EXHILARATION RE-TUNED. HEADS, RE-TURNED. The new BMW 3 Series remains every inch the driver’s car with its driver-oriented cockpit, rear-wheel drive dynamics and flowing lines running from bonnet to boot.
The latest model holds true to all that has come before, with its chrome and high gloss finishes exuding pure elegance, and its striking features giving it a broad, sporty presence.
New for 2018 LED fog lights, LED headlights, and iDrive 6.0 are now standard features on the 3 Series lineup. The M Sport Package is now available with 19-inch wheels and a new Aluminum Dark Carbon trim with Pearl Gloss Chrome highlight. New available equipment includes a Shadow Sport special edition package, 18-inch bi-color Jet Black wheels, kidney grille frame in high-gloss black, LED headlights with black insert and darker taillights, Aluminum Dark Carbon trim with Pearl Gloss Chrome highlights, a new Sport leather steering wheel, Sunset Orange Metallic paint, and Cognac Brown Dakota leather.
Styling The new 318I styling is evolutionary, rather than revolutionary – no surprises in what is a conservative class. It appears to sit wider than the current model and should feature a new, aggressively styled front bumper, while still keeping BMW’s signature twin-kidney grille. Other BMW styling cues such as the Hofmeister kink – a curved rear pillar design seen on BMWs since the 1960s – are also expected to be found on the new model.
Interior Although BMW isn’t revealing much about the car’s interior – it should feature digital gauges replacing more conventional analogue ones. The firm’s latest iDrive infotainment system, with voice activation and gesture control, should also appear in this new car.
