The BMW 3-Series saloon represents one in five of all BMWs sold worldwide, with the UK being the fourth largest market. So the launch of the sixth generation 3 is a very big deal for the Munich-based manufacturer.

With turbocharged diesel and petrol engines, a more spacious interior and the focus on BMW's Efficient Dynamics technology, can it live up to the reputation of its illustrious predecessors and build on them? I headed to Spain to find out.
