It#8217;s not very often that a smaller vehicle is a company#8217;s flagship, but we don#8217;t care what BMW might tell you about the 7 Series. the 3 Series is the automaker#8217;s top dog. Its styling has always worked and never been vulgar like some other models in the BMW lineup. Additionally, it#8217;s won more awards from the automotive press than the Los Angeles Lakers have NBA titles.

Believe it or not, the 3 Series has been around since 1975, but it really came into its own in 1992, when it won the first of 19 straight Car and Driver 10 Best awards. In 2006, it won the World Car of the Year and also the What Car? Car of the Year awards.

Under the hood, the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six won the International Engine of the Year Award for 2007.

To keep up with this impressive tradition, the sixth generation 3 Series unveiled at BMW#8217;s plant in Munich has been built as a revolution and not as an evolution. The new model sets new benchmarks in terms of sporting prowess, elegance, and comfort, and has grown significantly in size compared to its predecessor.

Update 06/28/2013: This review has been updated to include the 2013 model year.

Compared to its predecessor, the new 3 Series has grown in all dimensions, but still retains a perfect balance of sportiness and elegance. People will immediately recognize the new 3 Series, thanks to its sweeping bonnet, short front overhang, long wheelbase and set-back greenhouse typical of BMW.

According to BMW, the new 3 Series will be sportier than ever. For that, it has received a wide, squat interpretation of the upright, slightly forward-slanting BMW kidney grille and LED accent lights positioned like eyebrows above the striking twin to-the-grille headlights. The two larger intakes will replace the central air intake of its predecessor, while extra small vertical intakes positioned on the far left and right of the main ducts will help create the Air Curtain.

On the side, BMW has opted for powerfully taut surfaces with sweeping lines for a more dynamic stance. Alongside the C-Pillar runs a fine contour line from the roof into the boot lid, giving the roof an even lower appearance from the side.

Finally, the rear gets news rear lights in customary BMW L-shaped design positioned at the outer edges of the back end and, of course, the two lines below the rear spoiler and above the bumper, which frame the rear stylistically.
