Expert Rating

25 City / 33 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2015 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 OVERVIEW

BMW's compact 3 Series is most famous for its fun-to-drive factor, but there's a secondary key to its success: variety. You get to choose from an enticing array of drivetrains, trims, body styles and mechanical hardware. Naturally, there's a hybrid in the mix, and it's not just about efficiency. The ActiveHybrid 3 is one powerful luxury compact that does the 3 Series performance legacy proud.

What's New For 2015

The ActiveHybrid 3 receives minor equipment adjustments only.

Choosing Your BMW ActiveHybrid 3

The ActiveHybrid 3 comes as a rear-drive sedan with a hybrid power plant that's exclusive to this model. The turbocharged 3-liter six-cylinder and electric motor together produce 335 horsepower, 35 more than the regular six-cylinder 3 Series. An eight-speed automatic is the only transmission offered. Combined fuel economy comes in at 28 mpg, which may not sound too impressive for a hybrid, but you have to keep in mind that the ActiveHybrid 3 is the quickest model is the series, excluding the high-performance M3 variant of course. Increased power and efficiency are not mutually exclusive in this case. In fact, they move in lockstep.

You can adjust the character of your ActiveHybrid 3 with one of three optional design lines: Luxury, Sport and M Sport. Each gets its own wheel design, exterior styling tweaks and interior trim choices. The Sport and M Sport also get a firmer suspension and summer performance tires.

The ActiveHybrid 3 comes equipped like other six-cylinder 3 Series models, which means you get standard touches like adaptive xenon headlamps, a sunroof, LED accent lighting and 18-inch alloy wheels. The leatherette interior features power front seats with driver memory, wood trim and a split-folding rear seat. Other perks include automatic wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, Bluetooth phone and audio, and a nine-speaker sound system with HD radio.

  • The Premium package (standard on the Luxury line) adds genuine leather upholstery, keyless ignition, a hands-free power trunk lid, additional power seat adjustments and satellite radio.
  • With the Cold Weather package, you also get heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel and headlight washers.
  • A navigation system is the centerpiece of the Technology package, which also includes a color head-up display, numerous smartphone apps and remote vehicle controls. A 16-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system is available separately.
  • Turning to safety, the Driver Assistance package provides a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors.
  • The Driver Assistance Plus package augments that with a surround-view camera system, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and a front collision mitigation system. Adaptive cruise control and an automated parking system are standalone additions.
  • For a nimbler feel, you can order the Dynamic Handling package with an adaptive suspension and automatic variable-ratio steering.
CarsDirect Tip

The ActiveHybrid 3 feels incomplete without the Premium package, which makes the interior altogether more inviting. The Driver Assistance package seems rather essential too, if only to protect your investment from parking lot mishaps.
