2012 BMW 335 Exterior

2012 BMW 335 Overview

BMW redesigned the entire 3-series for 2012, including the 2012 BMW 335.

Just like its little brother, the 328, the 335 receives new, customized styling cues that focus on individual style. However, the 2012 335 is not the beneficiary of a new engine. Competition to the 335 includes Infiniti G and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Many of you might be wondering what differentiates the 328 from the 335. Each entry model within a BMW Series will have the smaller engine, so naturally, the 335 is more powerful than the 328. The 328 received a new, more efficient engine, while the 335 stays the course with a 300-horsepower, 3.0-liter inline-six engine that generates 300 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The rear-wheel drive 335 sedan is available in an all-wheel-drive xDrive version for enhanced traction. For those who covet performance, an eight-speed Sport automatic transmission provides a more efficient shifting sequence and improved fuel economy. ECO PRO mode helps you drive more efficiently with fuel savings of up to 20 percent.

The new-look 2012 BMW 335 sedan has three distinct looks: Sport, Modern and Luxury. The Sport Line showcases agility and power and can be equipped with a sport suspension, increased top speed limiter, 19-inch alloy wheels and brushed aluminum trim, while the Modern Line incorporates a clean and natural look with sports leather steering wheel, highlight trim finishers pearl gloss chrome and Anthracite wood trim. The Luxury Line is all about sophistication for the most discerning tastes.

Advances in technology are just as much a part of the 2012 BMW 335 as comfort and luxury. The optional heads-up display projects important travel information like speed and navigation information so you don’t have to take your eyes off of the road. Tap into social media through your iPhone, which integrates your Facebook, Twitter and other websites into the center display. An optional 600-watt, 16-speaker Harmon Kardon surround sound system provides a high-quality listening experience, while a wide array of leather upholstery oozes refinement.

Antilock brakes, two-way headrests with active head restraints, programmable daytime running lights, impact sensor and suite of airbags that include knee airbags for the driver and front passenger are standard. A rearview camera, Park Distance Control, Speed Limit Info, Surround View, run-flat tires and Dynamic Stability Control are available safety features.

Appreciate high-end performance and luxury in the redesigned 2012 BMW 335 sedan.
