What is BMW Doing with the i-Brand?

Recently we’ve seen news that BMW will add the i-Brand technology to at least one Mini model and to the BMW X3. This announcement makes me wonder if BMW is going to continue to use the i-Brand as just a testing ground for the continued […]

Fun in a Two-Door BMW

The 2015 BMW M235i xDrive is certainly one of the most engaging and sporty luxury coupes from BMW.  Amazingly this little Beemer comes with AWD which is the xDrive for BMW but when you look at the entire lineup you can see that BMW has […]

The Newness of the 2016 BMW 3-Series

2016 BMW 3-Series

Year after year the BMW 3-Series was the sport sedan model others were trying to compete with and come anywhere near.

2015 BMW 2 Series

The old saying that “good things come in small package” is very true of the entire line of the BMW 2 Series. These cars have a great deal of power, performance and dynamics to enjoy and now for this year BMW has equipped two of them with all-wheel drive, answering the call from the masses to add this control to these great cars. Only offered with two doors on these small Beemers, the 2 Series gives BMW lovers a starting point to build their longstanding relationship with BMW and offers some of the best and most necessary luxury features on the market.

With the addition of the AWD (called xDrive for BMW) the 2 Series easily takes on the Audi A3 quattro and Mercedes-Benz CLA 4Matic to show off exceptional handling, precision control and a power punch that is unexpected in a small car of this caliber. All of this makes the 2 Series one of the best entry level luxury sport coupes available that can also be had as a convertible and comes in much less than the 4 Series.
