The BMW 3 Series is due for its next complete redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities details have actually not yet been announced, but we understand that production of the renowned high-end sport sedan will eventually move to a brand-new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The upgraded 3 Series will most likely be based upon BMW’s modular platform dubbed CLAR, which represents Cluster Architecture. This will enable the automaker to decrease development costs using variable sub-modules to underpin multiple models. Similar moves toward modular platforms have actually been made by Volkswagen, Toyota and other car manufacturers.
2019 BMW 3-Series Interior
The interior designers likewise appear to have taken a safe method. While we ‘d have wanted to see a big advance stylistically– there might yet be one regarding color or products– the favorable ergonomics and sophisticated appearance of the existing model in addition to its newer brethren is no bad thing. One can anticipate that most, if not all, of BMW’s popular tech and comfort features offered on the 5 will make their way to the 3, such as gesture control, in addition to evolved versions of tech and high-end features the 3-series currently provides. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob lies next to an improved console-mounted electrical shifter, which the infotainment screen, likely a touchscreen, now beings in a lower, more available place.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin might look the comparable, the bones will be brand-new. The 3-series will ride on BMW’s CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform, which assures to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of mass, both of which might help the 3 restore some of its sporting luster. We simply hope that even standard versions of the new 3 hew closer to the current M5 in that regard instead of the somewhat soft 5-series on which the model is based.
2019 BMW 3-Series Powertrain
The new 3 is anticipated to use a variety of turbocharged inline engines worldwide, consisting of a three-cylinder. The United States market is likely to stick with a 2.0-liter four in the 330i and a 3.0-liter 6 producing approximately 400 horsepower in the M340i. The six-speed manual and ZF eight-speed automated most likely will carry over, too. A 330e plug-in hybrid will appear later, as will an ultimate 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 revealed. At this time, we expect it to go on sale sometime in 2018. We anticipate the new 3-series to show up in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with prices near the current generation. That suggests the brand-new sedan will start in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
