The 3 Series is BMW's first rung in their sedan lineup and has been widely regarded as one of the best compact sport sedans on the road. And like every other manufacturer, BMW has gone green by offering a variety of hybrid models.
The ActiveHybrid 3's powertrain consists of a 3-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine mated to an electric motor with a total output of 335 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard and provides sport and manual shift modes. A Hybrid start-stop function shuts the engine off while stopped at an intersection and provides a seamless re-start.
The ActiveHybrid 3 is EPA rated at 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. BMW claims a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.2 seconds. Innovative engineering, abundant luxury and German driving goodness can all be had in the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.
