BMW’s F30 3 Series gets bigger as an estate

The latest edition of the BMW 3 Series, the F30, has recently been getting quite a lot of praise, an increased interest in its engines, interior and overall presence but little bad press.

For a bit of a change in scenery let’s focus on a little something the 2012 BMW 3 Series doesn’t have. This is obviously, too much space inside or in the boot.

Inside the F30 BMW 3 Series things are less simple to describe than that. There’s a choice between three trim levels known as Sport Line, Modern Line and Luxury Line, together with a host of amazing optional extras.

There is no surprise that the Germans from BMW decided to reveal the new 3 Series Sedan fitted with the M Sport Package immediately after the introduction of the third-generation of the BMW 3 Series, also known as F30. Of course, the M Sport Package brings only few aesthetic improvements while the engine range remains untouched. At the exterior, the new BMW 3 Series with the M Sport Package will feature new 18-inch alloy wheels along revised front bumper, rear diffuser and tailpipes.

A closer look at the F30 BMW 3 Series’ interior

The recently unveiled 2012 BMW 3 Series is a very important car on a global level and to some extend to just about all petrolheads but it’s far more important to us and the Bavarians.

According to their press release, the F30 BMW 3 Series is better in every way, which means, better engines, better looks, better efficiency and a better interior.

The latter is what I’d like to focus on for now. Much like the F10 BMW 5 Series “borrowed” technology from the bigger brother, the same has happened with the equipment on the 2012 3 Series.
