The M3 now has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine that's now available in three different power outputs. The base rear-wheel-drive model, the only version with a six-speed manual gearbox, maintains its 473 horsepower. The rear-wheel-drive Competition variant also retains its 503 horsepower. The all-wheel-drive M3 Competition xDrive sees a boost from 503 to 523 horsepower, thanks to a reconfigured engine management system.

The M3’s torque peak is now more accessible, with all 479 pound-feet available from 2750 to 5730 rpm. BMW claims the M3 Competition xDrive can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph, which can be increased to 180 mph with the optional M Driver’s Package.

Visually, the 2025 M3 gets subtle changes. The new headlights feature angular LED elements similar to those on the latest M4, serving as both daytime running lights and turn signals. New forged alloy wheel options are available in silver, and Competition models now have a silver border around their badge.

Inside, the M3 sports there's a redesigned three-spoke leather steering wheel, still featuring the red center marker at the 12 o’clock position but now with a flat-bottomed rim. Drivers can choose Alcantara instead of leather. The updated BMW operating system runs on a curved display with a simplified climate-control interface, and the improved voice assistant can now adjust climate settings. The air vents have also been tweaked for better airflow.

Production of the 2025 BMW M3 starts in July. The rear-wheel-drive model begins at £62,500, while the Competition variant is priced at £65,800, both seeing a £145 increase. The all-wheel-drive Competition xDrive will cost £69,900, up by £950 from 2024. The M3 CS model has been discontinued, with its production ending in the first quarter of this year.

The 2025 BMW M3 continues to evolve, offering enhanced performance and updated features while maintaining the bold design.
