2021 BMW M3: Just the Facts

In the 35 years since its introduction, the BMW M3 has become the benchmark for performance and handling among small luxury cars. The muscular cousin of the 2021 BMW 3 Series, the M3 enters its sixth generation with more power and advanced performance technology than ever.

See, the E30 M3 was a two-door coupe, while the new M3 is a four-door sedan. If you want an M3 with two doors, it's called the M4. Like the M3, there's also a fully redesigned 2021 BMW M4 on the way. 

We'll explore what's behind the polarizing face of BMW's newest performance sedan on the following pages.
