Just released from an overhaul last year, the 2020 BMW 3 Series continues to offer one of the best combinations of comfort, performance and prestige that you will find among small luxury sport sedans. This new seventh generation is 3 inches longer and 1.5 inches wider than before, but it’s still as agile and stable in fast corners.
The 2020 BMW 3 Series now offers one of the most spacious interiors in its class, with more headroom than before and a considerable increase in rear legroom. There is also more shoulder space on the front seats, so the sedan cabin is no longer tight. Visibility to the outside has also been improved and standard sport seats are well reinforced, support and offer a wide fit, which facilitates the feeling of comfort. The overall quality of interior design and assembly is also among the best in the industry. Nothing seems cheap in the 2020 BMW 3 Series and its controls are well located. An electric sunroof is standard, and all cabin lighting is done with LEDs. The BMW digital instrument cluster is a bit messy, but it’s attractive and decidedly modern. Some may find the scan counterclockwise from your strange tachometer needle, but you get used to it quickly. With 17 cubic feet of space, the 2020 BMW 3 Series also has one of the largest trunks in its class, and a 40/20/40 split folding rear seat is standard. An electric safe is available.
Each 2020 BMW 3 Series comes with an 8.8-inch touchscreen, but its infotainment system can also be controlled with a large button and buttons on its console or with voice commands. The Live Cockpit Plus feature set, which now includes navigation, is standard. But for the good thing, you will need to choose the Live Cockpit Pro package, which increases the size of the touchscreen to 10.25 inches and gives you the latest and best performing iteration of the BMW iDrive system. On-board Wi-Fi is available separately, with a wireless phone charging platform, but the sedan comes with two USB ports. You also have to pay extra for SiriusXM satellite radio. Apple CarPlay integration is free for the first year; Android Auto is not available. A unique option is BMW Gesture Control, which allows the driver or passenger to enter certain commands with hand gestures. It’s more new than useful, but it will surprise your friends.
The keys to its charms are a larger, stiffer chassis, and redesigned suspension and steering, which adjust the 2020 BMW 3 Series and considerable driving performance. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine, taken from the previous model, gains a little more power and increases the torque at low revs. And by 2020, a six-cylinder engine option returns in the form of the new M340i.
By 2020, retail prices for the 2020 BMW 3 Series sedan start at $ 40,750. That’s above the average price of a small luxury car at around $ 2,500.
