Interior Legroom & Space

BMW has taken measures to ensure that despite the 3 Series cabin’s modern appearance, it maintains a pleasant and appealing space. The company’s classic analog gauges provide a historical link to BMWs from bygone eras, while the optional thematic equipment lines permit extensive personalization. The material quality is outstanding throughout, and the construction is meticulous.

The ’15 BMW has a five-seat capacity. The front seats are pleasant, while the rear seats are among the most spacious in the luxury subcompact car segment.

Exterior

BMW has transformed the 3-Series from a simplistic, somewhat stark sport sedan to something more subtle and nuanced over multiple decades and generations. The 2015 model has a classy, elegant, and sporty look. The roofline looks longer and a little swoopier compared to previous models. The simplest way to describe the 3-Series’ exterior up close is neat and nicely detailed.

Boot Space

2015 3 Series has a boot space of 480 liters, which is the same as the Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class. It is also more spacious than the Jaguar XE. More importantly, it has a more user-friendly architecture with less suspension component encroachment, making it much easier to slide heavier items in.

Safety Features

The 2015 BMW 3 Series comes with anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and front knee airbags.

Its stability control system incorporates several features intended to improve braking performance, such as periodically wiping the brake rotors dry when the windshield wipers are in use and automatically tightening the brake pads to the rotors when the driver abruptly lifts his or her foot off the gas pedal. Standard BMW Assist emergency communications include automatic crash notification, stolen car recovery, and roadside assistance on-demand.

Fuel Consumption

The BMW 3 Series boasts excellent fuel efficiency. The base model gets 23 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. While the turbodiesel 328d with front-wheel drive has 31 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway.

Acceleration

Petrol- 8,9 seconds between 0-100km/h

Diesel- 10,7 s between 0-100 km/h

Fuel Tank Capacity

Ground Clearance

Reliability

The BMW 3 Series is a fantastic vehicle with superb build quality, meticulous attention to detail, and a long list of high-tech features. However, it is less engaging to drive than it used to be. When driven aggressively, the car remains nimble, solid, and beautifully balanced. It also provides a highly enjoyable and well-balanced overall driving experience.
