Engines and the Drive
There are a huge selection of engine options available on the BMW 3 Series Touring. When it comes to diesels, there’s the 318d, 320d, 330d and M340d. If you’re after a Petrol, it’s either the 318i, 320i, 330i or 340i xDrive. There is also a Plug-in Hybrid in the 330e. However within this, there is a whole myriad of different variants that would take us the whole review to go through!
We drove the 320d, which is a 2-litre diesel that offers 190 horsepower and will go from 0-62 in just north of 7 seconds. The 320d also offers a claimed combined MPG of 53.3-56.5, and feels very at home cruising leisurely along the motorway.
There’s also that synonymous BMW steering: heavy but controlled and with an impressive amount of grip that allows you to really take corners well. This car feels like it’s not about to budge anytime soon. It’s certainly not the quickest of engines, but it has just the right amount of power for the everyday driver and if you do choose to put your foot down there’s more than enough oomph to get you going.
