2015 BMW 125i v Mercedes-Benz A250 Comparison Review

Ordinarily, pitching a pair of premium German arch rivals against one another couldn’t represent a more natural face-off. But despite being oh-so-closely priced and positioned in their makers’ ranges, there’s one level where the Mercedes-Benz A250 Sport and BMW 125i couldn’t be more misaligned. Different driven wheels? In part, yes, but it’s more about the backstories behind it...

Premium hatch comparison: Audi A3 v BMW 1 Series v Mercedes-Benz A-Class v Alfa Romeo Giulietta v Volkswagen Golf v Volvo V40

‘Premium’ is perhaps the word most difficult to define in the automotive lexicon. To some, it may be about delivering an image above the mainstream and the connotations of a badge; to others it may be about the tangibles of a product and the engineering behind the façade...

BMW M135i v Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG: Comparison Review

Hatches don’t come any hotter than the BMW M135i and the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG. Nor do rivalries come any fiercer. BMW has been building fast hatchbacks since the 130i of a decade ago, and its M division is esteemed in building compact six-cylinder performance models seemingly since the dawn of time...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The ultimate drivers hatchback search has been on for some years. A couple cars ago I had a 2008 STi, but had a job that needed 25,000kms of Sydney driving, and whilst a nice gearbox and not too bad ride, eventually went for a diesel auto Wrangler for a few years, then onto a BMW 130i that was also P plate compliant, so ticked the box of a capable track car and is still in the family with my son driving it...

2012 BMW 1 Series Review

Individuality. It's what makes us different, and it's also what can divide opinion. And in 2011 when BMW launched its first redesign of the original 1 Series it certainly created a divide. The bold, athletic, sculpted face of the redesigned car was a far cry from the pretty curvaceous design of the 2004 original...

2010 BMW 1 Series Review

The 120i is BMW's answer to practicality, comfort, luxury and class packed into a package that remains affordable, despite the BMW badge. This particular example is the 4 cylinder 2.0L petrol variant and comes equipped with the 6 speed automatic transmission. Upon first glance, the 120i is unmistakably BMW...

2013 BMW 1 Series Review

Review: BMW F20 M135i $68,400 In the past, the term ‘hot hatch' used to refer to small, light, front-wheel-drive hatchbacks with go kart handling and a motor that felt like it was from a coffee grinder. Safety was non-existent, comfort was relative, and parking was a breeze...
