"The 5th generation 3 series with a powered-up inline-6 that incorporates the Valvetronic system."
Upon entering the 21st century, BMW released a dizzying array of new models like the 5 series, 6 series, Z4, X3 and 1 series. Their flagship model for 2005 was the 5th-generation 3 series.
The 5th generation model is called the E90 series, whereas the old model was the E46. The same design features pioneered by Chris Bangle in the new 7 series are present in this 3 series, and the dynamic surfaces and sharp visage of the headlights call to mind a bird of prey. This look has become an identifying trait of the 5th generation 3 series.
The body was mde one size larger than the E46 in order to more clearly distinguish it from its sister model, the 1 series, which had already been released. At 177.9 inches long, 71.5 inches wide and with a wheelbase of 108.6 inches, its dimensions are comparable to those of the old 5 series.
The engine is available in a variety of displacement sizes, but the biggest feature of note is the long-awaited move to Valvetronic timing in the straight-6. The 3-liter version of this was offered one step ahead in the 6 series. The new maximum output of 254 HP represents a more than 10% increase over the 227 HP of the original 3-liter.
The same cutting-edge suspension used by the 1 series is carried over, with double-joint struts in the front and a newly designed multilink set-up in the rear. With its good front-rear weight distribution, sportiness and ride comfort has been improved even further. And the car's handling in extreme conditions is as superb as always.
The 3 series is a real contender in the European mid-size sedan segment where cars like the Mercedes C Class, Audi A4 and Alfa Romeo 159 strive for dominance.
