Let’s start with facts, because we’ll that the BMW 3-Series, especially in guise, might not be the most car you can read about on the web right

But it is one of the most important. Your who have proper jobs, that involve company will want to know the sixth generation BMW 3-Series, and your duty to tell what they need to

If this needs to be communicated via Twitter or somesuch, just them it’s the best car in its Still. Because it is.

If you want to go into much begin with increased (93mm longer, 9mm taller and go on to discuss how the new lower nose has improved both aerodynamics for the most air-cheating models) and safety.

Of course it’s not a leap forward. This is a car that sells in massive — when it goes on in the UK next February it needs to to as wide an audience as possible. We see it alienating many. With the of the pointier front end the exterior is fine. Nothing radical, a good freshen up.

Same too. BMW has been bolder materials, folding them more interesting shapes, yet the are excellent and the quality and design is up to scratch.

Seven engines will be four diesels and three although on the launch just two present, a pair of 2.0-litre one petrol, the other diesel. The is the new engine, a four cylinder that replaces the old naturally straight six of the 330i. No, it’s not as and yes, that does as there’s now one less reason to buy instead of a more sensible It’s got plenty of grunt as in 242bhp and 0-62mph in 5.9secs and in a vaguely interesting way as it homes in on the redline.

Look, it’s an engine for its combination of power and (44.1mpg), but it’s not especially or lovable.

Same goes for the 320d, you should be doing 62.8mpg. You be, you’ll be getting about but you’ll be enjoying sub-120g/km of CO2 and along the way. That’s for 0-62mph in 7.6secs and although the isn’t a miracle of refinement and suppression, it’s plenty enough to bear comparison the best out there.

Special also goes to the eight automatic gearbox worn by car on the launch. I can’t report on the standard-fit six speed manual is but the auto (likely to cost £1,400) is terrific. It has many to choose from, but manages to through them all rapidly and

A good drivetrain isn’t the be all and end all of car though. Granted, it would be a if BMW had ballsed up the ride and handling, but it hasn’t. Quite the opposite. The wheel drive saloon smoothly, precisely and rewardingly.

The might not be the last word in but the weighting is so good and the nose so that it’s never an And the thing’s just so well and agile. For a mainstream car, brilliant.

And we’re not just about the petrol here. the 328i has a bit more about it if really going for gold, but the isn’t far behind and the one we drove marginally better on its smaller wheels. Both, though, are capable motorway devices: stable, smooth and all the rest.

The 3-Series, all seven engines and trim levels, arrives next February, to be followed in the not only by new body styles leads the way, followed by and cabrio), but also a hybrid and, for the first time a 4wd version. Now that really put the cat among the Audi pigeons.

start at £24,880, with the car you want, the 320d Sport, £29,080. Insist on petrol? The starts at £29,060 in SE trim. are good.

No scratch that both are excellent, excellent Now go tell your mates.
