New BMW 3 Series

The Icon is Waiting for You in Shrewsbury

Way back in 1975, BMW ushered in a motoring revolution when it introduced the BMW 3 Series. Now, more than 40 years later, the 3 Series is still the segment's standard, offering the refinement and driving experience that all competitors measure themselves against. Whether you choose the Sedan, the Sports Wagon or the Gran Turismo, you're blessed with the European style and handling that makes taking to the Worcester-area roads such a joy.

BMW 3 Series Exterior

No matter which body style you look at, there are iconic elements that clearly identify a 3 Series as the heir to the revolutionary model that debuted in the 1970s. From the readily-identifiable Hofmeister kink that runs the length of the body to the signature kidney grille, the 3 Series evokes a sense of grace and power that still draws appreciative glances as it rolls down the highway.

BMW 3 Series Interior

With seating for five, the BMW 3 Series offers ample headroom and legroom in both rows of seating, so even passengers in the rear won't feel cramped -- unlike the environment in many competing vehicles' back seats. Speaking of the interior environment: the cabin in every 3 Series model is handsomely-styled, offering a clean environment where every element is placed in a way that makes ergonomic sense.

The 3 Series Sedan offers 13 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the trunk, more than the class average. If you opt for the Gran Turismo, you'll have access to 24.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity, while the Sports Wagon gives you an expansive 27.5 cubic feet -- more than enough to carry the family and their gear for a weekend away!

BMW 3 Series Performance

The 3 Series offers customers a complete range of engine options, from TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines to a plug-in hybrid powertrain that pairs a gasoline engine to a lithium-ion battery-powered electric motor. There's even an inline six-cylinder that makes 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, delivering a 0-60 mph time of fewer than five seconds. If you want the ultimate power output in the 3 Series family, you'll want to spring for the 425-horsepower M3.

Don't worry that BMW sacrifices fuel efficiency for the sake of power numbers, however. The four-cylinder diesel engine is rated by the EPA to deliver 31 MPG in the city and 43 MPG on the highway, while the hybrid powertrain manages an EPA-estimated 71 MPGe -- making either an ideal choice if you commute from the Westborough, Northborough or Southborough areas.

No matter which BMW 3 Series model you choose, your vehicle will include rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, a 9-speaker audio system that features a 6.5-inch LCD screen, Bluetooth® streaming, HD radio, a USB port, and a rearview camera. Available options include a Surround View Camera, a hands-free power trunk lid, navigation and an M Sport package that features enhancements that turn your 3 Series into an even more performance-oriented vehicle.

In addition to the standard rearview camera, each BMW 3 Series includes standard safety features like eight airbags, active head restraints and impact sensors that unlock the doors, shut down the electrical system and activate the vehicle's hazards after a collision. ; available safety features include a head-up display, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, active park assist, parking sensors, automatic high beams, adaptive headlights, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and a 360-degree camera system.
