2014 BMW X5 Test Drive & Review
Steve pays tribute to a popular online car reviewer while showing off the
all-new 2014 BMW X5. He takes an in-depth look at the interior and
exterior of BMW's 3rd Generation Sports Activity Vehicle. Steve then
explores how it feels on the road and what really gives this Ultimate
Driving Machine its true character.
Rosenthal: New BMW M5 or Audi S6?
Which is the better car? The 2013 Audi S6, with a base of $73,400, or the
2014 BMW M5 starting at $92,800? There's no doubt the M5 has the power to
get it done, but for the price does the S6 have what it takes to steal the
show? Steve compares everything from handling and speed to style and value.

BMW 535i (F10) - A fast drive on the German Autobahn
Taking a BMW 535i (F10) for a fast drive on the Autobahn. Speed limiter
kicks in shortly before the speedo reaches 260 km/h. Strange: With the same
engine in the 3-series the limiter kicks in at 270. Nevermind the left
lane-hogging Ford Mustang
at 5:00 -- it was a jet pilot and probably didn't know how to drive :-p
Ein kurzer Sprint auf der Autobahn mit einem BMW 535i (F10). Der Limiter
regelt kurz vor 260 km/h ab. Eigenartig: Beim 3er mit dem gleichen Motor
geht er bis 270. Bitte den die linke Spur blockierenden Ford Mustang bei 5:00 nicht beachten -- es
war ein Jetpilot und der wusste wohl nicht, wie man Auto fährt :-p
2014 BMW i8 Review
What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.

driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.

Despite a sharper focus on comfort, BMW's latest 5 Series saloon is still a
popular choice for business buyers looking for a sporting executive model.
And although it looks plainer, the new 5 Series is more technologically
sophisticated and desirable than ever before. All cars get
'EfficientDynamics' equipment -- which includes a stop-start system on the
520d that cuts the engine in queuing traffic to save fuel. All of this
ensures that the 5 Series is fun to drive, and green, too. By far the
biggest seller is the 181bhp 520d, which returns an impressive 56.5mpg. SE
or M Sport trims are available, the latter bringing more aggressive styling
and firmer suspension.
