The latest model holds true to all that has come before, with its chrome and high gloss finishes exuding pure elegance, and its striking features giving it a broad, sporty presence.

EXTERIOR.

The new, perfectly proportioned BMW 3 Series Saloon is unmistakable, with numerous changes to its iconic design giving it an irresistibly sporty, modern appearance. The characteristic short front overhang, elongated bonnet and long wheelbase are accentuated by a roofline that sweeps towards a smoothly sloping boot. The result is a coupe-like silhouette that gives an impression of movement, even when standing still.


The front of the car features striking optional LED headlights, which, using adaptive technology, automatically adjust illumination to specific driving conditions. This LED package also includes cornering lights, which anticipate bends by turning before the car, allowing optimal safety at crucial moments. Additionally, LED fog lights (halogen standard) sit below the headlights, adding to the car’s agile look and casting a light extremely similar to daylight in murky conditions.


The remodelled front bumper sits in perfect harmony with the intricately designed air inlets in the front apron, emphasising the car’s broad stance. From the rear, the new bumper continues the dynamic shape, while the L-shaped LED lights (as standard) are set wide apart, ensuring a distinctive look even when the sun goes down.


Wider exhausts, new athletic rim designs and a fresh choice of colours (such as Mediterranean Blue, which particularly accentuates the ‘Sport’ model’s key features) round off the powerful look of the world’s most distinctive sports saloon.

LED LIGHT DESIGN.

In addition to the standard-feature rear lights in LED technology, the headlights and fog lights of the BMW 3 Series Sedan are also available with LED light units.

  • LED headlights

    All the light functions in the LED headlights with daytime running lights, parking lights and indicators are powered by LED technology. The high-beam and low-beam lights consist of 10 high-power LEDs. The headlights come with automatic headlight range control, deliver brilliant illumination of the road ahead and thereby improve safety at night and in bad weather.
    LEDs (light emitting diodes) are characterised by their long lifespan and consume up to 50 percent less energy than conventional light bulbs. So they also help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions output. What's more, the light they produce is very similar to daylight so it's particularly gentle on the eyes. The flat outer contour of the LED headlights also accentuates the car's athletic style.

  • Adaptive LED headlights

    Adaptive LED headlights are characterized by light distribution that automatically adjusts to the driving speed, dynamically illuminating the road ahead. In addition to indicators and daytime running lights, it includes the Adaptive headlight function with variable city and motorway light distribution, cornering lights, as well as BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle high-beam assistant), which automatically switches between the low and high-beam lights. That allows the system to offer optimal road illumination under all conditions.
    In the dark, the moveable headlights allow the driver to see far into curves as soon as the wheel is turned. To improve short-range visibility, the cornering lights are automatically activated as soon as the turn indicator is switched on or the steering wheel is turned – even when the vehicle is at a standstill. The Adaptive headlights ensure optimum illumination on the road, significantly increasing active safety.
    BMW Selective Beam allows the driver to leave the high-beams on whenever they are needed, facilitating optimal visual conditions at night. The system monitors the presence of vehicles in front or oncoming traffic and adjusts the high-beam lights to avoid dazzling other road users.

  • LED fog lights

    LED fog lights increase short-range visibility in fog or precipitation, improving night-time driving safety. Along with their broad beam angle, they are notable for the colour of their light – which is extremely similar to daylight – their long lifespan and their low energy consumption.
    At the same time, the LED fog lights below the headlights set a technically advanced, modern tone for the already striking front of the BMW 3 Series.

  • Rear lights with LED technology

    The Rear lights with lighting elements in LED technology consist of individual high-performance LED lighting elements and have the characteristic BMW "L" shape. That strengthens the rear end's identity as a BMW and makes the vehicle recognisable as a BMW even in the dark.
    The large indicators and fast-acting LED brake lights also play a role in making the BMW 3 Series even safer.

INTERIOR.

Inside the new BMW 3 Series Saloon, the characteristic driver-oriented cockpit gives you more control than ever, placing every innovation easily and intuitively within reach. The driver experience is enhanced by a wealth of high quality materials - seats feature new optional materials and stitching, while the centre console (including the climate control, air vents and radio) is finished with chrome and high gloss black highlights.


The trim is a refined ash black wood (or an optional high gloss black), and an extended trim finisher runs into all doors front and back, just above the subtly extended ambient lighting, which also continues along the centre of the dashboard.


The freestanding Control Display now has a slim, 6.5-inch high resolution screen with navigation as standard, and boasts a faster, more intuitive user experience. Spaciousness is another key feature, with the flexibility to handle everyday practicalities, and numerous storage compartments to ensure the interior stays uncluttered, however busy your life..
