2017 Bmw M3 Redesign, Engine and Exterior. The 2017 year brings an innovation for the BMW’s M3 model which will be released with a light refresh. The thing is that the sixth-generation of the 3 Series model received a complete overhaul for its 2012 model year, leaving the M3 sidelined for the time being.
It was only until 2015 that the model received an updated and was even fitted with a V8 engine to boot. The 2017 only provides a light updated for the M3 brand and is a design which will build up upon the new body that the previous M3 vehicle has already received.
The car was seen in some spy photos during this year and its testing and it was immediately perceived that there were going to be some large body changes. The truth was far from the previous perceived assumptions as the car has only been fitted with a minor update, making the hype about the camouflage only a tactic to attract attention and raise the population about the vehicle.

The hype around a newly designed M3 vehicle was simply blown out beyond proportions. The car does get updated but it does not go further than swapping the lights. The thing is that the previous model that was completely redesigned for the 2015 year was more than good. The M3 is perhaps one of the most handsome sleeper cars and one which has gained a lot of praise for its previous redesign of the car. As there was not much needed to tamper with the car, BMW has decided only to add a different kind of a design to the lights and incorporate the new lighting technology.
After the announcement that the BMW was going to relay release its M3 vehicle for the 2017 model year, there were a lot of questions asked. We will answer some of the questions through this review and also provide you with a set of pictures that will help you understand the car better. The price was also released almost immediately after the initial announcement and the first numbers say that BMW is going to raise the price of the new vehicle.
The updated receives the new headlights which are almost the same as in the BMW 3 Series car. It receives LED strips with twin lights which have been slightly removed or set apart from each other. Despite the fact that the taillights have also received an LED update there really isn’t any grand difference between the previous model. This time there are some new color choices that have been included. The previous model has introduced Tanzanite Blue Metallic and Azurite Schwarz Metallic, which still remain for this year, and add the Smoked Topaz Metallic and Champagne Quartz Metallic for as new color schemes.
2017 BMW M3 Engine
Under the hood this time the whole powertrain gets to be carried over from the 2015 model. This means that the 2017 BMW M3 will also use the 3.0-liter inline-six engine which produces 425 horsepower between 5,500 and 7,300 rpm, and 406 pound-feet of torque from 1,850 rpm to 5,500 rpm. As the previous one, it combines with a six-speed manual transmission as a standard option and uses a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as an optional choice. The manual transmission enables the M3 to reach 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds, while the DCT enables a speed burst of 3.9 seconds. The top speed is set at 155 mph. The EPA ratings for the manual gearbox are measured at 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, while the second gear shifter choice enables 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.
