The BMW 2 Series Coupe is a bit unusual in the luxury car world. It does not have many direct competitors as most other manufacturers do not offer a two-door in this class. The 2 Series can be had with a turbocharged four-cylinder or a turbocharged six-cylinder engine.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is different than the regular 2 Series Coupe. For starters, the Gran Coupe is a front-wheel drive-based sedan compared the rear-wheel drive 2 Series Coupe. Power for this car comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that makes between 228 to 301 hp depending on trim level.
Not happy enough with the 4 series coupe and convertible, or the 3 series sedan, BMW has created a third compact car. Called the 4 Series Gran Coupe, it’s a more stylish sedan that trades a bit of practicality for a swoopier shape. Like its siblings, the Gran Coupe is offered with a choice of turbocharged four and six cylinder engines.
Large luxury cars may not be as popular as they once were, but there’s still a certain prestige that only cars like the BMW 7 Series can bring. A sedan that’s designed more for the rear seat passengers than the driver, the 7 Series is the very definition of opulence and comfort.
BMW’s large coupe and convertible continue on for another year. With a choice of turbocharged six and eight cylinder engines, the 8 Series is plenty quick. Despite it’s large size, rear-seat space is still a bit tight, but adults can fit back for shorter trips. Like most BMWs, this coupe and convertible come with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive.
The 8 Series Gran Coupe is BMW’s most stylish sedan. Sleeker than the 7 Series, the 8 Series Gran Coupe trades in a bit of passenger space for presence and looks. The large four-door comes with a choice of turbocharged engines, making between 335 and 612 hp.
BMW is in a full electrified onslaught that includes the brand’s largest sedan, the 7-Series. The i7 offers all the luxury of the regular 7 Series, but in a unique, all-electric package. Initially, it was available with a dual motor set-up making 536 hp. Now joining the lineup is a rear-wheel drive version called the eDrive50.
The BMW X4 is a more stylish version of the compact X3 SUV. With more fastback-like styling, it’s what many consider a SUV Coupe. Power comes from a choice of turbocharged four and six cylinder engines. Those who want the highest levels of performance should look at the X4 M.
The BMW Z4 roadster is one of the few small luxury convertible sports cars still on the market. Available with a four-cylinder or a six-cylinder engine, both come turbocharged and are plenty powerful to propel the car. The Z4 comes only with rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
