The 2025 BMW 3-Series and 2025 BMW M3 have made their debut, bringing numerous updates, including new powertrains, styling, and tech.

2025 BMW 3-Series

As a refresh, the stylistic changes made to the 2025 BMW 3-Series lineup are predictably mild.

The 2025 BMW 3-Series lineup will receive new exterior color options, including Artic Race Blue metallic and Vegas Red metallic, with BMW Individual customers also being able to choose a new Frozen Pure Grey metallic as well as Frozen Portimao Blue metallic. Finally, new wheel options round out this year’s list of exterior changes.

Inside, the 2025 BMW 3-Series sees additional changes, including a new two-spoke steering wheel for the 330i and a flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel for the m340i and 330i with the M Sport package. The dashboard will also receive new ambient lighting around the air vents (with nine different user-selectable color choices) and an updated infotainment system with improved menu structures meant to reduce complications and make features easier to access.

Drivetrain options for the 2025 BMW 3-Series lineup are arguably the most notable, with every model receiving mild hybrid assist. The 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder in the 330i retrains the same power ratings as before, with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, while the more powerful M340i gains 4 hp for a total of 386 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. Both models retain the same 0-60 times as the previous versions. BMW has also made changes to the 2025 BMW 3-Series’ chassis including stiffer rear shock mounts and lighter steering in Comfort mode.

Pricing for the 2025 BMW 3-Series lineup is as follows (prices include $1,175 destination fee) –

330i – $46,675
M340i – $60,775

AWD (xDrive) can be added to either model for an additional $2,000.

2025 BMW M3

The 2025 BMW M3 also sees a few changes along with the updates being made to the standard 3-Series lineup.

Outside, the 2025 BMW M3 gets new headlights that feature an updated daytime running light treatment and updated turn signals. Subtle, yes, but this is a mild update, after all. An M Carbon Exterior Package adds carbon fiber-reinforced components such as the front air intake and rear spoiler, while the M Carbon Package (not to be confused with the previously mentioned exterior-only M Carbon package) will add carbon ceramic breaks, an Alcantara steering wheel, carbon fiber trim, and M Carbon bucket seats. New forged alloy wheels in a bright silver finish round out the changes to the 2025 BMW M3’s exterior.

Inside, the 2025 BMW M3 loses some physical controls, including those for the climate controls, which have instead been moved to the updated infotainment screen running BMW’s latest Operating System, 8.5. This system is comprised of a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and a 14.9-inch center infotainment touchscreen mounted side-by-side in a curved housing. Other interior changes include a new flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel with a red center marker, as well as an enhanced dashboard covered in Sensatec faux leather and now standard Aluminum Rhombicle Anthracite trim.

Motivation for the 2025 BMW M3 remains a turbocharged 3.0-lt straight-six engine delivering 473 hp in the base trim for a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds. Upgrading to the M3 Competition ups that number to 503 hp and lowers the 0-60 time to 3.8 seconds. The top-of-the-line M3 Competition xDrive (AWD) ups the hp numbers even more to 523 hp, delivering a 0-60 time of just 3.4 seconds.

Pricing for the 2025 BMW M3 is as follows (prices include $1,175 destination fee) –

M3 – $77,175
M3 Competition – $81,375
M3 Competition xDrive – $86,475

Customer deliveries of both the 2025 BMW 3-Series and 2025 BMW M3 will begin later this year.
