About BMW 3 Series

It was the BMW 3 Series that first gave credibility to the Ultimate Driving Machine. And not just the long-running advertising slogan. For over 40 years, the 3 Series has been the prototypical sports sedan and the heart and soul of BMW. Ask people to name an entry-level luxury-sports sedan and for most it’s the car that still comes to mind. Now available in many forms, from an all-wheel-drive sedan to a sports wagon, a hatchback, plug-in hybrid and the tire-burning high-performance M3, there's a 3 Series for every buyer. The 2017 3 Series remains a sporty, versatile and efficient luxury car with instant badge appeal, but sophisticated rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Jaguar XE and Audi A4 continue to increase competition.
