Video review: Is the new 2012 BMW 335i still the ultimate driving machine?


The all new 2012 BMW 335i isn’t really all that new. Instead of a risky extreme makeover for their most popular model BMW continues to subtly refine the 3-series.

This latest and newest model has been stretched by 3.7 inches overall which can mainly be felt by those in the back seats with their knees.  Perhaps the most obvious change are the new headlights which now give the car a more determined and perhaps serious gaze at the road ahead.

Inside BMW also tweaked the dashboard with a more pronounced driver-oriented center console as well as a traditional parking brake instead of the electronic brake that are now all the rage in the industry.

The new 2012 BMW 335i is less than a hundred pounds heavier than the outgoing model. This means that performance has not changed very much since the stellar 3.0-liter inline-six carries over from the previous generation. With 300 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque the car has plenty of get up and go for most people.
