BMW has overhauled its 3 Series sedan and wagon range this week, upgrading specifications and adding new features - while also shuffling the prices of models and option packs.

The changes follow similar revisions to the larger 5 Series and smaller 1 Series families earlier this year, and the announcement last month of local 3 Series GT pricing.

Available from July for Touring wagon and August for the sedan, the changes to the 3 Series include the addition of satellite navigation across the range, and Launch Control for models fitted with the eight-speed sports auto.

Updated Features

BMW has added its Navigation Business package as standard to 316i, 318d, 320i and 320d sedan models, along with 318d and 320i versions of the Touring wagon.

Both versions of the 328i get an upgrade to Navigation Professional, including internet connectivity. The Navigation Professional package now also features a new iDrive controller with touch sensitivity for hand gestures.

The 328i also gets the 'Lines' packages as a no-cost option, including 18-inch wheels, and the same upgrade has been made to the 335i and ActiveHybrid 3 models.

The 335i and ActiveHybrid 3 also benefit from the addition of roller sunblinds to the rear windscreen and rear windows as standard equipment.

Models equipped with the eight-speed Sports Automatic transmission now also get Launch Control as standard.

Lane Departure Warning has been deleted as a standalone option, meaning buyers will need to option the Driving Assistant package to get this feature, along with pedestrian and approach control warning.

Pricing Changes to Options And M Sport, Lines Packages

The Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go has been reduced by $384, but remains unavailable for 316i and 318d models.

Depending on model, the price of BMW's Head-Up Display option has been reduced by up to $300.

The HiFi and harmon/kardon audio systems have been given $460 price reductions, available as an option with the 316i, 318d, 320i and 320d Sedan variants as well as the 318d and 320i Touring models.

All 'Lines' packages are now no-cost options for 328i, ActiveHybrid 3 and 335i sedan models, along with the 328i Touring.

For the 316i and 318d sedan and Touring models, the Lines packages have been reduced by $616.

The M Sport package has been reduced by $615 for 316i and 318d, $500 for the 335i and ActiveHybrid 3, and over $1000 for the 328i.
