The new 2012 3-Series sedans are nearly four inches longer than the previous models, with two inches of extra wheelbase; about an inch of that goes to increased rear legroom, and that extra bit goes a long way. The 3-Series still isn’t good for having adults ride in the back seat on long road trips, but most will now find it tight but tolerable back there. Front seats, whether the base perches or the more heavily bolstered ones that come with the Sport package, are supportive, comfortable, and adjustable for a wide range.

For several of its generations, the 3-Series has been powered only by in-line six-cylinder engines. But for 2012 the 3-Series gets an all-new turbocharged four-cylinder engine in 328i models. The new engine makes 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque—more than many V-6 engines—yet it hits EPA highway ratings of up to 36 mpg. That’s made possible in part due to a new eight-speed automatic transmission (a six-speed manual is standard), along with a host of high-tech improvements, including Auto Start-Stop, which smartly stops the engine at stoplights to save fuel, restarting when you lift off the brake. 335i models get the latest version of BMW’s turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, making 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque
