After a lot of speculations, spy photos and renderings, we finally see the sixth generation of the BMW 3 Series without any camouflage. The new BMW 3 Series is also known as F30 and comes to continue a successfully story written by the previous models, vehicles sold in more than 12 million units since 1975. In terms of dimensions, the new BMW 3 Series is slightly bigger than its predecessor with a 50 mm longer wheelbase for a total of 2,8 meters. According to the company, the increased dimensions will provide more legroom and headroom for the passengers.
The German engineers also managed to make the new 3 Series around 40 kilograms lighter which will slightly improve the performance.
At launch, the new BMW 3 Series F30 will be available with a total of four engines. We talk about two petrol and two diesel TwinPower turbocharged engines. The BMW 328i will get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit developing 240 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque while the 335i version benefits from a more powerful 306-horsepower unit.
On the other hand, there are two turbodiesel engines developing 163 horsepower for BMW 320d EfficientDynamics and the BMW 320d with 184 ponies. More details about the engine range, trim levels and pricing will be available soon.
