But then again, there is a HUGE GAP between a Chevy Malibu and a 335 too, so it's all relative...

Plus the 3's interior is comparable to the ATS and Mercedes' C class...Actually, I think it's even better. So it's very competitive in it's price class.
Have you sat in a new Malibu? The materials used in the mainstream family cars, or even in the subcompacts, are no longer cheap looking. The gap is not nearly as much as they used to be.
