BMW X4 (2014) first official pictures

Rated 3 out of 53

Ollie Kew, 06 March 2014 10:00

This is the new BMW X4. BMW’s latest niche-buster was previewed as a close-to-production concept in April 2013, but now you’re looking at the showroom-ready X4 that’ll reach UK dealerships in July 2014. Is the BMW X4 just a shrunken X6? In effect, yes. BMW is applying its purist-riling but commercially successful SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) template to the BMW ...

BMW 2-series Active Tourer (2014) first official pictures

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Ollie Kew, 14 February 2014 10:00

BMW purists, look away now. Family guys with growing broods and a penchant for premium badges: step right up. This is the new BMW 2-series Active Tourer. It’s a front-wheel drive-five seater MPV with a choice of turbocharged three- and four-cylinder engines. Prices will start at less than £23,000, and it’s on sale in the UK in September 2014. A ...

BMW X3 facelift (2014) first official pictures

Rated 3 out of 53

Ollie Kew, 05 February 2014 23:00

The revised BMW X3 plays spot-the-difference with, on the outside at least, BMW having done a pretty convincing job of turning it into an X5 lookalike. The new X3 goes on sale in June 2014, costing from £31k. The facelift looks subtle – let’s concentrate on the BMW X3’s engine tweaks. The X3 has an all-diesel line-up, teamed with either ...

BMW 4-series Gran Coupe (2014) first official pictures

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Ollie Kew, 01 February 2014 23:01

BMW has either just created the next big thing, or officially run out of ideas. This is the 4-series Gran Coupe. Of course, it’s not actually a coupe at all – it has four doors – but being part of the 4-series family, it’s sleeker than the 3-series saloon. It’s the third and final 4-series model (following the two-door coupe ...

Hot laps: BMW 435i vs M3 winter tyre test 3

Rated 4 out of 54

Ben Barry, 31 January 2014 08:50

How much difference can winter tyres make to your car’s performance and safety? In snowy conditions, choosing between winter and summer tyres is like choosing between crampons and slippers, but plenty of British winters pass with barely a flake touching the ground. So it’s understandable that most of us are reluctant to fork out for winter tyres. Yet tyre makers ...

the CAR editorial team, 23 January 2014 15:20

From superminis to hybrid supercars, 2014 is set to be a real treat for car-lovers, as the industry continues its fight against recession, eco-fears, and Generation Y’s apparent disillusionment with the automobile. There’s a wealth of stunning new metal on the way this year, and CAR has prepared previews of the top 20 hottest vehicles coming your way in the ...

CAR Most Wanted of 2014: BMW M3 and BMW M4

Rated 3 out of 53

the CAR editorial team, 23 January 2014 07:45

It’s tempting to feel that BMW was actually trying to be controversial with the new hot 3-series. For a start, the M3 Coupe is dead. Just as the two-door Three is now the 4-series (confused yet?), the flagship 4-series wears the new ‘M4’ badge. If you want that hallowed M3 badge on your driveway, it’s the four-door M3 only for ...

BMW vs Winter: all you need to know about BMW xDrive

Rated 1.5 out of 51.5

the CAR editorial team, 21 January 2014 15:00

According to BMW, its ‘xDrive’ all-wheel drive system is more popular than any other premium brand’s four-wheel drive drivetrain. That’s right: in the UK, xDrive outsells Audi’s famous quattro system, not to mention Mercedes ever-expanding 4Matic range, and all-wheel drive version of Jaguar’s XF and XJ. If you had to name an all-wheel drive BMW off the top of your ...
