What is the BMW 3 Series M340i?

The BMW 3 Series M340i is one of two high-performance iterations of the popular BMW 3 Series. Building on the original model, it delivers breathtaking performance and an array of innovative features, appealing to those who value potent engines and exceptional driving dynamics.

At launch, the M340i represented BMW’s first performance variant of a 3 Series model. Taking elements from the BMW M3, it provided an intermediate step between this full-blown sports car and the regular 3 Series trims. As such, it provided a strong rival to vehicles such as the Audi S4 and Mercedes-Benz AMG C43.

Two body styles are available for the BMW 3 Series M340i: saloon and touring (estate). It uses the German manufacturer’s xDrive system to offer outstanding control and an M Sport differential to provide a rear-biased power delivery. Sitting 10mm lower than the other 3 Series variants, it features exclusive styling elements such as a trapezoidal exhaust, 18-inch alloy wheels and matt black detailing.


BMW 3 Series M340i history

The BMW 3 Series first arrived in the UK in 1975 with saloon and convertible body styles available. A success story from the outset, the model went through five subsequent generations before the Mk7 launched in 2018. It remains as popular today, suiting family motorists, business users and those for whom practicality and space are priorities.

Introduced at the LA Motor Show in 2018, the saloon M340i arrived in showrooms the following year. The touring version followed in November 2019. It offered customers high levels of practicality in addition to standout performance. Under the bonnet is a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. It hasan eight-speed automatic transmission. Producing 369bhp and 500Nm of torque, it takes the saloon from 0 - 62mph in just 4.4 seconds. The touring achieving 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds.

Performance on the M340i benefits from M Sport Suspension, an M Sport limited slip differential and M Sport brakes. The car is also equipped with BMW’s xDrive system for the most traction in challenging conditions.

All variants of the 3 Series – including the M340i – received an update in 2022. This included a series of technological improvements, such as the addition of the Curved Display interface.This replaced the previous 8.8-inch Control Display. Combining a 12.3-inch floating instrument cluster with a 14.9-inch touchscreen for infotainment, it created a sleeker look in the cabin.
