If I had to choose one word to describe the new BMW 3 Series, it would be polished. The seventh-generation of Bavaria’s popular sedan, internally designated the G20 and replacement to the F30, has become even more sophisticated and refined, but at the heart of it is still a driver’s car that delivers on the promise of its forebears. It’s become less apt to refer to the 3 Series as a junior sedan as we once used to, because it’s become a scaled-down luxury car and can be thought of as a 5 Series with slightly less leg room. That leg room is the best it’s ever been as the new 3 Series has grown 76mm in length, making for a cabin that very comfortably seats four adults. The 480l boot is a very useful size too, and the rear seats flip down to boost luggage space.
