What Car? says...
The BMW 3 Series has always done the business for business people – it's a well-built, sporty, rear-wheel-drive executive car. That basic concept remains very much at the heart of this seventh-generation model.
The 3 Series saloon is a thoroughly modern proposition, too. You have the option of four-wheel drive – xDrive in BMW speak – along with a range of strong yet efficient petrol and diesel engines to suit most tastes and budgets. There's also a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version, which should slice chunks off your company car tax bill and can officially run on electric power for up to 37 miles.
We’d recommend going for the M Sport trim with the M Sport Pro pack in order to get the best ride. Company car drivers should opt for the 330e plug-in hybrid for the lowest company car tax bills, whereas private buyers ought to go for the 320d because it’s efficient and drives really well.
