The last time we drove BMW’s latest (and greatest) X3, it was only a few months back and we were really impressed with how much it has grown both in size and mannerisms.

Pleasant perception changing surprises don’t come by very often when you are handed the test keys to almost every new BMW that rolls off the showroom floor, but I think we’ve just experienced one of these moments after driving the BMW F45 2-series Active Tourer 225xe iPerformance (phew). Utilising a 134bhp 1.5 inline 3 petrol […]Read more "2ND Time’s the charm: Driving the BMW F45 225xe Active Tourer"
