Edmunds' Expert Review
If you're in the market for a compact luxury sport sedan, the 2016 BMW
3 Series should be near the top of your list. Whether you're enjoying
its blend of features and refinement or putting its smooth optional
engine to the test, you'll probably come away with a positive
impression. Let's find out more about all this well-rounded car has to
It's shaping up to be another banner year for the 2016 BMW 3 Series
sedan and wagon. One could argue that BMW has lost its traditional
sporting edge in some respects, but when it comes to the compact luxury
sport segment, the 3 Series continues to stand apart. Facing fierce
competition from fresh-faced rivals, BMW has responded with a number of
changes for 2016 that help keep the 3 Series current. Even without
them, though, this would still be the segment front runner, both for
avowed driving enthusiasts and for shoppers who just prefer a pleasing
luxury car experience.
Headlining this year's updates is a brand-new engine for the
six-cylinder 3 Series sedan, which gets a new 340i name to mark the
occasion. Though it retains its predecessor's turbocharged 3.0-liter
specification, the 340i makes 20 more horsepower and 30 additional
pound-feet of torque. It's a timely improvement, as our performance
testing showed that the 335i was barely quicker than the fuel-sipping
four-cylinder 328i, making the six-cylinder's price premium hard to
rationalize. Notably, the 340i is offered with a six-speed manual
transmission in both rear- and all-wheel-drive layouts, something few
luxury automakers bother with these days. The performance-minded
ActiveHybrid 3 has been discontinued and replaced by the 330e plug-in
hybrid. It isn't as fleet-footed as its predecessor, but it is more
fuel-efficient and you can stretch your mileage further by charging up.
The other changes for 2016 are relatively minor. BMW has tweaked the
styling front and rear, but you've got to be a hard-core fan to notice
the difference. Similarly, there are a few new interior touches -- a
gloss-black center console, for example, with a handy lid for the
cupholders -- but we'd hardly call them game-changing. The available
LED headlights (standard on 340i) are an increasingly common feature
that BMW did well to add. Fundamentally, though, this is the same 3
Series we've known and loved since 2012, and the competition is still
scrambling to keep up.
The most direct threat to the 3 Series' throne comes in the form of the
Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which entices with its baby-S-Class styling,
appealing feature set and strong performance. The 2016 Audi A4 (or the
related Allroad wagon) is getting up there in years, but it's a
satisfying choice nonetheless with its nimble handling and understated
elegance. There's also the bold, well-equipped 2016 Lexus IS 350 (as
well as the new turbocharged IS 250) and the sharp-handling 2016
Cadillac ATS. But if you want the best of everything in one place, the
2016 BMW 3 Series keeps on leading the way.
The 2016 BMW 3 Series is available in sedan and wagon body styles. (A
hatchback model, the 3 Series Gran Turismo, is reviewed separately, as
are the coupe and convertible, which are collectively known as the BMW
4 Series.) Sedans come in 320i, 328i, 328d, 330e and 340i trim levels.
Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all (except the 330e, which is
rear-drive only) are offered with all-wheel drive, which BMW calls
xDrive. The wagon is available only in 328i xDrive and 328d xDrive
Standard features for the entry-level 320i include 17-inch alloy wheels
with run-flat tires, automatic headlights, foglights, remote keyless
entry, push-button start, automatic wipers, cruise control, dual-zone
automatic climate control, six-way manually adjustable front seats,
leatherette premium vinyl upholstery, a leather-wrapped
tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, BMW Assist emergency telematics,
Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, the iDrive electronics
interface, a 6.5-inch display and a nine-speaker sound system with a CD
player, HD radio, an auxiliary audio jack and a USB port.
The 328i sedan adds a more powerful version of the 320i's engine, LED
foglights, the Sport Line trim package (gloss-black exterior accents,
anthracite headliner, sport instrumentation and 10-way power-adjustable
sport front seats), power-folding auto-dimming side mirrors with
heating, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, wood trim, driver memory
functions and split-folding rear seatbacks. The 328d and 330e
sedans are comparably equipped but are powered by a diesel engine and
hybrid powertrain, respectively. The 328i and 328d wagons, too, are
comparably equipped and also come with a panoramic sunroof.
The 340i sedan adds the six-cylinder engine, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED
headlights, matte chrome exterior trim, keyless ignition and entry
(including a power trunk lid with a foot sensor), a sunroof and a
16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system (optional on most other models).
There are several bundled option packages for the 2016 3 Series. The
320i alone is eligible for a Sport package that adds 18-inch wheels,
the anthracite headliner, manually adjustable sport seats and an M
steering wheel. The 320i's Premium package adds a few of the higher
trims' standard items, including auto-dimming mirrors, keyless entry
and ignition and the sunroof, and it also adds power front seats (of
the non-sport variety) with four-way power lumbar and satellite radio.
