The Bavarian manufacturer is not resting. It is presenting another refreshed edition of the 3 Series, though it has not changed much visually. However, customers should appreciate the increased power and updated equipment.

The current generation of the 3 Series is not heading into retirement. The manufacturer has introduced improvements that will allow it to remain competitive in the demanding market for several years. So, what has changed?

At first glance, not much. You will recognize the "new" 3 Series primarily by the previously unavailable trim options (Arctic Race Blue, Vegas Red, Frozen Pure Grey, and Frozen Portimao Blue paints) or the two-tone wheels reserved for richer variants.

Inside, you can spot a redesigned vent in the center console, surrounded by ambient lighting with nine color options. BMW has also introduced several decorative strips, including real Ash Grey wood and aluminum.

Yet, the most significant update is the new multimedia system with BMW Operating System 8.5, which operates faster and more intuitively and features new functions.

There's also significant development under the hood, in both combustion and electrified versions. Some versions now offer an additional power boost or greater range.

For instance, the M340i edition now has 374 hp and 398 lb-ft of maximum torque. This improvement is due to the use of a mild hybrid system. The performance is more than good—it hits 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and 155 mph at the top.

The Plug-in 330e has gained a larger battery. Thanks to its 19.5 kWh capacity, the electric range has increased to about 62 miles. Improvements have also been made to the top edition M3 Competition xDrive, which now generates 530 hp instead of the previous 510.

We should receive the full specifications of the refreshed 3 Series soon.
