The biggest news for the 2007 3-Series is the introduction of BMW's twin-turbo 3.0L six-cylinder. This engine, found in the 335 models, produces a ripping 300-horsepower and an identical amount of torque. The base six-cylinder now produces 230 horsepower (versus 215 in 2006). Nomenclature has been changed to reflect these powerplant changes, with the 325 and 330 now being called the 328 and 335. All-wheel drive is newly available on the coupe and with the normally aspirated engine on the sedan. A rear-wheel-drive wagon is also new for 2007. The vaunted M3 will return in the 2008 model year.
Driving pleasure par excellence; wide variety of bodies and drivetrains; the best in-line six-cylinder engines for those who love motoring.
The 2007 BMW 3-Series continues to be the benchmark against which other entry-level luxury cars are measured, mainly courtesy of its excellent driving experience. Power, braking, and handling are perfectly matched to the vehicle's size and intended usage. The way BMW takes care of business inside the cockpit also has a lot to do with the popularity of this breed. The 3-Series also makes sure no buyer is left behind by offering four body styles, two engines, and both rear- and all-wheel drive.
