BMW i3 Review: a little car with a lot of character

The BMW i3 is an intriguing little car. It's quirky looking and certainly not your usual BMW design, but then it has been built from the ground up to be an entirely new car for the German manufacturer.

Audi A3 COD v Mazda 3 XD Astina : Comparison review
