13. BMW M3 Sedan
When BMW debuted the new 3 Series in 2012, the M3 Sedan was pulled from the lineup. After taking some time off, the M3 Sedan returns for the 2015 model year with a completely new look that matches the 3 Series. This look includes a more pronounced grille, headlights that stretch to meet the grille, and more aggressive body lines.
Under the redesigned skin is where the magic happens, as a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo inline-six rolls in to replace the old M3 Sedan’s V-8. This compact engine delivers an astounding 420 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, and mates to either a six-cog manual or a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. Also changed up is the suspension, which now features tons of lightweight aluminum and lacks the squishy rubber bushings that allow excessive body roll. The latter of the two suspension changes creates a rigid connection that may negatively impact ride quality, but it gives the M3 Sedan a race car-like feel.
