BMW F30 3 Series Makes Car and Driver's Top 10 List for 2013

The new 3 Series, the F30 is a true BMW from all points of view. Its job wasn't easy, having to keep up with the legacy left by the previous models, it had some pretty big shoes to fit.

For 22 years Car and Driver magazine (and not only them) kept the 3 Series BMW on the 10 best cars' list. That is impressive, considering not many other cars can say they managed to achieve this kind of a performance.

Even though some cars in the same class might be better at one thing or another, overall the F30 BMW 3 Series is the best in its class hands down. This is something we discovered for ourselves when we tested the F30 3 Series a year ago.

The new model is slightly bigger but that poses almost no penalty on the weight of the car, due to the new materials used in its construction. The engines have better fuel consumption and lower emissions while the performance has been increased.

All of these are overshadowed by the anticipation for the new M3, which will be released later this year.
