BMW 3 Series
Take the Texas BMW 3-Series for a test-drive and you will know why many BMW drivers keep choosing the 3-Series. The BMW 3 Series is the company’s top seller in the United States and a favorite in the TX marketplace for good reason: It’s a classy entry-level luxury car endowed with world-class fit and finish, spirited performance and an exquisite ride-and-handling balance unmatched by most vehicles at any price. That’s true no matter which model or year you choose, as generation after generation of 3 Series has offered the same benefits despite constant evolution.

As for the new 3 Series, it’s slightly larger and faster than its predecessor, yet lighter and more fuel-efficient. It also boasts a bolder look inside and out, revised suspension and steering, and more interior space. Although some may argue that the car’s sporting edge has been blunted a bit, we still find the 3 Series sedan and wagon exceptionally rewarding to drive. If you’re looking for the current coupe and convertible, note that they’re now known as the 4 Series and are reviewed separately.
Today’s Irving BMW 3 Series is offered as either a sedan or a wagon. It’s broken down into 320i, 328i, 328d, 335i and ActiveHybrid 3 models. The 320i and 328i sedans and 328i wagon get a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine that produces either 180 horsepower (320i) or 240 hp (328i). The 328d sedan and wagon are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel-powered four-cylinder that also makes 180 hp but considerably more torque; highway fuel economy is impressively in the low 40s. The sedan-only 335i gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 with 300 hp. The ActiveHybrid 3 sedan pairs the 335i’s engine with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack, resulting in a healthy 335 hp; however, fuel economy is about the same as in the 328i.
