BMW Group has refreshed its highest-selling model, the BMW 3 Series for 2023 with a sharp design, revised interior, and carrying over the same powerplants. Along with changes to the front and rear section of the 2023 BMW 3 Series, the premium executive sedan also features a new curved display paired with the latest BMW Operating System 8. The new BMW 3 Series will be produced at BMW Group Plant Munich, as well as at BMW Group Plant San Luis Potosí in Mexico. We expect BMW India to bring the refreshed 3 Series to our shores next year, possibly by early or mid-2023.
2023 BMW 3 Series Exterior
The fascia of the 2023 BMW 3 Series receives major updates with structured surfaces, dynamic lines, and large air intakes making the front apron look sportier than before. The redesigned headlights and kidney grille give the car a strong visual presence, while the standard full-LED headlights are now much slimmer, with clear contours and daytime driving lights arranged in an inverted L shape offering a modern look. Adaptive LED Headlights are available as an option and receive blue accents. In profile, not much has changed apart from the fact that the 2023 BMW 3 Series now sits on a pair of 17-inch light-alloy wheels. At the rear, the new BMW 3 Series has a higher proportion of surfaces painted in body colour with a clean-cut design lending it a particularly sophisticated look. The horizontal lines, slim light units, and flared rear wheel arches accentuate the width and muscular stance of the rear. The exhaust system's tailpipe finishers now measure 90 or 100 mm in diameter, depending on the engine variant.
2023 BMW 3 Series Interior
The interior of the 2023 BMW 3 Series sedan is treated to a comprehensive update, with a new standard-fit BMW Curved Display that has a 12.3-inch information display behind the steering wheel and a control display with a screen diagonal of 14.9-inch merged together into a single fully digital and high-resolution unit. The gear selector lever also has a new design and is positioned in the control panel on the centre console along with the Start/Stop button, iDrive Controller, Driving Experience Control buttons, parking brake, and other vehicle functions. An automatic climate control system with three-zone adjustment is fitted as standards and can be operated by voice command or touch via the display. Other new additions to standard specifications include an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, the extended storage package, and Park Distance Control (PDC) with sensors at the front and rear. All models now also come with the BMW Live Cockpit Plus including the BMW Maps navigation system.
2023 BMW 3 Series Engine
The heart of the 2023 BMW 3 Series retains the powertrains from the predecessor, and so, you get the base 330i with 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 255 bhp, then there's the 330e plug-in hybrid with 288 bhp and the M340i with BMW's turbocharged 3.0-litre I6 making 382 bhp. The BMW 330e and BMW M340i are available with the automaker's xDrive all-wheel-drive system, and for 2023, 18-inch wheels are standard. All the engines for the new BMW 3 Series link up with an 8-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. BMW xDrive is standard on the range-topping models.
2023 BMW 3 Series Safety Features
The 2023 BMW 3 Series features a host of automated driving and parking systems to elevate comfort and safety. The standard equipment includes Front Collision Warning with brake intervention, Cruise Control with brake function, Speed Limit Display with no-overtaking indicator, Manual Speed Limit Assist, and Lane Departure Warning with lane return.
Optional safety features include lane change warning, BMW Head-Up Display, and Driving Assistant Professional, which comprises the Steering and Lane Control Assistant and the Active Cruise Control system with Stop & Go function, Automatic Speed Limit Assist, the route monitoring function, and traffic light detection.
