Now known as the 340i, the six-cylinder model in BMW's compact 3 Series delivers significantly more power and standard features than expected in its class. Its four-cylinder siblings earn the lion's share of sales, but that just makes the 340i seem all the more exclusive.

2016 BMW 340 Overview
What's New for 2016
A more powerful engine facilitates a name change from 335i to 340i. Several of last year's major options are now standard, as is Sport Line (i.e. gloss black) exterior trim. Like the rest of the 3 Series, the 340i also gets mild suspension and styling updates.
Choosing Your BMW 340i
The 340i's turbocharged 3-liter six-cylinder engine produces 320 horsepower, 20 more than last's year unit. As before, an eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard, and you can opt for a six-speed manual at no cost. The automatic is required, however, with the available xDrive all-wheel drive system.
The 340i start out with premium features like full LED headlamps, a sunroof, power sport seats with driver memory settings, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, a hands-free power trunk lid, and keyless ignition and access. The 340i rides on 18-inch wheels with 19s optional.
- The Luxury package adds leather upholstery, wood or aluminum interior trim, a saddle brown lower dash (instead of black), and non-sport seats if desired.
- You can take the 340i in another direction with the M Sport package, which provides a sport-tuned suspension, specific wheels, aerodynamic body trim, and a sport steering wheel.
- The Track Handling package (available with or without the full M Sport treatment) contributes upgraded brakes, sport-tuned steering, and an adaptive suspension system.
- A navigation system comes with the Technology package, which also adds a larger display screen and a suite of integrated smartphone apps.
- The Cold Weather package adds heated seats all around and a heated steering wheel.
- There is also a Lighting package with adaptive headlamps and automatic high beams.
- Safety gets a boost from the Driver Assistance package with a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. A Plus version of the same adds blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, a surround-view camera system, and speed limit data.
Adaptive cruise is a standalone option, as are an automated parallel parking system and a rear power sunshade.
More so than other 3 Series sedans, the 340i is lavishly equipped from the start. Other than leather upholstery, we don't consider any of the options to be exactly essential. That said, we wouldn't want to be without the rearview camera and parking sensors found in the Driver Assistance package when parking a car of this price.
