The 3-Series has long been the standard-bearer in what may be the most competitive segment in the industry. BMW offers an impressive combination of styling, performance, and luxury features for a German luxury sedan priced from $33,000. Offered in RWD and AWD versions, the 3-Series model range includes models with two numerical designations referring to differing versions of the same 3.0L inline-six cylinder engine. With the introduction of twin turbochargers to the engine range (335i), power is up to 230hp in 328i/328xi models and 300hp in 335i models. All models still offer a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Despite the numerous improvements to the 3-Series, competitive new models like the Infiniti G35, Lexus IS, and Audi A4 offer compelling alternatives.
Updates to the powertrain change the model designations to 328i, 328xi and 335i. Power is up 230-bhp for the 328i, while the 335i has 300-bhp/300 lb.-ft. 3.0L twin-turbo.
