The BMW 3 Series leads the charge in the premium executive class. Its primary appeal is in the way it drives, but its engines, standard equipment list and infotainment system are first rate as well. The firm ride on M Sport models is just about the only thing we can grumble about in this near-flawless executive car.get the best price
The trimSee full equipment
Sport trim is our favourite, because as well as coming with sportier bumpers and larger 18in alloy wheels over everything you get on entry-level SE, you also get the sumptuousness of leather seats that are heated in the front.

The entry-level diesel, the 148bhp 318d, has good mid-range flexibility so it never feels slow, but if your budget can cover it, we recommend going for our favourite 320d that adds performance without any penalties for either CO2 emissions or fuel consumption.
