If you’re looking to treat yourself to a premium executive saloon, the BMW 3 Series is the best in the business, and has been for a wee while now.
Sporty, stylish and seductive, the 3 Series comes in an abundance of models, trims and a broad range of petrol, diesel, and hybrid engines.
The BMW 330e plug-in hybrid is the pick of the bunch if you’re looking for a company car. It may come in at £39, 275, (models start at around £33,000) but it’ll work out as the cheapest and most efficient model in the range once you take mpg, driving range and CO2 emissions into consideration.
The battery assisted engine has an all-electric driving range of 37 miles when fully charged. This helps the 330e produce a miniscule 37g/km Co2 emissions, which in turn, places the 330e in the lowest BIK bracket and paying a BIK rate of 16%. This is soon to be 2% at the beginning of the new tax year on April 6 2020 so there’s no better opportunity to get your hands on a prestigious BMW company car.
With 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, there’s no signs of lax in terms of performance. Suspension is first-class, steering is sharp and engine noise is non-existent while running on electric power alone.
