2016 BMW 3-Series Full Specifications & Price

First introduced for the 2012 model year, the current 3 Series continues to offer one of the best balances of handling and luxury in the automotive world.

With balanced proportions, crisp lines and the famous Hofmeister rear window kink, the sedan’s exterior pays homage to previous 3 Series models while also incorporating modern touches like BMW’s new corporate nose, which features narrowed headlights that spill into the traditional kidney grille.

The cabin incorporates sinuous lines, high-quality materials and an overall feeling of fine craftsmanship. Available Sport, Luxury and M Sport “lines” let buyers personalize the interior with unique trim and upholstery elements.

Instrumentation consists of BMW’s tried-and-true quartet of simple, driver-friendly analog gauges, while a tablet-style 6.5-inch display screen mounted atop the dashboard displays stereo and vehicle information. Shell out for the optional navigation system, and the screen is upgraded to a larger 8.8-inch unit.


All secondary systems are controlled through BMW’s iDrive infotainment setup, which has evolved over the years from a bewildering complex unit to surprisingly simple and user-friendly system. Redundant controls on the steering wheel and dashboard provide alternate means of accessing the electronics.

The optional navigation system is available with Google point-of-interest search and real time traffic information, and it also features a touchpad mounted on the iDrive knob that lets users write out phone numbers, contact names and navigation destinations – and also zoom in or zoom out the map – with a finger.

Other extra-cost gadgetry includes active cruise control that uses radar and a camera to maintain a set distance from the car in front (even in stop-and-go traffic); a Side and Top view camera system that provides a comprehensive view of the environment around the car to aid parking maneuvers; and a high-resolution Head-Up system that displays vehicle speed along with speed limit and navigation info on the lower windshield.

Occupant Safety
All 3 Series models come standard with dual front, front side, front knee and full-length side curtain airbags in addition to traction and stability control systems.

Also included is BMW Assist eCall, which automatically notifies a BMW call center in the event of a crash and can even predict the severity of occupant injuries.

Options include a Lane Departure Warning system that alerts the driver when the 3-Series begins to wander into an adjacent lane; an Active Blind Spot Detection system that provides a notification if a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot; and an Attention Assist system that analyzes driver behavior and displays a coffee cup icon encouraging a break if it detects signs of fatigue.
