    BMW 3 Series i 4dr Sedan. In the past, I have been dissuaded from buying a BMW because of connotations of being expensive to buy new (or used), costly to repair, and unreliable in general. BMW I convertible.

    Interesting fact! In 1937, BMW built the world's fastest motorcycle. It was sped up to a speed of 278 km per hour.

    Those 2 cylinders are VERY expensive! I still haven't had time with the new i with the turbocharged four-cylinder, but in i guise it certainly hits all the right points. In any mode, the car feels solid and stable and the steering is as one expects from BMW--accurate and stable. Those extra dimensions are immediately apparent in the cabin with back-seat passengers benefitting with more knee- and headroom. The price tag is pretty steep, considering our long-term Kia Rio SX has a backup camera, and this 3-series doesn't.

Medium luxury sedan Price: If you want one with more than four cylinders, your only option is the i - the i has now shed two cylinders and grown a turbocharger.

    The 3 Series has always been at the front of the sports sedan pack, and, as we found, this latest generation of i is no exception. The fit and finish of the F30 3 Series interior is significantly better than the old E90, and the cabin design is far more visually interesting.

    Trimmed in black leather and accented with dark glossy wood and silver-painted trim, the interior of our Luxury-grade i tester comes with a distinct air of opulence. While the backrests give decent upper-body support, the squabs are flat with little bolstering.

    Standard features on the i include bi-xenon dusk-sensing headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, a speed limiter, sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors, electric front seats, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, an 8. The i we tested came in the optional Luxury specification, which added lightweight inch alloy wheels, red stitching on the steering wheel and chrome exterior and interior trim.

    It is, as mentioned, the only six-cylinder now on offer in the new F30 3 Series range. Low-end torque is especially strong, with peak twist available from between rpm and rpm. That exceptionally wide torque band translates into superb tractability - it will haul from barely off idle.

    That gearbox, by the way, is superb. It will smoothly slur gears together during normal driving and deliver clean, crisp shifts when in Sport mode.

    Overtaking is a blur, on-ramps are dispatched in a jiffy and the i bursts from corner to corner with just a squeeze of the accelerator. The inch alloys and run-flat tyres transmit some road roar into the cabin, but noise and vibration suppression is otherwise very good.

    The i is equipped with engine start-stop as standard, springing back into life with just a slight judder as the engine is re-ignited. It shines brighter though when the i is shown a set of curvy roads, and it darts through corners with little body roll and excellent traction. Our car was equipped with the standard coil springs and dampers, but keener drivers may want the electronically-adjustable dampers, lower ride height and sportier spring rates of the optional Adaptive M suspension.

    The steering is electrically assisted, and ultimately a little lacking in feel and feedback. A variable-ratio steering rack is available as an option, but is also electrically-assisted.
