BMW 3 Series 320d - Best diesels

BMW returned to form with the latest 3 Series by shedding weight, improving driving dynamics and adding an impressive array of technology

The 320d will be a popular choice within the 3 Series range as the 187bhp unit possess genuine performance.

The 3 Series has also lost up to 55kg, which not only helps it return to the top of the class for handling but improves fuel economy. The 320d can achieve 53.3mpg on a combined cycle and while that may not sound particularly impressive, it has undergone the stricter WLTP tests so those figures are more similar to what you’ll see in real world driving.

The previous generation 3 Series was a strong competitor in the compact executive saloon sector but the Mercedes C-Class was more refined and the Jaguar XE better to drive. The new car however, has gone straight to the top of the class.
