BMW is readying the all new BMW 3-Series sedan which will be introduced sometime next year and will go squarely against Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the segment. The new-generation BMW 3-Series is currently in its final phase of testing and will be offered globally with new variants including the M-division version. With focus on making the new 3-Series more comfortable, the company aims at expanding 3-Series’ reach in the global market.

Set for a generation leap, the seventh-gen BMW 3-Series will receive two new M Performance models which will derive power from the six-cylinder engines. These variants are however expected to launch at a later stage, after the launch of mainstream versions of the seventh-gen BMW 3-Series. The new derivatives will be available in either petrol or diesel engine options and will be slotted between the standard six-cylinder models and BMW M’s top-spec M3.

Being developed under the codename G20, the prototype of the sedan versions were caught testing near BMW’s engineering headquarters in Munich recently. In terms of design, expect the new BMW 3-Series to get prominent changes in tandem with the larger 5-Series and X2 SUV. Reports in media suggest, the seventh-gen BMW 3-Series will also receive dimensional changes, measuring 60mm longer, taking the overall length to 4,703mm, while the wheelbase is also likely to be increased by 20mm to 2,830mm.

Underpinning BMW’s new CLAR (cluster architecture), which is seen in most of the new BMW models, the seventh-gen 3-Series is also likely to feature longitudinally mounted engine. Besides, the use of lighter materials such as high-strength steel in the main body structure will aide curbing overall weight, making the sedan around 50kg lighter than its predecessor. BMW will additionally use components such as aluminium and magnesium in the body construction which would give it structural rigidity.
