2021 BMW 3 Series Sedan
The BMW 3 Series features a modern, digital dashboard and multimedia system

Standard Features

The sleek yet stately look of the 2021 BMW 3 Series sedan lends it a premium air, with modern touches like standard LED headlights with cornering lights. Not only do these headlights look gorgeous, they provide outstanding visibility, helping to illuminate the inside of curbs and corners as you turn. Finally, a power glass moonroof also comes standard.

Climbing inside, you'll find a touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay™ and -- new for the 2021 model year -- Android Auto™ technology. That means you can pair just about any modern smartphone for hands-free calling and texting, maps and music. It's all operated through the intuitive iDrive multimedia system and a 8.8" touchscreen. There's even a modern 8.8" digital dashboard for a more advanced presentation of the information you need on your drive.

So all 2021 BMW 3 Series models provide a premium look and feel.

Driver Assistance

Courtesy of BMW Active Guard, every 2021 BMW 3 Series comes with intelligent protection from the dangers of the road! Active Guard provides Frontal Collision Warning and Automatic City Collision Mitigation and Braking, so you can avoid the most common kinds of frontal collisions.

With the addition of the available Driving Assistance Package, you'll also get Active Cruise Control and Active Blind Spot Detection for greater safety and confidence on busy highways.

Performance & Drive

Best of all, the 2021 BMW 330e models now boast even more power with the convenience and range of a plug-in hybrid! Its standard turbocharged engine and hybrid system together generate 288 horsepower and a blistering 310 lb-ft of torque. Or, stick with the classic gasoline engine in the 2021 BMW 330i, or upgrade to the M-tuned M340i model with a robust six-cylinder engine.
