The new BMW 3 series looks leaner and meaner at the front and back. The classic kidney grille is more dominant, there are sharper new graphics to the headlights that include LED indicators and a new bumper. Curvy new wing mirrors and a prominent new crease line running from the rear of the front wing to the new LED tail lights give the car much more road presence.
BMW report that they have made 2500 changes to the new 3 series a large number of these will are small details but a major change is the superb new 3 litre turbo diesel engine in the 330d that will now put BMW back to the top of the performance and economy tree. The diesel is actually quicker than the 330i 3 litre petrol. Fuel economy is a major factor in today’s climate, hard motorway driving in this model gets 37 mpg together with acceptable co2 emissions of 152 g/km.
