Seventh generation 3 Series Saloon debuted at Paris Motor Show.
The BMW 3 Series Saloon has had an unparalleled reputation both for its quality and supreme handling in the premium midsize segment for more than forty years and this, the seventh generation, raises the bar even higher.

When the first BMW 3 Series was launched in 1975, it revolutionised the segment and became BMW’s most successful model. The saloon is the core of the BMW 3 Series range (of which over 15 million units have been sold worldwide) and is regarded as the heartbeat of the BMW brand. With revised styling, superior driving dynamics, exceptional efficiency and innovative features, this latest iteration opens an exciting new chapter in 3 Series progression.

EXTERIOR DESIGN
Precision, clean lines and bold contours are the hallmarks of the new 3 Series Saloon, which has had its proportions radically revised. The new car is 85 millimetres longer than its predecessor (at 4,709mm), 16mm wider (1,827mm) and just 1mm taller (1,442 mm). Added to that, its wheelbase has been extended by 41mm to 2,851mm, as has its track widths (front: by 43mm, and rear by 21mm).

At the front, the large BMW kidney grille elements are framed by a single surround and split up by wide bars and link to the headlight units. The customary BMW twin headlights feature the familiar two-way split that is further emphasised by an eye-catching notch in the front apron that rises into the headlight contour.

From launch, customers can choose from two non-metallic colours and ten metallic shades including the brand new Portimao Blue metallic which is unique to the top-selling M Sport model.
