Some News and Spy Photos of 2019 BMW 3 Series

The newest, next-generation 2019 BMW 3 Series is in the midst of testing the car in cold weather conditions. The vehicle was spotted and the spy photos quickly resealed so we have a potential depiction of how would the future 3 Series potentially look like. Even though much of the car remains cladded in camo there is a lot that can be seen and speculated about the car. The newest sedan version is going to substitute the present F30 model which rose back in 2011.

There is a difference of what we hope the car might look like and what we will actually get, but as we were able to learn much of the desired changes are going to be implemented. The 2019 3 Series version will come with an update in style, lower weight, more power, different dimensions, new autonomous driving fears, and of course an M-style inspired performance.

The need to create a 2019 BMW 3 Series model is actually more than necessary to do. The 3 Series was considered a giant in the industry and quite a well-orientated sedan which brought much of the market to its knees. But those days are long past because the competition has been gaining paste and managed to takeover something that once was the domain of the 3 Series. The new version 2019 BMW 3 Series is supposed to bring the vehicle on track and keep the competing vehicles at bay.

When is the Release Date of the 2019 BMW 3 Series Expected?

The new model 2019 BMW 3 Series will be released in a couple of years. There is still time to speculate about this car and a lot of it still has to be confirmed. One of them is the release date as well. There is no telling when the model will make its debut but we are hoping for a swift resolution that will bring the model to us by late 2018.

What Price are we Getting?

In order to stay competitive, the new 2019 BMW 3 Series cannot afford to raise the price so much. Although the vehicle seems like a very good prospect which would probably attract the audiences through its immense array of luxury and accessories a high price will drive them away just the same. The current assumption is that they need to keep the starting trim at $34,000, while a price of $45,000 is expected for the mid-range models, and the top tier vehicles will go all the way to $66,000.

Not a Specifically Extensive Exterior Update

Even with all the camo which currently covers the 2019 BMW 3 Series, it is more than certain that this is a BMW vehicle. It has all the necessary features of one which are hard to look past. The front end features a trademark BMW fascia which comes with the expected kidney grille and the usual sporty lines. The low-and-wide stance is achieved through the addition of a drawn-out lower intake which is longer this time while the LED headlight additions seem to draw back a bit further into the fender part. The overhand upfront is short while in the back the LED taillights have a circular motion and the rear end is concluded with a dual exhausts.

As for the newly added pieces, none of them actually stand out so much. The shape and styling looks pretty much the same as it did before, but we do notice some creases which look significantly crisper and a styling which invokes aggressiveness with the tendency to reduce the drag coefficient to much as possible. The model will also come in the standard body styles that it did before with the offered sedan and wagon versions and the unforgettable four-door coupe Gran Turismo.

More Room on the Inside

There are going to be some very apparent changes for the interior of the 2019 BMW 3 Series model. The part that is being rumored the most is that the car is supposed to have more room on the interior. Combine this with more luxury and added materials for the inside and we get a well ordered vehicle. The infotainment is also going to be expanded with various ways that you can connect your smartphone with the car, a head-up display, and a big touchscreen. Also offered is going to be the next-generation version of the BMW’s iDrive which is a vehicle control system. On the console at the steering wheel you will see digital instrumentation and voice recognition systems.

One of the most exciting pieces of technology which is being added is the newest gesture control, which is already used for the 7 Series. Based on what was displayed at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, they are going to develop this technology even further and make it available for this vehicle and its future incarnation. This technology will allow you to perform certain tasks within your car just by merely making hand signals and gestures which will turn them on or off.

Drivetrain Possibility

Something that will be certain for the 2019 BMW 3 Series is the addition of a diverse array of engines, meaning that both the gasoline and diesel ones are available and that hybrid models are going to make it in this seas and they all come with turbochargers. We start with the 1.5-liter three-cylinder which makes 135 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of twist, but this one might not be offered for the US market although it has great fuel economy. But the audiences in the US will be able to use the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinders and 3.0-liter six-cylinders, which are getting large updates. The power of the 320i might enhance to 200 horsepower while the mid 340i can go all the way up to 320 horsepower or even 350 horsepower. The racer ready M3 version will use a six-cylinder engine which will help it get to around 500 horsepower with the added updates.

Some Safety Additions

With the latest 2019 BMW 3 Series coming, they have also implied that they will add a number of safety spaces which will support this car. The current use of lane-change assist, automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control and self-paring are already going to be in use but we are expecting something new and exclusive to be added as well.

2019 BMW 3 Series 0-60 mph and Top Speed

As far as the acceleration of the 2019 BMW 3 Series, we are sure that it will get greater. With the updates brought to the engine lineup we are sure to get some faster cars. The current acceleration to 0-60 mph is 5.4 seconds while the top speed amounts to 155 mph. The top speed might stay the same but the acceleration rate might get better with the 2019 version.

New Fuel Economy

We are sure to get updates within the fuel economy rating of the 2019 BMW 3 Series. These will differ from powertrain to powertrain and the inclusion of a hybrid powertrain will also add more suspense and a greater dimension for the car. The EPA stats are not out yet but the current ones measure up to 23 mpg city and 34 mpg highway and those stats will surely change.

Rumors about the Size of the 2019 BMW 3 Series

One of the most noticeable and loudest rumor about the 2019 BMW 3 Series is that it will incorporate some dimensions changes. These are going to be mainly within the wheelbase of the car as it appears that they aim to increase the interior passenger volume and bring more comfort that way. But larger dimensions also mean a larger curb weight, which they are trying to keep down and do not want to add more this way. Although a low curb weight is possible with the use of lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum it will be in theory possible that they add the necessary dimensions changes while at the same time keep the weight to the desired number.

What Rivals will the Car Face?

The 2019 BMW 3 Series is looking to epitomize its next step in the segment and wants to get back some of the fame that it has lost. Although none of the additions so far are not groundbreaking, they are a good addition to keep the car afloat, But we shall see if it is enough to help it compete against the likes of Jaguar XE and Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, to name a few.

2017 BMW X3 Release Date and Info

The BMW X3 2017 offers value for its pricey cost with its excellent choice of luxury features, wide-raging talents, and a broad selection of engines. Some highlights include top-notch crash-test scores, crisp handling, a high quality cabin, a generous cargo and passenger space, and a choice of three capable and fuel-sipping engines. Its release date is set for early 2016.

Although largely unchanged, the X3 adds a standard Harman Kardon audio system.

The X3 isn’t for everyone especially if you have a tight budget. It costs a lot more than its rivals and its upscale features and technologies account for every cent. In its sixth year of production, it may seem like a long time for a luxury sedan to be a class leader, however, BMW has been able to keep its age at bay with the constant updates it has received over the years. It’s practically impossible to find any downside to this amazing vehicle and the only one we’ve been able to get is its relatively higher price.

For 2017, the X3 returns almost unchanged as last year saw a significant refresh to its design that burnished its appeal. For instance, it came with a new diesel engine that offered excellent fuel economy ratings; new redesigned headlights; and slight changes to its exterior color palette. For this year, the X3 has just gotten better. It has managed to age gracefully and seems to have gotten even better just like wine.

Frankly speaking, the available competition posed by its traditional rivals is still far away from catching up with the X3. They include: 2017 Acura RDX, 2017 Lexus NX, 2017 Porsche Macan, and the veteran 2017 Volvo XC60.
