As revealed, under the sheet metal of the 3-Series is a turbocharged 3.0L 6-cylinder mill with 360 – 370 hp. This power can be fed to the rear wheel or to an xDrive all-paw setup depending on your pocket. Standard transmission is an 8-speed automatic while a limited-slip differential comes as an option. Rumor had it that BMW’s most potent inline-4 engine ever would be also equipped in the new 3er, but up to now, no words on this.
With a drag coefficient of 0.23 only, this sports sedan is one of the most aerodynamic production models ever made that promises to save you much on fuel. In detail, fuel economy would be further improved by a healthy diet of 55 kg. That said, not all trims can be able to scale down that much. In addition, the new 3-Series is also armed with wider tracks and an optional M sports suspension system which cuts off the ride height by 10 mm. Watch the driving video below to see the way this sedan performs on the road:

To abolish vibrations produced while going hard through the corners or traversing over bumps, a new damping system with lift-related dampers is likewise furnished on this model. An ideal 50:50 weight distribution, a more precise steering wheel, and a set of 18-inch alloys all become visible in the 3-Series as expected.
