New BMW 3 Series Coming with Rich-Feature & Rich-Technology
2019 BMW 3 Series – The next generation will be based on new CLAR platform of BMW with its lightweight and scalable architecture that also comes with the 5 Series, 7 Series and also X3 Series. If we make a comparison, then this could be lighter than the current F30-gen car which is rumored to be 40 – 100 kg lighter.
Hence, we expect that the new series can be bigger with more luxury design and sophisticated feature. We can break it down in the following article. Let’s start with exterior element!
2019 BMW 3 Series Exterior
Speaking about the exterior, according to the front end of the prototype, it seems there are LED daytime form that mirrors a lighting cluster which is found in the latest 5 Series.

There is also another similarity between this new next-gen 3 Series and 5 Series. Besides the weight reductions around 88 pounds, this is claimed to bring an improvement in stability. Additionally, it is expected to come with a bigger trunk that allows the passengers to bring more luggage.

There are some features to underline, including active steering, mechanical torque vectoring, an adaptive suspension that will help the power distribution to all wheels.
If you wish a spacious cabin, this new generation of 3-Series brings a dramatic look compared to the current F30 car. Besides, there is also interesting new dashboard with a new feature of the iDrive controller, an electric parking brake, shift lever, and also gauge cluster.
According to leaked photos, the three new Series come with digital gauges which are also in concept to the BMW 8 Series. So this is pretty exciting to wait for.
However, there are still some essential features for the 3 Series with the analog instrument with digital screen bringing the ‘Black Panel’ technology.

Besides, there is an improvement for the turbo blow pressure up to 2500 bar and also particulate filter to be added to the gasoline versions. For the diesel part, it will get AdBlue tank and catalytic converter as well.
Anyway, we don’t have a high expectation for the four-cylinder gas engines as this might only come with a few minus or plus horsepower. For its base models, it will rely on the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with around 180 horsepower. And, the 330i models will come with 250 ponies.

Anyway, we have another good news with the introduction of an electric version which might be the best competitor for Tesla Model 3. Let’s hope it can have more than 200 miles.
