BMW 3 Series Saloon

Starting from £25,160

The new BMW 3 Series Saloon remains every inch the driver’s car with its driver-oriented cockpit, rear-wheel-drive dynamics and flowing lines running from bonnet to boot.
The latest model BMW 3 Series Saloon holds true to all that has come before, with its chrome and high gloss finishes exuding pure elegance, and its striking features giving it a broad, sporty presence. 


The new, perfectly-proportioned BMW 3 Series Saloon is unmistakable despite numerous changes to its iconic design which give it an irresistibly sporty, modern appearance. The characteristic short front overhang, elongated bonnet and long wheelbase are accentuated by a roofline that sweeps towards a smoothly sloping boot. The result is a coupé-like silhouette that gives an impression of movement, even when standing still. 

The front of the car features striking optional LED headlights, which, using adaptive technology, automatically adjust illumination to specific driving conditions. This LED package also includes cornering lights, which anticipate bends by turning before the car, allowing optimal safety at crucial moments. Additionally, LED fog lights (halogen standard) sit below the headlights, adding to the car’s agile look and casting a light extremely similar to daylight in murky conditions. 

The remodelled front bumper sits in perfect harmony with the intricately-designed air inlets in the front apron, emphasising the car’s broad stance. From the rear, the new bumper continues the dynamic shape, while the L-shaped LED lights (as standard) are set wide apart, ensuring a distinctive look even when the sun goes down. 

Wider exhausts, new athletic rim designs and a fresh choice of colours (such as Mediterranean Blue, which particularly accentuates the ‘Sport’ model’s key features) round off the powerful look of the world’s most distinctive sports saloon. 


Inside the new BMW 3 Series Saloon, the characteristic driver-oriented cockpit gives you more control than ever, placing every innovation easily and intuitively within reach. The driver experience is enhanced by a wealth of high-quality materials - seats feature new optional materials and stitching, while the centre console (including the climate control, air vents and radio) is finished with chrome and high gloss black highlights. 

The trim is a refined ash black wood (or an optional high gloss black), and an extended trim finisher runs into all doors front and back, just above the subtly extended ambient lighting, which also continues along the centre of the dashboard. 

The freestanding Control Display now has a slim, 6.5-inch high resolution screen with navigation as standard, and boasts a faster, more intuitive user experience. Spaciousness is another key feature, with the flexibility to handle everyday practicalities, and numerous storage compartments to ensure the interior stays uncluttered, however busy your life.

Special Features

BMW Navigation Package

The BMW Navigation Package is now standard with every model of the new BMW 3 Series Saloon, providing the following features for the ultimate in innovative connectivity: BMW Navigation, BMW Emergency Call and BMW TeleServices. 

BMW ConnectedDrive 

The new BMW 3 Series Saloon also features BMW ConnectedDrive Services as standard, intelligently linking vehicle, driver and the outside world. It makes sure you’re always connected so you can further enhance your experience with the choice of: 4G capability for navigation, active cruise control, automatic map updates. 

Automatic Boot Opening

Acess the boot when your hands are full, the innovative comfort access system allows you to open it without even touching it. The system will cleverly sense that the car key is present, after which a quick wave of your foot under the bumper will activate a sensor that pops it open. 

Head-Up Display

When sitting in the cockpit, all the information you need will be right in front of you, thanks to the BMW Head-Up Display. Included as part of the Professional Plus media package, or as an option in its own right, it projects data onto the windscreen in high resolution and full colour, with the projection appearing as if it were approximately 2.3m in front of the car. This allows it to be read quickly and easily, with minimal distraction. 

Information displayed includes your current speed (and depending on equipment) navigation instructions, speed limit information, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems. And because the BMW driving experience is tailored to you, you will only see information that you choose to see. 


Intelligent systems for easier parking are available as an option with the new BMW 3 Series Saloon. For example, Park Assist makes parking parallel and perpendicular to the road into a hassle-free experience. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces – even tight parallel parking spaces – while driving past at a low speed (below 21 mph) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars. When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and Park Assist takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. 

Driver Assist

The Drive Assist package spots danger before it’s too late. Lane Departure Warning, for example, detects lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change (ie when the indicator has not been activated) at speeds above approx. 43 mph. 

Additionally, If a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, the BMW 3 Series Approach Control Warning is immediately activated – flashing a symbol at first, before emitting a warning sound and finally lightly applying the brakes (when travelling at speeds under 37 mph). 

The Person Warning operates in a similar way, warning of a potential collision with a pedestrian at speeds between 6 and 37 mph by emitting a warning and pre-conditioning the brakes for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system actually applies the brakes. (This function can be limited by darkness and fog). 

Customer Feedback

Today March 7th 2019 I collected my new (used)car, I dealt with Danny Greaves who was excellent from our first meeting last week to discuss my requirements re the car ie new mats protection x polish full of fuel etc, when I arrived the car was looking splendid in the show room all polished just like new. We sat down and enjoyed a couple of cups of coffee and chatted before Danny explained the service plan and all the other things I needed to know, thouroughly proffessional when needed to be but very friendly at all times. Very happy customer and will keep in touch with Danny.
