  • The 2025 BMW 3 Series adds a pair of paint colors: arctic race blue metallic and Vegas red metallic.

  • BMW says the 2025 BMW 3 Series is scheduled to launch in July 2024 and will start at $46,675.

BMW is rolling out some updates for the venerable 3 Series for the 2025 model year. Albeit light, these updates include some minor styling changes and some revised consumer-facing tech. There are also a couple additional finish options, some new wheel options, and a little extra power on six-cylinder-powered models.

The entry point to the 3-Series is largely unchanged under the hood. The 330i’s 2.0-liter I4 makes the same 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque as the outgoing model. That power still travels exclusively through an eight-speed automatic transmission to either the rear or all four wheels if check the box for xDrive.


The more potent M340i, on the other hand, does see a minor increase. According to BMW, the ’25 M340i sends 386 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic. From there, power hits the rear wheels, or all four wheels if you opt for that same xDrive system.

That six-horsepower bump might not seem like a lot, but the additional 29 lb-ft of torque over the outgoing model. The extra torque helps the M340i hustle to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds in xDrive trim.

Outside of the engine bay, the styling mostly carries over for 2025. However, shoppers will welcome two new finishes for the 3 Series: Vegas red metallic and Arctic race blue. BMW is also offering frozen pure grey metallic and frozen Portimao blue. Models equipped with the M Sport package will also get a new set of 19-inch wheels.

Like the new M3, the standard 3 Series also gets a new flat-bottom steering wheel. The 2025 BMW 3 Series will also receive the updated BMW Operating System 8.5 and will get a new home screen. Alongside the new operating system is a touch-based climate control system that can also be controlled by voice commands.

While these tweaks are minor, so is the price change.

The 2025 BMW 330i will start at $46,675, which is a cool $1,180 more than the current model. The same $1,180 bump will be found on 330i xDrive models, which will now start at $48,675. The six-cylinder-powered M340i, meanwhile, will start at $60,775, with xDrive models driving that price to $62,775.
