The BMW 3 Series Delivers Luxury in a Sport Sedan

The BMW 3 Series is among the most affordable in the BMW lineup, providing you with the luxury features you love and expect from the automaker without breaking your budget. With the ability to choose from a sedan, Sports Wagon, or Gran Turismo body style, there is a 3 Series vehicle for everyone, regardless of your preferences in terms of shape. This way, you can enjoy a practical sedan, a versatile wagon, or a coupe-like model with sleek lines and a hatchback. The 3 Series is also highly customizable thanks to the choice of five engines, two transmissions, and rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, depending on the body style you choose.

Dynamic engineering makes the BMW 3 Series extremely eye-catching no matter where you go and the almost perfect 50/50 distribution of weight ensures excellent handling at all times. The 3 Series models always include the latest technology, such as a Head-Up Display and advanced safety features, preventing the need to worry about entertainment, connectivity, or anything else. If you looking for plenty of engine choices, sharp handling, upscale features, and room to stretch, the BMW 3 series is the right choice for you.

What's New on the 2017 BMW 3 Series

If you compare the 2017 BMW 3 Series to the previous model year, you will notice a reasonable number of changes depending on the model you choose. The good news is that the 320i models cost the same as they did last year and 340i models only increased slightly considering all their updates. The former 328i models are now the 330i, sporting a new 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that has 248 horsepower. The models that used to be known as the 335i Gran Turismo are now the 340i Gran Turismo with a new, turbocharged 6-cylinder engine. This new engine has 320 horsepower and is the one that was in the 2016 340i sedan, replacing the 300-horsepower turbocharged model in the 335i Gran Turismo.

Those who are more interested in technological updates will be glad to know that every single 2017 3 Series model is available with Wi-Fi hot spot capabilities and wireless phone charging while only some offered this before. Those who choose the 340i models will notice that the M Sport Package now comes standard, enhancing the sedans and wagons.

Get to Know the History of the BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series actually dates back to 1977 in the U.S. and has always been a top model in the segment of small sport sedans. This original 3 Series model was the E21 and became popular due to rising oil prices. The U.S. 3 Series was only offered as a 320i and it was a bit larger than the 2002 model it replaced. It was only offered as a two-door model and had a forward-leaning grille, low beltline, and clipped rear side windows like the predecessor. It stood out, however, with an 110-horsepower 2.0-liter engine and MacPherson strut suspension. 

The 1984 3 Series arrived in 1984, starting a new generation with enhanced aerodynamics and adjusted styling. The headlights became flush with the vehicle's grille and the wheelbase grew just 0.3 inches. A four-door arrived in 1985 and a new generation arrived in 1992. By 2006, the fifth generation had arrived with run-flat tires, push-button ignition, and iDrive controlled navigation. The M3 model with extra power arrived in 2007, and changes continued until BMW created the current 3 Series models.
