Introducing the BMW 3 Series

Both an iconic car for BMW and an icon in its own right. The BMW 3 Series has been the textbook executive saloon car for many generations since its birth in 1975.

Living up to its reputation as a fine driver's car, the latest seventh generation model is now even more refined, responsive and a perfect evolution of the BMW 3 Series legacy.

But just how good is this latest generation? The 320d received a five-star rating in the Autocar Awards for 2019 - an accolade few cars receive. Let's take a look at the other reasons as to why the BMW 3 Series is still at the top of its game.

Design and Practicality

BMW 3 Series Front

The latest BMW 3 Series saloon has evolved using a more emotive design language, whilst still holding onto and expressing the iconic 3 Series heritage and history.

It is still unmistakably a BMW 3 Series and adopts sharp flowing lines which complement the car's sculptured contours. This has ensured that the BMW 3 Series still features the solid foundations of the instantly recognisable silhouette and of course features a new take on the iconic twin kidney grilles, along with adopting a wider stance.

Available in a range of trims, including Sport, M Sport and M340i xDrive, each individual trim expresses its own unique style to ensure the 3 Series blends its iconic silhouette perfectly, no matter the version.

Interior and Technology

BMW 3 Series Interior

First impressions are everything, and the latest 3 Series is no exception, ensuring anyone who experiences the interior is taken back by fine material choice, ergonomic controls and state-of-the-art technology.

BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant ensures that driving any new 3 Series will be a totally tech-laden experience. Simply say "Hey BMW" to make your 3 Series perform multiple tasks quickly, easily and hands-free, making driving more inclusive than ever.

A brand-new digital instrument cluster, widescreen infotainment display and beautifully crafted interior switchgear ensure this is the slickest BMW 3 Series interior ever created.

Economy and Performance

BMW 3 Series Badge

Petrol, diesel and even Plug-in Hybrid Electric are all available in the extensive BMW 3 Series range.

For those wanting typical 3 Series excellent economy, a 320d will easily return over 50 mpg. If you are at the opposite end of the 3 Series spectrum and want unbelievable performance, then the the M340i offers a 3.0-litre petrol engine with 374 bhp, good for 0-62 mph in just 4.4 seconds, whilst still able to achieve 34 mpg.

Or how about having your 3 Series electrified... with the 330e Plug-in Hybrid you can. Travel around 35 miles on electricity alone, whilst having the convenience of a TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine.
