The M340d is the most powerful of the diesel engines available in the 3 series before you reach the performance M3 model. Based around a 3.0 litre turbo diesel engine with 335 horsepower with a hybrid combines starter motor-generator that can add an extra 11bhp and make pulling away from junctions and roundabouts smoother. It's capable of a 0-60 time of just 4.6 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 155mph. The M340i rivals the likes of the Audi S4 which is now diesel only. The M340d will be a rare beast when compared to the number of 320d's you see on the roads thanks to a list price just shy of £50k, but the smooth powerful petrol engine does make the whole car feel a class above in terms of refinement, and combined with the xDrive 4 wheel drive system makes the car feel stable and secure with great road holding and traction in poor weather conditions, and a big step up from how BMWs usually behave in the snow, and thanks to stronger residuals it isn't that much more a month to lease, making it the perfect business tool for the higher mileage motorway driver as it will still return nearly 50 mpg on the official WLTP figures.
