Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 BMW 3-Series makes its strongest case in performance for luxury compact buyers’ attentions.

Pros
Classic look
Wide number of powertrains
Plenty of body styles (wagon!)
Great turbo-4 and 8-speed auto

Cons
Gets expensive, almost unnecessarily
Dated interior
Spartan base model
Competitors have caught up, or even passed the 3-Series

The 2018 BMW 3 Series should make the short list for shoppers seeking a compact luxury sport sedan. Whether enjoying its blend of features and refinement or pushing its smooth power and sharp handling to the limit, you'll be impressed.

PROS
Balances sharp handling with a ride quality that won't beat you up
Engine choices offer power, smoothness and fuel efficiency
Interior is upscale and spacious, with logical, easy-to-use controls

CONS
Storage for small personal items is limited
Base 320i model offers limited feature availability

Pros
Comfortable, spacious seats
Robust available engines
Handling blends agility with comfort

Cons
Few standard features
Options quickly increase price
Uninspiring standard engine

The 2018 BMW M6 lineup loses its iconic coupe, but the four-door Gran Coupe was always the more compelling choice

Pros
Arresting performance
Great handling
High-tech interior
Sexy Gran Coupe

Cons
No more coupe, not that anyone bought it
Hugely expensive
Rivals are compelling, too
Rather plump

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Like the M5 on which it's mechanically based, the 2018 BMW M6 Gran Coupe gets the full M division treatment, at least compared to the standard 6 Series Gran Coupe. That includes an immensely powerful turbocharged V8 with 560 horsepower (or an optional 600 hp), an upgraded suspension, stronger brakes and plentiful luxury.

PROS
Engine makes exceptional power
Interior is richly trimmed and well-equipped
Front seats offer impressive support and comfort

CONS
By sedan standards, offers modest headroom and rear-seat legroom
Feels big and heavy around tight turns
Commands significant premium over the M5 on which it's based
