Renew Your Love of Driving in a 2017 BMW 3 Series from The Automaster BMW

In 1975, BMW launched the 3 Series and essentially invented the compact luxury car segment. Now, a little more than forty years later, the 3 Series is still the best-selling model in an increasingly crowded class, leading the way thanks to its refined styling, wealth of features, and fun-to-drive nature.

The 2017 model year sees several changes to the 3 Series with the most prominent change being the renaming of the 328i. The model received a small power boost to accompany the new 330i designation. The iDrive infotainment system also received an upgrade and the automaker added Apple CarPlay smartphone integration as a standalone option.

The BMW 3 Series comes flush all the standard and available features one would expect from a compact luxury sedan, including premium upholstery; automatic climate control; power-folding, heated, and auto-dimming mirrors; panoramic sunroof; premium audio; advanced safety features; and much more. However, perhaps the most notable aspect of the three series is that is available in five different trim levels--320i, 328d, 330i, 330e, and 340i--each being powered by a different engine:

  • 320i: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder - 180 horsepower, 200 pound-feet of torque
  • 330i: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder - 248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque
  • 328d: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel - 180 horsepower, 280 pound-feet of torque
  • 330e: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine + electric motor - Total system output of 248 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque
  • 340i: turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder - 320 horsepower, 330 pound-feet of torque

Regardless of the model you pick, we can promise you one thing: you will love driving it.
