Sedan

In some ways, this 2012 BMW 335i was a disappointment. A big part of BMW’s reputation has to do with its cars’ sport handling capabilities, something this car lacked. This particular 335i represents generally poor choices, not only in options but in what BMW is willing to let its cars become.

BMW may have built its reputation on excellent driving characteristics, but the 2011 740i shows that the company is equally good at cabin tech. Performance tech shines with the direct-injection, twin-turbo engine. The suspension and handling are also a tour de force.

Most automakers use the additional energy provided by a hybrid system to get away with a smaller gasoline engine, thereby maintaining expected power but reducing fuel use. BMW looked at that extra power and thought, “excellent, we can make our cars go even faster!”

With its power and high-tech handling, the 2013 BMW M5’s potential feels wasted on public roads, yet its driver-assistance and cabin-tech systems are the best in the business for road trips and daily commutes.

While impressive in its speed, handling, and cabin tech, the 2010 BMW X6 M is an expensive and impractical car, with all the weight of an SUV, but little of the interior space.
