The 3-Series has long been the standard-bearer in what may be the most competitive segment in the industry. This entry level BMW offers an impressive combination of styling, performance, and luxury features for a German vehicle. The fifth-generation 3-series has grown significantly in length and width yet retains the agility and balance for which it is known. Offered with RWD and AWD, the 328i/328xi wagon is available with only the new 230-bhp inline-six. Buyers can choose a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Starting at around $35,000, the 3-Series wagon offers all the style and amenities of the sedan, with an extra dose of utility in the back.

What Changed:

The RWD model returns. Updates to the powertrain change the model designations to 328i and 328xi. Power increases to 230-bhp for the 3.0L inline-six.
