2022 BMW 3 series

The 2022 BMW 3 series extends a winning streak. While it used to be available in several body styles, only the sedan has survived, chiefly due to public demand. The BMW 3 series is a relatively small luxury sedan compared to other BMW models and is available as a turbocharged 330i, 330 plug-in hybrid, M340i, and the high-powered M3.


BMW 3 Series Models

The 2022 BMW 3 Series lineup includes the 330e, 330i, and M340i. There are not that many novel features in the 2022 3 series; the minor updates include new standard features for some models, reshuffled option packages, and a whole list of updated individual options. The 3 series base models are rear-wheel drive; the all-wheel-drive system of BMW’s xDrive is optional. Feature highlights for the BMW 3 Series include:

  • All have rear-wheel drive with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
  • The body of all trims is designed to meet the demands of all types of roads. 
  • The brakes are solid.
  • The ride at least for inner-city driving is comfortable.
  • All have a rich spacy interior with decent trunk space.
  • The plug-in hybrid (330e) offers up to 23 miles of all-electric range.
  • All four trims offer a luxurious and spirited ride.
  • None have a manual transmission.

Other Features

  1. The fuel economy depends on the trim of the 2022 BMW 3 series and varies from 23 mpg for the inner city to 36 mpg on the highway. The most powerful 6-cylinder M340i has the lowest fuel efficiency numbers. 
  2. The interior is well designed, modern, and feels expensive. The sports seats are supportive and well-bolstered with extensive adjustments.
  3. Other features include a heads-up display, heated rear and front seats, and wireless charging.
  4. Except for the 330e, all the rest have ample cargo space.
  5. The infotainment center in all the BMW 3 series is pretty similar. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard features.
  6. One novel feature is the addition of BMW gesture control, which permits the driver and passengers to input certain commands with hand gestures.
  7. When it comes to driver assistance options, BMW only provides automated emergency braking and forward-collision warning systems as standard. All other options are available as add-ons.

Overall, all four trims offer good handling on the road. The interior is tastefully decorated with ample cargo space. All four trims have potent fuel-efficient engines, which allow the M3 series to leave most of the competition behind.

What Do Experts Recommend?

Of the four trims, the 4-cylinder 330i is recommended by most car experts. This car has decent power and is athletic in design. Adding in the sports package will bring in a specialty tuned suspension with unique styling bits. For a few more thousand dollars, the premium package will include hands-free passive entry, blind-spot monitoring, heated steering wheel, heads-up display, and much more. BMW also offers a dynamic handling package that optimizes the car’s driving behavior via upgraded brakes and adaptive dampers. 

What is the Price of the 2022 BMW 3 Series?

BMWs are not cheaply made cars. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is about $69,000. Add in the upgrades and the car can be yours for about $80-$85K.
