Editor's Overview

With four decades of history, the BMW 3 Series is cemented among aspirational buyers. This small, sporty luxury car now boasts more variety than ever, including the Gran Turismo hatchback, tarmac-eating M3 and a new plug-in hybrid. The latest 3 Series retains its lively manners and enviable appeal, but rivals are right on its tail or ahead of its nose.
