Used Car: 2011 BMW 3-Series Wagon Review

Review Last Updated: 4/10/13

The 2011 BMW 3-Series Wagon may not be as roomy as others in its class, but reviewers said it provides the same dynamic handling as its sedan counterpart.

The 2011 BMW 3-Series Wagon is ranked:

Reviewers said the 2011 BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon’s athletic handling, powerful braking and  overall comfortable ride make it one of the top picks in its class. The 3-Series Wagon comes with a six-cylinder engine that can be paired with a manual or an available automatic transmission. Reviewers said the automatic transmission is slow to downshift, but the manual is well-matched to the six-cylinder engine. With the automatic transmission and the base engine, the 3-Series Wagon does not get very impressive 18/27 mpg fuel economy, and the manual transmission is slightly worse. Rear-wheel drive is standard and an all-wheel drive system was available when it was new. Test drivers recommended all-wheel drive models for those who live in snowy climates.   

Auto writers liked the interior of the 3-Series Sports Wagon, which features standard leatherette upholstery and wood or aluminum trim. However, other wagons in the class offer roomier interiors. With all seats in use, the 3-Series Wagon has 25 cubic feet of cargo space, which is middle-of-the-road in its class. For example, the 2011 Audi A6 Wagon has about 34 cubic feet with all seats in use. Rain-sensing wipers, heated mirrors and HD Radio are some of the standard features on the 2011 BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon. Optional features when it was new included heated front seats, a navigation system, BMW’s iDrive multi-media interface system and satellite radio.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2011 A4 Avant has a little more cargo space, and it uses less fuel than the 3-Series Sport Wagon. It also comes standard with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive.

The 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon has a lot of standard technology features and an exceptional safety score. Reviewers called the TSX Sport Wagon’s performance responsive and peppy.
