Irvine BMW Boasts Best Luxury Vehicle According to Popular Mechanics

2010 BMW 335d available now at Orange County dealership

Irvine, CA, March 23, 2010 --( Irvine BMW is proud to announce that Popular Mechanics has named the 2010 BMW 335d the Best Luxury Vehicle on the market. As a vehicle ahead of the curve in its ability to produce sports car acceleration with exemplary economy, the 335d reels in lesser cars with virtual effortlessness.

“Luxury cars don't have to be one-dimensional," Irvine BMW General Sales Manager Steve Rudkin said. “The 2010 335d blends luxury, performance, fuel economy and exhilaration into one very rewarding package."

Under the hood is a TwinPower turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder diesel, with a mammoth 425 lb-ft of torque that can return solid mileage. It takes only one brief prod of the right pedal to know the BMW has an incredible motor. The rush of torque is not unlike an old-school big-block V8’s.

This diesel model fits right in with the rest of BMW’s 3 Series lineup, offering fluid, organic steering and a frame that encourages you to press on just as hard as the road will allow. Yet this BMW rides comfortably and absorbs potholes with a muted knock.

As one of the largest BMW centers on the West Coast, Irvine BMW has loyally served Southern California for nearly a decade. The dealership’s helpful and knowledgeable staff, expert factory-trained technicians and one of the nation’s largest selections of new and certified pre-owned BMWs have made Irvine BMW a landmark in Southern California’s automotive landscape.
