BMW ActiveHybrid 3 Foreign Test Report
Gradually, BMW adds hybrid options to its stable of vehicles. The ActiveHybrid 3 is the latest idea to attract a new kind of consumer. Dedicated to providing a range of more substantial to its distinguished clientele, the manufacturer BMW in 2013 added a hybrid variant of its popular 3 Series. Already, it can be equipped with a 4-cylinder turbo engine (320i, 320i xDrive , 328i, 328i xDrive), while the 335i Edition (also available with AWD) is responsible to satisfy purists 6-in-line. With the model ActiveHybrid 3 BMW aimed at those who want to save a few pennies at the pump without losing the charm of a traditional German sedan.Very little evidence
To watch, there is no doubt he is indeed a 3 Series. If several manufacturers are struggling to differentiate between “green” models of others, this is not really the case here. The clear blue metallic color would be a good indicator of the character of the sedan, but it is also available on the petrol versions.There are still these rims with a diameter of 18 inches that sell a little bit on the vocation of the sedan, while the C-pillar and the trunk badges “ActiveHybrid 3″ were deposited. Even the two exhaust pipes at the back confirms that there is indeed a mechanical fuel in this dress hybrid.Atmosphere “Modern”
Again, the atmosphere is the same as in all other 3 Series sedans, at least those marked “Modern” on the flanks. You obviously love the pale beige leather upholstery, a color that gets dirty quickly in winter. However, the designers of the brand darkened landscape with a pavilion roof black.

The materials used are finely crafted, while the design of the dashboard is inspired by the latest creations of the Bavarian manufacturer with flowing curves and a judicious mix of woods. Small problem: the entertainment system showed quite worrying signs, and twice during the week driving. Presumably, these two failures were due to the extreme heat wave that raged outside, the system returned to life after about twenty minutes of driving … air conditioning!Of course, the driving position is quickly because power seat, while the steering wheel is adjustable in height and depth. However sporting temperament will look to the M products if they want more enveloping seats, those of the 3 Series is correct without this level. As for the rear seats, it offers more space than the previous generation, but the most surprising element is the battery pack which does not obstruct the passage between the trunk and back seat. Congratulations!An efficient hybrid

At this level, it is rather a question of a bonus power. Indeed, the same engine 6-cylinder-in-line turbocharged 3.0-liter used in the 335i remains in place. An electric motor with an output of 50 horsepower is grafted to the whole, the latter being fed precisely by these housed between the rear wheel arches batteries.

The total combined power when the right foot is wanting more than 335 horsepower, while torque is also higher with 332 lb-ft. As for the transmission, the consumer has no choice but to opt for automatic eight-speed unit that makes a great job. Note however that this variant is only available in rear-wheel drive.

Bavarian behavior
We must salute the efforts of engineers BMW not have altered the dynamic behavior of the 3 Series with this hybrid version. Despite the fact that the car can run in electric mode in urban situation and that silence is welcome aboard the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is capable of covering the 0-100 km / h in 5.5 seconds, seven tenths more a version 335i only. Let’s just say the ActiveHybrid 3 is the heaviest of the range, which hampers a tad performance.

Despite this weakness
If it is one – the 3 Series retains a fairly straight direction while the suspension remains firm without being uncomfortable for most sinuous portions of our road network. Soundproofing is also one of the strengths of this luxury sedan, even at highway speeds. In addition, during braking and other delays, the electric motor takes over to charge the batteries, which further improves the silence on board.

Conclusion
With the arrival of the 328D, BMW will have everything it takes to please the amateur model. In the meantime another frugal variant, the ActiveHybrid 3 is a good option to consider, consumption recorded during these few days of testing is 7.9 L/100 km with a more normal driving. Now you need to determine if the base price of $ 58,300 is justified to make the acquisition.
