The biggest change for the 2014 3-Series, is the lack of coupe and convertible models. These have now been redubbed as the 4-series, keeping things more in line with the rest of BMW's naming scheme. Wagons have been updated to match the current generation of sedans and a new base engine is available in the 320i.
A wide variety of options; athletic driving feel; fuel efficiency; high-tech options; long list of appearance packages and trims; compact size and maneuverability; practicality and comfort
The BMW 3-Series is a family of sporty sedans and wagons sized at what would be considered a compact car in the U.S. 2014 BMW 3-Series Sedans and Sports Wagon models are built on a new-generation platform that made its debut with the 2012-model sedan--and is slightly longer, lower, and wider. Across its entire lineup, the 3-Series models stand out for being athletic, responsive and fun to drive--as well as more fuel-efficient than most other alternatives. The F30 redesign brought more back-seat space and cargo space to sedans, as well as a more sophisticated, isolated ride. M3 models, meanwhile, continue to be one of the most practical high-performance cars on the market.
