2017 BMW 3 Series Review

Overview
From its distinctive lines to its signature grille the BMW 3 Series shows you why it’s the world’s first and most popular sport sedan. At the heart of every 3 Series is a selection of powerfully capable engines. Add nearly perfect weight distribution and suspension celebrated for road hugging ability and you’ve got a high-performance driving machine. Choose from 3 models: Sedan Sports Wagon and Gran Turismo. You’ll have all-weather driving confidence with available xDrive BMW’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System. It works in tandem with Dynamic Stability Control to improve traction and deliver responsive handling. Inside you’ll find impressive innovations like the available Head-Up Display that helps you keep your eyes on the road while iDrive lets you control the functions you care most about. Add the available Technology Package to get BMW Navigation with Advanced Real Time Traffic. You'll also enjoy remote services that let you control your BMW from your smartphone. There are a number of exterior colors and interior finishes that allow you to uniquely express yourself through your 3 Series car. The icon lives on in your new BMW 3 Series.
Technology
Make your BMW 3 Series even more sophisticated with the BMW Luxury Package. Choose from rich interior leathers beautifully grained wood trims and exclusive alloy wheels. Get alternate routes and steer clear of congested traffic and with available Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information. You’ll always arrive on time. Your 3 Series can even tell you when it’s sick. BMW TeleService transmits your vehicle's maintenance status directly to your BMW center so they can have the parts you need ready when you get there.
Safety
Your BMW 3 Series comes with a full complement of airbags traction control and skid-preventing electronic stability-control systems. For added peace of mind the active safety features of the Driver Assistance Plus Package help make you aware of pedestrians and other vehicles around you. Even more driving confidence comes courtesy of xDrive BMW’s intelligent All-Wheel Drive System. It improves traction in less than optimal conditions and delivers responsive handling.
Performance
Five powerful powerplants are available to get your BMW 3 Series rolling. From the highly efficient yet still powerful 180-horsepower TwinPower Turbo engine in the 320i to the 2-liter TwinPower Turbo Diesel in the 328d. Each makes your 3 Series a force to reckon with. An enhanced 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters comes standard giving you complete control. Traditionalists will love the 340i’s available 6-speed manual transmission—it even has a rev-matching feature that automatically blips the throttle for smoother downshifts.
