The BMW 3 Series is due for its next complete redesign for the 2019 model year. Official information have not yet been revealed, however we know that production of the iconic luxury sport sedan will ultimately shift to a new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The upgraded 3 Series will most likely be based on BMW’s modular platform called CLAR, which stands for Cluster Architecture. This will permit the automaker to decrease advancement expenses using variable sub-modules to underpin several models. Comparable moves toward modular platforms have actually been made by Volkswagen, Toyota and other car manufacturers.
2019 BMW 3-Series Interior
The interior designers also appear to have taken a safe technique. While we ‘d have liked to see a big advance stylistically– there might yet be one regarding color or materials– the beneficial ergonomics and stylish look of the existing model along with its newer brethren is no bad thing. One can anticipate that most, if not all, of BMW’s newfangled tech and convenience features used on the 5 will make their way to the 3, such as gesture control, as well as evolved versions of tech and high-end features the 3-series currently uses. In this prototype, we see that the iDrive knob lies next to an improved console-mounted electric shifter, which the infotainment display, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more accessible location.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin might look the comparable, the bones will be brand-new. The 3-series will ride on BMW’s CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform, which assures to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of gravity, both which could help the 3 restore some of its sporting luster. We just hope that even basic versions of the brand-new 3 hew closer to the latest M5 in that regard rather than the somewhat soft 5-series on which the model is based.
2019 BMW 3-Series Powertrain
The brand-new 3 is expected to offer a number of turbocharged inline engines internationally, consisting of a three-cylinder. The United States market is most likely to stick to a 2.0-liter four in the 330i and a 3.0-liter six producing as much as 400 horse power in the M340i. The six-speed manual and ZF eight-speed automatic most likely will carry over, too. A 330e plug-in hybrid will appear later, as will an eventual M3 racer.
2019 BMW 3-Series Release Date and Price
A main release date for the next-generation 3 Series has not yet been announced. At this time, we anticipate it to go on sale sometime in 2018. We expect the brand-new 3-series to show up in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with prices close to the existing generation. That suggests the new sedan will begin in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
