The BMW 3 Series is due for its next complete redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities information have actually not yet been revealed, but we understand that production of the renowned luxury sport sedan will eventually move to a new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The upgraded 3 Series will probably be based on BMW’s modular platform called CLAR, which stands for Cluster Architecture. This will allow the automaker to decrease development costs by using variable sub-modules to underpin multiple 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 likewise appear to have actually taken a safe method. While we ‘d have liked to see a big step forward stylistically– there might yet be one relating to color or materials– the favorable ergonomics and stylish appearance of the present model in addition to its more recent brethren is no bad thing. One can expect that most, if not all, of BMW’s gimmicky tech and comfort features used on the 5 will make their method to the 3, such as gesture control, as well as evolved versions of tech and luxury features the 3-series currently offers. In this prototype, we see that the iDrive knob lies beside an improved console-mounted electric shifter, which the infotainment screen, likely a touchscreen, now beings in a lower, more accessible area.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin may look the comparable, the bones will be 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 mass, both which might help the 3 bring back some of its sporting appeal. We just hope that even fundamental versions of the new 3 hew closer to the most recent M5 because regard rather than the rather soft 5-series on which the model is based.
2019 BMW 3-Series Powertrain
The new 3 is anticipated to provide a variety of turbocharged inline engines globally, consisting of a three-cylinder. The United States market is likely to stick to a 2.0-liter 4 in the 330i and a 3.0-liter six producing up to 400 horse power in the M340i. The six-speed manual and ZF eight-speed automatic likely will carry over, too. A 330e plug-in hybrid will appear later, as will an ultimate M3 racer.
2019 BMW 3-Series Release Date and Price
An official release date for the next-generation 3 Series has actually not yet been revealed. At this time, we anticipate it to go on sale sometime in 2018. We expect the new 3-series to show up in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with rates near the existing generation. That indicates the new sedan will start in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
