Twenty-two years. That’s how long the BMW 3-series has made Car and Driver’s 2014 10Best Cars list. That’s a long time. In fact, that’s more consecutive years than any other vehicle.
So what makes the 3-series the best time and again?
“From the start, the 1977 BMW E21 3er and its successors have been built the way common-sense enthusiasts would build their cars. The axle loads are nearly equal on a trim and tidy rear-drive platform with exactly enough room to serve practical needs. No inches or pounds are wasted, and nothing but an inline engine will do,” Car and Driver contributors stated in their review.
They acknowledged the 3-series has experienced such success because BMW stuck to its winning formula.
While the 3-series maintains its proven build, the 2014 models incorporate the latest in technology. Several models – from the sedan to the ActiveHybrid3 – compose the series, each offering a host of standard features and available add-ons.
Twenty-two years later, there’s no doubt the sporty BMW 3-series is still a fun-to-drive model that performs as luxuriously as it looks. Check out the BMW 3-series in our BMW of Bowling Green inventory today.
