The BMW 3 Series is due for its next complete redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities information have not yet been announced, but we understand that production of the renowned high-end sport sedan will eventually shift to a new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The revamped 3 Series will most likely be based upon BMW’s modular platform called CLAR, which stands for Cluster Architecture. This will enable the car manufacturer to reduce advancement costs by utilizing variable sub-modules to underpin numerous models. Similar approach modular platforms have been made by Volkswagen, Toyota and other car manufacturers.
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 advance stylistically– there may yet be one concerning color or materials– the beneficial ergonomics and stylish 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 gimmicky tech and convenience features used on the 5 will make their method to the 3, such as gesture control, in addition to progressed versions of tech and luxury features the 3-series already uses. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob is located beside a reshaped console-mounted electrical shifter, which the infotainment display screen, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more available location.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin might look the comparable, the bones will be new. The 3-series will ride on BMW’s CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform, which guarantees to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of gravity, both which could assist the 3 bring back a few of its sporting luster. We just hope that even standard versions of the new 3 hew closer to the current M5 in that regard instead of the rather soft 5-series on which the model is based.
2019 BMW 3-Series Powertrain
The new 3 is expected to provide a variety of turbocharged inline engines internationally, including 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 6 producing up to 400 horsepower in the M340i. The six-speed handbook and ZF eight-speed automatic likely will rollover, too. A 330e plug-in hybrid will appear later on, as will an ultimate M3 hot rod.
2019 BMW 3-Series Release Date and Price
An official release date for the next-generation 3 Series has actually not yet been announced. At this time, we anticipate it to go on sale at some point in 2018. We expect the new 3-series to get here in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with rates near the existing generation. That means the new sedan will begin in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
