2015 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer Review: LT1

It’s hard to imagine a BMW that doesn’t have a direct connection from the engine to the rear wheels. Then again, not too long ago it would’ve been hard to imagine a BMW that was a mixture of a hatch and a people-mover. But as the first front-wheel-drive BMW MPV, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer breaks all sorts of conventions, for all the right reasons...

2015 BMW 1 Series Review

The updated BMW 1 Series has a lot to offer, but is it enough to unsettle the Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M Review

The monstrous BMW X5 M and X6 M twins-under-the-skin defy convention in the best kind of way...

2015 BMW 318d Touring Review

Combining sharp looks with excellent practicality, for 2015, the BMW 318d Touring is now even better value...

Audi TT Quattro Sport v BMW 228i Sport : Comparison Review

One brief, two different approaches. It's AWD Audi against RWD BMW for the battle of the sports coupes.

2015 BMW X5 M v Porsche Cayenne Turbo : Comparison Review

Traditionally, the sportscar concept embraced lightness and simplicity – a less is more approach. Increasingly, though, the makers of the BMW X5 M from Munich and Porsche Cayenne Turbo from Stuttgart – together with Affalterbach arch rival Mercedes-AMG – threaten to burst the conventional ‘sportiness’ pigeonhole at the seams plying extensive feature lists, excess in luxury and extremes of high performance in formulating their range-leading Sport Utility Vehicles...

Audi A3 Cabriolet v BMW 2 Series Convertible : Comparison review

With the sunlight hours diminishing by the day, the Audi A3 Cabriolet and the BMW 2 Series Convertible may not be at the top of your automotive wish list. Ironically, however, as we’re busy digging out our trackies and Uggs in preparation for circa-20-degree days, our friends in parts of Europe are doing the same – though they’re stripping off snow jackets and boots (in place of our footy shorts and thongs) in anticipation of what they depressingly label ‘summer’...

2004 BMW 5 30i Sport Review

We bought this baby approximately 2 years ago. It was an impulse buy which my partner thought was a good idea as he has always dreamed about owning a 5 series. At the time I had high doubts about buying a European car with 120,000kms that was 9 years old. But, (touch wood) there was little wrong with her...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The formula is simple, it's one that has been proven time and time again. Take one relatively light car, place a relatively big engine in it and make sure the power exits through the rear wheels. Add some thoughtful concern for 50:50 weight distribution and you have what can be described as a fun drive, it's physics after all, you're working with the laws and not trying to fight them...

2014 BMW 116i Sportline Review

I purchased my 2014 BMW 116i in late 2014 and overall have been very happy with my decision. I spent about a month looking for a vehicle to replace my 2011 Audi A3 and after many vehicles being considered, I ended up buying the 1 Series. Looked at SP25 Astina, A3, A-Class and more, and it turned out the BMW was the cheapest, and the best to drive in the end...

2014 BMW 5 20d GT Luxury Line Review

The 5 series GT is a unique car. I've read all the reviews of people not liking the styling but I like it although I admit the standard 5 series is a sleeker sportier looking car. My reason for purchase comes down to having three teenage children all approaching or at 6 ft tall. Try and find other sedans that will fit 5adults...

Car technology: driving on a flat run flat tyre

Read the article here. What are run flat tyres? Essentially an RFT is a self-supporting tyre with a very different construction to that of a conventional pneumatic tyre. The sidewall is made of thicker rubber and has been reinforced to make it stiffer. It's this section that will bear the weight once the air pressure is gone...

BMW X5 twin test - upgrading from E70 to F15

Read the article here. For many Australians, selling your car before its warranty period ends – say every three or four years – is pretty standard practice. And if your ownership experience has been good, then the first place you’re likely look for your next car, is the new version of the one you have. So today, I’m upgrading from my own BMW X5 to the new BMW X5...

BMW 318d Touring : do you need an SUV?

With a 495-litre boot capacity, the BMW 3 Series Touring has a larger boot than the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class. But its practicality doesn’t end there… With the seats up, there is already plenty of space. But what if you need more? The cargo blind and load barrier can separate and the blind can be stored in a handy compartment under the floor...

BMW Touch Sensitive Radio Preset Buttons

BMW hydrogen fuel cell prototypes revealed

BMW has revealed two of its hydrogen fuel cell prototype vehicles at its Innovation Days event. One of the vehicles, a BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo would be almost indistinguishable from the version in showrooms across the world, were it not for the words "Hydrogen Fuel Cell" emblazoned down its sides. The 5 Series GT prototype's motivation comes courtesy of a 180kW electric motor...

Our spy photographers have spotted the next-generation BMW M5 out and about during public road testing in Europe.

At the front there's a larger air intake than on next-gen BMW 5 Series prototypes we've seen earlier, while at the rear this car has quad exhaust tips...
