 4 Series Convertible is more of a comfortable cruiser than a sporting soft-top, but it’s a cracking all-rounder nonetheless. If you’re looking for a prestige convertible, it should definitely be on your shortlist.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe 2.0 420d Luxury Gran Coupe 4dr Diesel Manual (start/stop) (119 g/km, 184 bhp) Coupe (2014 - ) expert review
The biggest question is not whether the Gran Coupe is a good car – it’s certainly that – but whether the Gran Coupe strikes the right compromise. And, that may be a more difficult one for buyers to decide…

If the limited range of an electric car can fit into your lifestyle, then the BMW i3 is one of the best. If it doesn’t, BMW has that covered, too, because there’s a range-extender version that gives most of the benefits of an electric car, but that can keep going when the battery runs down. Expensive, but very desirable.

BMW 4 Series 2.0TD 420d M Sport Coupe 2dr Diesel Manual (127 g/km, 184 bhp) Coupe (2013 - ) expert review
The BMW 4 Series coupe is the artist formally known as the BMW 3 Series coupe. BMW has creamed off the two-door versions of its 3 Series to offer better model delineation and more exclusivity. New name aside, it remains the dynamic benchmark in its category and, for the first time, is available with four-wheel drive as well as rear-wheel drive.

BMW 3 Series 2.0TD (s/s) 320d Sport GT Hatchback 5dr Diesel Manual (129 g/km, 184 bhp) Hatchback (2013 - ) expert review
The BMW 3 Series GT, or 3GT, is the latest model to expand the repertoire of the UK’s benchmark executive saloon. Sitting at the pricier end of the 3 Series range, it attempts to combine the prestige of the saloon and practicality of the Touring with the rear space of a 5 Series to offer more emphasis on comfort, luxury and refinement.

BMW 3 Series 2.0TD (s/s) 320d M Sport Touring 5dr Diesel Manual (125 g/km, 184 bhp) Estate (2010 - ) expert review
The BMW 3 Series Touring estate is one of the most convincing cars on sale, barely putting a foot wrong. It’s practical, economical and exciting to drive.
