The BMW 3-Series facelift has been spotted with minimal camouflage. The upcoming BMW 3-Series facelift might get a few cosmetic upgrades and some mechanical changes.
Changes to the styling of the new 3-Series are minor. Only the front portion of the car carried a sliver of camouflaging. This hints that a redesigned front end will definitely be one of the additions on the new BMW 3-Series. It appears that the air intakes have been tweaked a bit, too. The rest of the car does not stray away too much from the design language of the current BMW 3-Series. The car’s surefooted stance sure does make for a sight to the eyes. Interiors on the new BMW 3-Series are expected to be plusher as compared to the current line-up. The feature list will include various assistance systems and comfort goodies.
Mechanically, there will be more to write about as compared to the visual department. Unconfirmed reports hint at the possibility of more powerful four and six-cylinder engines. There might be some new entry-level variants of the 3-Series featuring BMW’s 1.5 Liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder engine. There also exists a very slim probability of the introduction of a Plug-In hybrid variant. It could possess a TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine assisted by a electric motor powered by lithium-ion battery packs.
Reports have suggested that there will be a change to the naming system of the new 3-Series. While the 328i could be handed over the 330i badge, the 335i might become the new 340i. The BMW 3-Series facelift will be revealed in various international markets later this year. It could make its first public appearance at the Paris Motor Show, scheduled for October this year. The facelift is aimed at keeping the BMW 3-Series fresh and challenging against the competing Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
