If you enjoy having the cool wind flowing through your hair during those summer drives at night, you know you’re a convertible person. Lucky for you, BMW offers several convertible models to choose from that are also available as coupes. Starting with the 4 Series ($45,000 MSRP), redesigned in 2014 from the 3 series, the 2019 models come with more standard equipment than ever before. Available in two trims, the 430i and 440i mostly only differ by engine performance. With the 440i having 78 more horsepower and $7,000 higher MSRP than the 430i, choosing between these two trims mainly depends on how sporty you want your sports convertible to be.
Next, we have the fully redesigned BMW Z4 roadster ($50,000 MSRP). After a brief hiatus of three years, BMW introduced the brand new Z4 for 2019. Available in only one trim for 2019, the 30i comes with a turbocharged engine with 255 horsepower. For 2020 the Z4 adds another trim that offers even more performance, the M40i. Able to go 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, we actually had the pleasure of driving this bad boy around earlier this year, and the Z4 was an absolute blast to drive. To learn more about what features the M40i offers and our opinions on it, check out our review of this gorgeous convertible.
Among the most luxurious convertible/coupe models BMW has to offer is the 8 Series ($88,000 MSRP). Matching the lofty price tag of the vehicle, the M850i is powered by a monster V8 engine with 523 horsepower. It is as comfortable as it is a joy to drive, and if you can afford this palace on wheels, we would recommend leasing this automotive masterpiece.
From a brand known more for its sporty cars, you wouldn’t necessarily expect BMW to offer family-oriented vehicles. However, BMW caters to those with families with their X series of crossovers and SUVs. BMW’s line of SAVs (Sport Activity Vehicles) are their entries into the luxury SUV market. They have multiple variants of their take on a compact crossover, midsize SUV, and large SUV. With some models geared more towards performance and looks, those are not included in this list.
The best overall subcompact crossover for families from BMW is the X1 ($35,000 MSRP). This relatively cheap luxury crossover is quite spacious and handles very well. Designed to include many areas for cargo storage, don’t let the size of the X1 fool you. With its 27.3 cubic feet of trunk space, the X1 beats its similar-sized competitors in the Audi Q3 and Mercedes GLA. The X1 is also equipped with standard safety features such as forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. All in all, the X1 is a great compact crossover that does many things well and excels when it comes to cargo space and handling.
If you’re looking for something bigger, the newly redesigned X5 ($59,000 MSRP) may be the midsize SUV for you. Newly redesigned for 2019, now with more cabin room than ever before. With a 335 horsepower engine and 33.9 feet of trunk space, the X5 isn’t a class leader in either category but excels in each nonetheless. Also featuring BMW’s state of the art iDrive infotainment system, the X5 offers plenty of advanced tech features that will be sure to appease the entire family. An overall tranquil cabin and plenty of tech inside and out, the X5 is a great option for those that are looking for a midsize SUV that can do pretty much everything well.
The realm of large SUVs is very competitive, as Volvo, Audi, and Mercedes all are vying for the large SUV crown. With three rows and seating for up to seven, the BMW X7 ($74,000 MSRP) offers ample head and leg room for you and any passengers you might have. Much like the X5, the X7 doesn’t lead its class in many areas, but it is extremely well rounded and can do a little bit of everything.
