Local pricing and features have been revealed for the 2023 BMW 3 Series, with the facelifted model due to arrive by the end of this year.
After three years on the local market, BMW’s spearhead 3 Series is soon due for its midlife update, bringing fresh styling and significant new tech features, including a 12.3-inch curved driver display and the implementation of BMW’s latest iDrive 8 infotainment.
Both sedan and touring body configurations will be offered, powered by BMW’s flexible 2.0-litre turbocharged B48 four-cylinder – with or without hybrid plug-in hybrid assistance – or the 3.0-litre turbocharged B58, also found in the Toyota Supra/BMW Z4.

2023 BMW 3 Series features
The updated 2023 3 Series is easily distinguished by its angular new front fascia with large air intakes, redesigned LED headlights and kidney grille. The rear apron also features a new integrated diffuser design.
All Australian-spec 3 Series cars are fitted with the M Sport package as standard, which includes a bolder front and rear apron and M light-alloy wheels in either 18- or 19-inches.
Changes inside the cabin are headlined by the new curved 12.3-inch digital driver display, which merges with the central 14.9-inch infotainment screen running BMW’s latest iDrive 8 operating system, until now seen exclusively in the iX and i4 electric vehicles.

Engine, drivetrain and fuel economy
BMW 320i and 330i 3 Series’ employ BMW’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine breathing through a twin-scroll turbocharger and producing 135kW/300Nm or 190kW/400Nm, respectively.
The engine itself is sourced from BMW’s wonderful modular engine family, with its design derived from the lovely 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six found in the M340i – and Toyota Supra and BMW Z4.
The 330e augments that same 2.0-litre B48 four-cylinder with a 50kW electric motor, powered by a 10.3kWh battery delivering a claimed electric-only driving range of 60 kilometres.
BMW 320i, 330i and 330es all send their power to the rear wheels, while the M340i xDrive, as its name suggest, leverages BMW’s all-wheel drive system.
See table below for essential manufacturer claims.
|0-100km/h||7.4sec||5.9sec (6.1sec Touring)||5.8sec||4.4sec|

|Lane departure warning|

Warranty and servicing
BMW remains one of the diminishing manufacturers in its class that persist with a three-year/unlimited-km vehicle warranty, while rivals at Audi and Mercedes-Benz both offer five-year/unlimited-km terms.
BMW’s PHEV battery warranty runs six-years/100,000km.
Available BMW pre-paid service packages range from three-years/40,000km to upwards of five-years/80,000kms.
BMW’s facelifted 3 Series is currently being advertised locally and is available for order. Customer deliveries are expected to commence towards the end of 2022.
