2014 BMW 335 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

BMW’s compact 3 Series is the luxury automaker’s bread-and-butter model. It’s available as a sedan, hatchback (Gran Turismo) or wagon, and numerous drivetrains are offered including hybrid and diesel versions. The five-seat 3 Series comes with rear- or all-wheel drive and competes with the Audi A4, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

(Skip to details on the: 3 Series Gran Turismo, ActiveHybrid 3)

New for 2014
The 3 Series Sport Wagon rejoins the lineup after skipping a model year, and a new Gran Turismo version that combines coupe and hatchback styling is also new. A new turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine makes its debut in the 328d and gets an EPA-estimated 32/45 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive. The new 4 Series coupe has replaced the 3 Series coupe in BMW’s lineup. 

New standard features include a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, dark burl walnut wood trim and a 10-year subscription to BMW’s emergency communication system that includes automatic collision notification. Models with the available navigation system get a new iDrive controller with a text-input touchpad.

3 Series Gran Turismo
The 3 Series Gran Turismo is a new four-door coupe like hatchback version of BMW’s compact luxury car. Though styling cues are shared with the 3 Series Sport Wagon, the 3 Series Gran Turismo is a larger car overall, measuring nearly 8 inches longer and more than 3 inches taller. The result is a roomier cabin, especially for backseat passengers who enjoy 2.8 inches of extra legroom, and the front and rear seats are positioned higher for easier entry and exit.

  • 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (328i)

  • Newly standard leather-wrapped sport steering wheel

Best sport car I ever owned!

Fast, sexy, beautiful, performance, a true head turner! Powered by a Turbocharged 3.0 Liter 6 Cylinder that offers 300hp coupled with an 8 Speed Automatic transmission with sport mode. This unique combination enables our Rear Wheel Drive sedan to sprint to 60mph in 5.4 seconds while attaining near 32mpg on the highway.
