The BMW 3 Series is due for its next full redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities information have actually not yet been announced, however we understand that production of the renowned luxury sport sedan will ultimately shift to a new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The upgraded 3 Series will more than likely be based on BMW’s modular platform called CLAR, which stands for Cluster Architecture. This will permit the automaker to reduce development expenses by utilizing variable sub-modules to underpin multiple models. Comparable approach modular platforms have actually been made by Volkswagen, Toyota and other automakers.
2019 BMW 3-Series Interior
The interior designers also appear to have actually taken a safe approach. While we ‘d have preferred to see a big step forward stylistically– there may yet be one concerning color or products– the beneficial ergonomics and classy look of the present model in addition to its newer brethren is no bad thing. One can expect that most, if not all, of BMW’s new-fashioned tech and comfort features offered on the 5 will make their method to the 3, such as gesture control, as well as evolved versions of tech and high-end features the 3-series currently offers. In this prototype, we see that the iDrive knob lies next to a reshaped console-mounted electrical shifter, which the infotainment screen, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more accessible area.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin might look the similar, the bones will be new. The 3-series will ride on BMW’s CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform, which promises to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of gravity, both of which could assist the 3 restore a few of its sporting luster. We simply hope that even basic versions of the brand-new 3 hew closer to the current M5 because regard instead of 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 globally, consisting of a three-cylinder. The United States market is likely to stick with a 2.0-liter 4 in the 330i and a 3.0-liter 6 producing as much as 400 horsepower in the M340i. The six-speed handbook and ZF eight-speed automatic most likely will rollover, too. A 330e plug-in hybrid will appear later, as will an ultimate 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 expect it to go on sale sometime in 2018. We expect the brand-new 3-series to get here in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with pricing near to the present generation. That means the new sedan will start in the mid-$30,000 range and rise from there.
