The third series family underwent a planned restyling: the main visual changes were made to the interior, but the chassis was also modified and the battery capacity of the hybrid versions was increased. In addition, new shades were added to the palette, the quality of interior finishing was improved and a new design of 19-inch wheels was offered. The updated 3 Series sedan and station wagon will hit the assembly line in July and will be produced at BMW factories in Germany, Mexico and China.

The 3 Series model has been in service since 1975, and in less than half a century it has changed generations six times. The current seventh-generation “treshka” debuted in 2018, and experienced its last restyling in 2022. And now the 2025 model year sedan and station wagon are presented, which can be distinguished externally by new colors (gray and blue metallic) and optional 19-inch BMW Individual Y-spoke wheels.


There are more changes inside, and the most noticeable of them is the optimized interface of the multimedia system, which now runs on the BMW 8.5 operating system. This made it possible to transfer the control of some functions from buttons to the screen, including climate control and heated and ventilated seats. The ventilation deflectors have been transformed, new colors have appeared for the atmospheric suspension, which can now respond to an open door or an incoming call with a soft pulsation. Well, in addition to all of the above, the updated 3 Series has a D-shaped steering wheel.


The range of sedan and station wagon engines for the 2025 model year is represented by four petrol and four diesel units. The 2.0-liter engines range in power from 150 to 286 horsepower and are paired with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission. Both gasoline and diesel engines are supplemented with a 48-volt starter-generator, which gives a short-term increase in power of 11 horsepower.

In addition to mild hybrid variants, there is also a plug-in hybrid 330e with xDrive all-wheel drive. The installation includes a gasoline “four” and an electric motor, which develop a total of 292 horsepower. The hybrid’s battery capacity is 19.5 kilowatt-hours, which is almost twice that of the pre-reform model. The sedan travels on pure electricity for 85-101 kilometers, and the all-wheel drive 330e xDrive Touring station wagon – 84-91.

The updated BMW 3 Series for the European market will be assembled at a plant in Munich, the US version in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, and the Chinese version in Shenyang in a joint venture with Brilliance. Production will start in July, so the new product could reach dealers in the fall.
