  BMW X5 xDrive45e M Sport 2020 UK review A six-cylinder petrol engine and a bigger battery work wonders for BMW's plug-in hybrid SUVUp front is an excellent and comfortable driving position, while a digital instrument display presents information in adaptable and mainly easily legible style. Perceived quality is high, and while the driving position is a little more recumbent than that of some big SUVs (and the X5 feels slightly less spacious than some), there can be no mistaking the ambience of a very technologically advanced, expensively finished, modern-yet-luxurious family car.

BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe saloon .
"The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is good to drive and represents a stylish and upmarket alternative to a hatchback"The 2 Series GC’s looks are sure to grab attention because BMW's move to a larger kidney grille has been divisive. The nose is pure 1 Series, with a different grille design depending on the trim level you choose, while the rest of the car is somewhat more traditional. There's a curved roofline and a short 'fastback' tail with particularly wide rear LED lights, accentuating its width.
