BMW 3 Series Performance

2022 BMW 3 Series Engine Specs

Any discussion about a car’s MPG needs to start with its engine. In the case of the 2022 3 Series, there are three possibilities for what you might have under the hood.

In the event you go with the 330i or the 330i xDrive trims, you’ll be propelled by a 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that allows access to a maximum 255 horsepower.

The M340i, M340i xDrive, M3, M3 Competition, and M3 Competition xDrive trims make use of a 3.0-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine. However, the power ratings differ between each trim level. You get 382 horsepower for the M340i and M340i xDrive, 473 horsepower for the M3, and a whopping 503 horsepower for the M3 Competition and M3 Competition xDrive.

Finally, there’s the 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine and electric motor combination that powers the 330e and 330e xDrive trims to the tune of 288 horsepower.

With such a wide selection from which you can choose, you’re bound to be able to pinpoint the option that matches your priorities the best.
