2024 BMW M3 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2024 BMW 3 Series?

The BMW 3 Series is a five-seat luxury sports sedan pitted against competitors such as the Audi A4, Cadillac CT4, Genesis G70 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Powering the base 330i is a 255-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The M340i gets a 382-hp, turbo 3.0-liter inline-six with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. Rounding out the 3 Series lineup is the plug-in hybrid 330e (which has up to 22 miles of electric driving range) and the high-performance M3. The M3 has a twin-turbo inline-six with at least 473 hp, and it’s the only 3 Series model still available with a six-speed manual transmission. All 3 Series models are available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

What’s New on the 2024 BMW 3 Series? 

After a mid-cycle refresh for the 2023 model year, the regular BMW 3 Series lineup doesn’t see any significant changes for 2024. The M3 gains a limited-edition CS trim with 543 hp, specific suspension tuning and a starting price of almost $120,000.

Should I Buy the 2024 BMW 3 Series?

For many years, the BMW 3 Series has been the default choice for luxury shoppers looking for a relatively small and sporty sedan. The cabin has adult-friendly accommodations, and the onboard tech is suitably impressive for a car in this class. That said, care must be taken when adding options or climbing to higher-performing models. Both quickly raise the price, making the 3 Series a tougher sell for anyone seeking to balance value with driving pleasure.
