2013 BMW 3 Series 328i Sedan Exterior

The 2013 BMW 3 Series is a perfect combination of the next-generation sedan that debuted last year.  It is easy to see how both benefit from now-standard power front seats and a new M Sport equipment line, while “xDrive” all-wheel drive makes its return to the lineup.   For 2013,  the ActiveHybrid3 makes its debut, offering 28 mpg combined and an attractive price.

Last year it was an important day when the new BMW 3 series was introduced at Peterson BMW of Boise.  The only drawback is that the redesign was only on the 328i and 335i sedan.  This year for 2013,   the BMW 3 series wagon gets the same changes.   For the new generation wagon it is larger but weighs less.  The steering is now electronically assisted in order to improve fuel efficiency.  The recently introduced BMW models, the 3 Series sedan and wagon get Driving Dynamics Control, which allows the driver to select among four modes that alter throttle response, steering effort and shift patterns of the automatic transmission.
