Ubiquitous With Sporty Driving, the 2017 BMW 330i Remains the Sedan to Beat

The BMW 3 Series is effectively the benchmark for all other entry-level sport sedans, whether in the guise of the 330e plug-in hybrid, or mighty 340i. Expertly crafted and engineered, this sedan provides engagement, luxury, and plenty of power while also making a superlative daily driver. For the best of all worlds, the 2017 330i with xDrive all-wheel drive makes a strong case.

The 330i xDrive comes with a lauded turbocharged inline-four with 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Even with AWD, it returns an impressive 33 mpg on the highway, and sometimes even gets better. While confident and precise steering and a comfortable ride is the hallmark of a sport sedan, the 330i reminds us that engagement is key. Steering, brakes, and acceleration are smooth and provide solid feedback in all situations. As for the understated elegance of the interior, you’ll want for nothing, especially the essentials: the seating position is stellar, with great visibility, and access to the controls.

Competitors strive to match it, but none can replace the ubiquitous mix of performance and luxury of the 3 Series sport sedan. To find out what the fuss is about, add it to your test drive list, and schedule an appointment with our BMW dealership in Beaverton, OR as it’s convenient.
