2013 BMW 3-Series
2013 BMW 3-Series

New For 2013

The new 3-series sedan arrived in late 2011, and now comes the new wagon, all-wheel drive (for the sedan and wagon), and the first-ever 3-series hybrid, the ActiveHybrid 3. The new 3-series coupe and convertible will make their debut during 2013 and might switch to a new, 4-series designation, the better to justify their price premium.


The BMW 3-series has epitomized the sport sedan for about as long as the genre has existed. It’s unlikely that another car has been benchmarked as often—and no wonder. The 3-series, in any of its many iterations, is extraordinarily entertaining to drive. Its firm, sporty chassis marries exhilarating handling and a supple ride. Now there is a new-generation 3-series, and it faithfully upholds the family tradition. The redesigned, sixth-generation 328i and 335i have arrived—in sedan and wagon form. (The previous coupe and convertible continue; they, too, will be replaced during 2013.) The biggest change is in the 328i, where the iconic straight six has been kicked out in favor of a turbo four—as it has elsewhere in the BMW lineup. Although we miss the unique character of the six, the turbo four is actually quicker and provides better fuel economy—up to 34 mpg on the highway. The in-line six, in turbo form, remains under the hood of the 335i sedan. BMW’s slick stick shift is still available, and the optional automatic is now an eight-speed (the two-doors still use a six-speed). At the top of the heap is the M3, a performance legend with a 414-hp V-8 that screams to an 8400-rpm redline. It’s available as a coupe or a convertible. Between the 335i and the M3 lies the 335is, which offers nearly the performance of an M3 yet costs about $9000 less.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags (except in the convertible); active head restraints for the front seats; traction and stability control; ABS; and a tire-pressure monitor are standard. Adaptive xenon headlamps are included on the 135i and optional on the 128i. BMW Assist with automated crash response is optional.

You'll like:

  • Great to drive
  • Huge variety of models and powertrains
  • M3 is a superstar

You won't like:

  • Base models lack equipment
  • Hybrid fuel economy not great

2013 BMW 328i Sport Automatic Front Right View 1
Not long into our Four Seasons test of a Luxury Line 328i, I realized that the correct powertrain setup for this car would include the eight-speed automatic, not the six-speed manual. Never mind dispensing with the the vague, spongy action of the manual transmission's clutch pedal and the long-throw shift linkage. Instead consider that the eight-speed automatic is well matched to the N20 four-cylinder engine. You never find yourself down on power and the shifts are always smooth. The automatic is a better fit for a sport sedan that errs on the side of luxury.

We hope you like diesel-powered driving machines, because come late 2013/early 2014, BMW’s North American showrooms will be packed with them. We had a quick look at a product timing list issued by BMW to its dealer body, and here’s what you can expect.
