2018 BMW 3 Series test vehicle reveals shaper design philosophy

Test vehicles of the 2018 BMW 3 Series have been a regular on our pages for quite a while now but now for the first time we have got to see some of the design philosophy that will define the car. It will be launched in 2018 and will be seventh generation for the sedan.

Firstly, the face, which is the most identifiable feature of the range, has got sharper features but without losing the identity (a.k.a the kidney grille). In silhouette too it has become sharper and the curvy nature of the current car has been replaced by a more pronounced line. The rear while appearing unfinished does give us a hint of the full LED setup in the tail lamps. We can also see that the next-generation car will get wider, longer and a bit lower.

This car will be underpinned by the new CLAR RWD architecture found in the 7 Series thus bringing it up to date in the BMW hierarchy. Our sources suggest that in addition to visual overhaul, this new 3 Series will also get a lot more add on bits in the form of accessory packs and performance packs.  We have come a long way since the launch of the last 3 Series in the Indian market and this time around we will be one of the priority markets for the German automaker when it comes to this car. Expect a launch and local assembly a few months after the global debut in 2018.
