BMW's G20 3 Series gets its first mid-cycle update with a sharper design that incorporates plenty of L-shaped elements and a refreshed interior that gets a larger curved infotainment screen running the latest iDrive 8 operating system.

The 2023 BMW 3 Series gets cosmetic and tech updates but remains the same under the skin.

While some of BMWs recent models' design changes have been rather controversial, the G20 3 Series, without any doubt, continues to be a rather handsome looking sedan. In the mid-cycle facelift, the 3 Series gets a more chiselled look and a big tech update inside, along with the addition of iDrive 8. The engine options, however, remain the same as before.

Let’s talk about the exterior first. At the front, the headlights get an angular L-shaped LED DRL element, while the bumper has become edgier. The kidney grille has, of course, become a touch wider, but it isn’t nearly as problematic as that of some other BMWs.

The rear of the new 2023 3 Series gets a more subtle design, with L-shaped design elements, narrower taillights, and a reworked bumper. The M340i will also get BMW Motorsport-themed roundels instead of the regular ones.

Inside, the changes are far easier to see. There’s a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster flanked by a curved 14.9-inch infotainment display – both are housed behind a single pane of glass and run iDrive 8.

Expect the new 3 Series to make its way to India in the coming months, in the same 320d and 330i flavours as before, and perhaps with a slight hike over the current starting price of Rs 46.9 lakh.
