Drivers looking for an elegant BMW sedan have several options to choose from. In this 2017 BMW 3 Series vs 5 Series comparison we are going to compare two elegant models that may be suitable for different lifestyles and family needs. Both the 2017 BMW 3 Series compact sport sedan (available in a wagon body style in some trims) and the 2017 BMW 5 Series midsize sedan deliver premium BMW luxury interiors and features. However, their different sizes and engine options can mean different advantages for different situations.
The 2017 BMW 5 Series is a larger model that offers significantly more trunk space. However, drivers who are looking for a compact and maneuverable vehicle with top luxury may want to opt for the smaller but still beautifully equipped 2017 BMW 3 Series. Standard features on both vehicles include Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the iDrive infotainment display (with a 6.5-inch display standard on the 2017 BMW 320i and a 10.3 inch display on the 5 Series). The xDrive All-Wheel drive system is available on both vehicles.
