BMW slightly revised front and rear fascias for 2016. Headlights and taillights now have a more distinctive signature when illuminated, air intakes are wider, and bumpers have been reshaped. The overall effect is aggressive, but handsome.

There's also the 2016 3-Series Gran Turismo, a five-door hatchback with significant dimensional differences: nearly 8 inches longer overall, about 4 inches longer in wheelbase, and about 3 inches taller. Frameless windows, a large hatchback, and a rear spoiler, along with the coupe-like profile, push this model in a new direction that appears as one third fastback, one third wagon, and one third crossover. While its shape and sheet metal are unique, it's still instantly recognizable as part of the 3-Series family.

The 3-Series can be equipped with many different trim lines and appearance packages, but try before you buy because they tend to make a greater difference inside and some combinations can be visually startling. The Sport Line, optional last year, is standard on the 328i, 328d, and 340i. There's also an M Sport package and—new this year—a Track Handling package notable for brakes with distinctive blue calipers.

The current 3-Series lineup offers several turbocharged engine choices. To start, there are two variants of a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4: it makes 180 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque in the entry-level 320i, while rising to 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque under the hood of a mid-range 328i. Horsepower dips to 180 with the four-cylinder turbodiesel in the 328d, but torque checks in at a healthy 280 lb-ft. Under the hood of the new range-topping 340i is an all-new turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 that produces 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. The 335i Gran Turismo retains last year's 300-hp six-cylinder engine.

In all variants of the 3-Series, you get the latest version of iDrive, which uses a controller on the center console to navigate menus for non-essential functions. It's much more intuitive than earlier versions of the system, and we don't see it as a deal-breaker, yet you'll want to spend some time getting a tutorial at the dealership. What we do like very much, however, is the capacitive touch pad atop the controller—a cool feature that allows you to trace out letters, for instance when specifying a destination.

We can't fault ride quality in nearly any 3-Series model. Sportier wheel and tire combinations may diminish the isolation you'd experience in a standard 328i with higher-profile tire, but not by much. And that's not something we could say about many 3-Series rivals, where the ride in performance-oriented competitors can get downright harsh. Likewise, though road noise is evident on coarser surfaces, the BMW's cabin stays much quieter than many rivals.
