Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

For $88,720, some might expect two bedrooms and a bath, not the two doors and the $3,000 gas-guzzler tax on the '93 BMW 850i we tested. In addition to dual air bags and anti-lock brakes, there are some novel touches in the 850i. They include a right
outside mirror that tilts curbward when you engage reverse, for the visibility to avoid hitting pedestrians; a coin holder hidden in the driver's door; and windows that automatically open and close a crack to make it easier to open and close the
doors. But the tires had a tendency to wobble on uneven pavement; the backs of thefront seats rest against the rear seats, so that there is no rear-seat legroom; and the phone sits exposed on top of the console, making it a sittingtarget. The
5-liter, 296-horsepower V-12 engine boasts a 0-to-60 m.p.h. time of 6.1seconds but is rated at 12 m.p.g. city/18 highway, earning the $3,000 penalty.
