BMW offers a robust portfolio of vehicles
- 2 Series: Launched in 2013, the compact 2 Series is still in its first generation and is offered as both a coupe and convertible. This nimble model is great for professionals driving it on daily commutes or weekend trips out of town.
- 3 Series: The current version (2018 to present) of this sedan offers even more room than the 2 Series. It also packs a variety of powertrain types, including a diesel and multiple gasoline options. The 3 Series is great if you're a professional who needs a smart vehicle but doesn't require the additional space of an SUV.
- 4 Series: The 4 Series is sold as a coupé, convertible, and in the longer, sportier Gran Coupé form. All body styles make for a fun road-trip car for two adults while offering enough room for a couple of kids in the back seat.
- 5 Series: An excellent choice for executives, the 5 Series has been blending practicality and performance since its debut in 1972. Boasting ample room for five (the 2019 model has 36.5 inches of legroom in the back), the lineup is highlighted by the M5, which utilizes a 4.4L turbocharged V8 producing 600 horsepower and 553 lb.-ft. of torque for 2017-to-present models.
- 6 Series: An odd one out of the group, the uniquely styled 6 combines the lower ride height of a sedan with the taller silhouette and tailgate of a crossover. While not as commonly seen on city streets, the grand tourer provides a supple ride even over bumpy surfaces and is perfect if you don't need the size of a full-blown utility vehicle.
- 7 Series: Few cars can match the level of comfort and luxury of a 7 Series. The latest (2015–2019) full-size brand flagship may be purchased either as a standard four-door or in an extended-wheelbase trim, which yields plenty of rear legroom (44.4 inches in the 2019 model). That makes it perfect for anyone needing to frequently ferry passengers.
- X1: First arriving back in 2009, the X1 helped to kick off the subcompact-crossover craze that has taken the industry by storm. While relatively small in size, this vehicle offers features found in bigger siblings such as flexible storage and xDrive all-wheel drive.
- X2: An all-new model introduced in 2016, this crossover is perfect if you simply enjoy driving. Possessing a lower ride height and center of gravity compared to other SUVs, all X2s in North America are powered by a BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder motor.
- X3: As is the case with the 3 Series, the middle-of-the-pack X3 is a jack of all trades. The third-generation model (2018 to present) arrived in showrooms just a year ago. Boasting loads of tech seen in most of the brand's contemporary products, it has grown significantly in size as well, gaining three inches in length and a wheelbase stretched out by two inches.
- X4: Intended to be a sportier fastback variant of the X3, BMW calls the X4 a “coupé," referring to styling cues like the long hood, shrunken greenhouse, and steeply sloping rear window. The current 2019 offering, built in South Carolina, has two available grades: the xDrive 30i and the even sportier M40i.
- X5: Long considered the benchmark for luxury SUVs, the X5 has undergone a lot of changes since being unveiled right before the start of the Millennium. In 2015, the German automaker even threw an electric version into the mix with the xDrive40e plug-in.
- X6: Akin to what the X4 is to the X3, the X6 is a sleeker take on the X5. Officially coined a Sports Activity Coupé (SAC), its wind-swept good looks are complemented by a range of turbocharged engines such as the second-gen (2015–2019) xDrive50i which packs a 4.4L V8 that churns out 445 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque.
