BMW car reviews
The i3 doesn’t address the most fundamental issue with electric cars – their limited range – but if an electric car can fit into your lifestyle, then the i3 is very desirable. There are cheaper rivals, but the BMW has a premium feel that justifies the extra it costs

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.

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.

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.

The BMW 6 Series Coupe is a large 2+2, fitted with a range of potent yet efficient engines. It’s at its best crossing continents at speed.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé goes head to head with the Mercedes CLS, Porsche Panamera and Audi A7. As such, it's a sporting saloon with coupé-like styling that's stylish and swift. It comes with lots of kit and a high-quality interior. Highly recommended.

The march of the BMW 3 Series continues. Every area has now been honed, but it’s the ride, refinement and economy which have gone to another level.

The BMW 1-series hatchback now has a class-leading interior to go with those fantastic driving dynamics, but it’s still a confused offering in the small family car market with controversial styling and poor rear packaging.

The BMW M5 is now in its fifth generation and shows no sign of slowing down. The engine might have shrunk, but power is now even more impressive. Need to get to that meeting quickly? Look no further.

The BMW 6 Series Convertible is set to challenge the UK sales dominance of the Jaguar XK. It feels better built and will be cheaper to run, but it just loses out on the Jag’s charm.

You might remember, a couple of months back, one instalment of this series in which we discussed a mid-’90s advert for the Audi A4. If you do, you’ll also remember that the premise of that ad was a cheeky jibe at BMW’s expense – a unbearably slick city type who, it turned out, was test driving an A4, and decided it wasn’t for him.

The new BMW i3 is the beginning of a revolution in the way the company produces and sells its cars. You see, the i3 is the first in a range of cars that BMW says will inspire ‘a new understanding of premium that is strongly defined by sustainability.’
