2013 BMW M3 Convertible

2013 BMW M3 Review

(4 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Comparable in performance to an exotic sports car, the 2013 BMW M3 comes with lots of practical features including good visibility out of the cabin and a roomy interior. With a faster acceleration rate and enhanced styling, the M3 stands out from the regular 3-Series offerings and boasts a competitive list of excellent standard comforts and great optional additions. The M3 is equipped with a host of different parts that distance it from other vehicles in the 3-Series line. This muscular-looking vehicle offers all the appeal of a high-performance sports car with all the practicality one needs for everyday use, competent at both highway speeds and in city traffic. While it comes in at a higher price than other 3-Series vehicles, the BMW M3 delivers all the class and performance one would expect from its price premium.
