Inspired by the past.
Each new generation of the BMW 3 Series has evolved, becoming the powerful and efficient driving machine it is today.
From the original 1975 3 Series, inspired by the BMW 02 Series, there has been a great push towards The Ultimate Driving Machine. The introduction of a convertible and touring model in the 1980s gave a more diverse range that would appeal to a larger number of drivers.
With a more aerodynamic look first appearing in 1998, the sleek lines that have carried through to the present day had arrived.
The new BMW 3 Series Saloon has evolved its design language while still keeping true to its iconic roots. Flowing lines, which interplay with sculptured contours, deliver an unmistakable silhouette and maintain the saloon’s sporty yet elegant feel. Complementing this is a wider and more powerful stance, which is instantly noticeable from the rear and a true reflection of its nature.
Featuring the latest innovations and engines, and reduced weight, the New BMW 3 Series matches power, tightened suspension and better aerodynamics to provide a sportier handling that is felt in every turn of the wheel.
Efficient and Powerful Engines.
The New BMW 3 Series is available with either Petrol or Diesel at launch, with a plug-in hybrid to be launched in 2019.
The new 320d Saloon range brings high performance and great economy. The 190bhp engine delivers 0-62mph in as little as 6.8s, with up to 56.5mpg* and CO2 emissions of 110-120g/km^. Buying a diesel is not longer a choice of performance or economy.
For those who want the higher performance, or those who prefer a petrol engine, the new 330i Sport or 330i M Sport delivers. Boasting 258bhp and 0-62mph in only 5.8s, you will enjoy each and every drive. All that power comes with up to 41.5mpg* and CO2 emissions of 134-139g/km^.
*Fuel consumption figures based on the new test (WLTP) and represent a combined figure.
