BMW M3 Specifications

Exterior

Close X

The new M3 looks more impressive than ever. This is due in part to a conspicuous front bumper, enlarged wheel arches, a tailgate-mounted spoiler (which completes the arc of a dramatically rising shoulder line) and a pair of quad-tipped dual-tailpipes. Practicality is as much a consideration as performance, which is why the vehicle retains its four-door body.

Oversized alloys Enlarged minimum-size 19-inch alloys are fitted as standard, each featuring an attractive twin-spoke design. While super-robust, these wheels are remarkably light, a quality that helps to produce enhanced performance and efficiency.
Remodelled rear The vehicle’s rear fascia is the focus of most exterior changes, with a completely remodelled tailgate, for instance, and a rear diffuser that delivers improved downforce.
Muscular appearance Since the car’s wheels have grown, it makes sense that the tyres have moved up a size, another reason why the M3 looks more impactful than ever. This increase in size means greater adhesion, which in turn delivers a more balanced ride at high speeds.

Interior

Since the M3 is based on the 3 Series, it’s no surprise that it offers a comfortable ride, low-slung front seats notwithstanding. These self-same positions offer lots of power-operated adjustment options, too, as does the vehicle’s sporty three-spoke steering wheel. There’s also room in the back for three younger passengers – or a pair of full-size adults – to travel in comfort.

Intuitive arrangement Gracing the new M3’s cabin is BMW’s latest dashboard configuration, which was rolled out with the most recent 3 Series iterations. This has resulted in a less cluttered look, especially when it comes to the number of buttons.
iDrive 7.0 Now, much more of the vehicle’s functionality can be accessed via iDrive 7.0, which provides the main point of focus where onboard tech is concerned.
Subtle branding The M3 identity is more strongly immersed within this latest generation. For instance, fixtures such as front seats, steering wheel and carbon trim are adorned with ‘M’ insignia.

Performance

Close X

The new M3 is lighter than ever and offers greater agility. This is a consequence of a new Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform that uses the innate strength of steel and blends it with lighter materials, specifically aluminium and, optionally, carbon fibre. The car is provided with selectable four-wheel drive for the first time, which means that engine power can be diverted entirely to the rear wheels, if required. A new 3.0-litre engine makes its debut with this latest M3. This six-cylinder, twin-turbocharged unit comes with (entry-level) 473bhp and (top-of-the-range) 503bhp outputs.

Incredible braking M Compound braking - or optional M Carbon ceramic brakes - provide peace of mind and exceptional performance as standard.
Adaptive M suspension Capable of electronically regulating shock absorbers, the intelligent Adaptive M suspension system reacts to changing conditions with ease.
Transmission options The new M3 is available with either manual six-speed or seven-speed double-clutch automatic transmission options for smooth changes.

Technology

Close X

The all-new M3 is installed with plenty of leading-edge tech as standard, from stereo systems to satellite navigation. There remains the option to upgrade to a multi-speaker Harman Kardon system, which continues to provide an impeccable audiophile experience. It’s unlikely that the M3 will undergo Euro NCAP crash-testing (due to it selling in comparatively small numbers). However, since it’s based on the normal 3 Series, which has been awarded a maximum five-star rating, there’s every reason to expect that it will offer at least the same allocations of passive safety features and driver aids.
