BMW 3 Series Review And Trims

It’s remarkable to think that the BMW 3 Series has been available for almost fifty years and that seven generations on, the time has done little to decrease its appeal…

In fact, we think the latest version is one of the best of its class that you can buy. The 3 Series is much sleeker than the swathes of SUVs that currently inundate the novel car market, while also offering similar interior space and practical features. In addition, while the latest Mercedes C-Class has one of the most hi-tech cabins you can buy, the BMW exceeds the Merc in terms of driving dynamics and material quality.

You can get the current BMW 3 Series in four distinct trim levels; SE Pro, Sport Pro, M Sport, M Sport Pro Edition, and in addition there are the sportier ‘M’-badged models. We can’t deny that the most popular model in the range, the M Sport trim attracts thanks to its sportier styling and a wide choice of engines.

On the fuel side, the range starts off with the 154bhp 318i, and averages around 44.1mpg. You can also step up to the more-powerful 320i and 330i, they produce 181bhp and 254bhp respectively. These models offer more or less the same fuel economy and can be specified with BMW’s slick xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

The entry-level 148bhp 318d diesel is the only model offered with a gearbox that’s and can average a very respectable 65.7mpg. Other diesel options include the 187bhp 320d and 282bhp 330d; like all of the petrol models, they are fitted with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. 

You can also be looking for a middle ground between petrol and diesel and can opt for the plug-in hybrid 330e. This features a 2.0-liter petrol engine to an electric motor, which both produce 249bhp. When the car is in Sport mode, the 330e’s electric motor produces an extra 41bhp in short bursts, allowing for 0-62mph in less than 6 seconds. The 330e is not all about velocity, however, as it features a pure-electric range of 37 miles and can return up to 217.3mpg – if you recharge the battery on a regular basis.

Standard specs are high on all M Sport models, but the majority will be attracted by its BMW M3-inspired looks because of its M Sport body kit and standard 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Inside there is an interior in leather with heated sports seats, as well as a reversing camera and three-zone climate control.

If this just isn’t pretty sporty enough, the M Sport Pro Edition trim comes with an adaptive suspension and plenty of gloss black detailing including a set of model-specific 19-inch wheels, a dark kidney grille, and black wing mirror caps. M Sport Pro Edition only comes with diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains and may be specified in one of three metallic paints.

The BMW 3 Series is one of the favorite executive cars – and the M Sport trim is perhaps its most convincing trim. The sportier body kit is fitting for the 3 Series’ superb driving dynamics and the figure-hugging sports seats go a long way in rendering the interior feel even more premium. We hope that this article was helpful to you.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
