Considering the acceleration figures, the 2018 BMW 3 Series isn't the best performer amongst the competitors and takes its time to reach 60MPH from naught. Even in the quarter-mile run, the car is an average performer and won't pin any excitement meter around. The fastest car of the lot is 2018 Cadillac CTS which is just a tad bit quicker than the 2018 BMW 3 Series and does the 0-60 MPH run in 3.7 seconds. It also reaches the quarter-mile mark faster than the 2018 BMW 3 Series.
The braking on the 2018 BMW 3 Series is quite sure-footed and has an evident bite to it. Although it is not the best braking car in its segment it's not the worst either. The ride takes some time to come to a complete halt but it does so with composure and the car doesn't sway away from its path. During the emergency braking test, the car decelerates from 60MPH to zero in 123 feet which is a little slower than 2018 Jaguar XF.
