  • tickImpressive quality
  • tickReally sharp to drive
  • tickLots of technology

BMW 3 Series Saloon (2018 - )

Arguably a benchmark for the sector, the BMW 3 Series has maintained its reputation for sporty handling and fine dynamics while also delivering competitive CO2 and fuel consumption figures. With the option of powerful petrols, commendably refined and frugal diesels and a full plug-in hybrid there are engines to suit every need and a huge amount of technology to support your driving, even if the best of it remains on the options list or confined to fancier trim levels.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

While the outright purchase costs of the 3 Series are high when compared with similarly sized cars from mainstream brands, they’re on a par with direct rivals from the likes of Audi, Mercedes and Jaguar. So are the car’s all-important resale values, which means your investment will be just as well protected come resale time. Or, if you buy on finance, these robust residuals will help keep monthly payments a bit lower.
