The BMW 3 series is currently in its fifth design generation. It was originally launched in 1975 and the current saloon version was released in 2005. The BMW 3 Series is available as a four-door saloon, a five-door hatchback, a touring car, a convertible and a coupe.
The 3-series is part executive car and part family car. It is a prestigious vehicle and also has a great deal of street credibility primarily because of the BMW badge. As such it appeals at one end to company executives, at the other to the younger driver where it has somewhat of a boy racer image, whilst also retaining appeal as a family car.
Recognisable, beautiful and a fine performer, the most desirable of the marquee is the Convertible, and many experts consider it to be one of the best in its class. It has a folding hard top roof which folds away in 25 seconds.
At the other extreme, the touring car is both practical and elegant. It handles just as well as the saloon and is a wonderful car to drive. As is the whole of the 3-series, it is very comfortable and has the added appeal of having the practicality of a large load space.
As a used car buy, the BMW 3 Series is very popular and there are many of the cars for sale across right across the UK from approved BMW dealers, independent traders and private sellers. Wherever you are in the UK, Motors.co.uk can find a deal on a used BMW 3 series for you.
In terms of performance the ultimate in the BMW 3 Series is the BMW M3. Designed by the same team who design BMW cars and engines for the race track, this is the ultimate v8 powered hot saloon which can sprint to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and has handling to match.
