BMW 3 Series Overview
The 3 Series is excellent, with commendable ride comfort, noise isolation, and fit and finish. The turbo four-cylinder makes the 328i quick yet returns a frugal 28-mpg overall. The 335i uses a smooth and punchy turbo six-cylinder. Handling is very capable, but steering feel isn't as sharp as past BMWs. The diesel 328d's 35-mpg overall is a standout in the class. A hybrid, an AWD wagon, and a less powerful 180-hp 320i version are also available. The AWD Gran Turismo is a stylized hatchback version. The ultra-high-performance M3 can give Porsches and Corvettes a run for their money. Reliability of the RWD 328i has dropped to below average; other versions are average. The 3 Series will get a 2016 freshening including a new six-cylinder engine and a plug-in hybrid.
