Premium price drop: 2022 BMW 1 Series, 2 Series Gran Coupe and 3 Series gain cut-price Sports Collection model grades

All Sports Collection models come as standard with flat black paint.

BMW has added cut-price Sport Collection model grades as permanent additions to its 1 Series hatch, 2 Series Gran Coupe and 3 Series sedan range.

Kicking it off, the 118i hatch is priced from $48,900 drive-away, undercutting the regular 118i hatch that’s priced from $47,900 before on-road costs, which typically adds about $4000 to the price.

Similarly, the 218i Gran Coupe Sport is priced at $53,900 drive-away, representing a saving compared with the regular 218i’s $52,900 before on-road costs price tag.

The Sport swaps out the 118i and 218i’s 18-inch alloy wheels for 17-inch hoops, and adds Sport Line exterior styling flourishes and black non-metallic paint.

The two small-car variants already come with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, the ‘Hey BMW’ Intelligent Personal Assistant, Park Assist, a digital instrument cluster, a suite of driver aids and more.

For the 3 Series, the Sport Collection lowers the price of entry significantly compared with the variants they’re based on.

The 320i Sport is $69,900 drive-away, instead of $71,900 before on road costs, while the 330e plug-in hybrid Sport is $77,900 before on-road costs. That’s about $6000 less than the regular 330e.

Both 3 Series Sport Collection models gain the Sport Line exterior additions, as well as 18-inch wheels, black paint, sports seats, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and more. The 330e also gains a head-up display.

The Sport Collection variants will roll into BMW dealerships by the end of the first quarter of 2022.
