BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series is a premium mid-size sedan that's well known for its driving dynamics, luxury appeal and connected technology.

The long-running 3 Series nameplate was first introduced in the late 1970s, and continues to this day in both sedan and wagon form factors. 

The BMW 3 Series is one of the key models in BMW's range, and sits below the larger 5 Series and 7 Series sedan ranges. 

Pricing begins in the mid-$60,000 range and can extend up to $100,000 for better specified variants with more powerful engines. 

The 3 Series line spawned off the 4 Series coupe variant in 2013, and both remain closely related.

It's available with a number of engine choices, with rear- or all-wheel drive and you can even up the performance with special M variants.

The BMW 3 Series is one of the most popular cars in its segment, and competes against the likes of the Lexus IS, Mercedes-Benz C Class, Jaguar XE, Audi A4 and Genesis G70.

Where is the BMW 3 Series manufactured? 

BMW builds the 3 Series in a number of locations dependent on the variant chosen, though the two main factories exist in Germany and South Africa. 

How expensive is the BMW 3 Series to maintain?

BMW 3 Series maintenance is, on balance, more expensive than the mainstream manufacturers. But BMW offers pre-purchase fixed-price servicing packages to give you an idea of what servicing will cost. The BMW 3 Series also comes with a three-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty. 

Is the BMW 3 Series rear-wheel-drive?

The BMW 3 Series is rear-wheel-drive, and in some applications all-wheel drive.
