It's been four years since the sixth-generation G80 BMW M3 debuted. While its bold styling remains polarizing, it offers an unparalleled sports car experience,

driving strong sales. Despite many enthusiasts' hopes, the 2025 M3 retains its sizeable front grille but-

brings more power, updated styling, and enhanced interior technology.

The 2025 BMW M3 features the same 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six S58B30T0 engine as past models. The base trim offers 473 hp,

while the Competition trim increases that to 503 hp. Choosing the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system in the Competition trim boosts it to 523 hp.

While there's no confirmation on the return of the M3 CS variant, it's expected to get a similar power upgrade if it returns.

Though seemingly marginal, this power boost enhances the appeal of the M xDrive option, which could positively influence sales for the 2024 model year.

For those seeking a complete exterior redesign, patience is needed. The 2025 BMW M3 retains much of the G80 generation's design,

including the prominent front grilles. Notable updates include a new forged wheel option—style 825M—and upgraded LED headlights.

These headlights combine low and high beams into one module and feature arrow-shaped vertical LEDs for DRL and turn signals.

The M Shadowline lights with dark inner accents are still an option.

The 2025 BMW M3's interior gets upgraded with a new three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel featuring a red center line marker for a sportier feel.

Optional features include Alcantara-wrapped steering wheels and carbon fiber or brushed aluminum trims, with "Aluminum Rhombicle" trim standard.

The car will feature the latest generation of BMW's Drive, based on Operating System 8.5. It's displayed on a high-resolution curved screen-

angled towards the driver, with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 14.9-inch infotainment display. The new OS includes an upgraded, operable personal-

assistant via touch or voice commands. A simplified climate control interface and optional heads-up

display are included, emphasizing fewer physical buttons than touchscreen controls.

The 2025 BMW M3 pricing remains consistent with 2024 models, with slight adjustments:
