About the BMW 340
If you're shopping for a peppy car that also happens to be loaded with luxurious features, the BMW 3 Series sedan may be worth a look. This compact luxury sport sedan debuted its seventh generation for the 2019 model year and offers a number of powerful engine options, as well as optional all-wheel drive and other indulgent equipment.
Specifically, its 340i trims have been offered since the sixth generation (2012-2018), where they debuted for the 2016 model year after replacing the 335i. Boasting a brawny turbocharged engine and features like heated front seats and a premium 16-speaker sound system on the 2018 model, there's a lot to love about this little sports car.
