The new 2016 BMW 3 Series focuses on design and technology
About twenty-five percent of BMWs sold happen to be the iconic 3 Series, making it the most successful model series in the German automakers lineup spanning 40 years and six model generations. For 2016, the 3 Series Sedan and Touring focus on sharper design, a bump in advanced technology and engine performance, giving new in-market BMW shoppers something to smile about.
The design of the new BMW 3 Series stands out with even greater precision and various detail improvements. At the front end, new aprons with revised air intakes accentuate the feeling of width, while the sensor for the optional Active Cruise Control (ACC) is harmoniously integrated into the central air intake. The sculptural rear apron design, including a Line-specific trim element, and standard LED rear lights likewise emphasise the car’s width and thus its sporting appearance. An innovative lighting concept, featuring newly designed headlights and striking LED daytime driving lights, underlines the car’s sporty and powerful visual appeal. Inside, the 2016 3 Series finds materials and additional chrome highlights for the controls, air vents and central control panel, plus the newly crafted centre console with a sliding cover for the cupholders enables better use of the storage surfaces forward of the gearshift lever.
The new BMW 3 Series is available with classical rear-wheel drive or BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, depending on the model.
