2019 BMW 3-Series
The BMW 3 Series is due for its next complete redesign for the 2019 model year. Authorities information have actually not yet been announced, however we understand that production of the renowned high-end sport sedan will eventually shift to a new factory in Mexico by 2019.
2019 BMW 3-Series Redesign
The upgraded 3 Series will probably be based on BMW’s modular platform dubbed CLAR, which means Cluster Architecture. This will permit the automaker to lower development costs using variable sub-modules to underpin multiple models. Comparable approach 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 approach. While we ‘d have wanted to see a big advance stylistically– there might yet be one concerning color or materials– the favorable ergonomics and classy appearance of the existing model in addition to its more recent brethren is no bad thing. One can anticipate that most, if not all, of BMW’s gimmicky tech and convenience features used on the 5 will make their way to the 3, such as gesture control, along with evolved versions of tech and luxury features the 3-series already provides. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob is located beside an improved console-mounted electric shifter, which the infotainment screen, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more available place.
2019 BMW 3-Series Platform
While the skin may look the comparable, the bones will be new. The 3-series will ride on BMW’s CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform, which promises to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of gravity, both of which could help the 3 restore some of its sporting appeal. We simply hope that even basic versions of the new 3 hew closer to the most recent M5 because 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 number of turbocharged inline engines internationally, including 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 six producing up to 400 horsepower in the M340i. The six-speed handbook and ZF eight-speed automated most likely will carry over, 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 at some point in 2018. We anticipate the new 3-series to get here in the middle of this year as a 2019 model, with rates close to the present generation. That indicates the new sedan will begin in the mid-$30,000 range and increase from there.
