BMW 3 Series Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

The 3 Series has been among BMW India’s best sellers in the country. The previous generation (E90) kicked off the Bavarian automaker’s innings in India and quickly catapulted it to the top of the sales charts in the luxury space.  It was only six years later - in 2012 - that BMW introduced the new generation of the 3 Series. BMW hasn’t reinvented the wheel with the new 3, they’ve simply tweaked the recipe to make it better. Have they succeeded?

Pros
  • Silky smooth petrol motor has enough grunt to keep you happy.
  • Torquey diesel engine loves to be pushed hard. Can be quite fun to drive!
  • Ride quality. Surprisingly forgiving for daily commutes, just about there for spirited driving.
  • Shifts from the 8-speed ZF gearbox are lightning quick.
Cons
  • Rear seat has average legroom and headroom. Best to be in the driver’s seat.
  • Petrol variants priced on par with the diesel. Does not justify the price tag.

Stand Out Features

  • The M Sport variant adds a sporty character to the already fun diesel 3 Series.

CarDekho Verdict

Among the barrage of options in the entry-level luxury car space, the BMW 3 Series is the one to pick if you enjoy driving more than anything else. It has the right blend of features, quality and space - but the driving dynamics outshine its immediate rivals by a considerable margin.
