2025 BMW 3 Series: Exterior and Interior

From the outside, it's almost impossible to discern what is new. There are some new colours though. The colours are Arctic Race Blue metallic and Fire Red metallic, with the latter exclusively available with the M Sport option. Models equipped with the M Sport package (optional on 330i models, standard on M340i) receive new 19-inch M alloy wheels, while the newest BMW Individual 19-inch alloy wheels in Y-spoke design (Style 1038i) with a dual-tone design are available across the board.

Inside, the 2025 BMW 3-Series receives more updates, including a redesigned two-spoke steering wheel for the 330i and a flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel for the m340i and 330i with M Sport package. The dashboard will also get new ambient lighting surrounding the air vents and a revised infotainment system with simplified menu structures to make functions simpler to reach. The new 3 Series features BMW iDrive and QuickSelect, now based on BMW Operating System 8.5.

There are still a variety of petrol, diesel, and plug-in hybrid powertrain options available. The plug-in hybrid versions feature a new high-voltage battery that provides 19.5 kWh of useful energy up from 12 kWh. The eDrive Gen5 battery gives longer electric-only range up to 101 km and now enables three-phase AC charging at up to 11 kW, with a full charge requiring two hours and 15 minutes. Diesel and M Performance variants continue to come with 48-volt mild hybrid technology. The 2.0-liter turbo and electric motor in the 330e versions provide a total system output of 292PS.
