BMW has released official camouflaged photos and video of the 2019 3-Series testing at the Nurburgring ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.
The BMW 3-Series is the core of BMW’s success, even with the proliferation of BMW SUVs, and it’s been struggling to keep at bay competition from Audi and Mercedes recently. But that should change as the 2019 BMW 3-Series arrives at the Paris Motor Show in six weeks time.
Ahead of that official debut, BMW has released photos of the 2019 3-Series testing at the Nurburgring, video of the same and some juicy details on what we can expect. And it all looks very promising.
The new 3-Series will have a lower centre of gravity, wider track, more room, less weight and lots of tricks in its suspension to deliver blatting and cruising in a way no 3-Series has before.
The promise is that, despite the car and suspension being more rigid, new lift-related dampers – fitted as standard across the range – will make the new 3 Series not just more effective when needed but more comfortable when plodding, but there will also be more focused, and lower, M Sport suspension on offer too, and they will also get Variable Sports Steering.
Under the bonnet will be a range of three, four and six cylinder engines – and a hybrid and M3 at some point – with BMW promising the most powerful four-cylinder engine seen in any BMW so far in the 330i.
There’s still six weeks to go before the 2019 BMW 3-Series officially debuts. Expect more detail and teaser between now and then.
