Time flies very quickly. Here, it would seem that quite recently the fifth generation of a sedan of the third Series E90. This event occurred in 2005. Having survived the facelift model came to 2013, when it was replaced by a modern version of the F30. The new version was distinguished by large size, increased prestige, higher quality throughout. Sedans, station wagons and even long versions of chetyrehdverny produced in so many plants that the model can shamelessly call international by car: Germany, Mexico, South Africa, Egypt, Russia, China, India and even Malaysia.

Does the 3 Series in performance? It is unlikely, because it is the quintessential compact sports sedan that offers a happy thrill in a luxurious cockpit loaded with the latest technologies developed by BMW. Model range models are more diverse than ever, offering a easy-to-use version of the Purse, equipped with frail three-cylinder engine up to a hardcore version of the M3 CS, with limited availability and faster bits. Add into the mix economical 330e plug-in hybrid, and quite possibly, there is a version of 3 series for all.

Perhaps for those who don’t follow the model updates, it may come as a surprise that the first mules of the third version was seen photorename in January 2016.

The study of images allows to draw the following conclusion: sedan followed by a wagon and the sporty M-version will continue to evolve not revolutionary, but evolutionary.

 

And indeed it is. You will be able easily to recognize in the new model G20 3-Series BMW, which you can now notice a sleeker headlights and taillights, increased the “nostrils” of the front radiator brand filesresearch and became even more imposing in its dimensions to the body. It is logical to expect that the wheelbase will also increase compared to the current model and the rear doors will become more elongated in length. A hint of increased comfort for rear passengers.

 

The all-new Third series in 2019 will be based on the CLAR platform from his older brothers. Despite the increased dimensions, the new 3 Series will be a little easier in the current model, thanks to the increased use of aluminum and carbon fiber.
