In 1986, every 3-series BMW that came out of factory denoted with “e,” was the slowest and most fuel-efficient version. Today, BMW is still using “e” denotation for its 3-series. However, apart from being fuel-efficient, everything else has changed. Today, “e” stands for the plug-in-hybrid powertrain. With its torque converter cut off, the BMW 330e iPerformance marries 8-speed automatic transmission to the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Instead of a torque converter, you’ll find an electric motor/generator that produces 87 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque. Overall, this powertrain contains 248 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. At a 240-volt station, it takes around 2.5 hours to charge.
Safety features of 330e are excellent. Among them, you can find a GPS-connected transmission that preemptively shifts for corners. The 330e’s programs scan the entire route to determine road conditions for optimal driving. Then it accounts for traffic and plans on how to use its dual source of power for your journey. For example, it quickly recharges its battery on a highway so that you can continue to race down the pavement. The traditional BMW driving modes, such as Eco Pro, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ are also available and perform their usual tweaks.
The 330e’s entertainment system has come a long way, since the first years of the iDrive system. It has excellent graphics, plenty of physical knobs and buttons for most functions, and a great feel to the controller. The large 6.5-inch screen is bright to read and very vivid. Bluetooth pairing is good, and call quality is excellent. The quietness of a cabin helps a lot. The seating ensures quality comfort with the thigh bolster. The thigh bolster support provides perfect comfort, and it alleviates pressure on long trips. Rear seats are comfortable enough for two tall adults or three children. The 330e is well built and quiet. The visibility is excellent, and climate control is ideal. BMW 330e iPerformance is smart and adaptive. What a great car to drive!
