2017 BMW 3 Series

The 2017 BMW 3 Series should be near the top of the list for shoppers wanting a compact luxury sport sedan. Whether enjoying its blend of features and refinement or putting its smooth optional engine to the test, you’ll be impressed. It runs in a crowded class, but the 3 Series is one of the best.

BMW practically invented the compact luxury car decades ago, and today’s 3 Series advances that heritage. It’s the best-selling car in its class, and for good reason. Few can match its artful blend of performance and refinement, though that doesn’t stop them from trying. In either sedan or wagon style, the 3 Series makes few compromises. It’s simultaneously comfortable and sporty, compact without being confining, and its engines are fuel-efficient and powerful. It’s a truly fantastic all-rounder with no significant flaws.

BMW has again revised its 3 Series nomenclature. Last year the 340i replaced the 335i and this year the 330i replaces the 328i. Other changes include revised exterior trim, revised interior color options, and the Sport and Luxury lines restructured into packages. The optional navigation system is updated to iDrive 5.0, while wireless charging and a Wi-Fi Hotspot are now available. Although the M Sport Package is now standard on the 340i, the Sport Package and Luxury Package are available at no extra charge.

After BMW updated the 3 Series sedan and wagon, it was just a matter of time before the same upgrades were features on the Gran Turismo version of the series. The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo was only introduced recently in 2013 as a smaller version of the 5 Series Gran Turismo.

2017 BMW 3 Series Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2017 BMW 3 Series. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

The 2017 BMW 3 Series sedan, Sports Wagon, and Gran Turismo models have a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). Although the 2017 model hasn’t been tested by the IIHS, the 2016 BMW 3 Series earned a Good rating in the moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength tests and a Good rating for its head restraints and seats. A Marginal rating in the small overlap front test prevented it from earning a Top Safety Pick award. The BMW 3 Series earned an Advanced rating for its optional Collision Warning with City Braking function. The system reduced vehicle speed by 7 mph in the low-speed 12-mph autobrake test and by 6 mph in the high-speed 25-mph autobrake test.

On the exterior, the 3 Series Gran Turismo adopts many styling cues from the 3-Series sedan and wagon. However, unlike the sedan and wagon, the GT rides on the extended wheelbase adopted from the China-exclusive sedan. The exterior of the new model has been refined for 2017. It now features a matte-chrome exterior trim.

The 2017 BMW 3 Series range starts out with the basic 320i sedan ($34,145), which comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, push-button start, auto stop/start (a fuel-saving feature that tends to make its presence felt but can be disabled), Driving Dynamics Control (offering three settings for throttle sensitivity and steering effort), manually adjustable front seats, leatherette upholstery, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, iPod/USB connectivity and the iDrive infotainment system with a 6.5-in screen.

2017 BMW 3 Series Review

2017 BMW 3 Series Engine

The Gran Turismo features the same lineup of engines like the standard 3 Series models. The model comes with a number of both petrol and diesel engines. In the U.S.A., only two drive-trains will be offered.  They include the 330i which replaces the 328i and 340i which replaces the 335i. The 330i is powered by a turbocharged 2.0 L, 4-cylinder engine which is capable of 252 hp while the 340i is equipped with a 3.0 L turbo 6-cylinder mill which pumps out 326 hp.

In a 2017 First Test, we said that the new 248-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four paired to the eight-speed automatic offers smooth power delivery and strong acceleration for the class. However, despite the car having good handling, it’s not as lively as previous 3 Series have been. In a 2017 premium compact sedan comparison test, the car was criticized for lacking personality and for its aging interior filled with average material quality.

A new turbocharged four-cylinder a 2.0-liter making 248 horsepower replaces an engine of the same size with 240 hp. The models that use it now are designated 330i instead of 328i, including a rear-drive sedan and xDrive (all-wheel drive) sedan and wagon, as well as the 330i xDrive Gran Turismo hatchback.

The engine on the base 318d produces 150 hp and 190 horses on the 320d trim. Moving up, the same engine is tweaked to produce 224 horses on the 325d. On the 330d, the engine produces 258 hp while on the top-of the range 335d, the engine produces 313 horses.

The base engine in the 2017 BMW 320i is a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 making 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Depending on transmission and drive type, the 320i is EPA-rated 23/34-35 mpg city/highway. The mid-range turbocharged 2.0-liter in the 330i makes 248 hp and 258 lb-ft and is EPA-rated 21-23/32/34 mpg depending on configuration. Power for the BMW 340i comes from a turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 making 320 hp and 330 lb-ft. EPA fuel economy for the rear-drive 2017 BMW 340i with the eight-speed automatic is 21/32 mpg. EPA numbers aren’t yet available for all 2017 340i models, but the manual-equipped 2016 340i was rated 20/30 mpg in rear-drive trim and 20/29 mpg with all-wheel drive. An all-wheel-drive 2016 340i equipped with the automatic achieves 22/33 mpg, according to EPA’s estimates.

The BMW 330e plug-in hybrid sedan combines a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine, making 180 hp and 215 lb-ft, with an 87-hp electric motor and eight-speed automatic. Total system output is rated 248 hp and 310 lb-ft. The 2016 BMW 330e is EPA-rated 72 mpge with its 14 miles of pure electric range and 31/31 mpg in hybrid form. A BMW 328d powered by a turbodiesel engine is also available.

If cost is no obstacle, we’d take a 340i with the Technology package. It’s got a dreamy smooth six-cylinder engine, an elegant, advanced infotainment system and, for good measure, a wonderful sound system. That said, the 330i packs good punch from its turbo four-cylinder and delivers many desirable features when equipped with the Tech and/or Premium bundles. If driver aids and safety are a top priority, also check the boxes for the Driver Assistance or Driver Assistance Plus packages.
