2021 BMW X2 M35i review

BMW's high-riding hot hatch boasts a gutsy high-performance engine, but does it have the ride quality to match?

2021 BMW 520i LCI review

BMW’s full-size sedan comes in for a midlife update, giving the 5 Series a boost alongside refreshed competition.

2021 BMW M2 CS track review

Though it may be the smallest and least powerful member of the M family, don't discredit the BMW M2. Especially not in feisty CS spec.

2021 BMW M3 Competition track review

Since the new BMW M3 has 'Competition' in its name, where better to get acquainted than a racetrack?

Video: 2021 BMW 4 Series Australian first drive review

The experiment worked. BMW’s attempt to separate the 4 Series range from the 3 Series by, well, calling it the 4 Series, has been successful enough to warrant a second generation.

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 330i v Jaguar XE HSE comparison review

Can the new BMW 3 Series reclaim its Best Mid-sized Sports Sedan crown from the Jaguar XE?

2020 BMW M550i v Audi S6 comparison

Heavy-hitting performance and high levels of luxury meet in this pair of stately sedans.

2020 BMW X5 M50i v Mercedes-AMG GLE53 comparison

A family SUV doesn't make a great sports car, and vice-versa. These two bulked-up family freighters buck the trend, with one in particular doing a very convincing job of being both things.

2000 BMW 3 30i review

Our family have owned many BMWs over the years, and when it came to finding a car for my ‘first’ car I didn’t look further than the E46 - in particular the 330i M54b30 sedan. I believe for the price it is the best all round car you can get. Yes it is true that maintenance and repairs aren’t cheap, however we must remember these cars were $90,000 when new and we get them down for basically nothing, so we can’t expect them to be perfect...

2014 BMW X3 xDrive20d review

I was looking for an SUV that was economical as we drive every weekend to our beach house in Blairgowrie, Victoria. I was working for a media buying company that handled BMW and I could access vehicles off their Press and Executive fleet. As it turned out our vehicle had also been used by Drive and a couple other publications. My budget was $65k and the X3 was my choice...

2020 BMW 1 M135i xDrive review

Probably the most hated 1 Series ever made but I could beg the differ. I think it's better. The new 1 Series is a step ahead of its predecessor in some areas; yes it's lost the beautiful B58 and has switched to a transverse layout, but it gains an AWD system too. This won't just be a comparison to the old one but also a review of the car for what it is - a well-handling and quick hatch...

2001 BMW 330Ci review

I've owned my 330Ci for just over a year now. My previous car history has been a Subaru Liberty (4th Gen 3.0), a BMW 135i ('09 E82), and a Mazda MX-5 ('99 NB8A), with each being manual. The MX-5 lasted me four years but needed some more space, and considering I'd almost gotten an E46 for my first car, I was bound to inevitably come full circle and get one...
