Not Sure, Which car to buy?

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 2 Series

    • Looks stunning and more expensive than it is
    • 18-inch wheels turn heads
    • Cabin quality is excellent
    • The 2.0-litre diesel is refined and peppy
    • Ride quality is comfortable

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    BMW 2 Series

    • Rear seat space is average
    • 18-inch wheels wrapped in low profile rubber are not ideal for out pothole rich roads
    • Priced too close to the 3 Series, a larger and more fun sedan

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.
