While we ‘d have wanted to see a huge step forward stylistically– there might yet be one relating to color or products– the beneficial ergonomics and elegant appearance of the existing model along with its newer brethren is no bad thing. One can anticipate that most, if not all, of BMW’s gimmicky tech and comfort features offered on the 5 will make their method to the 3, such as gesture control, along with evolved versions of tech and luxury features the 3-series currently offers. In this model, we see that the iDrive knob is located next to a reshaped console-mounted electrical shifter, which the infotainment display, likely a touchscreen, now sits in a lower, more accessible location.

The 3-series will ride on BMW’s CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform, which assures to shave as much as 150 pounds from curb weights and bring a lower center of mass, both of which might assist the 3 restore a few of its sporting luster.
