2011 BMW 3-Series 328I Wagon Edition

2011 BMW 3-Series Review :

The BMW 3 Series is the one car in the BMW lineup that most closely embodies the automaker's "Ultimate Driving Machine" tagline. The 3 Series lineup has a model variant that will suit just about any driver's taste. It doesn't matter if you choose a base 328i coupe or the amazing M3 sport sedan; you will likely be rewarded every time you drive a 3 Series.

The 3 Series lineup comes in coupe, sedan, wagon and convertible forms, and is offered with naturally aspirated, turbocharged and diesel versions of BMW's 3.0-liter

Arguably one of, if not the best all-around sports car on the market, the top-of-the-range M3 is pure driving bliss. You become one with the machine, sinking into the soft, supportive sport seats that hold you firmly in place when attacking a mountain road or a race track. With a simple push of the M button you can go from a perfectly comfortable cruiser to an all out performance monster.

What's New
The 335i gets the new inline-6 equipped with a single twin-scroll turbocharger, BMW's Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology, High Precision direct fuel injection, and all-aluminum construction. Also for 2011, the 3-Series coupes will be available with BMW's advanced xDrive all-wheel drive and traction system. BMW has further developed its iDrive nav and entertainment system with new graphics and controls.
The new design of the taillights is unique to the 3 Series Coupe and Convertible. The rear light cluster features two-piece L-shapes and a new color scheme. A new, broader hood and wider kidney grille have also been added.
There are no dramatic changes to the interior of the 3 Series, which features a variety of wood and aluminum trim packages are available at no cost, as well as leatherette or Dakota leather for your upholstery options available in a variety of colors.
Performance & Handling
Through years of refinement, the new I-6, both in naturally aspirated and turbo forms, is more responsive, more fuel efficient and cleaner-running than ever before. The turbo puts out the same power and torque as last year's engine (300/300) but does it more efficiently. The non-turbo 3.0-liter is rated at 230 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque, the same as last year.
The 3 Series' two-stage adaptive brake lights increase in intensity during a full ABS stop. Driver and passenger front airbags are standard, along with frontal side impact and front and rear head curtain bags. Traction and Stability Control are standard.
