Verdict

BMW 3 Series is a well-suited car as it contains a variety of engines and variants for every budget. However, the diesel version is frighteningly economical. The comfort level is firm, but chassis is so sharp that it strictly responds to the slightest of inputs delivered by steering, and thus it can be said that if the driver is having fun, rear passenger usually don't. As far as design is concerned, 3 Series is counted among the best-looking cars in its segment. In terms of quality, it has each and everything a Rs. 35 lakh car should have. If handling is concerned, 3 Series can be termed as sportscar, which has a boot and 4 doors.

Competition

  1. Appealing exteriors
  2. Performance oriented engine
  3. Spacious interiors
  4. Fuel economy is good

Cons

  1. Interior’s design can be enhanced
  2. Head space is not impressive at rear
