• 2023 BMW 3 Series gets an updated style, with an angular front bumper and thinner LED headlights.
  • The interior has a curved display that combines a 12.3-inch digital device and a 14.9-inch infotainment screen.
  • The line of engines is portable, the 330i uses a four-cylinder 330e combination of quadrilaterals with electric motor, and M340i feeds on the native six.

    The 3rd series used to be bread and butter with BMW, and at the time it was surpassed X3 and X5 crossovers in total sales, the 3-Series is still a BMW bestseller and a significant barometer for the brand’s direction. Now, after four model years, BMW is giving the 3 Series a makeover, bringing a more refined style and an updated interior, shifting the line of engines.

    Visual changes are minor, but create a sharper and more geometric design. The radiator grille has less rounded edges, while the headlights have redesigned LED signatures and eliminate a small indentation at the bottom. The bumper has a lower radiator grille clamped by L-shaped vents, and the rear bumper has a similar angular appearance. The standard 18-inch wheels also have a new design, while the new Skyscraper Gray paint color is available throughout the lineup. The M340i adds a new shade of Brooklyn Gray, which can also be included in the M Sport package, as seen here on the 330i and 330e. BMW notes that these images show the European model, but we expect the car for the US market to look the same.

    The M Sport package also adds interior trim, M leather steering wheel, interchangeable sports steering, unique 19-inch wheels, and the 330i and M Sport suspension, which can be replaced by an adaptive M suspension with electronic damping. The latter is also a separate option on the 330i and 330e and part of the Dynamic Handling package. The M340i also has its own style reliefs, featuring a mesh grille, new 18-inch wheels (with an additional 19-inch upgrade), trapezoidal exhaust pipes and a rear spoiler in body color. The 2023 M340i will also be offered with BMW Motorsport icon to the 50th anniversary of M.

    Inside the 3-Series gets a new curved display that combines a 12.3-inch digital instrument and a 14.9-inch infotainment screen. BMW says the number of buttons and controls has decreased due to greater reliance on touch and voice controls. Ventilation holes and some trim details have also been redesigned, and the gearshift knob has been replaced with a small lever. The iDrive infotainment system runs the latest BMW operating system and includes the BMW Maps cloud navigation system and a more advanced intelligent personal assistant that responds to voice commands.

    The lineup of engines of the 3rd series remains the same as the 2022 model year. The base 330i uses a 2.0-liter in-line four with turbocharged power of 255 hp, while the built-in hybrid 330e adds to this engine an electric motor that produces 288 horsepower and 23 miles of fully electric power reserve. The M340i is equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line six with 48-volt hybrid technology and 382 horsepower. All engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic and are available with optional all-wheel drive. BMW says the new 3-Series 2023 will be released in the United States in July this year, and details on prices and images of the U.S. car market should be available closer to the launch date.
