With BMW’s M designation and 30 years of on and off track accomplishments, the 2015 M3 is a mesmerizing combination of digital and mechanical performance. Available exclusively as a sedan, power comes from a twin turbocharged, 425 horsepower inline six-cylinder engine. Available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, the driver is offered a wide range of suspension, engine and transmission settings. Exterior updates for 2016 are full LED taillights and new color choices. Inside, the navigation and climate control software is more user friendly. This M3 blends style and cutting edge performance at an excellent value. Did we mention how fast this sedan is? The 30-50 mph takes only 1.9 seconds, a figure staunchly supportive of the M3’s claim to mid-range power. BMW has used 30 years of M3 development wisely, and has produced a useful sedan with looks to turn heads, speed to satisfy those who live for the passing lane and adaptable comfort for those who desire versatility.
