2020 BMW 3 Series Review

Overview
From its athletic body to its throaty growl to its signature grille you can see—and hear—how the BMW 3 Series got to be the benchmark for sports sedans. Choose from four models starting with the 330i Sedan and moving through the M340i xDrive Sedan. At the heart of every 3 Series is a TwinPower Turbo engine. Add almost-perfect 50:50 weight distribution and road-hugging suspension and you’ve got the original ultimate high-performance driving machine. All-weather driving confidence comes with xDrive BMW’s available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System. It works with BMW’s Dynamic Stability Control to improve traction and deliver responsive handling. Inside you’ll find comfort and technology like the available Head-Up Display that helps you keep your eyes on the road and the intuitive iDrive infotainment system that lets you make calls play music get directions and more. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a 3 Series that’s all yours. The BMW 3 Series. Drive an icon.
Technology
The iconic BMW 3 Series is ready to connect you. Use your hands or voice to make calls play music get directions and more with BMW’s intuitive iDrive infotainment system. Available BMW Navigation lets you get alternate routes and steer clear of congested traffic with Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information. You’ll always arrive on time. And the available BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is always ready to help. Just say “Hey BMW take me home ” or “I’m cold.” Or even “Is the oil level OK?” or “Where’s the closest gas station?” The BMW 3 Series. It’s iconically connected.
Safety
Your BMW 3 Series comes with a full complement of airbags traction control and skid-preventing electronic stability-control systems. Active Guard brings Frontal Collision Warning Lane Departure Warning and Automatic City Collision Mitigation. The available Driving Assistance Package adds the Active Driving Assistant Pro with Traffic Jam Assist Steering and Lane Control Assistant and more. Add Active Blind Spot Detection for even more safety. You’ll get a gentle reminder through the steering wheel if you start to drift out of your lane. The BMW 3 Series. Iconically safe.
Performance
The BMW 3 Series isn’t just the benchmark for its class. It’s the benchmark for driving in general. A TwinPower Turbo engine is the 3 Series’ heart. Up to 255 horsepower from a turbocharged inline four gets the 330i sedan from zero to sixty in 5.6 seconds. And the M340i comes with classic BMW inline-six turbocharged power. That’s good for zero-to-sixty in 4.1 seconds1 with available xDrive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. An agile chassis is the 3 Series’ backbone. Its advanced suspension was tuned to perfection on the grueling Nurburgring. The BMW 3 Series. This is as good as it gets.
