2018 BMW 3 Series Sedan Trims & Specs

The BMW 3 Series range is comprised of the 320i, 320i xDrive, 328d, 328d xDrive, 330i, 330i xDrive, 340i, and the 340i xDrive. All models use an eight-speed automatic transmission and are rear-wheel-drive if not specified with xDrive. A six-speed manual transmission can be specified on the 320i, 330i, 340i, and 340i xDrive, but BMW’s quick-shifting automatic will suit most tastes.

The base 320i uses a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Performance is adequate rather than brisk. The 328d produces 180 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque from its 2.0-liter turbodiesel. 330i models have outputs of 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and provide strong acceleration. Finally, the 340i is the only six-cylinder model available and its 3.0-liter turbocharged motor produces 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque.

Standard features on the 320i include SensaTec-upholstered seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, a 6.5-inch color infotainment screen, keyless entry, push-button ignition, and a nine-speaker sound system. The 328d and 330i add ten-way powered front seats with memory settings for two drivers, power-folding side mirrors, and split-folding rear seats. The 340i gets a power sunroof and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

Optionally available equipment includes heated seats, Apple CarPlay integration, navigation system with a larger display screen, adaptive LED headlights, leather seats, head-up display and a host of driver-assistive safety features such as a lane departure warning system.

🚗What 2018 BMW 3 Series Sedan Model Should I Buy?

Although the 320i and 328d are competent performers, the 330i provides the level of power that really allows you to exploit the capabilities of the 3 Series' chassis. The 328d, while offering admirable fuel efficiency, is simply outclassed by the 330i's breadth of performance. The Premium Package is appealing in offering navigation, a head-up display, and real-time traffic updates to really modernize the feel of the interior, plus heated seats are included. If ultimate performance is on the agenda, the pricey 340i with the Track Handling Package turns this luxury midsize sedan into a superb performer, the limits of which will need to be explored on a track.
