In 2006, the BMW 3 Series sedans underwent a full revision, giving birth to their fifth generation, also known as the E90 platform. The 325i's wheelbase has stretched 1.4 inches, and the body is now 2.2 inches longer and 3 inches wider, with a 25% stiffer body shell. This adds up to more interior leg, head, and cargo space as well as better handling.
The 325i also has a new powertrain. The heart of this new BMW is a 3.0-liter, 24-valve DOHC inline six with variable valve timing that produces 215 hp using the first mass-produced magnesium-alloy engine block. A new six-speed manual is standard, with a six-speed automatic optional. Consumer Guide testers achieved a 7.2-second 0-60 time with the six-speed automatic, while Car and Driver blazed a 6.1-second jump with the six-speed manual. Fuel economy reflects the high-tech nature of the new engine, with Car and Driver recording 31 mpg on a 300-mile highway trip, cruising at 70-80 mph, with an overall 25 mpg. The 325i is rated at 20/30 mpg.
Despite the fifth generation's increase in size, Car and Driver recorded an increase of only 48 pounds over the previous-generation 325i. A lot of weight savings came from the engine castings and the extensive use of aluminum in the new suspension setup - up front, double-pivot aluminum control arms and in the rear, a five-link, fully independent suspension. Pushed to the limit, Car and Driver found a little more understeer than the previous generation offered, but also found the new car retains "characteristic BMW neutrality" thanks to a 49.9/50.1 front/rear weight distribution, which helps it generate 0.87g on the skidpad.
Steering also achieves the BMW benchmark for feedback and precision, though reviewers uniformly gave a thumbs down to BMW's new optional Active Steering system. The fifth-generation BMW 3 Series vehicles come standard with an upgraded and innovative stability control system (DSC) that incorporates ABS with rain brake support, which automatically wipes brakes dry in rainy conditions; brake standby, which sets the brake pads closer to the rotors and builds up brake pressure when the driver abruptly lifts his foot off the accelerator, anticipating an emergency move; brake-fade compensation, which increases line pressure when the brakes heat up; and with the manual transmission, hill-start assist, which keeps the car from rolling on hill starts. The stability control system can be turned off, but not the ABS system.
The new interior has more room, upgraded materials, and the traditional 3 Series' great front seats and seating position. With its extra room, the 325i is comfortable for four adults, with the middle back seat best for children. The trunk has more space and easier access than the last generation's, but fold-down rear seats that extend the cargo space are still an option.
If you're in the market for a sports car with sedan capabilities, the fifth-generation 3 Series ups its previous benchmark for this category.

In 2006, the BMW 3 Series sedans and wagon underwent a full revision, giving birth to their fifth generation, also known as the E90 platform. The Sport Wagon is an elegant addition to the 3 Series for those who want more cargo space than the sedan affords, but don't want to give up BMW's traditional "ultimate driving machine" fun.
The engine is the heart of every BMW, and the '06 325xi features a 3.0-liter DOHC 24-valve, inline six with variable valve timing that produces 215 hp using the first mass-produced magnesium-alloy engine block. A new six-speed manual is standard, with a six-speed automatic optional. Driving an automatic, an Auto Channel tester achieved a 7.9-second jump from 0 to 60. The folks at Car and Driver managed 7 seconds with the manual transmission. While the EPA rates the Wagon at 20/27 mpg city/highway, two reviewers saw 19-20 mpg, while a third got 24 mpg.
With the Sport Wagon, Car and Driver recorded a 273-pound weight increase over the 330i sedan. A lot of weight savings came from both the engine castings and the extensive use of aluminum in the new suspension setup. But the Wagon has the added weight of BMW's excellent xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which is used in the X3 and X5 SUVs. xDrive electronically controls a multi-disc central clutch that starts with a 40/60 front/rear torque split and integrates the Dynamic Stability Control system to quickly adjust torque and traction front, rear, and laterally. Reviewers report seamless, transparent functioning that results in "pure sports car handling."
The four-seat Sport Wagon doesn't provide that much space, with 107 cubic feet of interior space (compared to 121 in a PT Cruiser) and only 16 cubic feet behind the rear seats. But buyers will get 0.80g of cornering grip and the great handling prowess of any 3 Series sedan.
The upgraded and innovative stability control system (DSC) incorporates ABS with rain brake support, which automatically wipes brakes dry in rainy conditions; brake standby, which sets the brake pads closer to the rotors and builds up brake pressure when the driver abruptly lifts his foot off the accelerator, anticipating an emergency move; brake-fade compensation, which increases line pressure when the brakes heat up; and, with the manual transmission, hill-start assist, which keeps the car from rolling on hill starts. The stability control system can be turned off, but not the ABS system.
The interior has more room, upgraded materials, and the traditional 3 Series' great front seats and seating position. Rear cargo loading won praise for its flexibility, with the whole hatch lid or only the hinged rear glass offering access. A panoramic moonroof that reaches backward to provide light and view for rear passengers is standard, as are rain-sensing windshield wipers.
If you're in the market for a sports car with a little more cargo space than a sedan, the fifth-generation 3 Series Sports Wagon will keep you smiling in all weather.

In 2006, the BMW 3 Series sedans underwent a full revision giving birth to the 5th generation (E90). There is more car to appreciate with the 325i wheelbase stretched 1.4 inches and the body length 2.2 inches longer and 3 inches wider with a 25% stiffer body shell. This adds up to more interior leg, head, and cargo space with better handling.
There is also a new power train. A 3.0-liter dohc 24 valve, inline six with variable valve timing produces 255 hp encased in the first mass produced magnesium alloy engine block. A new six-speed manual is standard with a six-speed automatic and a six-speed sequential-manual(SMG) as transmission options. The 0-60 jump estimates are in the low-6 second bracket with manual transmission.
Even with the increase size and all-wheel drive system, a lot of weight savings come from both the engine castings and the extensive use of aluminum in the new suspension setup - up front, double-pivot aluminum control arms and in the rear, a five-link fully independent suspension. BMW's excellent xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which is used in the X3 and X5 SUVs, flows power through all four wheels. The system electronically controls a multi-disc central clutch that starts with a 40/60 front/rear torque split and integrates the Dynamic Stability Control system to quickly adjust torque and traction front, rear, and laterally.
Steering also retains the BMW class benchmark for feedback and precision, though reviewers uniformly gave thumbs down to BMW's new optional Active Steering system. The 5th gen BMW 3 Series come standard with an upgraded and innovative stability control system (DSC) that incorporates ABS with rain brake support which automatically wipes brakes dry in rainy conditions; brake standby, which sets the brake pads closer to the rotors and builds up brake pressure when the driver abruptly lifts his foot off the accelerator anticipating an emergency move; brake fade compensation which increases line pressure when the brakes heat up; and with the manual transmission, hill-start assist which keeps the car from rolling on hill starts. The stability control system can be turned off, but not the ABS system.
The interior has more room, upgraded materials, and power front seats. With the extra room, the 330xi is comfortable for four adults with the middle back seat best for children. The trunk has more space and easier access, but fold down rear seats which extend the cargo space are still an option.
If you are in the market for a sport car with all-weather sedan capabilities, the 5th generation 3-Series xi ups its previous bench mark for this category.
