Those who have seen recent BMW designs may be pleased to know the grille hasn’t grown in terms of area, though.

That said, the 3 Series is quite refined, with the creamy 3.-litre engines creating barely a whisper of noise and limited sound from the wheels and wind. It’s no Rolls-Royce, but it’s up there with the class leaders, nevertheless.
