BMW has expanded its line-up of models in the UK, with the introduction of the ActiveHybrid, four-wheel-drive xDrive and M Sport versions of the 3 Series.
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is powered by the 302bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine from the 335i and a 54bhp electric motor. Together they propel it from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds.
It can return average fuel economy of 47.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 139g/km, thanks to the electric motor and the fact the hybrid 3 Series can travel for up to 2.5 miles on battery power alone.
The 320i xDrive becomes the first 3 Series model in the UK to get four-wheel drive, and is powered by a 181bhp 2.0-litre turbo. Priced at £27,400, it costs £1,535 more than an equivalent rear-wheel-drive model.
M Sport variants are introduced along side a new 330d model, which is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine with 255bhp.
The M Sport package costs £3,000 more than the SE model, while standard kit includes 18-inch alloys, M Sport suspension, leather upholstery and an M Sport steering wheel.
