The BMW 3 Series Mzansi Edition has made its debut, with BMW South Africa handing its popular premium midsize sedan some local flavour. See full pricing below…

Three 3 Series derivatives will be available with the option of Mzansi Edition specification: the 318i, 320i and 320d; all boasting sportier exterior styling and a more luxurious cabin than the standard models. As standard, all Mzansi Edition models are fitted with BMW’s M Sport package with M High-gloss Shadow Line detailing for the kidney grille which, in Mzansi Edition guise, is fitted with the German manufacturer’s iconic glow feature. Previously available on only the BMW X6, the iconic glow grille features LED backlighting, which illuminates when the 3 Series Mzansi Edition is locked and unlocked.
