2010 BMW 3 Series Sedan
Benefits of Driving a 2010 BMW 3 Series Sedan
The 2010 BMW 3-Series continues to be the benchmark against which other entry-level luxury cars are measured, mainly courtesy of its excellent driving experience. Power, braking and handling are perfectly matched to the vehicle's size and intended usage. The way BMW takes care of business inside the cockpit also has a lot to do with the popularity of this breed. The 3-Series makes sure no consumer is left behind by offering four body styles, three engines, and both rear- and xDrive all-wheel drive.
What's new for 2010?
Following a slight facelift to its sedans and wagons in 2009, BMW's excellent 3-Series returns for 2010 with similar exterior refinements for the 3-Series coupes, including revised front and rear bumpers, newer LED taillights and different side mirrors. The power moonroof which had been standard in the entry-level 328 is now a $1,000 option.
- Excellent driving experience
- drivetrain and bodystyle variety
- superior driver's 6-cylinder powerplant
- supercar-performance in M3.
BMW's 3-Series has always been the perfect example of how to combine luxury and sportiness, and this continues with the 2010 versions. The 328i features BMW's exceptional 3.0L engine, which uses double-VANOS technology to steplessly adjust both the intake and exhaust timing on its way to producing 230 horsepower. The 335i models are powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the same 6-cylinder engine. It produces 300 horsepower and an equal amount of torque. Both 6-cylinder powerplants are matched with a superb 6-speed manual transmission, while a 6-speed Steptronic automatic transmission is optional. A 3.0L twin-turbo diesel engine is available in the 335d as a rear-wheel-drive sedan, and it generates an astounding 425 lb-feet of torque while achieving 36 mpg on the highway.
