Review

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 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.

Trim: SE

SE is the entry-level trim and comes with pretty much all that you might expect and need, including 17in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control (including a separate controller for the rear passengers), cruise control, heated front seats, power folding door mirrors and automatic lights and wipers. On top of that you get a cracking infotainment system with sat-nav and Apple CarPlay.

Engine: 318d

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.
