BMW has unveiled the updated 3-Series sedan, which features an updated exterior and interior, as well as new technologies.

The restyled model received an updated color palette, which now includes Arctic Race Blue and Vegas Red. Two new colors have also appeared in the BMW Individual range.

Variants with the M Sport package are equipped with new 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design. All models can also be equipped with new 19-inch light-alloy wheels from BMW Individual in Y-spoke design.

The BMW M3 facelift received new headlights with a different arrow arrangement for the daytime running lights and turn indicators, as well as a new set of forged alloy wheels with a bright silver finish.

Inside, there’s a new steering wheel and “cascading lighting” integrated into the trim around the new center air vents. Customers can choose between nine different colors and adjust the brightness to suit their taste.

BMW also noted that there are greeting and goodbye animations, as well as “light signals to indicate certain scenarios, such as an incoming phone call or an open door.”

Designers have also worked on the decor, with Fineline Light open-pore wood trim now standard on the 330i, while the M340i gets M Aluminum Rhombicle trim or carbon fiber panels.

Other features include an updated Sensatec instrument panel and a redesigned infotainment system running BMW Operating System 8.5 with a new screen, improved menus and improved functions.

The 2025 M3 gets a new three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel with multifunction buttons and a red center marker.

The updates continue under the hood, with the 2025 M340i featuring a new 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid system for sharper power delivery and greater efficiency. It produces 386 hp. (288 kW) and 539 Nm of torque (+4 hp, +39 Nm).

The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds when equipped with all-wheel drive. The maximum speed reaches 250 km/h.

The 330i’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine has also been redesigned, with redesigned intake ports and combustion chambers, as well as a number of smaller improvements. It produces the same 255 hp. (190 kW) and 400 Nm of torque.

There are no changes to the M3’s powertrains, with the exception of the M3 Competition XDrive variant, which has gained 20 horsepower (523 hp) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

Last but not least, BMW said the 3 Series sedan features a retuned chassis that “further improves the balance between sporting capabilities and comfort.” The steering system has been redesigned to reduce effort in Comfort mode.

Sales will start in July. Restyled models will be slightly more expensive.
