BMW has unveiled the facelifted 3 Series, with the refreshed model gaining “targeted” exterior updates and a newly designed interior featuring new tech.
The most notable exterior updates come in the shape of redesigned LED headlamps, flanking an updated version of the German marque’s kidney grille. BMW says the latter item’s “lightly modified” contours and new double bars give it a more purposeful look.
“BMW has also introduced the M Sport package Pro”
’Round back, the facelifted 3 Series sports a new rear apron, which, BMW says, hands its premium midsize sedan a “particularly” sophisticated look. Meanwhile, the tapered rear lamps and flared wheel arches add to the car’s sporty stance. Depending on the model, the tailpipe housings now measure 90 mm or 100 mm in diameter.
In addition to the carmaker’s familiar M Sport package (which now features a new design), with the updated 3 Series, BMW has also introduced the M Sport package Pro. The non-Pro package includes a honeycomb grille, redesigned fore and aft aprons and new wheels measuring. The 18-inch M light-alloy items are wrapped in mixed-size rubber.
The M Sport package Pro features the firm’s M High-gloss Shadowline trim, and M lights Shadowline. This pack also comes with an M Sport braking system, complete with red brake callipers.
Inside, the 3 Series now boasts BMW’s Curved Display, incorporating a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 14.9-inch infotainment screen. The system features the automaker’s new-generation infotainment software. The gear selector has also been redesigned. Three-zone climate control and sat-nav are included as standard.
