5 reasons to buy the 2020 BMW 330

1. Energetic powertrain

2020 BMW 330i Review:Engine | CarMax

If you're looking for a sporty sedan to help liven up your commute, you'll love the 2020 BMW 330's energetic performance. Anchoring the 2020 330 is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that generates 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive comes standard or you can opt for BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system for more precision on less-cooperative driving conditions. This luxury sedan is incredibly fast off the line, too, reaching 60 mph in an estimated 5.6 seconds with rear-wheel drive. A sharp-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission delivers smooth performance or you can use the standard steering wheel paddle shifters to feel more engaged with the road.

2. Luxurious interior features

The standard front sport seats are well-bolstered and supportive, plus they offer 14-way power adjustments, so it's easy to get comfortable. Supple leatherette upholstery comes standard in the 2020 330i, or you can choose rich Vernasca leather as an option. Up above, a standard two-way power glass moonroof fills the cabin with natural light and includes a sunshade with one-touch operation. If you're an audiophile, you'll love the crisp, clean sound that comes from the 10-speaker hi-fi sound system while you enjoy your playlists as you drive.

3. Plentiful space

With 17 cubic feet of trunk space, the 2020 330 has incredible cargo-carrying abilities for a sedan. It can swallow up three larger suitcases or easily carry your golf clubs for a day on the greens. The 2020 330i also includes standard 40/20/40-split fold-down rear seats to pack longer items, like skis or a snowboard.
