BMW Prices Heading Up Slightly, New 3 Series to Start at $35,795

#BMW, #535i

BMW is ringing in 2012 by increasing the prices on all its models, including a modest jump for the new 2012 BMW 3 Series, so now would be a good time to bite the bullet on that 535i GT you’ve been lusting after if saving a few bucks is high on your wish list.

For starters, the destination charge is going up from $875 to $895. From there, BMW is applying what they call a “modest inflationary price increase” on all models. In total, the MSRP jump will range from $170 to 370. For example the entry-level 128i coupe, which now costs $31,925 (including destination), will set you back $32,095 once the New Year arrives, an increase of $170. On the higher end of the spectrum is the BMW X5 M, which will command $370 more from your wallet ($87,775 to $88,145).

Also announced today was the official price for the all-new 2012 BMW 3 Series. According to BMW, the base model 2012 328i sedan will start at $35,795 (including destination), while the 2012 335i will set you back $43,295. Again, modest is the key word here when compared to the outgoing models, which were just $320 and $370 cheaper, respectively.

Not a bad deal considering all the new goodies like the sharper sheetmetal, along with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and Brake Energy Regeneration – both of which help to improve fuel efficiency. Like we stated in our recent drive of the new 3 Series, the on sale date is scheduled for February 2012 with subsequent variants to follow throughout the year.
