    2014 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the BMW ActiveHybrid 3

    • Not only do you get the full thrust of the 3.0-liter turbo-6 but also the benefit of the electric motor's 155 pound-feet of torque. Together, the pair punches a decisive hole in the horizon as the BMW surges forward with near-startling zeal.

      - Edmunds.com
    • I had to look at the dashboard to determine when the gas engine was shutting off or powering up, which is a testament to how unobtrusive the switch from gas to electric is and how similar the driving feels regardless of what power source is being used at any given moment.

    What reviewers liked least about the BMW ActiveHybrid 3

    • Trying to feather the brakes without jerking your occupants' heads is made slightly more difficult by the not-always seamless transition from regenerative braking to the hydraulic sort.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The EPA estimate for the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is 28 mpg in combined city and highway driving. That's just 2 mpg better than a BMW 335i.

    BMW ActiveHybrid 3 Comparisons

    • BMW's ActiveHybrid vehicles are easily some of the most complex the manufacturer has ever built, and it shows with a 300-lb. heavier curb weight compared to similarly equipped gasoline-only 3 Series.
