The BMW 3 Series is due for its next full 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 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 dubbed CLAR, which stands for Cluster Architecture. This will enable the car manufacturer to reduce advancement expenses using variable sub-modules to underpin multiple models. Comparable moves toward modular platforms have actually been made by Volkswagen, Toyota and other automakers.
2019 BMW 3-Series Interior
The interior designers also appear to have taken a safe technique. While we ‘d have preferred to see a huge advance stylistically– there might yet be one regarding color or products– the beneficial ergonomics and sophisticated appearance of the existing model along with its newer brethren is no bad thing. One can anticipate that most, if not all, of BMW’s contemporary tech and convenience features offered on the 5 will make their method to the 3, such as gesture control, in addition to developed versions of tech and high-end features the 3-series already provides. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob is located beside a reshaped console-mounted electrical shifter, which the infotainment display, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more available area.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin may look the similar, the bones will be brand-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 of which could help the 3 restore some of its sporting appeal. We simply hope that even fundamental versions of the brand-new 3 hew closer to the current M5 because regard rather than the somewhat soft 5-series on which the model is based.
2019 BMW 3-Series Powertrain
The brand-new 3 is expected to use a number of turbocharged inline engines worldwide, including a three-cylinder. The United States market is likely to stick to a 2.0-liter four in the 330i and a 3.0-liter 6 producing as much as 400 horse power in the M340i. The six-speed manual and ZF eight-speed automated likely will rollover, too. A 330e plug-in hybrid will appear later on, as will an eventual 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 expect it to go on sale at some point in 2018. We expect the brand-new 3-series to show up in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with pricing near the existing generation. That indicates the brand-new sedan will start in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
