3 Series Interior

How Many People Does the 3 Series Seat?

The 2020 3 Series is available only as a four-door, five-seat sedan. 

The front seats have supportive cushions and a nice array of power 

adjustments, and the rear seats offer enough legroom for tall 

travelers. All models come standard with BMW's Sensatec 

synthetic leather upholstery. For a swankier cabin, check the 

options box for Vernasca leather seats, contrast stitching, or heated 

seats in the front and rear. 

3 Series and Child Car Seats

The back seat of the 3 Series has two complete sets of LATCH 


3 Series Interior Quality

The majority of the materials throughout the 3 Series cabin are of a 

high quality, and interior styling is handsome. This cabin isn't as 

opulent as some, though. A few lower-grade items are present, and 

some may find the design to be too mini malistic.

3 Series Cargo Space

The 3 Series sedan has a roomy 17-cubic-foot trunk. That's larger 

than most in the class offer, and it can carry an extra suitcase or 

two compared to the Audi A4 or Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans. 

fold-down rear seat is standard, and a power trunk lid or hands-

free trunk lid are optional.

3 Series Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The 2020 3 Series comes with the best i Drive infotainment 

interface to date, though the system still has a few bugs. On the 

plus side, it has sharp graphics, a customizable home screen, and 

an available digital assistant that learns your habits to automate 

some settings. For example, if you like to warm up the seats when 

it's frosty outside, the optional Intelligent Personal Assistant (IPA, 

for short) will automatically turn on your heated seats when the 

temperature drops.

The voice commands are hit-or-miss, however, as are the optional 

gesture controls. Other available upgrades include an enhanced 

interface with a 10.25-inch display, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon 

surround-sound system, and Apple Car Play as a subscription service.

3 Series Performance

3 Series Engine: Two Sporty Choices

For 2020, BMW offers two turbocharged engines for the 3 Series. 

The 330i comes with a 255-horsepower four-cylinder that enables 

this sports sedan to sprint from zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. It's 

lively and well-mannered, with no discern able lag or coarseness. 

Spirited drivers that can afford more will want the M340i xDrive. 

Its 382 horsepower six-cylinder engine shaves the car's zero-to-60 

time to 4.1 seconds (the rear-wheel-drive model accomplishes this 

feat in a still-impressive 4.4 seconds). Complementing both 

engines is a smooth, responsive eight-speed automatic 


3 Series Gas Mileage: Excellent

Rear-wheel-drive editions of the 330i get 26 mpg in the city and 36 

mpg on the highway, which is one of the highest ratings among 

nonhybrid luxury small cars. Annual fuel costs are about $100 

more on models outfitted with the x Drive all-wheel-drive system. 

At the time of this writing, fuel economy ratings are not yet 

available for the M340i.

3 Series Ride and Handling: Athletic Yet Comfortable

The 3 Series behaves just the way a proper sports sedan should. It's 

balanced and has responsive steering, and the suspension system 

keeps body movements in check without being so firm that you 

feel uncomfortable. Those who want to dial up performance should 

consider options like sport-tuned brakes, enhanced steering, and 

upgraded suspension systems. All models come standard with rear-

wheel drive, and you can add x Drive (BMW's name for all-wheel 


3 Series Reliability

The 2020 BMW 3 Series has a slightly above-average predicted 

reliability rating of 3.5 out of five from J.D. Power.

BMW 3 Series Warranty

3 Series Safety

3 Series Crash Test Results

Crash test ratings are not yet available on the 2020 BMW 3 Series 

from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or the National 

Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2019 sedan, which is 

nearly identical, was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS. That's 

the organization's highest safety designation.

3 Series Safety Features

A healthy number of advanced features has been added to the base 

3 Series for 2020. In addition to a rear view camera and rain-

sensing windshield wipers, this sports sedan now also comes with 

forward collision warning, pedestrian monitoring, automatic 

emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, adaptive headlights, 

and front and rear parking sensors.

Available safety features include adaptive cruise control with stop 

and go capability, a head-up display, adaptive LED headlights, 

automatic high beams, active parallel and perpendicular parking 

assist, a surround-view parking camera system, and lane departure 


3 Series Dimensions and Weight

The 3 Series is 15.5 feet long. Its curb weight ranges from 3,589 to 

3,968 pounds.

BMW builds the 3 Series in Germany.

Which BMW 3 Series Model Is Right for Me?

The 3 Series currently comes in two trims – 330i and M340i – and 

is only available as a four-door sedan. The key different 

between these trims is the engine, though the M340i also boasts a few interior upgrades.

Unless you can see yourself spending extra for a near-400-

horsepower sports sedan, stick with the 330i. Its MSRP undercuts 

the M340i by more than $13,000. You can add almost any feature 

to the 330i, with the exception of the six-cylinder engine. Spirited 

drivers can keep their price below $50,000 and still get many sport-

tuned components by adding on the M Sport package. BMW's 

wealth of available options gives you the power to customize your 

ride with the features you want while keeping your price in a 

comfortable range.

BMW 3 Series 330i

The 330i comes with a 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder 

engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and 18-inch alloy 

wheels. Prices start at $40,750 with rear-wheel drive and $42,750 

with x Drive all-wheel drive. This BMW's cabin features Sensatec 

upholstery (which is BMW's synthetic leather), 14-way power 

adjustable front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, proximity key less entry, and a moon roof.

Standard technology in the base model includes an 8.8-inch 

infotainment display, a navigation system, the i Drive 6.0 interface, 

HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, and 10 speakers. 

Also standard is an auto-dimming rear view mirror, front and rear 

parking sensors, forward collision warning, pedestrian monitoring, 

automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive 


There are three design collections to choose from, starting with the 

standard Sport Line. The Luxury offering costs $1,950 and adds 

chrome trim, ambient lighting, a sport steering wheel, and a 

Sensatec upholstered dashboard. Highlights of the $5,200 M Sport 

include LED fog lights, an aerodynamic kit, and a sport-tuned 


BMW 3 Series M340i

Under the hood of the M340i is a 382-horsepower turbocharged 

six-cylinder engine. Like the base model, the M340i comes as 

either a rear-wheel-drive sedan ($54,000), or the all-wheel-drive 

M340i xDrive ($56,000).

Standard high-performance components include M sport brakes, 

variable sport steering, the M Sport suspension system, an 

aerodynamic kit, and an M rear spoiler. This trim also gets a 10.25-

inch touch screen, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a 

hands-free trunk lid. Its subscription-based Apple Car Play 

includes one year of service.
