The BMW M340i is an M Performance 3 Series. Its 387PS and 500Nm engine, coupled with sub-5-second sprint time, promises sports-car performance. But for all that oomph under the hood, it stands out just as much as a glass marble on a gravel driveway. It also wears an ‘xDrive’ badge on the boot, so it seems no fabled BMW rear-wheel-drive dynamics are on the cards. At least that’s what we thought when we read the spec sheet.
On paper it sounds like one of those items on a restaurant menu that you can’t quite wrap your head around even after reading the description.
But after spending an afternoon driving the M340i on a twisty road we realised it’s a lot, lot more. It drives brilliantly, allows you to utilise all its potential easily and sounds delightful. It gives so much to the driving enthusiast that we decided instead of trying to explain that to you, we’d let the M340i do all the talking!
