2022 BMW M340i Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

The performance-oriented 2022 BMW M340i is back for another stint with just a few feature updates. These include various other performance and optional extras, while the leatherette dashboard trim gets sidelined this year. The modest updates put forth turn out to increase the price of the said 2022 M340i sedan, which now starts from an MSRP of $54,700, excluding destination charges. This puts it right in the middle amongst the competition, which includes the Audi S4, the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport, and the Mercedes Benz AMG C43.



BMW has made a strong position in the market with its entry-level sedan, and the M340i takes it a step ahead. The sedan is a perfect blend of power and comfort. Under its hood, a 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 motor is powering the rear wheels, and it is standard. While the optional x-Drive package is an AWD version of it. While this punches out 382 hp, the more powerful BMW M3, with the same powertrain manages to scrape 473 horses.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Apart from the minor reshuffled optional packages on offer, the 2022 M340i gets carried forward into this year. The pricing is expected to increase by a bit more than $1,000. The M340i will come with the same 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 that now only comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The manual gearbox is not available anymore and that may certainly take away from its extreme purists' fanbase. Having said that, even though mechanically similar to the extreme M3, the 2022 M340i fails to put up supreme power figures. The car competes with some equally energized machines which include Mercedes-Benz AMG C43, Audi S4, and Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400.

What is the Price of the 2022 BMW M340i?

The 2022 BMW M340i is set at a starting MSRP of $54,700. This excludes the destination charge of $995.

What is the Release Date of the 2022 BMW M340i?

Having seen previous releases, the 2022 BMW M340i is expected to reach showrooms near you at the earliest by late 2021.


Buying Advice

The M340i is a single trim with a single powertrain option. However, it can be chosen in either an RWD configuration or in an xDrive AWD version powering all four wheels. The M340i is a superb option in the segment as it comes with a powerful 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. There are also many interiors, exterior, performance, and tech options available to equip in the M340i sedan, which makes the deal all the more sweet.

Features
8.0/10

The 2022 BMW M340i comes in a single standalone trim that stands at the top of the 3-series lineup and below the M3, and the newly introduced BMW 330e. The M340i is available in both RWD as well as AWD iterations with the same powertrain configuration. The M340i comes with a 3.0 L Inline-6 under the hood producing 382 hp and 368 lb-ft. The only transmission available is an 8-speed automatic and there is no manual option available.

Coming to the features on point, BMW equips the 2022 M340i with the latest Live cockpit Pro digital instrument cluster, that now comes with in-built navigation. Further various packages are on offer, although for a premium, namely Driving Assistance Professional, High-performance Tire package, and a $1600 Premium package.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

While its remarkable refinement is offset by not-quite-great steering feel, its body is composed on any kind of road, its brakes are strong, and its ride is comfortable for daily chores - Car and Driver

The same 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 motor with the BMW’s legendary TwinPower Turbo technology can be expected under the 2022 M340i's hood, which generates 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft. of torque. The hybrid motor which BMW has dropped for the outgoing M340i is more likely to feature in the upcoming model. BMW is planning to discontinue the manual transmission from the 3-series, which is quite unfortunate for manual lovers, so an 8-speed automatic is the only choice remaining which is likely to be offered with the M340i.

All the power channeled through its 8-speed automatic is supplied to the rear wheels and the RWD can be expected as standard. However, you can also opt for its xDrive package at a price, to get its all-wheels powered. The 8-speed automatic transmission equipped in the M340i is impressively engineered and it delivers superb power at the right times through crisp shifts. The 2021 BMW M340i is a true champion on the performance front and it ticks almost all the boxes delivering an amazon product. The 2022 version is also expected to carry on the goodness with possible improvements. 

All have the same capacity engine; however, the power churned by the Q50 Red Sport is the maximum, but it failed to achieve the quickest quarter-mile. The power from the M340i is quite competitive, which can easily manage its sprint of 0-60 mph and quarter-mile run within 4.2 and 12.9 seconds respectively. It is not the fastest when it comes to outright sprint times, but what minimum it loses out in terms of speed, it contributes to the handling front in a much larger percentage.

The driving experience is one of the major highlights of BMW cars, and with the M340i, this driving pleasure will reach the next level. The sedan with the enthusiast engine also balances its body roll quite well and gives you extra confidence around the corners. And the x-Drive AWD of BMW further helps in better handling. Moreover, there are four driving modes on offer with it from which the ‘Sport+’ mode will better suit you if you plan to burn the tracks.

The M340i also can be set up with an Adaptive M Suspension for better handling and ride comfort along with the M Sport Brakes which provides better-stopping power. The M340i is one of the most exceptional handling sedans in the segment offering impressive driving dynamics. BME even offers a cooling and high-performance tire package that enhances the cooling performance of the vehicle thereby delivering better performance. Overall the M340i is a sure winner in the handling segment.

Fuel Economy
7.5/10

The current 2021 BMW M340i model is delivering an EPA rating of 23 miles per gallon of fuel in the city while providing 32 on the highways, which is more or less the same for the upcoming 2022 M340i model as well. However, with its AWD variant, you can expect a drop of 1-2 MPG on both driving scenarios. With the same engine, nothing different can be expected on the gas mileage front. It comes with a 15.6-gallon fuel capacity which because it has good MPG figures, delivers a respectable range.

