The updated BMW 3 Series sedan is the latest to receive the Sport Collection treatment in Australia, which brings “optimised” specification at a more affordable asking price.
The 2024 BMW 330i Sport is set to arrive in Australia next month and is priced at $89,900 drive-away.
For reference, the regular BMW 330i is currently priced at $94,700 before on-road costs.
Even before taking on-road costs into account, the 330i Sport is still considerably more affordable than the full-fat model.
Despite the more affordable price point, the 330i Sport still receives the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine which produces 190kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
This is mated to a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission with drive sent exclusively to the rear wheels.
The 330i Sport gains features including standard metallic paint, electric glass sunroof, heated front seats, and M high-gloss Shadowline with extended contents. These are all locked in various option packages on the regular 330i.
On the other hand the 330i Sport misses out on front cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, Steering and Lane Control Assistant, Crossroads warning, Side Collision Warning, Evasion Aid, surround-view camera, power tailgate, Vernasca leather upholstery, and a Sensatec leatherette-finish instrument panel, compared to the regular 330i.
