Cars.com Reviews the 2013 BMW 3 Series

2013BMW328i

It's simply the best, better than all the rest — better than any car, any car put to the test. That's the sentiment Cars.com 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.

WTF

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.
