The BMW 3 Series Touring isn't the roomiest estate in the world, but if you just need a bit more practicality than the saloon offers, it's a great buy. Fantastic to drive, smart inside and has one of the best infotainment systems on the market.

Brings an even more aggressive look, although you’re not getting a whole lot more than added style for your money with 18in wheels, digital instruments and a bigger 10.3in infotainment screen being the main upgrades. The ride is firm on standard M Sport suspension, so think about adding optional adaptive M suspension – it's part of the expensive M Sport Pro package but it makes the ride a lot smoother.

This plug-in hybrid model can run on electric power alone for around 30 miles and the battery takes 6 hours to charge from empty if you plug into a regular domestic three-pin socket, which falling to an official 3hrs 36min if you plug into a proper electric car charging point using the optional type 2 lead. There's also a 2.0-litre petrol engine to take care of your longer journeys and with both power sources working together, acceleration is really brisk.
