The sporty look of the new BMW 3-Series is enhanced by a clearly structured surface, dynamic lines and large air inlets at the front. Newly designed headlights and kidney grille provide a strong visual impact. The headlights with LED technology are narrower, with clear contours and inverted L-shaped daytime running lights. Revised contours and new double bars give the BMW kidney grille a more powerful look. The glossy black framed air inlets under the kidney grille cool the brakes and add an elegant element to the look.

Adaptive LED headlights are optional. This can be recognized by the blue accents on the lamp housing. The blue light effect under the headlight unit gives a unique front view in the dark. Adaptive LED headlights offer a variety of functions such as cornering lighting and a glare-free matrix high beam function with dynamic control of beam range and width.

At the rear, horizontal stripes give way, narrow headlight units and wide wheel arch edges accentuate the broad, muscular stance on the road. The exhaust tip now has a diameter of 90 or 100 millimeters, depending on the engine variant. In addition, all models are equipped with 17-inch light alloy wheels.

The Series 3 character presents itself with the Model M Sport. This package includes new features such as a honeycomb structure for the BMW kidney grille, special designs for the front and rear bumpers, as well as new 18-inch M light-alloy wheels (wider at the rear). The BMW Performance models, the M340i and M340d, from BMW M GmbH also stand out with a more prominent appearance. It can be recognized by the BMW kidney grille in a mesh design, 18- or 19-inch M light alloy wheels (optional), trapezoidal exhaust tips and glossy black M mirror caps.

The new M Sport Pack Pro in the options list. It is available in addition to the Model M Sport and also for the model from M GmbH.

The range of body colors has been expanded with Skyscraper Gray metallic and M Brooklyn Gray metallic as part of the Model M Sport. Individual colors Frozen Pure Gray metallic and Frozen Tanzanite Blue metallic have also been added.

The driver-oriented cockpit is given more shape by the Curved Display. The 12.3-inch information display behind the wheel and the 14.9-inch Touch Control Screen combine into a large curved display with a high-resolution display. The number of physical switches has been significantly reduced in favor of touch and talk operations. The transmission switch of the 8-speed Steptronic transmission is also a new design. It is part of the control panel on the center console, which also contains the Start/Stop button, iDrive Controller, Driving Experience Control switch, parking brake, and operation of other vehicle functions.

Automatic air conditioning with 3-zone setting is standard equipment. These functions can be operated via speech or touch on the Touch Control Display.
