What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The 3 Series is a benchmark for driving pleasure, with space and quality on top

Against It's expensive to buy second-hand, but that's about all there is to complain about

Verdict The 3 Series is superb in every way, but it's quite costly to buy

Go for… 318i

Avoid… 330i

BMW 3 Series Saloon
  • 1. Equipment levels are good across the range, but SE's the best to buy
  • 2. This model can get a couple of adults in the back or make a stab at family duties
  • 3. Good overall reliability, but watch for suspension failure
