Launched in 1975, it’s a popular opinion that the BMW 3 Series changed the shape of the compact executive sector. Since then, some 14 million units have been built, making it one of the best selling cars of all time. The year 2019 marked the start of a new, seventh chapter in the history of the BMW 3 Series.
The third-generation of the BMW 3 Series comprised the widest range of body styles to date, including the Gran Turismo Hatchback, Sedan, Coupé, Convertible, Touring, Compact, & M3 – the latter as a Sedan, Coupé, or Convertible. Regardless of which body style you go for, the 3 Series’ impressive ride & handling come as standard.
Available for lease at Vanarama you’ll find the Touring, Gran Turismo Hatchback & Saloon.
Saloon - The Saloon 3 Series is the ultimate driveway envy car with its agile dynamics & luxury interior.
Touring - This bodystyle takes what’s great about the Saloon but adds space & versatility for those who need a little more practicality & luggage room.
Gran Turismo Hatchback - The GT is an excellent all-rounder, blending comfort & style with the impressive performance & handling you’d expect from the brand. It drives like an executive saloon, but offers the practicality of an estate.
The premium sports sedan segment is among the most competitive in the industry & models such as the Audi A4 or the Mercedes C-Class will never go down without a fight, not even when they begin to show their age.
However, there's a new kid on the block that's in many ways similar to the 3 Series (size, power output) & in most other ways completely different: the Tesla Model 3. If you judge it on sales, it's actually taken over the 3 Series as the segment leader.
“For many customers, the BMW 3 Series is the ultimate BMW & the face of the brand.”
