The Redesigned BMW 3 Series continues to test in the streets of Munich, and this new generation of spy photos offers a comprehensive overview of the upcoming upscale sedan. This one also seems to wear sporting parts from the M-Sport catalog.
BMW sticks to the style trend among top-of-the-line German automakers to create a unique form and then adapt it to different vehicles. The result is that the new Redesigned BMW 3 Series looks a lot like the last 5 Series, which looks like the 7 Series. This sedan carries some aggressive M-Sport parts like the intricate shape of the front fascia. The engineers try to hide the upper edges of the grille and the headlights with camouflaged panels, but the parts do not do very well to hide the final pieces underneath.
Inside, the development of the vehicle seems far from over. The digital infotainment display seems fully functional, but its design still seems strange to us. Rather than simply being a rectangular screen, the speedometer and tachometer numbers have their own semicircular sections. A large monitor at the top of the center stack flanks the instruments, and there is a control dial for that on the center console. A nest of exposed rat sons indicates that this 3 series is just a test mule.
Rumor has it that the new Redesigned BMW 3 Series is available with a wide variety of diesel and gasoline engines in Europe, with power ranging from 136 horsepower (101 kilowatts) to 380 horsepower (283 kW). Later, the M3’s range would have a power of about 500 hp (373 kW) from a six-line 3.0-line twin-turbo engine with light hybrid assistance.
The new Series 3 will debut at the Paris Salon in October and will be on sale early 2019.
