BMW 3 Series (F30) featured here is the sixth generation, with facelift, and xDrive all-wheel drive system. Along with this minor restyling the BMW 3 Series premium sedan got a new engine/power nomenclature, but here we have the popular diesel version, the 320d.  The biggest change for the facelift comes with the basic petrol engine, 318i, that is now a 3-cylinder 1-5 litre engine – the first time a BMW 3 Series gets a 3-cylinder engine. The facelift for the BMW 3 Series was presented in 2015, 40 years after the launch of the first generation. More than 14 million BMW 3 Series were sold in these four decades. The car featured here is new, with less than 10,000 km on the clock.
