Benefits of Driving a 2014 BMW 3 Series Sedan

The BMW 3-Series is a family of sporty sedans and wagons sized at what would be considered a compact car in the U.S. 2014 BMW 3-Series Sedans and Sports Wagon models are built on a new-generation platform that made its debut with the 2012-model sedan--and is slightly longer, lower, and wider. Across its entire lineup, the 3-Series models stand out for being athletic, responsive and fun to drive--as well as more fuel-efficient than most other alternatives. The F30 redesign brought more back-seat space and cargo space to sedans, as well as a more sophisticated, isolated ride. M3 models, meanwhile, continue to be one of the most practical high-performance cars on the market.

What's new for 2014?

The biggest change for the 2014 3-Series, is the lack of coupe and convertible models. These have now been redubbed as the 4-series, keeping things more in line with the rest of BMW's naming scheme. Wagons have been updated to match the current generation of sedans and a new base engine is available in the 320i.

Model Strengths

  • A wide variety of options
  • athletic driving feel
  • fuel efficiency
  • high-tech options
  • long list of appearance packages and trims
  • compact size and maneuverability
  • practicality and comfort

Model Review

The 3-Series is offered in Sedan or Sports Wagon body styles. Sedans are offered in 320i, 328i and 335i variants. The 320i makes 180-horspower and the 328i makes 240-horsepower, both employing a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The 335i version offers a 300-hp, 3.0L turbo six. All three engines employ twin-scroll turbocharging for quick responsiveness as well as strong torque output just above idle--making them feel like much larger engines. New-generation 8-speed automatic transmissions help the cars achieve excellent mileage, too--up to 33 mpg on the highway with the 335i Sedan or up to 34 mpg with the 328i Sedan.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
