2018 BMW 3 Series Combines Best of Both Gas and Electric Power with New Powertrain Option

The 2018 BMW 3 Series continues to use a now age-old formula to set the standard for great sport sedans: front engine, rear-wheel drive, tuned chassis, and accessible power. However, rather than resting on its laurels, BMW has chosen to continue moving forward with its ever-popular sport sedan. Now, a dynamic new powertrain option is modernizing performance in the 3 Series.

Choose the new 2018 330e iPerformance and you'll get a powertrain that brings together a conventional gasoline internal combustion engine with a torquey electric motor. The performance benefits of this pairing are substantial. Together, the two make a combined output of 248 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. That's sufficient power to take the 330e iPerformance from zero to 60 mph in less than six seconds. This engaging performance is achieved while also offering an EPA estimated 71 MPGe.

That's not all the new 3 Series offers, though. A range of engine options help drivers pick a setup that's ideal for their driving needs. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine offers balanced power and efficiency, while the available inline-six engine offers 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The available diesel engine offers a meaty 280 pound-feet of torque at just 1,750 rpm.
