BMW will focus on substance with the next generation 3 Series as it aims to regain ground it has lost to the Mercedes C-Class. Due on sale in 2019, the new 3 could be revealed towards the end of 2018. Expect to see a model with sharper lines and a sportier stance with our sources saying its time for the design to move on.
Sitting on the company’s CLAR architecture for rear-wheel drive models, our insiders have told us the new model will be more about character, substance and quality, so expect some of the cheap items in the current model like the nasty air vent adjusters to be replaced by more solid items. – BD Motor News
