bmw i4 launched

BMW calls the new i4 a 'statement vehicle' – it’s the first all-electric premium BMW aimed at the traditional midsize segment. Due for launch in the UK in November 2021, the i4 uses a four-door gran coupé body style and offers a range of up to 367-miles. Three different models will be available at launch, including the first ever BMW M car with all-electric drive – the i4 M50. The entry-level models, the i4 eDrive40 Sport and i4 eDrive40 M Sport, offer a 340hp (317lb ft torque) electric motor with rear-wheel drive and a range of up to 367-miles. Both specifications include 18-inch alloy wheels and the Live Cockpit, plus standard equipment such as a reversing camera, Parking Assistant, automatic air conditioning, ambient lighting, LED lights front and back and acoustic…

The E21 Question? I’ve been hankering after an E30 3 Series for what feels like a lifetime but just as I find myself in a position to buy one I see that prices have rocketed. My fall back option has always been an E21, but they too seem to be rapidly increasingly in value. I’m left in a bit of a quandary – which model should I go for? I’m drawn to the E21 for its purity of line and increasingly bonafide classic car status – what do you think? Steve Johnson, via email The E21 nicely fits a gap between the 2002 and E30, in many ways offering the best of both worlds, and values are only going one way – it could suit you perfectly, Steve. We’d say that the 323i…

modern classics

As someone who adores the BMW brand since seeing my very first BMW in the late ‘80s when in primary school, I have found myself of late turning my car selection and purchase decision backwards. When friends and family move on to newer vehicles, I appear to be going the opposite way. And when I mean backwards, I mean the early 2000s or what I define as a “modern classic”. From a 530i to a 730d, an M135i to a M3; I have had a good taste of all of Munich’s products over the years but yet, I decided to travel back in time. What makes BMWs special for me is the exterior design consisting of four round headlamps with a reasonably sized kidney grill, good handling dynamics and a dash…

x7 xdrive40d m sport

It may come as a surprise, but the newest version of the BMW X7 is not electric or even a plug-in hybrid. Given the availability of the excellent straight-six petrol-electric plug-in powertrain elsewhere in the Bavarian carmaker’s range, it does seem a shame that there’s no news of an xDrive45e variant of the company’s biggest SUV. Instead, we bring you the xDrive40d. In fact, the xDrive40d is the only diesel version of the X7 currently listed for sale on BMW UK’s website, effectively replacing the entry-level xDrive30d and the M50d ‘M Performance Vehicle.’ And while the sole remaining derv drinker isn’t quite as high performing as the M-badged model, it has usefully more forward propulsion than the 30d. The new inline six-cylinder diesel in the 40d features two turbochargers, one of them…
