2018 BMW M3

The BMW M3 performance sedan carries over mostly unchanged for 2018. Minor changes include an updated iDrive 6.0 infotainment system with touch-screen display as standard, LED headlights replacing the former xenon units, and high-gloss black M3 badging on the seats. A special edition, the 2018 BMW M3 CS, boasts higher power, lighter weight and a global production of just 1,200 units.

2017 BMW M3

A new 4-cylinder engine brings new nomenclature; the 330i replaces the 328i. An all-new 6-cylinder engine does the same higher in the lineup with the 335i being replaced by the 340i. There are also trim and color tweaks, including the M Sport Package becoming standard on 340i models.

About BMW M3

“M3” could be among the two most important characters in the automotive kingdom. For decades, enthusiasts have dreamed about and salivated over them, knowing they equate to the top-dog, track-ready version of the BMW 3 Series (reviewed separately). At roughly $70,000, the 2018 BMW M3 continues to bolster the German automaker’s bottom line while fulfilling the aspirations of serious drivers and the merely badge conscious. It’s the rare high-powered luxury sedan that can pound a track, incite envy from friends and strangers, and still needs no introduction. Once the unquestioned benchmark, BMW’s little rocket now faces more powerful and fresher rivals like the Mercedes-AMG C 63, Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, Audi RS 5 and Cadillac ATS-V. Still, on a track the M3 holds its own.
