BMW3 SERIES $56,100+
THE last revision of the E90 3 Series before its all-new replacement arrives. BMW needs its six-year-old stalwart to perform as Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class walks away with the segment’s sales. We’d be recommending the 320d Touring. Its punchy diesel makes the most of the Bimmer’s brilliant dynamics and the wagon shape is not only practical, but a better looker than the squat sedan.
