There is something special about BMW 325d which has kept people excited

Buyers prefer a car which performs well on different fronts and BMW 325d is true all-rounder with 58 mpg fuel average, punchy acceleration and great handling. Desired fuel average of the saloon makes BMW 325d Second hand engines popular too.

M Sport kit gives a car sporty look and inside you gets leather upholstery and suspension is lowered so you get a fine car for daily commuting and to cruise on motorway. It is a great honour for the saloons of this series that people have been purchasing them for the last four decades.

Six generations of 3 series have been released during all this period. There is something special about the car of the series which has kept people excited about them. Mercedes C-class, Audi A4, Lexus IS and Infinite Q50 are among rivals of cars of the series.

There is an option of six trims for every saloon of the series but M Sport trim does not allow you to select two base level engines as it is not an option for 316i and 316d. Among possible diesel options, BMW 325d is in the middle of the series but still returns high fuel average.

You can have 330d and 335d which also ensure intelligent fuel usage. Four wheel drive is standard for some models of the series but it is not for 325d. For all M Sport models, you get an array of features like front and rear sporty bumpers and large wheels either 18 inches or 19 inches.

Optional features are many but recommended are

Seats are supportive to keep you relaxed on long journeys but sport suspension is on the stiffer side. Climate control and parking sensors are other notable features of the package. People also like to change their car engines instead of buying a new car for another few years and reconditioned BMW 325d engines are always preferred for their output and smart fuel consumption.

It is one of the favourite executive cars for luxurious interior and amenities. Fun to drive element is the biggest attraction and for this, you must be thankful to handling, stability, steering and suspension. Interior layout keeps things simple for a person sitting on the driver’s seat.

List of features includes tire pressure sensors, front, side and curtain airbags, driver seat height adjustment, cruise control, front and rear electric windows and Bluetooth connectivity. Optional features are many but recommended are metallic paint exterior, media package which includes satellite navigation and last but not least auto gearbox which consists of eight speed transmissions.

BMW 325d with five doors offer seats to five passengers. Luggage room capacity is 495 litres so with five seats you get generous boot space. On the roof, you can carry up to 75 kg weight so you can carry the number of suitcases on the rooftop as well. The maximum speed of the car is 148 mph and it is quite good for this size of a saloon.

Reaching to 62 mph speed mark needs just less than seven seconds. The manual gearbox of six speed transmissions is standard but experts have already suggested auto transmissions for smooth speed acceleration. Euro 5 compliant engine has curbed carbon emission further so this engine gives off 129 gm/km.

Six cylinders ensure smoothness in every act

Power of engine is 224 hp and your car reach top output in no time so you would like to drive than simply ride. In fact, it has an engine of 330d which is the straight six-cylinder engine but tubed to produce less power. BMW 3 series supply and fit service not only offers 325d power unit but also other engines of the series too.

In detuned form, it has become smooth and flexible. Manual gearbox keeps you engaged in driving but shifting is effortless and does not hamper increase of speed. The maximum torque of the engine is 300lb ft and at low revs, you get the punch. Six cylinders ensure smoothness in every act and unlike four-cylinder unit, you find it velvety smooth.

At low speed, you find steering weighty which adds uneasiness to driving. At high speed, the same steering becomes a treat to manoeuvre the vehicle. Handling also gets better so you get a good driver’s car and it is more than anything else for a person going to occupy this seat.

Their replacement is also not heavy

Among competitors, Audi and BMW offer six cylinder engines with strong output but other competitors fall significantly short with four-cylinder units. Lexus gives you electric front seats, CD changer and eighteen inches alloy wheels as standard so it has edge over others.

Mercedes on other hand is best for low carbon emission and road tax so every competitor has its own advantages. Lexus bigger wheels make them expensive too and smaller wheels of other cars cost less. Their replacement is also not heavy on pockets.

Depreciation in price is greater for BMW 325d and least for Lexus but once you get accustomed to the character of this car you do not need to change it unless a new model with better specifications is offered. In fuel average 325d has dominated all its rivals and keep running cost low so for buyers the car has a lot of plus points to decide in favour.
