The BMW 3 Series is one of the most popular used cars in the UK, and with good reason. It is great to drive, built to a very high standard and is roomy enough to use as a family car, plus there are versions of the 3 Series to suit every budget and requirement, whether it’s a frugal diesel or a high performance six-cylinder petrol model.
In this video review, CarGurus contributing editor Chris Knapman guides you through what to look out for with the sixth-generation 3 Series, known as the F30. Sold from 2011 onwards, the F30 is a rival to the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and is available with rear-wheel drive or xDrive four-wheel drive, as well as manual or automatic gearboxes and in a range of trims including SE, Sport and M Sport.
In this video Chris concentrates on the saloon version of the 3 Series, explaining just what makes it so popular and demonstrating how much space there is inside. He also gives a few handy pointers (did you know, for example, that not all 3 Series come with split-folding rear seats?) and explains why BMW’s iDrive infotainment system is one of the best on the market.
After watching you’ll have plenty of information about what to look for when viewing a 3 Series, which combined with the unique way CarGurus ranks used car listings will help you to find a great deal from a top-rated dealer.
