The exterior design of the new BMW 3 Series 320i uses a combination of precisely drawn lines and strikingly contoured surfaces to create a modern interpretation of the sporting aesthetic. The new 330i looks great, has a solid build quality, modern interior and cutting edge tech. And most importantly represents a return to being a solid drivers car and one worthy of becoming the new icon. BMW officials contend that their goal isn’t to make the 3 Series the best-selling compact sports sedan in the industry, just the one that sets the benchmark for performance and handling. In announcing pricing and specifications, BMW Group Australia CEO, Vikram Pawah said, “The BMW 3 Series 320i has been a stalwart of the brand since its 1975 introduction.
BMW 3 Series 320i Price and Estimated Day
Estimated Arrival and Price: Look for the next-generation BMW 3-Series 320i to arrive in the middle of 2018 as a 2019 model-year vehicle after debuting at the Frankfurt auto show this September. The prototype pictured in these images looks the most production-ready of any of the next-generation 3 Series prototypes we’ve seen. Built on a new generation platform, it will be seen with several exterior updates while the interiors too have been thoroughly updated in terms of technology and safety features.
BMW 3 Series 320i Plug-in Design
The plug-in-hybrid 320i is expected to see upgrades that will improve upon the current model’s paltry 14-mile all-electric EPA driving range. As far as the engines are concerned, we expect the next-gen 3-Series to have a wide range of gasoline and diesel (at least in Europe) engines. We thrashed the daylights out of one across mountainous terrain and barely broke past 7L/100km. BMW 320i is bullish on the future of diesel. While the 5- and 7-series have lost the inherent behind-the-wheel joy of BMWs past, we’re hopeful that the new 3-series will bring BMW 320i back to its dynamic roots, which were established by four generations of 10Best Cars winners.
BMW 3 Series 320i Front Wheel Feature
Unlike the 5, however, the front wheels of the 3-series are not suspended by double wishbones; it gets the more affordable McPherson struts. The second surface break, however, fades out entirely, leaving the headlamp “eyebrow” straight until it intersects the hood cut line. With the wagon, cargo capacity stands at 17.5 cubic feet with all seats in place and 53 cubic feet with the second row lowered. The second way is more money, naturlich.
BMW 3 Series 320i Special Instrument Panel Function
The instrument panel has a modern, light look, and its horizontal lines, high-quality electroplated trim strips and contours extending into the doors lend themselves to a feeling of width and elegance. It may not have the same raw acceleration, but I would take that more connected feeling over the 320i’s slightly robotic athleticism in most cases. This prevents excessive body dive when driving over large bumps and so avoids uncomfortable, nervous damping response.
All this makes the 3 Series a solid pick for those who need a 320i with a cabin that’s roomy enough to transport a family. The immaculate construction of the chassis for the All-New BMW 3 Series 320i sees the enhanced driving dynamics, agile handling characteristics, high-precision steering and superior braking performance put front and center bow with a well-designed framework. A three-spoke multifunction steering wheel is present and joined by a squarish shifter similar to the one used in the new 2019 BMW 3 Series.
