BMW 3 Series

The 3 Series is one of our favourite saloons. And as it turns out, one of yours too. This 3 Series has brought plenty of new features to BMW's compact four-door with xDrive four-wheel drive now available - giving 3 Series owners an alternative to Audi's quattro models.

There is also a hybrid in the shape of the 330e which emits just 49g/km of CO2. However, the most popular model remains the 320d and it's easy to see why. It combines strong performance with good fuel economy making it a favourite among private buyers and company car drivers alike.

Sitting on plastic is something I thought I'd left behind me when I traded in my Mk.2 Cortina for the coke-bottle Mk.3 of the mid-70's. No more ill-fitting seat covers to stop "burnt-thigh", a feature of 60's travel in summer shorts. And the "new" "C" had no spare wheel either. I've has "C" class cars for more than a decade, but not this one, thank you!.

I've had C Class's for 20+ years and this is the best yet by far!!

Artico is NOT like plastic - anyway, options include cooled as well as heated seats.

Spare wheel not needed - you have to think like a Mercedes to deserve owning/driving one!!
Simply press the ' Mercedes me connect' overhead button and then just wait for a man to come
and sort you out!!
