What You Will Like

The BMW 3 Series is a family of sporty sedans and wagons sized at what would be considered a compact car in the U.S. The 2017 BMW 3 Series sedans, Sports Wagon, and Gran Turismo models are built on a platform that made its debut with the 2012 model. Across its entire lineup, the 3 Series models stand out for being athletic, responsive and fun to drive, as well as more fuel-efficient than most other alternatives. The F30 redesign brought more back-seat space and cargo space to sedans, as well as a more sophisticated and isolated ride. M3 models, meanwhile, continue to be one of the most practical high-performance cars on the market.

Introduction

Launched during the 2011 model year, the BMW 3 Series is getting long in the tooth. The current, sixth-generation models are older than their classic rivals, the Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class. The 3 Series has expanded along the way: The 2017 BMW 3 Series comes in three bodies, six engines, two transmissions, with rear-wheel drive or awd. Performance in some configurations is standout.

The models are 320i, 320i xDrive, 328d, 328d xDrive, 330i, 330i xDrive, 340i, 340i xDrive sedan; also the 330e iPerformance plug-in hybrid sedan, 330i xDrive Gran Turismo, 340i xDrive Gran Turismo, 330i and 328d xDrive wagon, and the almighty M3 that gets its own review.

Engines include the 328d diesel, 2.0-liter turbo four and 3.0-liter turbo six, from high mileage to everyday to scorching performance from the 340i with its 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. All the engines need premium (or diesel) fuel, even the lowly 180-horsepower engine in the 320i. The turbocharged four-cylinder in the 330i gets 248 horsepower, an increase for 2017.

In addition to so many models, the 3 Series comes in different trims, resulting in some startling configurations. It’s difficult to speak generically about the 3 Series, because the distinctive models are many. The Sport Line, optional last year, is now standard on the 328i, 328d, and 340i. There’s also an M Sport package, and for 2017 there’s a Track Handling package with big blue brake calipers.

The Gran Turismo is a five-door hatchback that’s nearly eight inches longer than the sedan, on four inches longer wheelbase, and three inches taller. Forget what we said about old design, Gran Turismo leads the styling way, as part crossover, part fastback, and part wagon.

Lineup

The BMW 320i ($33,450) starts with manual front seats in leatherette upholstery, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, 6.5-inch display, iDrive. Options include wheels, infotainment, heated seats, carbon-fiber rear spoiler, wireless Apple CarPlay, rearview camera, and is powered by the 180-hp 2-liter turbo. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.) 320i xDrive sedan ($35,450) includes awd.

The 330i ($38,750) gets a 248-hp 2-liter and is available with xDrive ($40,750).

The BMW 328d ($40,250) has the 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine. The BMW 330e ($44,100) is a plug-in hybrid.

The 340i ($47,900) features the 320-hp inline-6 turbo.

BMW 330i Gran Turismo ($44,700) and 340i Gran Turismo ($50,550) body styles come standard with xDrive.

Walkaround

The classic and elegant sedan was recently tweaked with bigger headlamps and air intakes, and a distinctive back end with restyled bumpers. It still looks sharp and expressive, compared to the aero wedge shape of others. We don’t need no stinkin’ aero, says BMW.

The striking Gran Turismo pushes design in a new direction, a big hatchback fastback coupe. A smooth Frankenstein that’s part crossover, part coupe and part wagon. The rising beltline visually lowers the hood.

Interior

The Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class will blitz you with their high-tech capabilities that make the BMW 3 Series feel outdated, in other words feel its age. The cabin materials may be rich and luxurious or muddled and fussy, or even cheap, depending on trim level. The flat dashboard’s horizontal line is broken only by a standing screen that may be modern but needs new materials.

Although the 3 has never been bigger, it’s still a compact car. The good front seats have decent bolstering and nice leg support.

The back seat squeezes adults, but there’s good headroom. There’s good cargo room, with a big trunk of 15.8 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

Bravo to BMW for hanging onto the six-speed gearbox, remaining true to its drivers. The 320i, 330i, and 340i models all have one, especially with rear-wheel drive. However the eight-speed automatic is way good; it shifts quick, precise, right on time, and never is at a loss for gears. We like its logic, because it’s smart enough to agree with ours. Sport programs can make it nearly as much fun as a manual.

Speaking generically, every model of 3 Series handles sharply and stays flat. The steering is weighted nicely, pushing back when the car begins to lose grip.

The biggest new thing for 2017 is the increase in horsepower for the BMW 330i: from 240 to 248 hp. 0-60 in 5.5 seconds, says BMW. And it sounds better than before.

The 340i with its 3.0-liter turbo six is super quick and very talented. The massive torque is right there for you. Cool that it’s still the classic inline six, not a V6.

Mercedes has been making a traditional diesel for many years, but to find one nowadays is fairly rare. The 328d makes 180 horsepower and a ton of smooth torque, with the standard eight-speed automatic. It might be most popular as a wagon. The brown one is classic. There won’t be a lot of them, so hurry.

The base 320i is a four-cylinder turbo making 180 horsepower. It accelerates from zero to sixty in 7.1 seconds. It feels relatively weak.

The 330e iPerformance plug-in hybrid makes 248 combined horsepower from a 7.6-kwh hour lithium-ion battery and turbo four engine.

The ride in any 3 Series is smooth. The suspensions have been softened to compensate for hard run-flat tires, which edge up fuel mileage as well. It harshness still sometimes comes through the ride, blame the tires.

The electric power steering lacks the feedback through the steering wheel hydraulic power steering used to provide.

The optional variable sport steering system mechanically alter the steering ratio depending on the immediate task, making parking easier and high-speed cornering tighter.

Driving Dynamics Control, using a switch on the console, has Eco Pro, Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus modes. Sport mode sharpens the steering and transmission, while Sport Plus loosens up the stability control.

If you really want to go down the handling trail, the M Sport package lowers the chassis by 0.4 inches, stiffens the springs and shocks, fattens the anti-roll bars, and bolts on 18- or 19-inch alloys with fat tires. The new Track Handling package adds the variable sport steering, adaptive suspension, and bigger brakes with blue calipers.

Summary

The BMW 3 Series offers a wide range of models sporting a range of performance, all with crisp handling. The sedan is dated, the Gran Turismo offers distinctive styling, cargo convenience. An all-new 3 Series is on the horizon and is expected to be introduced soon.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
