2013 BMW 320i Review

2013 BMW 320i Review

In the quest for more sales, BMW has introduced a new entry level version of the 3 Series. The question is, has BMW gone too far down-market, or is this still a true Bimmer?
2014 BMW 535d Review

2014 BMW 535d Review

Luxury sedans and diesel engines might not be common in North America, but the new BMW 535d has us asking: Is the best 5 Series, a diesel 5 Series?
2012 BMW 328i Review

2012 BMW 328i Review

2011 BMW 528i Review [Video]

2011 BMW 528i Review [Video]

True, the styling is a bit bland, but what’s holding this 5 Series back is its straight-six engine. Thankfully there’s the 535i.

2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i Review

2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i Review

A bigger 3 Series sounds like a great idea, but you won’t find all of BMW’s brilliant sport sedan in the X3 and you’ll likely find it a little lacking in luxury.

2011 BMW X3 xDrive35i Review

2011 BMW X3 xDrive35i Review

Having grown in size to better appeal to the Lexus RX crowd, the X3 retains its performance ute characteristics and gets a serious boost in power. Sadly, the interior will leave you lusting for a Lexus.

BMW X1 xDrive 23d Prototype

We get a chance to drive a prototype version of BMW’s upcoming X1 crossover and get answers to questions that, until now, BMW has been tight-lipped about.

2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i Review

2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i Review

A bigger 3 Series sounds like a great idea, but you won’t find all of BMW’s brilliant sport sedan in the X3 and you’ll likely find it a little lacking in luxury.

BMW’s first ever ground-up electric car might not be pretty, so it’s a good thing its real beauty lies beneath its aluminum chassis and carbon fiber skin.

2013 BMW Z4 sDrive35i Review

2013 BMW Z4 sDrive35i Review

With minimal updates over the years, has the Z4 grown old, or is the Z4 just so good it doesn’t need messing with?

BMW Coupe Reviews

2014 BMW 228i Review

2014 BMW 228i Review

Retro is the hot thing these days; it seems if something’s old it’s automatically awesome. BMW is reaching back into its historical treasure chest by introducing a small, fun-to-drive coupe that brings to mind the legendary 2002 from decades past.
2014 BMW 4 Series Review

2014 BMW 4 Series Review

Trading its 3 Series badge in for a 4, has BMW’s go-to coupe also replaced its essential qualities? Far from it!
2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe Review [Video]

2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe Review [Video]

Sporting a re-tuned version of the 135’s turbocharged six-cylinder, on paper the 1M’s engine seems like its weakest link. But BMW’s engineers have made it the car’s best feature.
