Consumer Reports publishes their Top 10 Most Improved Car Redesigns. BMW’s design has been known for winning different design competitions and awards, so it comes as no surprise that the F30 BMW 3 Series Sedan is listed here.
According to the respectable magazine, the most successful recent redesign is the Chevrolet Impala, a sedan that gained 32 points compared to its predecessor. From the premium segment, the Audi A6 gets a nod also.
Here is what they say about the BMW 328i:
BMW 328i (77 to 86)
The BMW 3 Series has always been the quintessential sport sedan with agile, sporty handling and a smooth, quick, and refined powertrain. The redesign helped improve fuel economy to 28 mpg overall, and the rear seats picked up some breathing room
Launched with three new lines: the Sport, Modern, and Luxury line, BMW has created a 3 Series for all. he Luxury line is particularly well suited to the daily driver who values comfort over sport. While previous 3 series renditions delivered far more sport than luxury, the creation of a luxury line solves this problem for those in the market interested in buying a less sporty 3 Series.
