Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Good view of the road ahead.Front seats are comfortable and the driving position adjusts to fit all and feels suitably sporting too. The 3-Series Coupe feels special from behind the wheel. Materials are of a high quality adding to the impression it's special.

The coupe is a five-seater on the spec sheet, but in reality the two rear seats are only suitable for a couple of children. However, getting in and out of the back is easy enough. Ride is firm on the sportier models but noise levels are well supressed. Quality materials used throughout. Fair to say it's a cut above the average.
