BMW 3 Series pricing and trim changes.

The 2014 BMW 3 Series gains some more standard equipment for the new model year, but also drops one of its previous trim levels. Going forward, the 2014 BMW 3 Series will no longer offer the “Modern Line” trim, leaving just the Sport Line, Luxury Line, and M Sport trims.
New standard equipment across all versions of the 2014 BMW 3 Series includes a sport leather-wrapped steering wheel, dark burled walnut wood trim, BMW TeleServices, and BMW Assist eCall. The iDrive infotainment system has been upgraded to the latest software version and now has a touchpad controller for “writing” letters and numbers. On Sport Line cars, the Dakota leather Everest Grey option is discontinued while Fineline Anthracite wood trim becomes a no-cost option.
Pricing for the 2014 BMW 3 Series starts at $33,675 (including a $925 destination charge) for the 320i sedan, which has a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine rated for 180 hp. The all-wheel-drive 320i xDrive costs $35,675. The 328i sedan, which has a 240-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four engine, starts at $38,225 with rear-wheel drive and $40,225 with xDrive. The 335i sedan, which uses a 300-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine, costs $44,325 while the xDrive version is $46,325.
The 2014 BMW 328d sedan, which has a turbodiesel engine rated for 32/45 mpg (city/highway), costs $39,525 with rear-wheel drive and $41,525 with xDrive. The 328d wagon, available only with xDrive, costs $43,875. The ActiveHybrid 3, which is rated for mpg, costs $50,825.
BMW also sells the 3 Series as a traditional station wagon, called the Sport Wagon, and as the Gran Turismo model. Buyers will pay $42,375 for the 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Sports Wagon. The 328i xDrive Gran Turismo is $42,375 and the 335i xDrive Gran Turismo costs $46,775.
Production of the BMW 3 Series coupe ended in June as the model will be replaced by the 2014 BMW 4 Series coupe. BMW will stop building the 3 Series convertible this month and replace it with the 2014 BMW 4 Series convertible.
