    Leaked: 2019 BMW 3-Series

      Whoops

    What you see before you is the next-generation BMW 3-Series, known as the G20 that will be debuting later this week at the Paris Motor Show. But renders from the configurator have leaked out and made their away on to various websites.

    The overall dimensions and profile of the G20 3-Series are reminiscent of the F30 generation. Up front, the 3-Series makes a callback to the larger 5-Series with wider kidney grilles, sculpted hood, and narrower headlights. The M Sport and M340i get a more aggressive front bumper treatment with faux mesh inserts in front of the wheels. A noticeable depression is applied to the bottom part of the doors.

    For the interior, BMW has gone for a modern and minimalistic look with sharp angles, large screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, and a small number of buttons. It appears all of the models in the photos have an automatic transmission, with some lacking a selector - though we believe that's more of error with the renderings.

    We'll have more details on the mechanical and other bits when the 3-Series debuts later this week.

    Thanks @William Maley for pointing out the changes. My first impression was what has changed? ?‍♂️

    The more I looked at all the pics on the Bimmerpost site, I was able to pick them up, truly an evolution of the brand, not a revolution but then many like that. Should do BMW well. Mixed feeling on the dash.

    Well, it looks like a BMW.  I am not a big fan of the digital display behind the steering wheel, it doesn't seem to fit in right.  But nothing inside or out looks offensive, they are serving up what the people want, the formula isn't broken so no need to change it.

    The competition isn't standing still.

    BMW has some gaping sales holes in it's lineup- holes that absolutely need to be changed up in the battle for '#1 luxury mainstream volume brand' with mercedes.

    IS BMW THAT far behind Mercedes Benz in sales?  MB seems to be a luxury brand for almost every luxury buyer, whereas BMW is still luxury sports sedans (and the X SAVs).

    The interior is a definite step up and now BMW’s look like they are the logical in between of Audi and Mercedes. 

     

    Which means this car is blah at best. But I think the exterior overall is still more attractive than the Mercedes but the Volvo S60 is still the ‘all-new for 2019’ styling champion of this class.

    • If it's traffic congestion, you should actually be getting more than a highway/city average rating, A/C or not. That's one of the biggest advantages of an EV, their incredible city ratings as they're constantly recouping energy decelerating or traveling at speeds where drag from windspeed is next to zero. 
    • Around here with traffic congestion back to PrePandemic levels, the 30 miles would seem like enough but it seems when you live on the Eastside, then your 20 miles one way is too long to get to work and back and if it is hot where you use the climate control, then 30 miles is more like 25 or so, so I get the drive to work, charge, drive home and charge, but your right, might as well get a full on EV. Still an Ugly Porky Pig of an SUV and I love SUVs, but this one just does not click for me.
    • Yep. they're just awful all-around. It isn't like the sedans who just have a nasty grille section. These are more of a mess from bumper to bumper, IMO.  Nobody with a plug-in hybrid really cares about charging speeds. They're only using this because it's free to them. Level 2 is more than enough for any plug-in hybrid (well, the Ram REV or whatever may be a different story, but it's not out yet).  30 miles of range is plenty. Realistically, anything more than that has too heavy of a battery and may as well just be a full EV as you lose efficiency with either wasted battery weight or wasted engine/transmission weight.
    • Perhaps Ford is too beholden on the stock market and investors and analysts expecting a huge ROI in a quarter...incapable of thinking long term for investments...
    • The thing is a fat pig that does not fit in the parking stalls and slower than stink on charging. Pretty bad, found out it is a salesperson here at Dell and they have stated they love how fast it is, but the battery is so small for any real pure electric driving and the charging is slower than crap. They charge as they get free parking for less cost charging than the cost of parking in the garage. 🙄
