5 reasons to buy the 2022 BMW M3

1. Speed meets style

With the 2022 BMW M3, there are no trade-offs between looks and power. Under the hood of the standard trim, a 3.0L 473-horsepower twin-turbo engine puts the M3 into an elite class of vehicles. It has a zero-to-60 time of 3.5 seconds with an impressive 406 lb-ft of torque. That's enough power for the track if you want it, but the M3 has the versatility to be a great daily driver as well. The exterior has a striking double grille and slick-curved hood, which makes it clear that the M3 is not to be messed with. When it comes to fuel economy, the M3 clocks in with an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city, or 23 mpg on the highway (19 mpg combined).

2. Competition trim

While the standard trim is already powerful, the Competition trim takes things to a whole new level. With 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, the Competition's powertrain adds an extra punch. While the standard trim comes with 2WD and a manual six-gear transmission, the Competition has AWD and automatic transmission, upping performance on windy roads.

3. Interior comforts

The interior of the M3 feels like a cross between a sports car and a racecar. You get leather seats throughout, along with carbon fiber and microsuede accents that provide a racier vibe. Memory and power seats, along with front seat heaters, give the M3 a level of luxurious comfort, too. If you want more support as you take those corners, look for the available heavily bolstered front seats (standard on the Competition trim). Despite the performance credentials, BMW has balanced this with true sedan comfort and style in the M3.

4. Perks galore

The 2022 M3 comes standard with a range of driver aids, including blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, parking sensors, and a rearview camera. And new for 2022 is the available remote start, which means on a cold or rainy day you can run out of the house and find refuge in an already warm-and-cozy environment.

5. A bevy of driving modes

The central console on the M3 sports a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster that helps you keep track of the many drive modes on offer. The M View, for instance, adds a shift indicator and swaps the tachometer with one that's intuitive to read for a sportier drive. You can toggle between these modes easily using convenient red buttons fixed to the steering wheel.
