2015 BMW 335i xDrive - Instrumented Test C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 4.6 sec Standing ¼-mile: 13.3 sec @ 105 mph 2016 BMW 328i Automatic - Instrumented Test C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 5.2 sec Standing ¼-mile: 13.9 sec @ 99 mph well model 3 is not out yet, so the best comparison will be against 70, and 70d. 70d: Car and Driver C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 5.1 sec Standing ¼-mile: 13.8 sec @ 101 mph no data to back up 70, but 70 will be slower than D the number doesn't lie, 70d barely matches 2016 b48 328i, let alone catch 335xi. now 335xi is no longer in production, 340xi is even faster. next gen G series 3 class will be using carbon core frame, yes it has a mixture of carbon fiber and aluminum. being faster and lighter than the current 340i is given. bottom line: stop saying model 3 is fast, when you have no idea what the competitors are performing.
