2017 BMW M3
Visually, the new M3 bears a striking visage. From the high-gloss black grille and large, aerodynamically enhanced air inlets to the streamlined LED headlights, the M3’s front end gives the look of a stalking beast preparing to pounce. Its lines and curves cut a dynamic profile, exhibiting motion and energy even when standing still.
The carbon fibre reinforced plastic roof, in keeping with BMW’s intelligent lightweight construction, keeps the car’s weight down and shifts its centre of gravity lower than a standard sedan, allowing the M3 to grip the road and improving the vehicle’s performance when taking corners or sharp bends in the road.
With a positively snarling 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo inline-6 engine, the M3 is capable of a staggering 444 horsepower, which translates to a 0-100km/h time of just over four seconds and peak torque of 406 ft.-lb. The engine itself is a marvel of modern engineering, embodying BMW’s quest for intelligent lightweight construction and improving all aspects of performance with a nearly even optimum axle load distribution.
The optional M Competition package takes the M3’s sporting excellence even further, incorporating Adaptive M suspension and a sport exhaust system to showcase the powerful engine’s distinctive purr. It also features lightweight sport seats and exclusive M light alloy wheels with mixed tires for competitive and versatile performance.
Like all late model BMW’s, the M3’s secondary systems are controlled via BMW’s improved and user-friendly iDrive Infotainment system. This includes a 6.5-inch tablet-style display screen, or an optional 8.8-inch screen if you opt for the navigation system. However, thanks to redundant controls on the steering wheel and four analog gauges on the dash, drivers can access and control the car’s systems in whichever way feels most comfortable and natural to them.
The M3 also includes standard luxury features such as heated and power-adjustable seats, patented M adaptive suspension, rain-sensing wipers, and full electronic connectivity, including Bluetooth and AUX/USB inputs.
