A Century of Cars: 60. Solido BMW 325i Cabriolet
The third generation 3 Seies (E36,
1992-2000) was the first 3 Series to be offered in a hatchback body
style. It was also the first 3 Series to be available with a 6-speed
manual transmission (in the 1996 M3), a 5-speed automatic
transmission and a four-cylinder diesel engine. The multi-link rear
suspension was also a significant upgrade compared with previous
generations of 3 Series.
The E36 was named in Car and Driver Magazine's 10 Best list for every year it was on sale..
