The BMW 3 Series is due for its next full redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities information have actually not yet been announced, however we know that production of the renowned luxury sport sedan will eventually move to a new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The revamped 3 Series will most likely be based upon BMW’s modular platform dubbed CLAR, which means Cluster Architecture. This will permit the automaker to minimize advancement costs using variable sub-modules to underpin several models. Similar moves toward modular platforms have been made by Volkswagen, Toyota and other car manufacturers.
2019 BMW 3-Series Interior
The interior designers likewise appear to have taken a safe technique. While we ‘d have liked to see a big step forward stylistically– there might yet be one regarding color or products– the beneficial ergonomics and stylish look of the existing model in addition to its newer brethren is no bad thing. One can expect that most, if not all, of BMW’s new-fashioned tech and comfort features provided on the 5 will make their way to the 3, such as gesture control, as well as progressed versions of tech and high-end features the 3-series currently offers. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob is located beside an improved console-mounted electric shifter, and that the infotainment screen, likely a touchscreen, now beings in a lower, more available area.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin might look the similar, the bones will be 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 bring back some of its sporting appeal. We just hope that even fundamental versions of the new 3 hew closer to the most recent 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 expected to use a number of turbocharged inline engines globally, consisting of a three-cylinder. The United States market is most likely to stick to a 2.0-liter four in the 330i and a 3.0-liter six producing up to 400 horsepower 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
A main 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 expect the new 3-series to get here in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with pricing near to the current generation. That implies the new sedan will begin in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
