2013 BMW 3-Series

The BMW 3-series has remained unchanged since as long as 2005. So, it is only natural that the luxury automaker has decided to finally revamp the existing 3-series as a 2013 model. Many experts seem to agree that the new styling of the car has been modeled on the recently unveiled CS concept. Some have also suggested a fair amount of the styling from the recent 7-series induced in the car.

One thing is for sure though- the next generation 3-series will have a longer wheelbase than the earlier model. The new vehicle is also expected to be lighter than its predecessor. Also, the new car will be offered in five models rather than the usual four.

BMW’s special EfficientDynamics technology will help this car to achieve better efficiency through the use of smaller engines, low drag aerodynamics and high-tech electronics. Also, more of aluminum and similar materials will be used to construct the body of the car to make it lighter.

The present six-cylinder engines will be replaced by the turbocharged four-cylinder engines delivering anywhere between 150-170 horsepower and 150-220 pound-feet of torque. Mated to the engine will be an eight-speed transmission and efficient auxiliary systems such as heating and cooling.
