BMW 3-series Named to C&D "10 Best Cars" for 21st Consecutive Time

BMW 3-series / M3 - The 3 is still The One

The competition should have figured out a way to beat the BMW 3-series by now. Itís not for lack of trying: Every so often, another carmaker will pitch a worthy competitor into the mix, but none has been able to knock the 3-series from its pedestal or even maintain its consistent brilliance. After 21 consecutive years on the 10Best list, BMW continues to evolve the 3-series toward some platonic ideal of sportiness. You donít notice the seats, the steering, the suspension, or the brakes because everything feels natural. Everything feels right. And how has no other automaker matched the silkiness of BMWís inline-six engines? Donít forget the M3, either, which remains magnificent in the twilight of a celebrated life, thanks largely to that lusty 414-hp, 8300-rpm V-8. The 3-series sedan is on hiatus until a new model drops in February. In other words, even as the entire current 3-series lineup is on the way out the door, it still roasts the competition. The biggest threat to its dominance is not from another carmaker but from BMW itself. An increased focus on gizmology has robbed a couple of recently introduced BMWs of the athletic, connected feeling that made the old Ultimate Driving Machine tag line ring so true. Hereís to hoping BMW doesnít screw up the best one.

The balance of an inline 6 is simply superior to any other platform. I wish more manufacturers would use it.

Test drive an Audi, Saab, VW, MINI, etc... You can get the power, but it rattles like a tin can full of rocks.

Not BMW.

N20 is absurdly perfect.
