The BMW 3 Series is one of the key players in the luxury sports sedan class, and the German automaker has shown it’s keen on keeping its place toward the top of the vehicular totem pole with improved interior tech and visual updates for 2023. These changes also come with a small bump in price: The base 330i now starts at $44,795 (includes destination).

The interior sees the biggest changes, with an all-new curved display that combines the 14.9-inch touchscreen with a smaller 12.3-inch instrument cluster display to create one screen. BMW says the infotainment’s operating system has been upgraded to the latest version, and some controls have also been revised, including the gear knob being replaced with a small toggle lever on the center console. The exterior alterations are comparatively slight and feature a reworked front end and new wheel choices, plus a redesigned rear bumper with the M Sport Package.

Performance hardware carries over from 2022, with the base 330i using a 255-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The M340i features a 382-hp, turbo 3.0-liter inline-six, and the M3 and M3 Competition trims bump power up to 473 and 503 hp, respectively. Finally, the plug-in hybrid 330e uses a 181-hp, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder and electric motor for a system total of 288 hp. All 3 Series variants come with an eight-speed automatic transmission standard except the M3, which gets a six-speed manual.
