I don't know, they've arguably simplified it by ensuring that the numbers have no meaning anymore. Except that what the rest of the world calls a 330i, the US will call a 328i. For no reason.

Well, it gets worse than that actually. In the US the 320d is the 328d, but here we have a "lower" model (325d) with more power.

Car manufacturers haven't named cars within reason for years now. It's not anything new and honestly, it's only useful for us car folks.

The BMW 3 Series is not the benchmark for sports saloons anymore. The new benchmark is the Jaguar XE.

Unless you want a petrol engine and a manual gearbox.

Pump up the volume all the way to eleven.

Press play.


Then tell me this is not the last great petrolhead era before electricality takes over everything.

XE must be really good - even the German reviewers are admitting that XE has much better driving dynamics than 3-series or C-class.

Now bring on Giulia!
