If you are in the market for a new ride, BMW’s 2017 lineup is destined to leave you impressed. BMW continues to develop world-class vehicles that stand out from the crowd. Here are three of the hottest BMW models on the market.
The 2017 BMW 230i Coupe is the perfect match for the drivers who desire a daily dose of driving excitement. Not only does the new 230i look stunning, but it also surrounds drivers with a long list of exciting features. Furthermore, the small coupe continues to offer a top-notch level of crash protection.
Under the hood of the new 230i sits a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. BMW has tweaked it to churn out a potent 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. While the eight-speed automatic transmission is remarkably responsive, some drivers won’t be able to resist the six-speed manual gearbox. With a 0-60 time of around 5.3 seconds, the new 230i is certainly quick enough to keep a smile on your face. Drivers will also love the coupe’s fuel efficiency, which tops out at an economical 33 mpg.
As expected, the 2017 BMW 230i comes loaded with premium features. BMW’s iDrive infotainment system allows drivers to easily find their favorite apps. Some of the other standard goodies include Bluetooth technology, an eight-way driver seat, and HD radio.
Very few convertibles can match the BMW Z4’s fun factor. Featuring a sleek hood and a short trunk, the Z4 definitely commands a lot of attention on the road. A luxurious cabin makes it even more appealing.
You can now choose from two dynamic engines. While the turbocharged four-cylinder engine returns extra fuel economy, the boosted six-cylinder engine develops a monstrous 300 horsepower. When stepping on the accelerator, the heart-pounding 35is model rips to 60 mph in less than five seconds.
One of the Z4’s best qualities is its ultra-smooth ride. You can take a weekend road trip without sacrificing any comfort. A driver-focused cockpit helps keep drivers engaged at all times. Some of the quality features include leather upholstery, a high-powered sound system, and a wide-screen infotainment display. To give you an extra sense of protection in rainy weather, BMW equips every trim with self-drying brakes.
The 2017 BMW M5 sports sedan offers the optimum combination of performance and passenger comfort. It certainly displays BMW’s ability to develop iconic driving machines. All versions of the M5 flaunt an aerodynamic body kit and a stunning set of performance wheels.
Power comes from a turbocharged V-8 engine, which pumps out a jaw-dropping 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. A 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds makes the M5 one of today’s quickest sports sedans. Aside from its mind-numbing acceleration, the M5 also handles the road like a legitimate track car.
While behind the wheel, you will be able to travel in pure luxury. Special multi-contour seats comfortably hug your body throughout the day. Like an old-school sports car, the new M5 features a race-bred gauge cluster and a three-spoke steering wheel. Some of the high-end features consist of a Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system, navigation, and smartphone integration.
Safety is yet another one of the BMW M5’s strong points. Aside from its superb crash protection, the M5 also comes equipped with one of the segment’s most powerful braking system. Several advanced driving aids are available, including active cruise control and lane departure warning technology.
