The new exterior of the BMW 3 Series, obviously, created not so much with an eye on the features of its predecessor, leaving many ideas about the design of future cars.
The characteristic form of the front elements, curved lines of the engine compartment lid and, in general, the silhouette of the new “trio” is very similar to the features peculiar conceptual gasoline-electric hybrid BMW i8.
Although the company Hofmeister bending on the rear rack “three” is still retained.
Surprisingly similar to the concept of futuristic solutions were also elements of the interior of the BMW 3 Series the sixth generation.
Naturally – bucket-seat, glass ceiling and doors made of polycarbonate or liquid crystal panel 3D instead of the instrument panel – is the best solution for the mass of the car in terms of process engineers.
And in the center of the dashboard was a place for a large fine and bright information display system iDrive.
With the additional 93 th of a millimeter long, half of which went to increase the base of the BMW 3 Series, and the new design of the front seat backs, a free space for the rear passengers has increased by as much as 15 centimeters.

Engine Start option is a 4-cylinder diesel engine capacity of 184 horsepower with a torque of 380 Newton-meters.
Thanks to BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and direct fuel injection system 3 Series sedan with this engine accelerates from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 7.5 seconds.
Even more impressive fuel consumption in the combined cycle the car with a manual transmission consumes 4.5 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, and the version with “automatic” even a little smaller – 4.4 liters.
The machine with a new 2-liter petrol unit received 328 Index.
Twin-scroll turbine and fuel injection system High Precision Injection Capture 4 -x entire cylinder 245 horsepower and 350 Newton-meters of torque.
In addition, the range in which the new engine exhibits the highest tone, very wide.
This BMW 3 Series reached the mark of 100 kilometers per hour in 5.9 seconds.
“Appetite” he, of course, not the same as a diesel.
But seriously perceive figures that produces on-board computer, it is difficult – 6.5 liters per “hundred” in the combined cycle.

Dynamics and driving pleasure have always been a hallmark of BMW cars.
It is clear that in the process of developing the new 3 Series sedan engineers simply had no right to give up at least one of these standards.
Not surprisingly, the sixth generation of the car not in the least lost stability or predictability or sensitivity to manipulation of the wheel or accelerator pedal.
However, this progress is that in spite of everything, the sedan has become more comfortable.
And this trait representatives of 3 rd Series did not spoil almost never.

To this end, the BMW 3 Series set a new mode dial, which comprehensively controls the settings of the accelerator pedal, the power steering and sensitivity DSC stability control system.
Actually, it is also subject to an automatic transmission and a system shock resistance adjustment.
In sport mode, the car turns into a fireball, which is sensitive to the slightest touch on the accelerator pedal and ready to give vent to the rear wheels.
However, at least a serious stake in the company are now doing and ECO PRO mode, which contributes the most smooth and economical driving style.
