What you need to know about BMWs
Think of BMW as the go-to car manufacturer for motors that tick many of the modern-day boxes, while remembering the joy of driving. Highlights include the BMW 1 Series, a premium hatchback that’s practical and affordable without compromise on performance, and the BMW 7 Series, which established the brand’s presence in the executive saloon market.
If you’re someone who enjoys getting behind the wheel, there’ll be something in the range to suit you. From the impressive boot space and improved balance of the newer X3 to the engaging, sharp Z4, or the class-leading efficiency of the BMW 5 Series, BMW owners are among the most satisfied on the roads.
BMWs deliver on all fronts. Infotainment systems tend to be functional and modern, specs are above class standards, and efficiency statistics ensure BMWs are still a practical choice.
What you need to watch out for
Not all original owners will have splashed out on the expensive options. Used BMWs can have quite some difference in the luxury extras available. Not all models have lived up to expectations either. We found the BMW X6 disappointingly average. Despite many merits, the 4x4 crossover is just too impractical for most people.
Similarly, the BMW 5 Series Grand Tourer might boast the same excellent engine and gearbox you find in all big BMWs, but it’s completely underwhelming to drive. That said, it’s the only BMW we’ve ever given two stars. Check out all our BMW reviews to make an informed choice.
