BMW 3 Series Saloon Leasing

Originally introduced in 1975 as a successor to the 02 Series, and known as the E21, the BMW 3 Series saloon became popular for its sporty handling and luxury features.

The car has undergone various modifications over the years and the current seventh generation model, which was unveiled in 2018, focuses on a balance between performance, luxury and efficiency. The current BMW 3 Series saloon features advanced driver-assistance systems, updated technology and a range of engines which includes plug-in hybrid variants. Throughout its history so far, the BMW 3 Series saloon has established itself as a benchmark for its class, quality craftsmanship, dynamic driving experience and innovative features – it remains one of the brand's most popular and iconic models.

The 3 Series saloon is a compact executive car, although it has also been available in other body styles, and its shape is sleek and sporty with a focus on aerodynamics. The model is popular with driving enthusiasts, luxury car buyers and professionals or executives who appreciate the sophistication, prestige and precise handling that the car offers.

A BMW 3 Series saloon lease is a popular choice for smaller families as it provides comfortable seating for four or five passengers and boasts a reasonably-sized boot for luggage. It also has become appealing to environmentally friendly drivers as they combine performance with improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. The huge appeal of this vehicle is what makes it enduringly popular. If you're a business looking for a BMW 3 Series saloon lease deal for your fleet of sales engineers or an individual seeking a lease on a BMW 3 Series saloon for your family, Gateway2Lease is certain that you can find the vehicle you need, at a competitive price, delivered to your door in the shortest possible time.
