Reviews the 2013 BMW 3 Series


It's simply the best, better than all the rest — better than any car, any car put to the test. That's the sentiment reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder expressed toward the BMW 328i after its commanding victory in our $46,000 Sport-Sedan Challenge. The 328i's balance of performance and practicality is its greatest asset, boasting excellent acceleration, handling and braking with pack-leading fuel economy and competitive interior comfort. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 6.6-second zero-to-60 time prove quickness and efficiency can coexist. An abrupt engine start/stop feature tops Wiesenfelder's short list of criticisms.

2013 BMW 3 Series Review



What? No complaining about all the buttons on the center console?


After the CUE system in the ATS, how could he?


German interiors are always logical- unless they are German interiors appearing in an American branded car like a Buick. Then they are tough to understand.


The 3 series has an inflated price that defies logic. They went from six cylinders, the absolute minimum for a true luxury vehicle, to a four cylinder, yet raised the price. The optional six costs a ton more. 60k for a civic sized BMW is beyond ridiculous.


the auto media does not agree. When it comes to BMW prices excuses are always available. The most popular: "skip some of the unnecessary options on our test car and it comes down to a more reasonable price".


Does it come with a spare tire, or at least a place to put one?

Black Ace

how will it compare with the up coming C-class or the A4 surely it wil make a better compare since all models will be new

My brother has the new 3 and it's a great driving car however if I was spending my money I'd get S60 or TL. Both can be had for $7-9k less.
