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, models like the Infiniti G35, Lexus IS, and Audi A4 offer compelling alternatives.
