There are other factors, the driver's connection to the road is also a important measure. The 3's unique steering feel is a good example, not likely to be duplicated in the F30.
I don't see within reason what size (weight being equal) has to do with a car being a drivers vs family car and in fact the 3 series has always been basically a European size family car. Certainly a Bentley Continental is not going to be a nimble car even if it weight 3400 pounds but an F30 is a measly 4" longer than an e90. I understand that many harken back to days when a 3 series weighed 3000 pounds and was a smaller car but that's not what the market wants in 2011. My e90 is our family car and I love that it can do that and be fast and nimble at the same time. It's what makes a 3 series the world's best luxury sport sedan.
