Road & Track has its turn behind the wheel of the 535i

After the recent press event in Portugal, automotive journalists are wasting no time in giving their impressions of the 535i. So far, its smooth sailing. This time, Road and Track magazine share their thoughts. Below are some select quotes, but follow the links at the bottom of the page for the full article!

Quote:
It takes only a couple laps of Estoril, the famed Iberian circuit that held Formula 1 races in its mid-1980s heyday, to find that the new 6th-generation BMW 535i handles with the precision and fluidity expected from the marque.
Quote:
The small twin turbos of its predecessor are gone, replaced by a somewhat larger twin-scroll unit, but rest assured that lag is all but unnoticeable. Torque is delivered over a broad range;
Quote:
Styling looks edgy and dynamic, kind of a smaller 7 Series with extra attitude, but without the granny-glasses headlights and odd sloping trunk cutline of the 5 it replaces.
