This is usually implemented to prevent damage to the power source. Archived from on 27 June 2013. The interior layout is a cohesive design that was missing from prior generations of the 3-Series. But beware; dip into the options list for the 3-Series and you can raise the price by many thousands.
In addition to that, you get a suspension that's firmer than any of the other models can manage in Sport mode, as well as bigger brakes, and other enhancements. The next step up and it's a worthwhile one, if you ask us is the 328i which makes 240 hp and 255 lb-ft from the same turbo-4. The steering is lighter than previous models, but stiffens with speed. The last refresh of the 7-Series, two years ago, brought a new front fascia that adds more interest below--with a long, horizontal lower intake that runs across the nose of the vehicle. The engines are mated to either a six-speed automatic transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission. An official public reveal took place at the 2015 International Motor Show Germany.
