There have been several cosmetic and performance improvements to the BMW 3 Series for 2009. The most noticeable design changes to the 3 Series sedans and sport wagons are the new headlight housings, the switch to LED tail lamps and turn signals, and the re-styled bumper and trunk.
But the real story with the 2009 3 Series is the diesel option. The 2009 BMW 3 Series will offer the 335d in the wagon and sedan models, featuring a 3.0-liter inline-6 cylinder diesel engine. This 6 cylinder engine produces 265 horsepower at 4,200 rpm and 425 lb-ft of torque at 1,750 rpm, powering the vehicle to 60 mph in only 6 seconds. Even with the sportiness of the car, you won’t be sacrificing fuel economy, averaging 23 mpg city and 33 mph highway. For the 3 Series coupe and convertible, get excited for the new 7-speed sport automatic transmission with double clutch.
