There are some plans concerning the production of the upcoming 2019 BMW 3 Series. There are some interesting facts about this luxury sedan. One of them is the fact that it still remains one of the most popular luxury sedans within its segment. It somehow still dominates the top sales spots although it is also quite disappointing. Its current model doesn’t seem to be satisfactory, since it falls almost within the last places of the car comparisons. And since the new sedan will be dealing with tough competitors like A4 from Audi or Giulia from Alfa Romeo, Beemer has to take up their game. So, what can you expect from the luxury vehicle, anyway?
The Most Likely Scenario
There are still hopes for the 2019 BMW 3 Series, considering that Beemer has done the same extra effort for their 5 Series line. Of course, there isn’t much to expect or guess from the 3 Series, but if what happens to the 5 Series is an indication, you can definitely expect tons of good features for the line.
Some of the updated versions claim that the new 3 Series will be lighter in weight. Beemer is thinking about using a new architecture, the KLAR, which is said to be flexible and better. It has been used for the X3 crossover and the outcome is quite positive. If they are using this platform for the 3 Series, you can be sure that the luxury sedan will have lighter weight. This is an important factor, affecting the fuel efficiency as well as the handling and speed.
Engine and Power
What about engine and speed? The new 2019 BMW 3 Series will be coming with six inline cylinder turbocharged unit that is producing 320 hp of power and 330 Nm of torque. When paired with the weight loss, the new sedan should be faster and more impressive in performance. It is able to reach 60 mph within 5.1 seconds. What about hybrid power? There is a possibility for such arrangement although Beemer doesn’t say anything about it.
For those wanting to have manual transmission, there is a good chance that Beemer provides some of their top picks for you. It won’t be many but it should be enough for those who are into manual control so much.
Be sure that exterior design will be as good as promised, and so is the interior comfort. It is pretty safe to say that there are a lot of promising features to expect from 2019 BMW 3 Series, and hopefully, Beemer stays on the right track.
