Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, aka BMW, has been manufacturing cars for well over a century at this point. In that time, they have certainly introduced the world to more than enough pieces of ground-breaking auto tech than one can count. Unfortunately, technology, in general, loses relevance over time and the automobile industry is no exception to that rule either.
So, if you are looking to buy a used car for regular driving, you should never buy a model that goes too far back into history in terms of manufacturing date. Striking that fine balance between outdated used cars and overpriced showroom models, here are three of the best BMW models to keep an eye out for.
2018 M2 Competition
The 2018 M2 Competition is considered by several auto enthusiasts as the best executive class coupes to have ever been released. At less than 1,600 kilograms, the M2 Competition’s unique S55 twin turbocharged engine allows the car to generate about 405hp (5,250-7,000 rpm) and a torque of 550 newton-metres (2,350-5,200 rpm). What this means is that this compact beast can reach 0-100 (km/h) in 4.2-4.4 seconds and max speeds of between 250 km/h-280 km/h! If you want a relatively affordable power dynamo at a fair pricefor the date, keep an eye out for used models in good condition.
2019 M4 Competition Package
One can argue that the BMW 2019 M4 Club Sport (CS) deserves to be on this list more than the standard fitted with the Competition Package. That argument would hold little value to anyone who knows what the real difference between the two is. In truth, the M4 CS only has about 50 newton-metres of torque and 10hp on the M4 CP. Despite the small difference in power and velocity, the price difference between the two is massive.
On top of that, the 2019 M4 CS is unnecessarily and significantly louder than the M4 CP by design. In other words, it almost feels like you are buying a car that provides you and those around you with the “illusion” of it being more powerful than it actually is. The 2019 M4 CP, on the other hand, is almost just as powerful, much less noisy, and packs in an amazing value for money package for everyone. Either way, you should be able to find used 2019 M4 CP or CS models for sale at SMK Performance in Essex. They always maintain an impressive collection of BMWs at their lot and both editions are quite popular.
2020 BMW X6 M50i
The 2020 BMW X6 is still new enough to cost you a pretty penny, but it might be worth it if you can get a good deal on a used car. Sporting a new, renovated, and more aerodynamic design, the 2020 BMW X6 M50i is 26mm longer than its predecessors. The 42mm longer, 15mm wider, and 6mm lower wheelbase is largely responsible for the improved aerodynamics of the 2020 X6 M50i.
It sports the same signature powerhouse twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 motor as some of the higher end models, easily generating 523hp and 750 newton-metres of torque like it’s nothing. However, we found the rehauled internal seating arrangement and materials to be the real winner here. The 2020 BMW X6 M50i is significantly more comfortable to sit in than any of its predecessors.
