    Space saver spare tire is listed as a $150 option. I would not get a car without it. Run flats can only get you 50 miles.

    Nice review! Any chance you could get your hands on the Mini Countryman Electric for a review?

    Does anyone else have an issue spending +$50K for a car with a 4-cylinder engine?

    Great design and details. Super clean cockpit. I'd have to have the straight 6 tho.

    It's something about these Driven reviews that I can't stop watching lol. I started watching while shopping for a pre owned vehicle and went with a 2013 Buick Lacrosse. I've been hooked ever since, great reviews.

    Can't fault that review, charming host, good knowledge and funny. Do Americans like diesels as much as we do in the UK?

    That is a very nice interior. I bet with all those options that car was not cheap. Great touring car

    It seems the first tier luxury cars are first tier for a reason. They just feel extra special with the legacy they've left, their craftsmanship and feel. Yes, the Genesis G80 offers similar features, but it doesn't look and feel as special. Sometimes I think 2nd tier luxury cars are what people buy to tide themselves over until they can make the big move for a BMW/Merc/Audi.

    I loved the last 5 series, this generation looks fatter and less aggressive. it seems like they designed it with old people in mind.

    Tom, while I love the look of beige leather seats in luxury cars, they always catch the blue dyes from jeans. Since you're into jeans, like me, does your personal car have beige seating? If so, how often to you have to clean it? I ask because I noticed the driver's seat in this BMW has already blue stains. Personally I only buy black interiors, but would love to have beige.
