2006 BMW 330i Sedan

The BMW 3 Series, as just about everyone who cares about cars and driving knows, is an icon. It's an icon for many reasons: Among them are its style; its quality; its unique combination of performance, practicality and European luxury in a compact package. (continued below)

New BMW 3 Series Sedan: The Icon of Sport Sedans Enters its Fifth Generation

Source: BMW | Published: Mon Oct 03, 2005

(continued from above)

Above all, the 3 Series' iconic status derives from how it drives. Over the decades, the 3 Series has always been remarkably agile and pleasurable to drive, without compromising comfort and everyday usability. Though many have tried and are still trying, no one else quite knows how to match this constellation of attributes.

Incrementally Larger and Roomier than Predecessors

Compared to their predecessors, these new Sedans grow in nearly every dimension. Wheelbase is up by 1.4 inches; length is 2.2 in. greater; width is up by fully 3 in.; and the new models are 0.8 in. taller. These increases in exterior dimensions translate into enhanced luxury and comfort equipment, and greater passenger and cargo space: Shoulder room, front head room, rear knee room, and EPA passenger compartment and trunk volumes are all up, as shown in the table below. Yet there's not a hint of the 3 Series abandoning its tradition of compact exterior dimensions; and despite extensive new content, weight is up by less than 100 lb.

The Benchmark Sports Sedans Set a New Benchmark

'Few cars have inspired as much competition as this family of perennial pacesetters,' raves Car and Driver in its January '05 10Best award, 'and fewer still have resisted competition so successfully. What's the 3 Series' secret' Smooth 6-cylinder power, exemplary ergonomics, silky-smooth shifting, supple ride quality, eager responses, superb seats, and proportions that never look out of date.'

All-New 6-Cylinder Engines

These days, most 6-cylinder engines are V-6s. By contrast, BMW's 'sixes' are inline engines, noted not only for their layout, but also for exceptional smoothness and unique sound. BMW customers and independent critics treasure them for these attributes; BMW decided to retain the inline-6 while developing it toward reduced weight, more compact dimensions and even more brilliant performance, smoothness and sound.
