Bmw 335i tour­ing

FOR: Sharp han­dling, sur­pris­ing com­fort AGAINST: S4 is a bit quicker, hard to find one

Auto Express - - Buying Cars -

BMW has a rep­u­ta­tion for cars with driver ap­peal, but the pow­er­ful 335i is rather hard to come by.

Its tur­bocharged V6 de­liv­ers 302bhp – about the same as the Golf and less than the S4 – but it’s the smooth en­gine re­sponse that im­presses more. The han­dling is more in­volv­ing than the Audi’s, too, while ride com­fort and re­fine­ment are also su­pe­rior. We found a 335i Tour­ing M Sport from 2014 with 35,000 miles for £23,900. THE cabin of the 335i is no dif­fer­ent from any 3 Se­ries, so it’s easy to op­er­ate, comes with plenty of tech and is pretty well screwed to­gether. Rear space is de­cent, while the 495-litre boot is us­able for fam­i­lies. OUR lat­est Driver Power sur­vey saw the 3 Se­ries rank in 37th place, and given its pop­u­lar­ity it should prove re­li­able; a mere 7.6 per cent of driv­ers told us of faults. Again, make sure its ser­vice record is in­tact.
