TopGear.com drives the new BMW 3-series, declares it the best car in its class. Still.

If this needs to be communicated briefly, via Twitter or somesuch,  just tell them it’s the best car in its class. Still. Because it is. If  you want to go into much depth, begin with increased dimensions (93mm  longer, 9mm taller etc) and go on to discuss how the new lower nose  design has improved both aerodynamics (0.26Cd for the most air-cheating  models) and pedestrian safety.
Of course it’s not a revolutionary leap forward. This is a mainstream  car that sells in massive numbers - when it goes on sale in the UK next  February it needs to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. We  can’t see it alienating many. With the exception of the pointier front  end the exterior is entirely fine. Nothing radical, just a good freshen  up. Same indoors, too. BMW has been bolder with materials, folding them  into more interesting shapes, yet the ergonomics are excellent and the  quality and design is fully up to scratch.

If you’re seriously considering this car, do yourself a favor and read the rest at TopGear.com
