2012 BMW 3 Series (F30) undisguised

The new BMW 3 Series sedan is undoubtedly very close to debut in front of the audience, new photos with the German model surfacing, this time, without any camouflage layers. Actually, the new BMW 3 Series (F30) is scheduled to enter production somewhere in November this year while it should see the model on streets next year. In terms of appearance, the new 3 Series generation showcases an evolved design with influences from the new 5 Series F10 generation.

Talking about engines, BMW most likely will reveal the new 3 Series initially with two choices, the 328i powered by a four-cylinder turbo unit and the 335i model benefiting from a more powerful six-cylinder turbo engine.

    I own a BMW E90 325i and was wondering what will happen to its 6 cylinder engine. I mean if the 328i is four cylinders turbocharged then what happens to the 325i? Will it come with four cylinder engine too? Is it turbocharged? or will it remain with the 6 cylinders and turbocharged. Personally the sound of a 6 cylinder engineer of the 325i excites me big time.

    Please if there is a way for me to know these info update me because I am budgeting for the F30 325i….

    Sir, I think you may find the 325i will go. There will be the 318i, 320i 323i and 328i will all be powered by 4 cylinder engines (1.6 for 318 and 2.0 for the others)
    I understand that the 323d and 325d may have 6 cylinder but BMW are looking at making the next 3 series the most fuel efficient which calls for smaller turbocharged engines.
