Price Range (MSRP): $32,850 (2-Series) to $81,500 (7-Series)
BMW has upheld a long reputation as the “Ultimate Driving Machine”. Performance has always taken precedence for each of its luxury vehicles. For 2017, BMW continues its transition of replacing vehicles ending in “28” and “35” with upgraded “30” and “40” variants.
Let’s start with the agile 2-Series. It comes as a subcompact coupe or a convertible with rear- or all-wheel drive (xDrive). The newest additions to the 2-Series are the 230 and M240, which replace the outgoing 228 and M235.
The 3-Series line of compact sport sedans and wagons. The 330 and 340 receive new 330 Gran Turismo and 340 Gran Turismo versions, respectively. A Gran Turismo retains similar aesthetics to the regular sedan, but it replaces the trunk lid with a liftback for more convenient storage. Powering the 340 and 340 Gran Turismo is a 320-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. Rear-wheel drive comes standard and all-wheel drive is optional.
An entry-level 320, a 328d diesel model, and a 330e hybrid are also available. The 330e offers a 14-mile electric car range (approximately 240 miles total) and a fun driving experience. It is powered by a 248-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder combined with an electric motor mated an 8-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive.
The 4-Series line of sporty 2-door, 4-door, and convertible coupes also returns. It now includes the 430, 430 Gran Coupe, 440, and 440 Gran Coupe.
Few midsize luxury sedans are considered to be finer than the 5-Series that now includes the 530, 540, 535 Gran Turismo, and 550 Gran Turismo.
The 6-Series received minor exterior revisions last year. The 640 and 650 comes as a 2-door coupe or a long-body, soft-top convertible, while the 640 Gran Coupe and 650 Gran Coupe have 4-doors and a liftback. The Alpina B6 is available in very limited quantities as well.
Last year, the full-size 7-Series was given a complete redesign, which included a weight reduction, more interior amenities, and a longer wheelbase. The 740, 740e hybrid, and 750 make their return, while the Alpina B7 and M760 have been added to the lineup.
The subcompact X1 SUV comes with standard front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is optional.
The compact X3 and X4 crossovers share the same platforms, as do the midsize X5 and X6. A plug-in hybrid variant for the X5 is also available: the X5 eDrive.
The M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, M6 Gran Coupe, X5 M, and X6 M make up the high-performance line of BMW. BMW also continues to offer their i3 and i8 all-electric vehicles.
The Z4 has been discontinued.
