Introduction

What Car? says...

The BMW M3 is a seriously quick and capable four-door saloon. It competes with the Mercedes-AMG C63 and Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, although the latter has the most power of the three.

BMW's mid-sized super-saloon is powered by a twin-turbocharged, straight-six engine driving the rear wheels through a six-speed manual or optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The BMW M3 is one of the most hardcore high-performance saloons on the market, but some drivers find it too aggressive. With that in mind, then, is it the best of its breed? Read on to find out. And, whichever performance car you settle on, make sure to check out our New Car Buying service for huge savings on hundreds of new cars.
