2015 BMW 3 Series Buyer's Guide

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “benchmark” as something one can use to judge the quality or level of other similar things. When it comes to entry-level small luxury cars with sporting overtones, the word is defined as the BMW 3 Series. Going all the way back to the days of its predecessor, the BMW 2002 and its antecedents, BMW’s lithe sport sedan has been universally acclaimed for its combination of strong build quality, outstanding driving characteristics, and the ability to seat four people while doing so. Nothing less than a sports car with a back seat, BMW raised the expectations of all other sporty cars with its outstanding execution of this model. If you’re looking for a car you’ll never tire of driving, look no farther.

What makes it move?

The BMW’s 3 Series Active Hybrid features an eight-speed automatic transmission. The rear-drive powertrain is motivated by an electric motor teamed with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine. Total system output is 335 horsepower and 330 ft-lbs of torque. Here, it should be noted BMW approaches the hybrid powertrain a bit differently from other manufactures. BMW uses hybrid technology to boost performance, while maintaining reasonable fuel economy. Thus, the 3 Series Active Hybrid produces more power than the inline six, while achieving reasonable fuel economy.

Why buy the 2015 BMW 3 Series?

The primary reason to buy a BMW 3 Series Active Hybrid is the sheer unalloyed joy of feeling one with your automobile. First of all, BMW automobiles are the smoothest cars on the road. They do everything with a grace and fluidity you’ll be hard pressed to find in any other product—even those renowned for smoothness. Further, the 3 Series cars endow their drivers with quick acceleration, determined roadholding, a supple ride, reasonable fuel economy, and more than a heaping helping of style. If you’re into the 3 Series but you’re still looking for a more powerful and fuel-efficient luxury sedan than BMW’s 335i, the 3 Series Active Hybrid is the one. If you really love driving, nothing else in this category solidly compares.
