The short-lived 1-series M model is dead for 2012. But the rest of the lineup is far from sluggish. The basic 128i is quick and relatively affordable. Moving up to the 300-hp 135i brings breathtaking acceleration and a standard sports suspension that nets delightful handling and a rough ride.
A redesigned 3-series sedan arrives in February. Slightly larger than before, the new 3-series has a bit more space inside, but BMW claims to have kept the weight from increasing. A new turbo four-cylinder powers the base version and boosts fuel economy. A 300-hp turbo six returns.
Think of the 5-series as a shrunken 7-series. Like the 7, it will please you with its refined manners and solid feel. A new turbo four-cylinder engine is onboard for 2012, offering great power and improved fuel economy. At the top of the range, the M5 returns with a 560-hp twin-turbo V-8.
The 7-series lineup calls for decisions. You have a choice of wheelbases, turbocharged engines, transmissions, all-wheel drive and number of seats. The 740i/Li is nearly as quick as the more expensive 750i/Li and provides superior fuel efficiency. Alpina B7 and 760Li are powerfully decadent.

New last year, the latest X3 is a better-riding and more refined SUV. The interior feels spacious and the materials are on par with the pricier X5. The eight-speed automatic is excellent with both engines. Opt for the turbocharged six if power and impressive acceleration are priorities.
The base Z4 drops its six-cylinder engine for a turbo four-cylinder. Horsepower falls slightly, but torque rises. Twin-turbo sixes provide either 300 or 335 horsepower. Not quite as sporty as a Porsche Boxster, the Z4 is more of a luxury roadster with a performance edge.
