Until BMW finally pulls the covers off the all-new M3 later this year, the M340i version will remain the flagship 3-Series for this latest G20-generation.
This particular M340i is the xDrive version, which means that its 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder unit is aided by all-wheel drive, making it noticeably quicker than its rear-wheel driven counterpart. Pricing in the U.S. for a 2020 M340i xDrive starts from $56,000.
As the BMW sales rep in the video explains, opting for this type of paint means having to wait an additional 6 to 8 weeks (on top of the regular build time), at least in the UK, which is where the car was commissioned. Then there’s the price of the Nardo Grey hue, setting you back roughly £4,500 ($5,265).
The car also boasts various M Performance bits, the Shadowline treatment and black wheels, all of which work in contrast to the body color. Going by spec alone, this is probably an even nicer 3-Series than that Frozen Dark Grey M340i we showed you last month. But that’s only if you like your sports sedans looking.. sporty.
As for performance, the 2020 BMW M340i xDrive sends 382 HP and 367 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque to all four wheels, which allows you to rocket from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in as little as 4.1 seconds. The RWD version meanwhile needs 4.4 seconds to hit the same mark.
