The 3 Series Saloon is the heart of the BMW brand, responsible for  one-fifth of the company’s global sales. The latest,  sixth-generation of 3 Series builds on the previous model’s  position as the ultimate drivers’ car in its sector. But it is  also the most logical business proposition, thanks to new powertrains  and additional EfficientDynamics fuel-saving, emissions-reducing  technologies.

The new BMW 3 Series Saloon is a car of contradictions: larger and  more spacious than the model it replaces, but lighter; quicker in many  cases, but more fuel-efficient; and more nimble and agile while even  safer. There have been big steps forward in style, quality, comfort  and specification for only a minimal price increase.
