With news of the soon to be anticipated launch of 2019 BMW 3 Series, at Paris, it was to be expected that it would generate a lot of buzzes and it certainly has done that. The BMW series 3 already has a reputation for both power and speed packed into one with fun handling and comfort riding slated to feature large when it comes to driving this car. And given all the hype and buzz doing the rounds, we certainly decided to do a review in advance and collated all the information that we could get our hands on, from leaked images, to interviews with engineers and the end result is this review. So let’s get to it, shall we?
2019 BMW 3 Series, an overview:
As far as the 2019 BMW 3 Series, is concerned, we got some good news – apart from the fact that the launch is imminent and can happen in the next few weeks, it seems that there won’t much change as far as the overall design is concerned. Well, no one would want to tinker with something that already looks good. From the leaked images, we could see that the new model looks a tad larger and sleeker, and we fully anticipate that this quintessential compact sports sedan will still look as good as all the hype that’s being built around it.
2019 BMW 3 Series, under the hood:
The 2019 BMW 3 Series is expected to come with a new kidney grille, as well as sleeker lines along with vertical LED headlights. The series 3 usually came out as a compact four-door sports sedan as well as a station wagon and we expect BMW to stick to the same. It comes with the same platform as before and as far as dimensions are concerned, there’s going to be nary much of a change, except for a few tweaks.
With most of the details being kept under wraps, we had to really scour the net to take a closer look at the images and it seems that the BMW series 3 comes with a slightly larger wheelbase, which should translate to a more spacious interior. We do not expect much change to the overall design from the front hood, front fascia to the sleek and aerodynamic design to the rear end, the detailing is expected to be as good as it gets, which is great.
2019 BMW 3 Series, interior:
The 2019 BMW 3 Series interior is expected to feature more than a few changes; as mentioned earlier, the BMW has long been renowned for both speed and comfort and to that end, all of its models, feature the same.

It also comes with a curvy dashboard with instrument cluster parked right in the middle within easy reach along with an enlarged infotainment panel.
