Auto Express gets behind the wheel of BMW's latest M Power car, the 1 Series M Coupe. Powered by a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine - a tweaked version of the unit from the 135i, it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW's performance models get these days -- it's a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive.
Factor in compact dimensions and you should have a spiritual successor to one of the most-loved M cars in history. But is it any good on UK roads? Auto Express took the wheel to find out.
Audi RS3 review - Auto Express
An intoxicating five-cylinder warble reverberates around the mountains as
we accelerate out of yet another switchback hairpin, all four tyres
scrabbling for grip. Of course, the craggy walls have heard a similar sound
That's because we're driving the new Audi RS3 Sportback up the famous Col
de Turini in the south of France -- the very place where its ancestor, the
original Sport Quattro, won the 1984 Monte Carlo Rally in the hands of
ex-world champion Walter Röhrl.
Porsche Panamera S Hybrid review - Auto Express
It's a car that's broken new ground in more ways than one. Not only is the
Porsche Panamera the firm's first four-door grand tourer, but now, with the
introduction of the Panamera S Hybrid, it's also the most fuel-efficient
model the firm has ever produced.
Capable of 41.5mpg and emitting only 159g/km of CO2, this Panamera is --
unbelievably -- more economical and cleaner than a VW Passat 1.8 TSI
petrol. Yet it still delivers the kind of performance you'd expect from a
Porsche. It can sprint from 0-62mph in only six seconds, while top speed is

We've already tested the new BMW M5 both on track and on road. And yes,
with a 552bhp twin-turbo V8 it has
But what is it like to live with and how does it cope over really long
distances? Is the new BMW M5 really the continent-slayer its predecessor --
with its limited range, manic engine and firm suspension -- failed to be?
There's only one way to find out: a mammoth road test from the Pyrenees in
northern Spain all way back to the UK.

BMW 5 Series Touring Video Review - Auto Express
We take a first drive of the new BMW 5 Series Touring to find out how it
stacks up to its German rivals.
Slightly bigger than before and packed with lots of clever features the new
BMW 5 Series Touring is designed to take on the Mercedes E Class Estate and
Audi A6 Avant.
Key features on the new 5 Series Touring include an opening glass rear
screen, an automatic luggage cover which retracts when you open the boot
and rear seats which can be lowered at the pull of a lever in the boot and
can also be spilt 40:20:40 for added practicality.
The BMW 5 Series Touring's total available boot space is 1670-litres -
that's up 60-litre on the old 5car. And while this still be may be
280-litres down on the Mercedes E Class Estate, the BMW pulls back some
ground with its superior driving experience.
The 5 Series Turing is fast, comfy, refined, and when the road gets twisty,
good fun too. And if you go for the 520d, which can do 54mpg, it's cheap to

It has more torque than the space shuttle and BMW claims it will do over
40mpg. BMW also says it won't be selling the car in the UK or the US, the
places that DRIVE is most commonly viewed. But when something has 3 turbos, you've got to go drive it at 155mph: no?

BMW 1M Coupe Review (M3 Fighters Pt.2) - Everyday Driver
BMWs 1M Coupe was made from the BMW parts bin and only offered for one
year. It was often discussed as even better than the E90 series M3. The
guys love the M3, so they took this 1M to the canyons to see who's the
best. And afterward they debate if this car or the Boss 302 is the better
