The BMW M3 is a big favorite among enthusiasts, so it’s no surprise that BMW wanted to add a little extra flair for the M3’s last year before it gets a total next-generation makeover. The new 2017 BMW M3 gets a few tweaks and upgrades that give it a more contemporary vibe, ranging from a cosmetic facelift to some changes to the chassis. The enhancements extend to the interior, which gets its fair share of tweaks for the new model year.
Cool features on the new M3 include LED exterior lights, a revised rear bumper, and styling cue changes that were previously seen on the updated M4 just a few weeks ago. The Competition package will get carried over onto the new model, with features like 20-inch alloy wheels and bigger brakes along with undercarriage upgrades. Inside, the latest versions of BMW’s ConnectedDrive system and integrated navigation are available in addition to new high-gloss black inserts for a more upscale vibe.
The new 2017 BMW M3 also gets a re-engineered suspension for the new model year, plus a tweaked exhaust system and rear differential for better driving and handling dynamics. However, the engine options are carried over from the previous models. That’s more than most vehicles get for a mid-cycle upgrade – but BMW has always had a commitment to quality and performance.
