The 2017 BMW 3-Series Sedan is a car that most of us are familiar with. It competes in one of the most popular segments in Malaysia that is occupied by the likes of Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Lexus IS, Infiniti Q50 and Volvo V60. There are several variants with different powertrains and trim levels to choose from.
All 2017 BMW 3 Series variants are equipped with turbocharged engines, and a ZF sourced eight-speed automatic transmission, except for the range topping M3 sedan, that benefits from M Division's twin clutch sports transmission. Here’s a breakdown of the performance figures:
318i: The 318i is powered by a 1.5-litre mill that develops 136hp at 4,500rpm and 220Nm of torque from 1,250rpm to 4,300rpm. 0-100km/h time comes in 8.9 seconds and tops off at 210km/h. This entry level sedan consumes 5.1-litres of fuel per 100km and CO2 emission is 119g/km.
330e: The 330e takes the 184hp / 290Nm 2.0-litre four-pot from the 320i and boosts it with electrification to generate a net system output of 252hp and 420Nm. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds and capable of maxing out at 225 km/h, the 330e is perhaps most noteworthy for its 37km all-electric cruising range and rated fuel consumption of 2.1 litres/100km.
