The 2010 BMW M3 is a high-performance luxury sports car. The M3 is available as a two-door coupe or convertible, and as a four-door sedan. Under the bulbous hood is a 4.0L V8 which screams to an astonishing redline above 8,000 RPM and generates 420 hp. This action is controlled by a six-speed manual transmission but a dual-clutch seven-speed paddle-shifted automatic is also available. The updated iDrive system keeps everything under control on the inside and is within easy reach of the driver.Read more Read less
Following a slight facelift to its sedans and wagons in 2009, BMW's excellent 3-Series returns for 2010 with similar exterior refinements for the 3-Series coupes, including revised front and rear bumpers, newer LED taillights and different side mirrors. The power moonroof which had been standard in the entry-level 328 is now a $1,000 option.
Excellent driving experience; drivetrain and bodystyle variety; superior driver's 6-cylinder powerplant; supercar-performance in M3.
The 2010 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 makes sure no consumer is left behind by offering four body styles, three engines, and both rear- and xDrive all-wheel drive.
