The 2018 BMW 3 Series Sedan is a compact sedan segment offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $34,900. For that price, it mainly competes with the Audi A4, Jaguar XE, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Between 3 trims, the 2018 BMW 3 Series sedan offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 engine capable of making 180 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is an upgraded 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 motor that induces 248 horsepower. Both the engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with an 8-speed manual and RWD models get an optional 6-speed manual transmission as well. Also available is a 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 engine capable of inducing 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque The BMW 3 Series sedan reaches 60 mph from zero in 7.1 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 6.4 seconds with the 2.0L Inline-4 and to 4.4 seconds with the 6-cylinder engine. Depending on the powertrain, the BMW 3 Series sedan can manage a combined fuel economy between 28 and 27 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 14 striking colors the BMW 3 Series sedan comes in really pull you towards itself.
