The 2015 M235i hearkens back to core BMW values, being an excellent everyday driver with impressive performance characteristics. BMW makes much of its cutting-edge tech available in the car, but it comes at a high price.
The following cars represent the most technically advanced available.
BMW introduces the 2016 7 Series, the top of its lineup, redesigned with carbon fiber in the body structure and a new touchscreen, gesture-controlled iDrive system.
The 2015 BMW M5 tries to be all things to all drivers: comfortable, configurable, and brutally fast. With the aid of a lot of expensive technology, it delivers on nearly all fronts.
The 2015 BMW X5 M seems to defy physics with its performance technology, letting it take turns at tremendous speed, but the sports focus of this SUV takes away some of its practicality.
It's no surprise that the 2015 BMW 740Ld xDrive is a comfortable cruiser, but the big Bimmer handles like a much smaller sport sedan.
At a starting price of $38,850 the 228i Convertible is hardly cheap, but it is a beauty.
Don't call it an SUV. BMW's 567-horsepower "sport activity vehicle" defies the laws of physics on one of America's greatest race circuits.

With excellent power and handling, the 2015 BMW M4 makes for an intense ride on backroads and will really shine on the track, but it falls short on comfort for day-to-day transportation.
