The BMW 3 Series is due for its next full redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities information have actually not yet been announced, but we know 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 most likely be based upon BMW’s modular platform dubbed CLAR, which stands for Cluster Architecture. This will permit the automaker to decrease advancement costs 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 actually taken a safe method. While we ‘d have preferred to see a big step forward stylistically– there might yet be one regarding color or products– the favorable ergonomics and classy appearance of the present model as well as its more recent brethren is no bad thing. One can expect that most, if not all, of BMW’s new-fashioned tech and convenience features provided on the 5 will make their method to the 3, such as gesture control, in addition to progressed versions of tech and high-end features the 3-series already uses. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob lies next to a reshaped console-mounted electric shifter, and that the infotainment screen, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more available location.
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 promises to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of mass, both of which could assist the 3 bring back some of its sporting appeal. We simply hope that even fundamental versions of the new 3 hew closer to the most recent 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 anticipated 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 racer.
2019 BMW 3-Series Release Date and Price
An official release date for the next-generation 3 Series has not yet been announced. At this time, we expect it to go on sale at some point in 2018. We expect the new 3-series to arrive in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with prices near to the present generation. That suggests the new sedan will start in the mid-$30,000 range and rise from there.
