These new prices represent rises of $320 and $370, respectively, but include more standard equipment, such as a 6.5-inch center display with iDrive controller, eight-speed automatic transmission, automatic start/stop, brake energy regeneration, Bluetooth/USB/iPod connectivity, and more.
We'll be hopping behind the wheel of the new 3-Series next week, but in the mean time, we already know the key stats: the 328i is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine good for 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque; the 335i rates at 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque with its turbocharged 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder.
Those power figures mean the 328i gets to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, while the 335i takes just 5.4.
BMW hasn't yet released pricing figures for the various lines of the new 3-Series, however. We expect more detail to come as the February 2012 on-sale date draws nearer.
