Next generation BMW 3 Series spotted on test

Next generation BMW 3 Series spotted on test

The next generation of the BMW 3 Series (codenamed G20) has been spotted on test in Europe. The pictures reveal a pre-production model of the automaker’s mid-level luxury sedan but showed a revised design philosophy.

The car gets a sharper face and revised design for the headlamps; both changes in line with the new 7 Series that will be launched in India next month. The iconic lines of the 3 Series have been retained nearly 40 years on and this is visible in the small boot-big hood design philosophy.
BMW has now moved to full LED units for the lights and this is evident in the tail lamps.  The stance of the car is forward heavy while the wheels (which have a new design) appear to be bigger that the current car.

Our sources suggest that the German automaker’s cluster architecture (a.k.a CLAR) will play a major role in underpinning their future core RWD models. 

It is also expected that since the competition in the segment has now become more intense, BMW may go for volume building measures rather than outright display of prowess when it comes to keeping the car ahead of the game.
It is too early to speculate about this car for India but rest assured it will come here whenever it is launched and will be locally assembled.
