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
