MY25 BMW 3-Series revealed with mild-hybrid petrol motors

Written by News Team

The 2025 BMW 3 Series is entering its seventh model year with a series of minor updates. While the changes may be subtle, they touch upon various aspects of this popular sport sedan.

Mild-Hybrid Powertrain

The most significant alteration is the adoption of a 48-volt mild-hybrid system across all powertrains. This technology enhances efficiency and performance. Let’s dive into the specifics:

  • M340i: The 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine in the M340i now benefits from the electric motor, resulting in an output of 386 hp and 539 Nm of torque. These figures represent a slight increase compared to the previous 382 hp and 500 Nm. Notably, the 0-60 mph acceleration remains unchanged.

  • 330i: The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine maintains its previous output of 255 hp and 399 Nm of torque. Interestingly, it now operates as a Miller-cycle engine, adding a fun factor for automotive enthusiasts.

Chassis Improvements

BMW claims several chassis enhancements, although specific details are scarce. Notable changes include stiffer rear shock mounts and lighter steering tuning in Comfort mode.

Interior and Infotainment Updates

Inside the cabin, the 330i receives a new two-spoke steering wheel, while the M340i and 330i with the M Sport package feature a flat-bottom three-spoke wheel. The dashboard sees slight tweaks, including ambient lighting around the center air vents. The infotainment system now boasts improved menu structures for easier access to functions.

Pricing and Availability

Customers can expect the 2025 BMW 3 Series to arrive this year. U.S.-market production begins in Mexico in August. Here’s the pricing breakdown (including the $1,175 destination charge):

  • 330i: $46,675
  • M340i: $60,775

Adding all-wheel drive to either model incurs an additional $2,000. Knowing BMW, these models could make their way to India too. However, it won’t be soon.
