The new hybrid version of the 330i is the 330e: it matches a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine with a lithium-ion powered electric motor to deliver a combined output of 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, for a 0-60 mpg of 5.9 seconds. Not bad for a hybrid. EPA-rated fuel efficiency is an estimated 71 mpg-e.

2017 BMW 340i

The BMW 340i is an amped-up version of the 330i and delivers on its performance expectations. The engine is a 3.0-lter turbocharged V6 that's all-aluminum and lightweight and pumps out 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. It uses BMW's High Precision Injection and Double-VANOS to push the 340i from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds in the all-wheel drive xDrive model. It also happens to come standard with the 16-speaker Harman Kardon high-end audio system.

Today the BMW 3 Series comes in a range of engines and styles, from the "base" 320i (can any BMW model ever be considered "base?") to the 330i and higher-octane 340i to the fuel-sipping 330e. While the 3 Series is normally found in its understated sedan form, it's also available as a sports wagon or Gran Turismo hatchback. The coupe and cabriolet versions are now broken out separately as the BMW 4 Series.

This is arguably the most handsome sports sedan design on the market, and BMW's engineers are continually revising and sculpting the exterior to stay ahead of the curve. Standard interior features in the 3 Series are plentiful, including BMW's high-grade SensaTec faux-leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, a premium nine-speaker audio system paired and BMW's iDrive infotainment system that comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen display.

Options are many, including features like a Surround View camera for stress-free parking, lane-changing and backing up, a foot-wave-activated hand-free trunk lid and performance sport seats with active bolstering to keep you firmly planted if you happen to be negotiating curves at higher-than-normal speeds.

Finally, the BMW 3 Series also stands out for its safety features, which include eight airbags located throughout the cabin, active head restraints to protect against whiplash injuries, impact sensors that activate in the event of an accident and turn on hazard light, turn off electrical systems and automatically unlock doors. Every new BMW comes with four-years or 50,000 miles of free scheduled maintenance and four years of unlimited roadside assistance.
