It's a 3 that's as long as a 5 with as much room as an X, but is the 330i Gran Turismo BMW enough?

2016 BMW 318i Review

The BMW 318i badge returns, packing a three-cylinder engine. Yes, a three-pot 3-Series. Does the package work?

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 3 Series Hybrid Video Review

The ActiveHybrid 3 aims for both low fuel consumption and high performance - but gets much closer to the latter.

BMW 330i v Jaguar XE 25t R-Sport v Lexus IS200t F Sport v Mercedes-Benz C250 : Comparison Review

You’re on your way up the corporate ladder, and you need a compact executive car that befits your burgeoning status. Or, perhaps, you’re coming through the other side, flush and looking to downsize without scrimping on class. What do you buy? Tough question. Fact is, if you’re after a sporty and luxurious mid-sized sedan in Australia, you’re embarrassed with riches...

Mercedes-Benz C200 v BMW 320i : Comparison review

Not long ago the BMW 320i and Mercedes-Benz C200 would have had their model designation badges removed before their starting-out business executive owner even left the showroom. Behind the allure of tri-star and propeller badges were the reality of wheezy base engines and specification that often left execs cranking window winders...

2019 BMW 3 Series sedan spied with showroom-ready lights

The next-generation BMW 3 Series sedan has been photographed wearing production-ready LED head- and tail-lights.

2016 BMW 330i Touring M-Sport review

First impressions. So, I've picked up my November, 2016, 8000km, ex-BMW Australia, 330i Touring M-Sport and in our first week together we have covered about 1000km...

2001 BMW 325i review

I knew that I wanted something decently powerful (while being within P-plate power-to-weight constraints) and fun to drive, while still being fairly practical. And preferably a manual, with RWD. So, naturally, as soon as I found that an old BMW was within reach, I pursued it...

2008 BMW 3 25i Review

Have had my MY08 BMW E92 325i a few years now and it's still a treat to drive with the looks to boot. Comfortable, safe and a pleasure to drive from a 10min shopping run to the weekend drive. The 2.5ltr 160kW engine has enough power as a daily drive and the 6 speed auto/Steptronic is smooth but lively if needed...

2016 BMW 3 40i M-sport Review

Beautifully built. Comfortable and quiet with the engine purring if you want or snarling if that is your thing. M sport brakes are a good option and better to have than variable steering. I do not understand the comments about the standard steering, which makes for a sharp ride on straights or in corners...
