2019 BMW Series 3 First Drive
What It Is: The next generation of the quintessential compact sports sedan. BMW has traditionally offered a four-door sedan and a station wagon, but we hope the misleadingly named “Gran Turismo” hunchback will remain without a successor.
Why It Matters: The 3-series used to be the car that everyone tried to emulate, but while sales remain strong, it has been surpassed in dynamics, interior quality, and design. With the next gen, BMW has the chance to recapture sports-sedan supremacy. We hear the design will be far more progressive and daring than the current 5- and 7-series, and that’s another step BMW must take.
Platform: Internally called G20, the new 3 will roll on BMW’s new longitudinal-engine platform, internally dubbed CLAR, which stands for “cluster architecture.” It’s lighter than the outgoing model by a good 150 pounds.
Powertrain: Today’s BMW Group engines with more power: 1.5-liter threes, 2.0-liter fours with upward of 250 horses, and 3.0-liter sixes with up to 400. The six-speed manual and ZF eight-speed automatic will carry over. The M3, which will produce close to 500 horsepower, will likely keep its seven-speed dual-clutch auto.
