2019 BMW X7 review

Following the success of the Audi Q7, it's reasonable to assume that the BMW X7 will make some headway in the Australian luxury SUV market. Here, we look at the two petrol variants at the global launch.

2019 BMW 3 Series review

The seventh-generation BMW 3 Series range has landed in Aussie showrooms in petrol and diesel forms. So why is one version so much better than the other?

2019 BMW X5 M50d review

The X5 is BMW's most important model. In most ways, the new version remains true to its predecessor, but brings overall improvements. Sensible types will buy the entry grades, but for the bolder there’s the quad-turbo M50d...

2020 BMW 330e, X3 30e, X5 45e review: Quick drive

BMW is going plug-in crazy with no fewer than three making their debut at Geneva. We've already driven 'em...

REVIEW: BMW X7 first drive

it’s taken BMW a while to enter this segment, but as with most things BMW does, it has done so with aplomb.

REVIEW: 2019 BMW 3 Series, Australian launch

How this new Bimmer fares as an all-rounder against the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class remains to be seen, but if the 3 Series brings with it the expectation of being the natural driver’s car to beat, this new version, in isolation at least, look to be more than capable of carrying the mantle and maintaining what many consider to be a hard-fought and well-earned reputation...

REVIEW: 2019 BMW X5 M50d

The new 2019 BMW X5 range kicks off with the X5 30d and 40i petrol and diesel models, which offer all the prestige SUV that anyone really needs. But, of course, some people only want the biggest and the best, which is where the X5 M50d tested here comes in.

REVIEW: 2019 BMW X5 hits Australia

Before Mercedes-Benz has had the chance to lob its all-new GLE into Australia, BMW has thrown its new X5 SUV into the ring.

2018 BMW M5 v Mercedes-AMG E63 S comparison

It’s a great Did You Know factoid that AMG wasn’t involved in the first express-spec E-Class. When Mercedes decided five years was long enough for the original (1985) M5 to have had its own way in the mid-range sports sedan arena – longer if you count the M535i – the Stuttgart brand sought the help of close-neighbour Porsche to create a muscled-up, V8-powered version of the W124 sedan...

2018 BMW X2 v Jaguar E-Pace comparison

They’re the stylish new kids on the small SUV block, bringing a touch of flair and prestige to a segment already brimming with alternatives – 37 models to be exact, with an astonishing 182 variants. Standing out from the crowd is not only difficult, but vital...

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i v Volvo XC60 T6 R Design comparison

You’ve got about $80,000 to spend on a mid-sized luxury SUV, but is it best to go the traditional German route or take the alternative Swedish path?

2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe teased

The new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has been teased at the luxury automaker's annual press conference. BMW has confirmed the new 2 Series Gran Coupe will use the latest version of the company's front- and all-wheel drive architecture. The next-generation 1 Series hatch will ditch its current rear-wheel drive underpinnings for this platform too...

BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo to be axed

BMW has confirmed it will drop the 3 Series Gran Turismo as part of its upcoming cost-cutting efforts, following a 7.9 per cent drop in operating profits in 2018. In a press release, the company outlined its 'strategic course' to tackle 'challenging conditions', with key issues identified including political uncertainty, a cooling global economy, rising production costs, exchange rates and rising raw materials prices...

2021 BMW i4 spied in the snow

A prototype believed to be the BMW i4 electric vehicle has been spotted tearing up the white stuff in Europe, ahead of an anticipated market launch next decade. While it was originally thought the new model would draw heavily from the futuristic-designed i Vision Dynamics concept that previewed it, the i4's design looks like it will be quite conventional – so much so you could mistake it for a 4 Series...

2019 BMW X7 pricing and specs

The 2019 BMW X7 will launch in Australia with a two-model lineup, both powered by diesel engines, and the most affordable variant available from the get-go. It's a change from recent policy, where BMW would launch a more expensive, mid-grade variant and then add the price leader after the initial launch...

1997 BMW 523i review

This is my second E39 – both cars over the 200K mark, and both genuine second-hand vehicles. What a privilege it is to drive the E39. As soon as you sit in this car, you are wrapped in the leather seat, all controls are readily at hand, gauges clear and simple, and walnut trim understated but clearly rewarding you for your choice of vehicle...

2017 BMW X1 xDrive 25i M Sport review

After driving a Honda CR-V for the last eight years, my other (and arguably prettier) half was keen to upgrade the family truckster. In our pre-child days she had always driven small, zippy cars and was missing the feeling of a fun-to-drive car that was also easy to manoeuvre within the tight spaces characteristic of the concrete jungle...

1999 BMW 528i review

BMW E39 – The Pinnacle of Timeless and Uncompromised Automotive Driving Pleasure There was a time when German meant better. And that was from 1996–2003 with the BMW E39 5 Series. Globally acclaimed as the best luxury saloon car ever made, the E39 still sets benchmarks in modern cars, notably the VE Holden Commodore and the Hyundai Genesis...

2010 BMW 335i M Sport review

I have always been an E46 fan, having three cars in the family already: 320i, 325ci and a 330i. All great cars and loads of fun to drive. I always dreamed of owning an E46 M3, having test-driven numerous cars. I was scared away by the M-Tax on replacement parts, and so could not commit to buying one...
