IT MAKES good business sense for manufacturers to court buyers higher up a model range where performance is meatier and specification levels are more lavish, with meatier/more lavish profit margins to match. The latest BMW 340i is a fine case in point.

A decade ago its predecessor the 335i cost $107,300 plus on-road costs, a $37,900 rise on the middle-tier 325i. Five years ago the 335i dropped to $91,400 with a smaller $26,800 increase on the 328i below it.
