The new 2012 BMW 3 Series made its U.S. debut today at the Detroit Auto Show. The midsize sedan will show up in showrooms next in two flavors: the 328i and the more powerful 335i.
The base price of the 2012 328i Sedan is $ 34,900 and the 335i Sedan is $ 42,400. This represents a $ 300 and $ 350 base price increases versus the outgoing model.
The 3 Series now includes standards features such as 6.5” display with iDrive controller, Bluetooth connectivity, USB/iPod interface, 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, Automatic Start/Stop, Dynamic Driving Control with ECO PRO Mode, Brake Energy Regeneration, and a 1” standard wheel size increase.
The Modern Line (ZML) and Luxury Line (ZLL) will sell for an additional $ 2,100 for the 328i and $ 1,400 for the 335i model. The Sport Line (ZSL) will make you spend $ 2,500 for the 328i and $ 1,700 for 335i.
The M Sport Package will be available at launch time as well and will bring the ultimate in sporting makeovers to the new BMW 3 Series. An all-new aerodynamic package for the exterior clearly sets cars specified with this package apart from the base model and the three lines.
