It's one thing to create a vehicle. It's quite another thing to create a category. Today, the BMW 328i Sedan continues to define the segment with razor-sharp lines, 230 horses, and a 6-cylinder engine that adds even more power and to its agility.
And you know what they say - "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". The car that invented the sports sedan has been "flattered" by competitors so sincerely, and so often since its inception in 1975, you'd think it's only available color would be blushing red. Who can blame the "other guys" for admiring its powerful inline six-cylinder engine with up to 300 horsepower? Or coveting its unrivaled suspension tuning that melds a supple ride with racetrack responsiveness? For drivers, however, better to choose the original, as flattery all too often gets you nowhere.