The 328's Premium package is pared down to keyless entry and ignition,
the sunroof, satellite radio and power lumbar, though it also adds
The Cold Weather package (requires optional leather upholstery)
includes a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats and
headlight washers. The Lighting package consists of LED headlights and
foglights on the 320i, while the 328 trims get an enhanced version with
adaptive LED headlights and automatic high beams that are separately
optional on the 340i. The Track Handling package includes
variable-ratio steering, M sport brakes, lightweight 18-inch wheels and
adaptive suspension dampers.
The M Sport package adds 18-inch wheels, an aero body kit, unique trim
elements, an M steering wheel and a sport-tuned suspension. The Luxury
package unlocks a variety of upholstery and trim pieces that allow
further personalization. Neither is offered on the 320i.
Going with the Technology package (also not available on the 320i) gets
you a voice-controlled navigation system, a higher-resolution 8.8-inch
display screen, a touchpad iDrive controller, a color head-up display,
an upgraded instrument cluster, BMW Online with MyInfo (provides news
and info to the car), BMW Apps (connectivity for select smartphone
apps) and BMW Remote Services (allows select mobile devices to lock the
car remotely, turns on the climate control and includes a stolen
vehicle recovery service, among other things).
For extra safety, the Driver Assistance package provides a rearview
camera along with front and rear parking sensors. The Driver Assistance
Plus package (not available on the 320i) gets those items plus side-
and top-view cameras, blind-spot monitoring, a lane departure warning
system, frontal collision warning/mitigation with automatic braking and
Stand-alone options, depending on trim, include some of the above
features plus rear side window sunshades, an automated parking system
and adaptive cruise control.
For 2016, every 3 Series receives mild exterior styling updates and
interior trim enhancements, along with a smattering of suspension and
steering tweaks that are said to improve handling precision. The
six-cylinder sedan gets a name change from 335i to 340i, a new engine
with more output and a standard 16-speaker stereo. The ActiveHybrid 3
has been discontinued, and the 330e plug-in hybrid has taken its place.
LED headlights are now available, as are automatic remote updates for
the navigation system and a new Track Handling package that replaces
the Dynamic Handling package. Finally, the Sport Line package is now
standard on all but the 320i, though it comes without last year's M
sport suspension, which is available separately.
2016 BMW 3 Series sedans offer a choice between rear-wheel drive and
all-wheel drive (xDrive). All-wheel drive (AWD) is standard on 3 Series
wagons. A six-speed manual is a no-cost option on RWD gas-powered
sedans and the 340i AWD, but the wagon comes only with the eight-speed
automatic transmission. Certain automatic-equipped 3 Series cars have a
"sport" version of this transmission with steering wheel paddle
shifters. Both the manual and the automatic come with an automatic
stop-start function that turns off the engine when the car stops in
order to save fuel.
The 320i has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 180
hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Considering we recorded a decent 7.3-second
0-60-mph time at the track, the EPA fuel economy ratings are impressive
at 28 mpg combined (24 city/36 highway) for a rear-drive sedan with the
automatic. We duplicated the EPA's combined target on our own 120-mile
mixed-driving evaluation route. The manual version also rates 28 mpg
combined (23/36), and the xDrive version is nearly as good at 27 mpg
The 328i model uses a more powerful version of the 320i's engine, rated
at 240 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The EPA estimates an
automatic-equipped 328i will achieve 27 mpg combined, while the manual
and all-wheel-drive versions (wagon included) are rated at 26 mpg
combined, excellent numbers for this class. A 328i M Sport automatic
posted a swift 5.4-second sprint to 60 mph at our track and logged a
remarkable 33 mpg on our 120-mile loop.
The 328d models have a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder
rated at 180 hp and a robust 280 lb-ft of torque. This engine only
comes with the automatic. Rear-drive 328d sedans are rated at 36 mpg
combined, while the 328d xDrive sedan and wagon are both rated at 34
mpg combined. On our 120-mile evaluation loop, we achieved an admirable
34 mpg in a 328d wagon. The diesel is also pretty quick; we recorded a
7.2-second 0-60 mph time for the wagon at our test facility.
The 340i sedan has a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine rated
at 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. With the automatic, it's EPA-rated
at 26 mpg combined (22/33) with RWD and an identical 26 mpg combined
with AWD. The manual 340i drops to 24 mpg combined (20/30) with RWD and
23 mpg combined (20/29) with AWD. An all-wheel-drive 340i we tested
accelerated from zero to 60 mph in a remarkable 4.4 seconds.
