The 2022 BMW 3 Series is the latest model year in the long-running favorite's history and it continues to deliver the space, groundbreaking features, and engaging performance that generations of drivers have appreciated over the years.

What's New for the 2022 BMW 3 Series?

Whether this is the first BMW 3 Series you're considering of the fifth, the 2022 models we have in stock will surprise you with their authentic luxury and refinement. As a continuation of legendary model's seventh generation since 1982, the 2022 version doesn't get any major changes or upgrades and, instead, continues to give drivers the stellar performance and style they already know and love.


Depending on whether you prefer signature BMW gas-powered performance or the fuel-efficiency of a hybrid engine, there are three impressive 3 Series options to consider.

The first option is the BMW 330i. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine, this system offers up 255 horsepower and comes with rear-wheel drive standard, with all-wheel drive available as an option.

Next up is the BMW M340i model. Hailing from the iconic and meticulously engineered BMW M-Line of vehicles, this version gets its power from a turbocharged six-cylinder engine, offering 382 horsepower.

Prefer the smoothness and efficiency of a hybrid car? Consider upgrading to the BMW 330e. A plug-in hybrid system, this 288-horsepower system is comprised of a turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine, which works in conjunction with an electric motor. It also has a driving range of 23 miles on electricity alone, before it switches over to traditional hybrid power.

Regardless of which powertrain and trim level you prefer, each of these cars seats five people comfortably in two rows and has a nice trunk space that accommodates 13 cubic feet. Plus, the backseat folds flat in a 40 / 20 / 40 split, to make room for extra cargo when needed.


Looking for a luxury car that delivers a long list of the latest features for technology and comfort? The 3 Series has it, with standard equipment that includes:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration
  • Automatic climate control
  • Sunroof
  • Power-adjustable front seats

You can either choose to move up in trim levels to get more features or opt for one of the many additional packages that BMW has available. Highlights to look for include a premium brand sound system, heated seats and heated steering wheel, keyless entry, and much more.


Automotive safety has come a long way in the last 40 years, and the beloved 3 Series has kept step along the way.
