Review

A brilliant performance saloon that’s far more capable (if not necessarily more fun) than its main rival, the V8-powered Mercedes C63 AMG

get the best price

The M3 is reasonably well equipped on the safety and luxury front, although you might be surprised to learn you have to pay extra for keyless entry and a powered tailgate.

The M3's 3.0-litre straight-six engine engine packs a big punch – 503bhp to be exact. That's enough for claimed 0-62mph time of 3.9 seconds.
