The BMW 3-Series Sets a Higher Standard in Value for Price

2017-05-31T17:12:03+00:00May 31st, 2017|Award, BMW|

BMW’s sleek, sporty, and affordable 3-Series rises above competitors to win Kelley Blue Book’s 2016 “Best Luxury Sedan” award.

The BMW 3-Series was named best luxury sport sedan in North America in 2016, after sales records proved it was the best-selling luxury car in the country. Dependable and affordable, the 3-Series sedan is among the elite in driver satisfaction. From performance to design, this 6th generation model stands tall among its competitors and is one of many reasons BMW Santa Barbara is proud to be an authorized BMW dealer.

BMW 3-Series: Excellence in Power and Design

BMW vehicles are known for their sporty performance, long-lasting quality, and superior comfort. The 340i sedan, for one, recognized by its well-balanced suspension, ultimate steering, and six-speed transmission, is fuel injected with a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine that gets 30mpg on the highway and hits 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. This four-cylinder engine, with 330 pound-feet of torque, glides through the gears whether you’re gradually gaining speed or putting the petal to the floor.

The new 340i’s exterior design stays the same with updated air intakes and enlarged headlights along with the L-shaped rear LED lights and turning indicators. As usual, BMW generously equips the standard model with features that would usually come at an additional cost such as rain sensing wipers, auto-dimming lights, keyless entry, and a power-glass moon roof. BMW also offers the 18-inch double-spoke alloy rims in the standard model with a variety of additional spoke upgrades to choose from. Other upgrades include black and red leather upholstery, and the track handling package. The track-handling package includes matte chrome exterior trim, anthracite wood interior trim and M Sport brakes

Technology Fanatics Are Blown Away by the 2017 BMW 5 Series

2017-02-17T08:40:05+00:00February 17th, 2017|BMW, New Vehicles|

First drive reviews for the 2017 BMW 5 Series Sedan have been raving over the vehicle’s revolutionary technology features.

Though the new 2017 BMW 5 Series Sedan will not offer much change in style or size from its predecessors, it will be loaded with state of the art technology. The 2017 5 Series is everything you’d expect from a modern vehicle update and more. It is lighter, faster, more efficient, and equipped with proto-autonomous technology yet to be seen in the public market. BMW Santa Barbara is excited for the release of the new 5 Series because it is just another demonstration of BMW’s ability to fuel the progression of the auto industry. The 2017 model is set to release in February, so be sure to contact BMW Santa Barbara where we will answer all of your questions and ensure that you are at the front of the line when this vehicle debuts for public purchase.

Leading the Technology Race

Multiple first drive reviews of the 2017 BMW 5 Series have made a point of praising the luxurious technology features added to this model. The infotainment system is more interactive than any previous system in a BMW. The 10.3-inch touchscreen display offers the unique capability of managing the system in more than one way. Through a futuristic concept, some commands of the infotainment system can be activated through physical gestures in front of the screen. For instance, when you twirl your finger, the radio volume increases. Though the language for gesture control is still quite limited, it is a really exciting concept that will continue to advance in further models of the 5 Series.

Another feature in the technosphere of the new 5 Series is Apple CarPlay available wirelessly for the first time. This offers a Wi-Fi hotspot, an optional wireless charging capability, and the latest BMW Connected services. One feature of BMW Connected is the ability to stream the 3D-view camera to your smartphone.

Though the concept of autonomous parking is not new to the industry, the BMW 5 Series definitely offers the most polished version. In addition to being able to park in perpendicular and parallel parking spaces, the 5 Series can also brake, accelerate, and shift on its own. So if you’re a technology nut who still values style, comfort, and efficiency, there is no better fit than the 2017 BMW 5 Series. At BMW Santa Barbara, our brand-trained sales experts are eager to tell you more about this model and any other BMW model you may be interested in.

Hot Technology Topics in the Auto Industry

Autonomous Vehicles

For years, autonomously driven vehicles have appeared in Science Fiction movies as a concept that exists only in the unforeseeable future. However, this is likely to change soon as automakers have already implemented concepts like lane keeping assist or adaptive cruise control. These features are considered to be Level 1 or 2 in autonomous functionality. BMW’s vision for the next generation of cars is Level 3 in autonomous functionality, meaning future vehicles will be fully autonomous with the option for the driver to regain control if desired. BMW is also considering the concept of self-balancing motorcycles.

Alternative Energy

As is consistent with most industries, the automotive industry is trying to shift toward more sustainable practices. The Green movement has played an important role in the auto industry in recent years, but there still has not been an effective push for any brand that has eliminated the need for gasoline. BMW predicts that this push for alternative energy sources for powertrains will only accelerate in the coming years. That’s why the engineers in BMW’s Mini division have been working on the Mini-E series, set to debut in 2019. This line of Mini’s will provide urban mobility in compact, customizable, zero-emission vehicles.

In addition to battery-electric vehicles, BMW has been working with Toyota in hydrogen fuel cell technology. Whichever of these alternative solutions is the one to eliminate dependence on fossil fuels, you can be assured BMW will be among the first to introduce it.
