2 slow slow slow 4 bangers against a 335... of course that drove better lol
As they pointed out almost immediately, while the cars were in different trim, they were comparing the lines as a whole. Also, that was a 330d (254 HP), not the 335d (309 HP). Similar engine, yes, but slightly down on power. Still a far more powerful unit than the 2.0L diesel in the 320d (181 HP), but they didn't rate the BMW highest because it had the best acceleration, they rated it highest because of a combination of factors, including the fact that it offers the best driver-focused car.
