2016 BMW 3 Series Buyer's Guide

The 2016 BMW 3 Series is being billed as an all-new model. BMW’s bread and butter 3 Series four-door sedan and wagon have long served as the benchmark for their category. Further, it can be argued that the 3 Series is the foundation upon which rests the entire BMW brand. For the 2016 model year, the company is introducing a new inline six-cylinder engine, revised transmissions, and evolutionary styling changes for the handsome automobiles; all designed to keep BMW’s competitors languishing where they’ve always been—squarely in the rearview mirror. While BMW’s enduring styling formula of long hood, set back passenger compartment, short rear deck, and short overhangs returns, the interpretation is fresh and instantly identifiable as a new version of the highly coveted BMW model.

What makes it move?

Power for the new 2016 BMW 3 Series comes from three engines. The new offering is a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six with 320 horsepower and 330 ft-lbs of torque. Designated 340i, it replaces the 335i in the BMW 3 Series lineup. An eight speed automatic transmission is offered as standard equipment across the board, while a rev-matching six-speed manual is available as a no-additional-cost option. All-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are available. The 180-horsepower 320i and the 240-horsepower 328i inline four-cylinder turbocharged powerplants migrate unchanged.

Why buy the 2016 BMW 3 Series?

Absolutely unrivalled on the highway, they are also properly engaging on two-lane country roads.

When it comes to crafting fine automobiles, BMW is unsurpassed in its price ranges.
