For Few coupes are as good to drive or have such an impressive engine range. It's practical for a two-door car, too, with lots of space for four and a reasonable boot.
Against The conservative looks mean the this is more of a two-door saloon than a striking coupe. The ride is firm, and some may find the iDrive control system fiddly.
Strong performance, sensible running costs, impressive practicality and fine handling make this a great coupe, provided you like the understated looks.
The Coupe doesn’t have quite such a wide engine range as the saloon or Touring versions of the 3 Series, but there are still four petrols and four diesels to choose from.
Our favourite is the 335i. Why spend nearly half as much again on an M3 when the 335i is so quick? On a more modest budget and with an eye on the tax bill for company car drivers, the 320d is a compelling car, but to be honest, there isn’t a bad model in the range.
There’s a choice of SE and M Sport specifications. SE comes with a long list of standard equipment and costs much less, so it’s the one we’d recommend. On the other hand, M Sport models have sportier looks and stiffened suspension for the ultimate in handling.
It’s worth buying one of BMW’s inclusive servicing packages, which will make the car easier to sell on.
