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: M Sport

Brings an even more aggressive look, although you’re not getting a whole lot more than added style for your money with 18in wheels and digital instruments being the main equipment upgrades. The ride is firm on standard M Sport suspension, so think about deselecting this (it’s a no-cost option) or adding optional adaptive M Sport suspension, which should make things smoother.

Engine: 320d

This is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder boasting 187bhp, and it’s just the ticket if you’re looking to balance economy with performance. You get plenty of poke from low to mid-range revs, so there’s no need to hoof it constantly to gain speed, making it relaxing to drive. When you do extend it to full chat it’s as pacey as a Mercedes C 220 d or Audi A4 40 TDI, but isn’t as quiet as the Audi.
