The 2015 BMW 3 Series appeals to a wide variety of car enthusiasts offering some of the best interior finishes as well as having the reputation for providing a fun overall sporty and driving experience.
There are three petrol engines on offer - two four-cylinders and a six-cylinder, all of which are turbo-charged. The recent addition is the 328d diesel-powered four-cylinder model provides an impressive 6.4 litres/100 kms in the sedan combines travelling city/highway. Far from being slow, the car is capable of doing 0-100kmh in just over 7 seconds. The 328i petrol version is still a favourite due to its mixture of value for money, power, and fuel economy.
