2014 BMW 3 Series Sedan 335i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
This is one powerful car. If you have a lead foot like I, it may only be a matter of time before you are a bit carried away, and you find yourself with a ticket. I have only driven this car for about a month and I couldn't be more pleased. I waited over a year for any dealer to find a manual transmission! What a rare find...and the color is great, and the leg room is even better, and....and....and.....Such fun, especially for a wild and crazy ol' lady. I guess you get what you pay for.....! Thanks Edmunds for the gas card.

This car goes where you point it with the steering wheel. It also has three different transmission settings for you to choose from; Eco for the best gas consumption with a little less power, Comfort (the default) for a bit less rigid ride with a little more power than Eco, and Sport for driving the car like a BMW is supposed to be driven full power and absolutely no hesitation.
2014 BMW 3 Series Sedan 320i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Prior to my 2014 320i xDrive, I drove a Mini Countryman, a mini cooper, and a 2011 hyundai sonata.
This BMW is easily one of the best looking cars on the road. It is very quiet inside around town, with a comfortable ride. The transmission is excellent. Shifts are smooth and unintrusive. Turbo lag is absent. The controls are intuitive.
Steering is more similar to the Hyundai than MINI. It is VERY numb on center, though it firms up as you turn.
Brakes offer no feeling - like stepping on a cloud instead.
Highway wind noise is intrusive.
iDrive doesn't sync too well with my iPhone 6+ - it says "transferring data" instead of showing my contacts.
