According to the manufacturer’s estimates, its zero-to-60 mph time is 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph. 

2. Generous storage space 

Even though it’s primarily designed as a performance car, that doesn’t mean that the 2024 BMW M3 can’t have other useful functions. It’s a sedan that has ample room for cargo, with a 13-cu-ft trunk and split-folding rear seats, which increase the overall cargo volume to 17 cu-ft. This type of cargo capacity will allow you to haul several carry-on bags or a couple of small suitcases, as well as a couple of days’ worth of groceries or several pieces of sporting equipment.
