What it is: BMW's compact 3 Series is the luxury automaker's bread-and-butter model. It's available as a sedan, wagon or Gran Turismo hatchback and as an M3 performance sedan.
Numerous drivetrains are offered, including turbocharged gas four-cylinder engines (320i and 330i models); a turbo-diesel four-cylinder (328d); a turbo gas six-cylinder (340i); and a plug-in hybrid (330e).
The five-seat 3 Series comes with rear- or all-wheel drive (designated xDrive) and competes with the Audi A4, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
LED headlights are now standard, and BMW’s iDrive 6.0 multimedia system with a touchscreen is available. An available Shadow Sport Edition Package includes 18-inch black-accented wheels, a gloss-black twin-kidney grille, smoked taillights and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel.
