  • Strong and smooth in-line six-cylinder engines
  • Superb balance of handling and ride quality without compromise
  • Always the benchmark by which other cars are compared
  • Active and passive safety features
  • Best value in its class
  • Interior design is its weakest point
  • Cost of options get expensive quickly
  • Complicated iDrive system
Ruling: The BMW 3 Series emphasizes performance and continues to lead the pack with intuitive handling, powerful motors , and a functional interior that is comfortable for short and long trips.

Since debuting in the year 1975, more than 12 million customers worldwide have purchased a BMW 3 Series. BMW's goal for the 3 Series was to develop a compact and elegant body design, modern and efficient engines, a classic rear-wheel drive concept and a sporty suspension setup. The result was a maximum degree of driving dynamics and agility. In addition, BMW designed the high-performance sports sedan BMW M3.

CarReview's opinion of the 2008 BMW 335i | 2010 BMW 335d

  • Amazing engine with breathtaking acceleration
  • Incredible handling
  • Surprising amount of interior space
  • Poor gas mileage (averaged 16.6 mpg)
  • Surprising cost cutting and sub-par quality for a $46,000 car
  • Uncomfortable seats

Verdict: If you love to drive aggressively, the 3 Series will reward you with an incredible engine and fantastic handling that gets better the harder you push it. What other car seats 4, rips 0-60 in around 5 seconds, and handles as if on rails for less than $50,000? Given that criteria, it is hard to beat. And if you like the concept of a “sleeper” that can out –run 90% of the cars out there, it’s very appealing.