An excellent refined motor of the M340i can be seen by glancing at the above table. The MPG figures of 22 in the city, 32 on the highway, and a combined value of 26 are the highest among the competitors. Moreover, the tank is of adequate size, which takes care of its range very well. This will be boosted much further if a hybrid option is available. The Infiniti Q50 Red Sport has the largest tank, which obviously allows it to have a much better range. Mercedes offers the least efficient MPG figures among the competition.

Interior
8.0/10

As always, it aims to balance performance, luxury, and technology to provide drivers with a signature BMW experience - Motortrend

BMW always provides a cabin that is driver-centric with high-quality materials and oodles of tech on offer. And the upcoming model doesn’t likely feature any major overhaul. As you open the door, it welcomes you with an M-performance aluminum scuff plate, and the interior totally signifies a performance car. The dashboard has an elegant design structure with five different trims available to choose from according to your likes, including Aluminum Tetragon and Open Pore Wood Oak Grain trims. The upholstery comes as standard in Sensatec leather whereas various options of Vernasca leather are also available.

The center area with the infotainment panel on the top is faced towards the driver at just a perfect angle, which makes it quite easy to browse. The 3-spoke steering is nicely wrapped in black leather with the M-badging at the bottom. However, you can find leathers all over the cabin. The sport bucket seats at the front feature 14-way power adjustments with 2 memory functions, and have excellent bolsters. Coming to the rear, this seat can easily accommodate 2 adults and a youngster in the middle, with an adequate amount of room for all. It also features an automatic 3-zone climate control system including micro-filter and automatic air recirculation.

Some truly standout features on its interior are:

  • Aluminum accents on dash and door trim.
  • 14-way power-adjustable sport bucket seats
  • Standard Sensatec leather upholstery
  • Optional Vernasca leather upholstery in different color options
  • Cabin ambient lighting.
  • Heated and ventilated front seats.
  • Fully digital MID with different appearances for different drive modes.
  • 3-spoke power telescopic, leather-wrapped, multi-function M sport steering wheel

BMW has upgraded its infotainment panel significantly in the last few years, which now looks more stylish with a lot of angled structure instead of a simple rectangular design which many automakers do. A 10.25-inch touchscreen display featuring the BMW iDrive 7.0 system is placed on top of the dash that is paired with a HiFi Sound System with a 205-watt digital amplifier and 10 speakers, which can also be upgraded to a 16-speakers Harman/Kardon premium audio system at extra cost.

Some of the noticeable features of its infotainment are:

  • Live Cockpit Professional with a 12.3" digital instrument cluster
  • 10.25" central information display
  • 16-speakers Harman/Kardon sound system (optional)
  • Gesture controls
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • SiriusXM with 360L + 1-year all-access subscription
  • Voice command recognition feature
Exterior
9.0/10

The 2022 BMW M340i won’t likely feature any major modifications with its exterior. It looks elegant with just a required amount of cuts and creases, and the air vents moreover add to the impressive design silhouette. The BMW’s signature kidney grille now comes with tri-arrow design elements and has active opening and closing when required. The headlights are very sleek and sharp with BMW’s laser light setup which adds to its aggression. 

Coming to the wheels, it features 18-inches M-performance alloys in the gun-metal finish with all-season tires that have a significantly low profile, and the M-performance brake calipers truly stand out. The side and rear-end are perfectly aligned with the front. From the rear as well, it looks quite aggressive. The bottom has thick black cladding which incorporates two exhausts at both ends. The same design philosophy is most likely to be in the upcoming model as well. Overall the M340i is a beautiful-looking sedan.

All the specs of the M340i are very similar to the others, but the ground clearance of 5.4-inches offered by it is the highest among all, which will certainly help in bumpy roads. The M340i is also the heaviest among the competition, but the difference is not very significant. All of the cars in the comparison are on par with each other when it comes to exterior beauty.

Notable exterior features of the 2022 M340i include-

  • 18" M Double-spoke bi-color orbit grey wheels, style 790M
  • 2-way power glass moonroof with "one-touch" operation and power interior sunshade
  • Aerodynamic Kit
  • M rear spoiler
  • 11 wheels options of 18 and 19-inch sizes
Safety
8.5/10

The 2022 BMW M340i is equipped with an Active Protection System that detects chances for a probable accident. The system automatically pretends the safety belts, closes the windows and moonroof, and activates post-crash braking. The system also includes Fatigue and Focus Alert features. It also comes with an impact sensor that disconnects the alternator, fuel pump, and starter from the battery; automatically unlocks doors. The system also turns on hazard and interior lights. Coming onto the crash tests, the 2021 M340i was awarded the "Top Safety Pick" honor from IIHS and a 5-star rating from NHTSA. The same can be expected from the 2022 MY as well.

Further, the M340i sedan is also equipped with a set of safety features including the following ones-

  • Available M Sport brakes
  • Active Guard
  • Frontal Collision Warning
  • Automatic City Collision Mitigation and Braking
  • BMW Assist eCall includes Emergency Request (SOS button) and Enhanced Automatic Collision Notification
  • LED Headlights with Cornering Lights
  • Automatic high beams
  • Driver Monitoring Alert
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Final Verdict

The extreme 2022 BMW M340i will definitely fulfill your demand for both performance and comfort. The giant 3.0L turbocharged Inline-6 motor is capable of achieving 0-60 mph within 4.2 seconds and the structure gives a promising handling and driving experience. It offers all the features in the cabin that one would expect from it. And the exterior design philosophy just catches your attention. However, with the 2022 model, we can’t expect any major overhaul but it is well worth waiting for it.
