2021 BMW M3, M4 review: Prototype test

Just as we did with the 4 Series before it was unveiled, we've hit the track in BMW's new hero M4 coupe – and its M3 sedan twin – before a proper road test later this year.

2020 BMW Z4 sDrive20i review

The entry-level BMW Z4 roadster continues a long line of tradition for the German brand, offering open-top motoring with a modicum of sportiness.

2020 BMW M2 CS review: Track test

BMW's track-focused M2 CS is nearly upon us. As the swan song for this generation, we just had to get into one a little sooner than its mid-2020 Australian debut.

10 of the greatest station wagons ever

It’s no secret SUVs of all shapes and sizes have become the go-to vehicles for families, continuing to sell in numbers that makers of large, four-door sedans can only dream about now. The SUV boom has also claimed another automotive scalp, consigning the once-loved and humble station wagon to niche status...

Video: 2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe v Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan comparison

Which is quicker in the real world? We throw former racing driver Ian Dyk the keys to find out in a series a performance tests.

2020 BMW X5 M review

The BMW X5 M was one of the pioneers of the super-fast SUV segment, but cars like this are still an engineering marvel. How anyone can make a 2.3-tonne lump of metal slip through the air like a teardrop – even though it has the aerodynamic efficiency of a block of flats – boggles the mind.

2020 BMW Z4 sDrive20i v Toyota GR Supra GT comparison

They’re twins under the skin and both famous nameplates. But if you’re after the best driver’s car for about $90,000, do you pick the German roadster or Japanese coupe?

RANGE REVIEW: 2020 BMW 3 Series – which model should you buy?

The BMW 3 Series family currently comprises four engine and spec-level choices, kicking off with the 320i (there’s no 318i for now). Next step is the volume-selling 330i, then there’s the left-field 330e plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and finally the M340i xDrive flagship in lieu of the yet-to-be-released new M3 coming soon enough...

2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe v Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan comparison review

German four-door luxury performance cars have never been more attainable. But should buyers head for the car wearing an M badge or the letters AMG?

2020 BMW X3M Competition v Porsche Macan Turbo: Performance comparison review

The Macan Turbo and X3 M may wear practical SUV bodies, but are infused with the sports car DNA that made legends of the Porsche and BMW brands. So, which is the most worthy of the performance badges they wear?

2020 BMW 118i v Mazda 3 G25 Astina comparison

The most aspirational Mazda 3 model yet is our current mainstream small-car benchmark. Now it faces its toughest test – against the most affordable version of the new BMW 1 Series.

2021 BMW 2 Series coupe spy photos

The new-generation 2021 BMW 2 Series coupe has been spied testing in Mexico this week, adding credence to a pair of leaked photos that surfaced on Instagram in April. While those earlier shots revealed what we can expect from the new coupe's front and rear styling, these new on-road photos offer our best look yet at the new model's muscly proportions and overall shape...

How big is the boot? Every SUV in Australia, ranked smallest to biggest

If you're shopping for an SUV, it's likely you want to know a few important things. A good number of seats, an ample amount of power, an affordable price point, reliability, safety and – possibly most importantly – how much of your life you can cram into the boot...

2003 BMW 330i review

Late 90s/early 2000s European cars have always appealed to me. Considered by some as the golden age for the likes of Audi and BMW, nothing, to me at least, can beat them. So, when the time came for me to purchase a car, it seemed the logical choice. However, before I go any further, a quick disclaimer: I’m a high school student finishing my last year, so I don’t have years of motoring experience under my belt...

2018 BMW M3 review... sorta...

EDITOR'S NOTE: We'd planned to skip this one, but given it's April 1 today... why not? I’ll always remember this BMW Motorsport as my first European car. My first car was a Little Tikes Cozy Coup that Mummy and Daddy bought me when I was still crawling but I was just so embarrassed driving it through the inner suburbs with its lack of lights, its novelty character face and wide turning circle...

2013 BMW M3 review

It's easy to go into a drive in an M3 and get suckered into the hype-train. After all, I'm pretty sure if you look in the dictionary next to "best sports saloon" it won't be long before you stumble across a photo of the famous kidney-grilles (or a questionable load of sports-themed American bars)...

2013 BMW 5 35i review

My family and I have owned this 5 Series since 2016 and it has been garaged everyday, and washed at least once every two weeks. This car has been daily driven, and after four years I can say this has probably been the best car we have owned. The inline 6-cylinder twin-scroll turbo M Sport BMW has adjustable suspension which affords different driving dynamics...
