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...

Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce v BMW 330i M Sport v Jaguar XE 25t R-Sport comparison

Compact luxury sedans remain a vital part of the business case for any serious player in the premium car market. While luxury car-makers seek to diversify and future-proof by making small entry cars and more crossover SUVs, sedans still sit at the heart of what their makers represent. Brand loyalty aside, the BMW 3 Series is the definitive luxury compact sports sedan...

2017 BMW 330i M-Sport review

Looks? Tick. Sporty performance? Tick. A ride that won't totally destroy your lumbar spine? Tick. The purchase of my 2017-plated 330i was a big change from the cars I have previously owned (Think WRX/Golf GTI), and being an ageing millennial it was time to change into something a little bit more mature...

1995 BMW 318i review

I’m CarAdvice’s senior editor, which means I have the privilege and honour of covering the industry for Australia’s best auto title. As such, I’m never without a new car or three to evaluate. But as amazing as such a job is, I’ve always thought it important to have a palate cleanser. Driving something older, with character, gives a great contrast...

2014 BMW 316i review

I have been driving this BMW 316i for more than 1200 days and upgraded to an Audi A6 a few months ago, so it might be the right time to share my experience. - Driving experience: With a small engine, it is not quick, especially driving on the freeway – not as nailed as a 328i I tried. When you switch to the Sports mode, you can feel the arguably good driving experience in most situations under 80km/h...

2012 BMW 318d Touring Sport Line review

I do not like SUVs. I know that I am in the minority and that SUVs are steadily taking over the world, but between you and me, a station wagon is much better. As SUVs become more popular (and interestingly more car like), I cannot help but think what most people really need, and should be buying, is a station wagon. Of course, I am not talking about off-roading here...
