The F30 generation of BMW’s most popular car was miles ahead of the E90 it replaced in terms of refinement. From the driver’s seat you would almost be forgiven for thinking you were in a 5-series! Make no mistake however, the F30 is still dynamically superior to its competition from the other major German manufacturers.
With the twin-power turbo 1.6L engine, this car surprises with really keen performance, at least equal to that of the older generation 320i. This power is transmitted through one of the best automatic gearboxes in the world, the incredible ZF 8-speed tiptronic transmission. With perfectly selected ratios and absolutely seamless gear changes, you almost never have to go over 2000rpm in this car and it will even cruise on the highway at 120kph without exceeding 2000rpm! This makes for an exceptionally relaxed drive in near silence.
