With­out a doubt, this year’s per­fect dream car is BMW’s 2019 M850i xDrive Coupe. And if you like great per­for­mance, im­pres­sive speed and sports­man style, by all means this is the car for you. BMW likes to mar­ket the 8 Series as the “Gen­tle­man’s Racer,” and it’s easy to see the in­flu­ence of mo­tor­sports in this all-new M850i xDrive Coupe. It can go from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 sec­onds thanks to its re­vised 4.4 liter twin-tur­bocharged V8 en­gine, and it boasts a top speed of 155 mph. In fact the en­gine makes 523 horse­power and 553 lb-ft of torque. Paired to an eight-speed au­to­matic, it seam­lessly sends power to its newly re­vised xDrive all-wheel drive sys­tem and rear-wheel steer sys­tem.

As for de­sign, the en­larged kid­ney grille and air breathers en­hance the stan­dard aero­dy­namic kit. El­e­gant 20-inch M spoke wheels add im­pec­ca­ble de­tail to its sporty look. When it comes to the in­te­rior, you can go clas­sic with so­phis­ti­cated neu­trals or choose some­thing with dare­devil ap­peal like a sassy red-and-black leather combo.

A LUXE SUV

If you’re think­ing SUV, BMW’s 2019 X7, the first seven-pas­sen­ger SUV from the Ger­man lux­ury au­tomaker, is one of the most lux­u­ri­ous on the mar­ket. Its ex­te­rior de­sign of in­tently fo­cused lines adds el­e­gance to its sporty styling. The X7 boasts a panorama glass roof that from the in­side pro­duces a sen­sa­tion of un­re­stricted spa­cious­ness, and its all-elec­tric cap­tain’s chairs ad­just for your per­son­al­ized com­fort. (You can even swap out the mid­dle-row bench seat for a pair of cap­tain’s chairs, which will re­duce seat­ing to six.)

Other note­wor­thy el­e­ments in­clude: elec­tric power split tail­gate and ad­justable load­ing height, 2-axle air sus­pen­sion, and a gen­er­ously sized 12.3-inch touch­screen dis­play. Pas­sen­gers re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the X7’s door de­sign. Its rear doors are longer than the front doors, which al­low for easy en­ter­ing and ex­it­ing from the se­cond and third rows.

From a techie point of view, the X7 iPer­for­mance badge de­notes the pres­ence of ground­break­ing BMW eDrive tech­nol­ogy al­lied with a BMW TwinPower Turbo gas en­gine. To­gether they cre­ate an ex­cep­tion­ally ef­fi­cient and dy­namic plug-in hy­brid pow­er­train that ex­cels in all driv­ing sit­u­a­tions—in­clud­ing run­ning with zero lo­cal emis­sions.
