The sixth generation of the BMW 3 Series consists of the BMW F30 (sedan version) and was produced from 2011 to 2019 and is often collectively referred to as the F30.
The F30 is the first generation of 3 Series to be powered by a range of turbocharged engines exclusively and electric power steering (replacing the hydraulic power steering systems used previously).
The 328i initially used the turbocharged 4-cylinder N20 engines. This meant that the 325i and 328i models (traditionally powered by naturally-aspirated 6-cylinder engines) now used the turbocharged 4-cylinder N20 engine.
