BMW 3-Series Sedan Overview
Straddling the thin line between being dynamic and practical is the 3 Series Sedan from BMW. Being a compact sedan, the 3 Series Sedan fills in that gap that separates its higher-end cars from its more pocket-friendly offerings here in the Philippines for a much wider choice. Subtle yet attractive lines and moldings embellish the 3 Series Sedan, and that same perfectionist German Engineering attitude also continues through the inside. Being able to comfortably seat four people, with extra spaces for those travel-essential things, the 3 Series Sedan gets the nod for being family-friendly. Powered by a fuel-efficient yet capable 2.0-liter gasoline engine, the 3 Series Sedan surely is one to blend in perfectly with the modern-day Filipino lifestyle. Sporty yet subtle, luxurious yet humble.
The LCI refresh of the BMW 3 Series launched on February 2023 as part of BMW Philippines’ plan to streamline their lineup locally.
The 3 Series has been the longest standing nameplate of BMW Philippines since its arrival in the 90’s, and has been one of their best sellers ever since.

The current 3 Series is under the G20 chassis code of BMW. This designation is the nameplate's 7th generation and was also offered in a variety of body styles in other countries. BMW based the G20 on its Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform, which uses high-strength steel and aluminum. The predecessor to the G20 generation is the F30. The car occupies the compact segment and its wheelbase measures in at 2,851 mm for standard variants. Its length comes in at 4,709 mm, width at 1,827 mm, and height at 1,422 mm. Suspension is provided for by a set of MacPherson struts in the front and a multi-link suspension in the rear, damped by a set of hydraulic shock absorbers. The underbody of the 3 Series is also covered, which greatly improves its aerodynamics. BMW also engineered the 3 Series to have a 50:50 weight distribution and up to a 50% increase in body rigidity.
Power is provided for by a 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline-4 cylinder gasoline engine that pushes out 156 hp and 250 Nm of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic.
