BMW is no stranger to making fast and exciting cars. Their M division seriously gives their cars a whole another dimension and uplifts them to a point of legacy and unparalleled superiority. Meet the 2022 BMW M3; Once again with all the power in the world with excellent driving dynamics and driver engagement. RWD and a manual gearbox are standard, without which, the experience would be incomplete. However, it is not only meant to dominate in the track, but it can also transform into a quiet daily driver for your family. 

2022 BMW M3 Dashboard

For 2022 MY, M3 Competition can also be equipped with xDrive system for $4100 USD which is a first. However, you can’t pair it with a manual gearbox. And perhaps the only gripe that anyone would have was that redesigned grille at the front, which looks so out of place in an otherwise strikingly hot sedan. The 2022 M3 doesn’t come cheap and it starts off at a price tag of $70,895. 2022 BMW M3 rivals the likes of Mercedes-AMG C63, Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing.

2022 BMW M3 Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The interior of the 2022 BMW M3 is very modern with strong lines flowing throughout the dashboard. The dash is very striking and very attractive to look at. Also, the interior features quite a few creature comforts that will certainly make your lives easier. The M3 comes adorned in extended Merino leather upholstery which feels quite exquisite. However, those who feel that this is less luxurious can opt for the Yas Marina Blue/Black Merino leather upholstery. There are a whole bunch of color schemes you can choose from, and you can get it for $2,550 extra. Optionally, other than the leather, you can also get the carbon fiber trim for an extra $950. Also, you can get high-gloss finish aluminum fabric, individual open-pored black wood for an additional cost. 

2022 BMW M3 Rear Seats

The 2022 M3 obviously comes with M Sport seats as standard. The driver and front passenger’s seats are both 12-way power-adjustable along with heating function. The seats come with adjustable bolstering as well. Optionally, you can also go for the M Carbon bucket seats, but those come with even heavy bolstering. Also, visibility all around is also great. The rear seats also offer good seating space, however, legroom is a bit limited. Also, the middle seat isn’t ideal for adults anyway. That being said, the interior spacing in the 2022 M3 is decent at best, but not amazing. However, we still think you would be able to take your entire family to the racetrack in this thing without much hassle.

The interiors of these stalwarts are all very spacious in the front row, but the rear row becomes a bit cramped. All of them have nearly identical rear row spacing and none of them are particularly friendly towards taller passengers during longer journeys. However, in terms of overall passenger space, the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio takes the win home but in terms of passenger comfort and premium features, AMG C 63 has the best on offer.

2022 BMW M3 Infotainment

The 2022 M3 is equipped with a 10.25” central touchscreen display that runs on BMW’s iDrive 7.0. As you might have already guessed or heard, the system is fantastic. It is superb in terms of responsiveness and it is very quick to your touch inputs. Not only that, it is also simple and intuitive and very easy to get used to. Other than that, you also get a rotary controller to control the screen or you can control it via your voice, or steering wheel buttons. If you want none of them, you can also get gesture control as an option. You also get a 12.3" digital instrument cluster. 

2022 BMW M3 Infotainment System

Standard features include wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD radio, SiriusXM radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, navigation and BMW TeleServices. Other than these features, you are also greeted with a 16-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system. You also get Artti real-time traffic display.

2022 BMW M3 Cargo Capacity

The 2022 M3 offers 13 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear row, which is decent for a sedan. It isn’t much, by any means, but you can still add small baggage and luggage for a short trip.

2022 BMW M3 Cargo Space

You could also take it golfing, camping and definitely grocery shopping. However, if you require more space, you can just drop the rear seats in a 40/20/40-split and that will open up even more space for you to store your stuff.

The BMW M3 gets one of the best cargo storage, even though it is not a whole lot itself. The AMG C 63 comes close, but Giulia has the most to offer. 2022 CT4-V Blackwing has the least cargo space in the competition.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

Speaking of secondary storage spaces in the M3, both the rows get a pair of cup holders. The door pockets are actually quite wide and they can easily fit your water bottles. Other than that, you get a large center console area for storing stuff along with center armrest storage. The glove box is also decent. 

2022 BMW M3 Creature Comforts

Being a sports sedan, it is actually offering us quite an impressive list of standard creature comforts that will surely make your daily driving easier and more convenient. Some of it includes power adjustable heated sport seats, Multi-zone Climate Control including micro-filter and automatic air recirculation, Multi-color, adjustable ambient lighting, 3-spoke leather-wrapped multi-function M sport steering wheel and remote cargo access. Optional features exclusive to the M3 include ventilated front seats, M carbon-fiber front seats and M seat belts.

Verdict

Yes, definitely. When it comes to the choices of materials and the fit and finish, the 2022 BMW M3 is impeccable. Offering luxury with almost every material, the 2022 M3 stands tall among its opponents. Also, it is the best in its segment when it comes to practicality. However don't expect it to be as practical as a crossover. Overall, the 2022 M3 has an excellent interior and you should definitely check it out.
