New 2020 BMW M340i getting price hike of 5k above 2018 340i


#1

Safe to say goodbye to sub $400 340s for a while.


#2

Comparing the M340i with similar options to my 2018 340i the price hike will only be $3000. Not too bad with the better engine and suspension vs the F30.


#3

Around $83 more a month on a 36 month lease, pushes that into 500+ lease territories based on recent 340 deals I saw here. But like you said, you get a lot of improvements so probably worth it.


#4

It’s tricky pricing wise because would buyers rather a 3 series sedan (sales of which are at half the level they were, even in 2016) or for a similar price:
- X3 M40i, base price $54,650
- X2 M35i, base price $46,450
Time will tell….


#5

Look at the bright side - higher MSRP means higher discount on sale price, right? Right? :sob:


#6

Hahaha one can dream


#7

Seems to follow the trend of further differentiating the six-cylinder versions as a performance vehicle, rather than just a more powerful version of the same car, and pricing it accordingly. This will compete head to head with Mercedes-AMG C43 and Audi S4.


#8

Extra price means they can just offer more incentives later, built in lease cash!


#9

X2 is not, IMO, at all worthy of being in same sentence as X3.

X2 is based on FWD mini. X3 has proper drivetrain layout, at least.


#10

X2 M35i has X drive as standard?
