The 3 Series is currently undergoing a range evolution. Last year came the all-new sixth-generation sedan powered by 240-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder (in the 328i) or a turbocharged inline-six cylinder making 300 horsepower. Each is mated to an 8-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Sport-inclined fuel misers can choose the 335-horsepower ActiveHybrid 3 (25/33 city/highway mpg) with electric motor and lithium-ion battery aboard. New for 2013 is the Sport Wagon that gains the new sedan's styling and four-cylinder/8-speed gearbox powertrain. As such, it's also available in four trims: Sport (gloss black kidney grille, black apron, double-spoke 18-inch wheels, black exhaust tips), Luxury (chrome kidney grille, 18-inch multispoke wheel, chrome A/C and radio surrounds, chrome exhaust tips), Modern (satin aluminum kidney grille, 18-inch turbine-style wheels, matte silver and oyster colored trim), and M Sport Package (unique aerodynamic kit, 18- or 19-inch wheels, lowered M suspension, Shadowline interior). Coupe and convertible aficionados will have to make do with the existing lineup of 3.0-liter (turbocharged and naturally aspirated) inline-six engines ranging in output from 230- to 320-horsepower. They'll also get styling that's not yet up-to-date and in line with that of the new sedan. The sportiest 335is Coupe and Convertible stand out by way of their sport exhaust, 18-inch wheels, aerodynamic kit, and 10-way power adjustable front seats. Both Coupe and new Sedan can be had with BMW's electronically-controlled xDrive all-wheel drive.
