Exceeds Performance Expectations!

by c.robin0001 from Purcellville, VA | December 24, 2019

The 340i in RWD with MPPSK is an enjoyable vehicle with ample performance to satisfy the expectations of most experienced drivers.I have owned this vehicle for 34 months and still find the drive exciting. BMW definitely underrated the power of the vehicle, which is a good thing for enthusiastic drivers! I would recommend adding the Dinan suspension kit for improved cornering confidence and minimizing wheel gap. Seat comfort is fantastic on long drives and the steering wheel is one of the best in the auto industry. Of course comfort will depend on body composition and height. At 73.5 inches and 194lbs., I'm able to sit behind my driving position for extended periods in relative comfort. Another advantage of the 340i is the ability to park in tight spaces vs. the 5 series. Overall, I would rate the car an "A" for its performance, fuel economy, and versatility. Looking forward to driving the next M3 with the S58 engine!

The BMW 340i xDrive is an awesome "Driver's Car." It's packed with performance features, luxury appointments, and is a pleasure to drive. This 3-Series 340i xDrive has more room and features than it's predecessors and is such a pleasure to drive! You'll love it!

2017 BMW 340 Overview

BMW's compact 3 Series is the luxury automaker's bread-and-butter model and best-selling line. It's available as a sedan, wagon or Gran Turismo hatchback and as the M3 performance sedan.  Numerous drivetrains are offered, including turbocharged gas four-cylinder engines (320i and 330i models); a turbo-diesel four-cylinder (328d); a turbo gas six-cylinder (340i); and a plug-in hybrid (330e). The five-seat 3 Series comes with rear- or all-wheel drive (designated xDrive) and competes with the Audi A4, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

New for 2017
A new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 248 horsepower replaces an engine of the same size that made 240 hp. The models that use it are now designated 330i instead of 328i. Wireless smartphone charging and a Wi-Fi hot spot are new options, and the M Sport package is now standard on the 340i.

Significant Standard Features

Significant Available Features
3 Series Gran Turismo
The 3 Series Gran Turismo is a four-door, coupelike hatchback version of BMW's compact luxury car. It's a larger car overall, measuring nearly 8 inches longer and more than 3 inches taller. The result is a roomier cabin, especially for backseat passengers, who get 2.8 inches of extra legroom. The front and rear seats are also positioned higher for easier entry and exit.

For 2017, new more powerful four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines result in new model designations: 330i and 340i. LED headlights are now standard, and wireless smartphone charging and a Wi-Fi hot spot are now available.

What's Special
The BMW 330e compact sedan is a plug-in hybrid that combines a 180-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a 76-hp electric motor. A lithium-ion battery gives the 330e an EPA-estimated electric-only range of up to 14 miles before the gas engine takes over. Unlike many hybrids, the 330e uses an eight-speed automatic transmission instead of a continuously variable automatic.

What's Special
The M3 is a high-performance version of the 3 Series sedan. It's powered by a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that's rated at 425 hp in base form. For 2017, the adaptive M Suspension is now standard.
