2023 BMW XM Prototype Previews a Different Kind of M

What's in a flagship? As a torchbearer for its brand, it not only must bring more of everything found in the models positioned below it, it also must do everything better. Or so the thinking goes. Which makes it a curious—and controversial—decision for BMW's M performance group to choose a big, luxurious SUV, the 2023 XM plug-in hybrid, as both its new lead act and the first M-exclusive model since the M1 supercar of the 1970s. But these are the times we live in. Fortunately, they don't preclude such a vehicle from being surprisingly good to drive.

Say Hello To The 2023 BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series is a true icon of the German automotive landscape, and the global one too, for that matter. It's been around for decades, and while some generations are better than others, they all have the same goal: to be the best. The current G20 generation was launched in 2019, so it's due for an update, and while some markets have given us an early preview of what to expect, we've had little more than rumors to help us as we try to predict what changes are coming for the segment-defining benchmark. Fortunately, the time for speculation has now come to an end, and the new 2023 BMW 3 Series is here to show Audi and Mercedes who's boss.

This Is Our Best Look Yet At The BMW XM

The BMW XM is arguably the most hated car on the internet right now, but while the Concept model that previews the final production version is certainly designed to go viral, it appears that BMW is showing a little bit of restraint with the final design. Numerous spy shots have already suggested that the jaggedness and extremism of its design will be pared back somewhat, and now we have our first clear look at the final styling and it confirms that, while this will still be a very controversial machine, it will be slightly more conventional than originally anticipated. Not much, but a little.

2023 BMW 3 Series First Look: The Sport Sedan Is a Notch Sportier

The seventh-generation BMW 3 Series, despite somewhat ironically ranking seventh among our list of current compact sedans on sale at the time of this publishing, is a huge global sales hit. BMW says it's moving more units and selling faster than any 3 Series before it, cresting 1.1 million cars sold since the latest-gen was introduced in 2018. That would explain the extremely conservative approach to the refreshed styling of the 2023 BMW 3 Series, now with slightly more edge for a sportier character.

BMW has given the 3-Series a handful of updates for the 2023 model year, the automaker announced in a press release Tuesday. The biggest change, aside from the revised front fascia, is a 48-volt mild-hybrid system added to the twin-turbo six-cylinder in the performance-oriented M340i.

McLaren and BMW Could Be Teaming Up (Again) on a New Line of Electric Supercars

Click here to read the full article. The chemistry that brought us a legendary McLaren F1 could be coming back—just in time for the electric revolution. The British hypercar maker is reportedly looking to join forces with BMW to create a new line of electric supercars. MotorAuthority reported last week that a “Memorandum of Understanding” for the project, which was signed by the two automakers back in March, could lead to the development of a new zero-emissions platform for McLaren’s future sports cars, supercars and hypercars. The plan is that the folks at BMW’s M division will utilize that classic German engineering...

It's Time To Get Excited About The BMW M3 Wagon

It's just as painful for us to report on a car that America won't be getting as it is for you to read about it, but the BMW M3 Touring is just too special to ignore. With BMW M providing an in-depth look at its journey from the concept phase to production and beyond, we are truly enthralled. Most recently, BMW M's engineers showed us all the unique touches that the first-ever production BMW M3 wagon is getting to handle the power from its S58 3.0-liter turbocharged motor, and now it's time to see if all those hardware upgrades have been effective. So strap in, and let's take a lap of the Nurburgring with BMW M test driver Frank Weishar.

The BMW M4 CSL Will Stand Out In A Crowd

The BMW M4 CSL went from being a highly likely possibility in October last year to an open secret in November. Then, early this month, BMW officially teased the car for the first time, before deleting the social media post in which shadowy images were contained (and later reuploading it). We're not sure why that happened, but now that the news is official, BMW is making sure everyone knows about it. The next teaser arrived with barely a blur of the car visible just five days ago. The next day, another blurry image was posted, followed by another blurry shot the day after. But now BMW M is slowly feeding us clearer design details, and these confirm that the car will certainly be hard to miss.
