Tuesday, August 5, 2008: Today, German automobile manufacturer BMW revealed the completely redesigned compact sedan, the iconic 3-Series. Being the most popular of all the luxury four-doors that the German brand has to offer, the all-new model sports well-incorporated styling cues from its biggest brother, the 7-Series, especially in the front, where, as compared to the previous 3-Series, the signature kidney grills are much more upright and forwards. This arguably legendary compact surely can win customers with its speed and looks, but with gas prices on the rise torwards four dollars and beyond, can this hell-raising sedan keep up with the miles per gallon?
The 2012 3-Series, due in showrooms mid-2011, may place respectable numbers in performance, but does it sip or consume? Will the 3-Series do or die? Here's the answer to a question a lot of people could ask: the new model features 22 city/26 city, so there certainly is a round of applause due here for this ferociously popular car.
Although the new BMW 3-Series may have tamer looks, it is no debate that the luxury marque's top-seller will stay that way.
