Overview 2024 BMW M3

The BMW M3 exudes madness. Its standard powertrain unleashes 473 horsepower from a twin-turbo straight-six engine, propelling it through a six-speed manual transmission and swiftly delivering power to the rear tires.

Despite its immense power, the M3 is surprisingly capable of maintaining a comfortable pace even when driving within legal limits. While rivals like the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio may offer a more refined and less intense driving experience at times, there is no wrong choice among these three luxury super sedans.

Exterior Design of the 2024 BMW M3

The 2024 BMW M3 boasts a bold and aggressive stance that is bound to turn heads wherever it goes. BMW designers have taken inspiration from the brand’s motorsport heritage, resulting in a visually striking and aerodynamically efficient design. The signature kidney grille has been enlarged, giving the front fascia an imposing look. The muscular lines and sculpted bodywork further enhance the car’s athletic presence. LED headlights and taillights add a touch of sophistication, while the quad exhaust tips emphasize its sporty nature.

If you ignore the grille details, the appearance of the BMW M3 2024 will be perfect for any customer, even the most demanding. Compared to its predecessor, the M3 2024 is 116.8 mm longer, 10 mm wider and 2.5 mm taller.

Even if you are a crazy fan of BMW, you will not be surprised when the grille of the BMW M3 2024 is so big. Many users named this detail pig’s nose instead of the typical kidney.


This is not the first time BMW has equipped a vehicle with an oversized grille. Previously, the BMW X7 and BMW 7-Series also caused controversy with their “big nose”. According to BMW, the M3 2023 has an unusual grille to please Chinese customers.

Aesthetics aside, in terms of performance, the massive grille on the 2024 M3 will help direct more air into the engine to improve performance. In addition, the German automaker also added air vents in the diffuser to help cool the brake system.

In the standard version, the BMW M3 2024 will be equipped with 18-inch front and 19-inch rear rims. Comes with front/rear tires of 275/40 and 285/35 respectively.

Up to the M3 Competition version, the appearance looks sportier with the front and rear wheels being 1 inch larger than the standard version. Comes with front/rear tires of 275/35 and 285/30 respectively.

Seen from behind, the BMW M3 2024 looks very fierce and aggressive thanks to the use of dark LED taillights. Combined with the system of 4 circular exhaust pipes typical of high-performance cars, evenly distributed create exciting sounds.


The diffuser at the rear of the car can also be ignored with its large design contributing to improved aerodynamics. If you purchase the optional M Carbon Exterior Package, the 2024 M3 will be equipped with a spoiler and rearview mirror covers made from ultra-light fiber.

In addition to its unique “M” badging and distinctive trim details, the M3 shares a similar interior with the regular 3-series. This means that the M3 has the same overall design, passenger space, and outward visibility as its more ordinary counterpart. While M cars are renowned for their enhanced performance, they also match or surpass the top-of-the-line 3-series in terms of interior materials and build quality. As expected, the M3 features more carbon fiber and microsuede accents to enhance its sporty aesthetic.

It’s unfortunate that the M3 Competition, with its increased power and optional all-wheel drive (for an additional $4100), is only available with an automatic transmission. The six-speed manual on the base version of the M3 is incredibly satisfying to drive.
