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 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.

Trim: Sport

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.

Engine: 320i xDrive

If petrol power is your cup of fossil fuel, the 184hp 2.0-litre 320i is a great place to start. It's perky enough for most situations, including overtaking on country roads, and its rev-happy nature sits well with the 3 Series' sporty character.
