Default The Six-Cylinder 2020 BMW M340i Costs a Lot More Than the Four-Cylinder 3-series

2020 BMW M340i Pricing M-Tweaked Six-Cylinder 3-series
Pricing for the new 2020 BMW M340i starts at $54,995, a jump of $5050 compared with its predecessor, the 2018 340i.
The M340i model, which comes standard with some performance-enhancing equipment, is now the only way to get a six-cylinder version of the 3-series in the U.S.
Although the new 2019 330i model with a turbocharged inline-four is already on sale, the M340i won't arrive for a few more months.

There's still going to be a bit of a wait for the new-generation BMW M3 to arrive, but the next best thing is almost here: the M340i. This new model is now the only way to get a 3-series with an inline-six in the United States, and it comes with standard performance kit for a base price of $54,995, which is nearly $14,000 higher than the base four-cylinder 330i model.

The M340i comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with a healthy 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, and an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. All-wheel drive is a $2000 option, and a limited-slip rear differential is standard. Suspension tweaks include stiffer springs, a 0.4-inch-lower ride height, and more wheel camber. It's visually differentiated from the 330i thanks to different wheel designs, plenty of M badges, and gray trim for the mirrors, grille, and other exterior pieces. Interior tweaks include an M steering wheel, aluminum trim, and sport seats.

2020 BMW M340i xDrive

There are plenty of options available for the M340i, including a $1500 package that adds 19-inch wheels and staggered-width summer tires, various Driving Assistance packages, and luxury options including heated seats and steering wheel, a power trunklid, and laser headlights. With all the boxes checked, we loaded up an M340i xDrive past $69,000, which is a bit crazy considering that the outgoing M3 starts at $68,445.

BMW says the M340i arrives in the U.S. this spring, so look for it to hit dealerships at some point over the next few months.

M340i is pretty much in line w/ a loaded C43. BMW had a lot of tech features to add to catch the competition.

manual trans gives you zero credit even though automatic usually costs lots more. One way to kill or dissuade manuals. If your paying the up charge for auto then might well take it

Reality is at some point those who want a manual will have to pay extra for it, which I would be willing to do if it's the only way to get 3 pedals in certain vehicles.