Finally, there's the 330e hybrid, which utilizes a turbocharged
2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to an eight-speed automatic
transmission, an electric motor and rear-wheel drive. Total combined
output for the engine and motor is 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The
330e's battery can be charged from a 240-volt outlet in 2.2 hours.
According to the EPA, the 330e achieves 72MPGe (mpg equivalent) with a
14-mile EV range factored in and 31 mpg combined in regular
gas-electric mode. At the Edmunds test track, a 330e sprinted from 0 to
60 mph in 6.2 seconds.
Every 2016 BMW 3 Series comes standard with antilock brakes, traction
and stability control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and
front knee airbags.
The stability control system integrates several features designed to
improve braking performance, such as periodically wiping the brake
rotors dry when the windshield wipers are in use and automatically
snugging the pads to the rotors when the driver abruptly lifts off the
gas. BMW Assist emergency communications is standard and includes
automatic crash notification, stolen vehicle recovery and on-demand
Options include parking sensors (front and rear), a rearview camera,
surround- and side-view cameras, blind spot monitoring, a lane
departure warning system, frontal collision warning and frontal
collision mitigation with automatic braking (includes pedestrian
In Edmunds brake testing, a 328i sedan with 18-inch summer tires came
to a stop from 60 mph in 115 feet, while a 328i M Sport stopped in 109
feet — a bit below average and average, respectively, for
this segment with summer tires. The 328d xDrive wagon failed to
impress, however, requiring a long 126 feet.
In government crash testing, the current-generation 3 Series sedan
received five out of five stars for overall crash protection, with four
stars for total frontal protection and five for total side protection.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the sedan the highest
possible rating of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset crash
test but a second-worst "Marginal" in the small-overlap frontal-offset
crash test. In the remaining tests, the 3 Series received a "Good"
rating in the side-impact, roof-strength and seat and head restraint
(whiplash protection) tests.
The 2016 BMW 3 Series delivers the best all-around driving experience
of any compact luxury sport sedan. The ride is smooth and quiet no
matter which driveline, wheels and tires you choose, making the 3
Series a fantastic choice for road trips and local jaunts alike. Power
delivery is strong, complemented by benchmark handling and exemplary
composure when going around turns. Having said that, the 328i is a
desirable upgrade over the 320i for its exemplary combination of
performance and fuel efficiency. The plug-in 330e and diesel 328d are
excellent choices if maximizing your fuel economy potential is a
priority, while the six-cylinder 340i promises improved performance
relative to the discontinued 335i that more easily justifies its higher
One annoyance can be the unrefined nature of the automatic engine
stop-start function. Thankfully, this fuel-saving feature can be
disabled for drivers who find it tiresome. For traditional BMW driving
enthusiasts, the steering will likely be the weakest link in this
package. Most consumers will find it very precise, but it lacks the
organic feel that made older BMWs feel special. Also, the
variable-ratio steering option is sometimes criticized for responses
that are out of sync with the driver inputs, so be sure to sample this
technology before signing up for it.
The 3 Series cabin combines classic BMW design cues with thoroughly
contemporary technology. The familiar analog gauges provide a
historical link with BMWs of previous decades, and materials quality
remains exceptional throughout. Perceived build quality is also high.
However, while the standard 6.5-inch iDrive infotainment system is
adequate, you'll want to get the available 8.8-inch screen for a true
luxury electronics interface. The touchpad on top of the iDrive
controller can be used to handwrite inputs using your finger. Overall,
iDrive is pretty easy to use, thanks to straightforward menus, crisp
graphics and quick processing times. But compared to some rival
systems, it typically requires a few more twirls and clicks to get what
The base 320i's manually adjusted front seats are comfortable and
supportive, while the upgraded sport seats are even more so. There's an
impressive range of adjustments regardless of whether you get manual or
power operation. If rear seat accommodations are a priority, you won't
find a more spacious backseat in this class. Rear legroom is
particularly generous. Trunk space is above average in the sedan (13
cubic feet), while the wagon offers a maximum cargo capacity of 53
cubic feet with its seats folded. That's about the same as the rival
Picks: This BMW has obviously always been garaged and is in excellent condition inside and out.
The paint is shiny and shows little to no rock pecks or road rash on the front bumper cover. The body
has no door dings or flaws, the window glass is in excellent condition. The rims have no cosmetic flaws
and the tires are high quality and have deep tread. The carpeting looks new and the leather interior is
excellent ... there are no issues with the seat bolsters and the dashboard has no warping or issues with
leather shrinkage. The door sills show no scuffing from ingress and egress. The interior trim and buttons
looks new and all electronics and dials / buttons function as-designed. Nothing else to reasonably fault.
