German luxury automaker BMW is ready with a number of big launches in the year. One of them is the next- gen 3- series that is undergoing testing on the Indian roads. The automaker had unveiled the car few days ago at the Paris Motor Show. Recently, the luxury vehicle has been spied testing in the country for the first time. It is said to be undergoing ARAI homologation ahead of launch.
The production- spec showcased at the 2018 Paris Motor Show is 76 mm longer and 41 mm increased wheelbase compared to the existing model on sale in India. Though bigger in dimension, the model is lighter than the outgoing model by 55 kilograms courtesy of the lightweight CLAR platform. The exterior is aerodynamically optimized for lower drag co- efficient of 0.26 with styling changes. The 2019 BMW 3- Series has updated kidney grille and is sharper than ever before. New bonnet lines, stretched back LED headlamps and the more chiseled side profile than the outgoing model are the prominent features at the exterior. At the rear, the new 3- Series has a more pronounced tail lamp cluster with more aggressive bumper and dual exhaust system complementing the overall look of the 7th gen 3- Series. Looking at the car, we can surely say that BMW has followed with the latest 5- Series and 7- Series as well but the interpretation here is sharper.
