The BMW 3 Series is by far one of the most popular choices in the luxury sedan segment, and with the entry level 3 Series - the 320i - BMW has made it possible for more people to experience top-class luxury and quality.

Our used test car for this week was a 2006 model BMW 320i automatic. With 56000km on the clock for an almost two-year-old vehicle, this car is still in supreme condition.

The interior is clean and neat, with black leather seats. The same goes for the rest of the interior.

The general layout of the interior speaks of simplicity and is very easy to operate from a driver's point of view.

Legroom and overall space in the cabin is above average. All materials used are of good quality and the car has solid build quality.

The lines and overall shape of the 320i is what makes this car one of the best-looking in this segment. The relatively low roof line and aggressive contemporary looking front, makes people still love the 3 Series. The exterior doesn't show any damage.

One of the best attributes of this car is its power plant. This might not be the fastest of all the 3 Series siblings, but there is more than enough power to ensure that you drive in the utmost comfort and luxury.

The 2,0-litre petrol engine makes driving a pleasurable experience. It delivers 110kW of power and 200Nm of torque, which gets transferred to the rear wheels via a fast six-speed automatic transmission. This results in a 0-100kmh sprint of around 10 seconds and a top speed in the area of 200kmh.

The 320i comes with a multi-functional steering wheel that will keep your hands on the steering when, for example, turning down the radio volume.
