2011 BMW 3-Series Coupe and Convertible Facelift

Bavarian automaker has released its lightly facelifted 2011 3-Series Coupe and Convertible models, which receive some minor cosmetic touches and updated powerplants.

The most notable is a widened kidney grille, reshaped LED headlamps, front and rear bumpers with restyled lower fascias, new exterior mirrors and finally, reworked tail light cluster with a new color scheme.

The only change in the cabin concerns the convertible models and the use of sun-reflective technology to mitigate temperatures on leather seating, armrest surfaces, headrests, and gear shifter.

In U.S. the 2011 3-Series Coupe and Convertible models will be offered once again in two flavors, the 328i and 335i.

The 2011 335i is fitted with Bavarian new twin scroll single turbocharged 3.0-liter straight six, designated N55, that replaces the previous model’s N54 twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight six.

The rear-wheel drive 335i Coupe and Convertible accelerate from 0 – 60 mph in just 5.3 secs and 5.5 secs, respectively, when equipped with a six speed manual gearbox.

The all-wheel drive 335i xDrive coupe is slightly faster at 5.2 secs.

The 328i’s 230 hp, 200 lb-ft, 3.0-liter inline-6 engine has been carried over unchanged from the 2010 model.

In the U.S. and Canada, the 2011 3 Series Coupe and Convertible models will arrive to the BMW’s dealerships in Spring 2010, with pricing set to be announced closer to the on-sale date.

  1. The 3 Series coupe will now be offered with xDrive all-wheel drive, while the 3 Series convertible gets a new solar reflective leather upholstery thatBMW claims helps keep seat temperatures down when the lid is open.
