What Car? says...
The BMW 3 Series; it has always done the business as the car for business people: a well-built, sporty, rear-wheel-drive saloon. And that basic concept remains very much at the heart of this seventh-generation model.
However, it is a thoroughly modern proposition, too. These days, 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 even a plug-in hybrid version, which has the potential to slice chunks of your company car tax bill and power itself on pure battery power for around 30 miles.
