The auto world is buzzing with the news of 2023 BMW 3 Series new images. Most of the talks are about the facelift which will affect the overall look (and also performance) of the ride. With images appearing on social media and the internet, it’s not really surprising that everyone is talking about it.
The Updated Plans
The current Beemer 3 Series has existed since 2018. That’s why it’s pretty unusual for Beemer to already plan a new design for the 2023 model. Some say that Beemer may likely get prepared for their significant upgrades soon enough.
The Exterior Changes
It’s quite a surprise that the new 2023 BMW 3 Series isn’t coming with the big grille, like the one used in 4 Series. It seems that 3 Series stays with the smaller design, sharing similar design with 2 Series coupe. There are also other changes on the front side, including new bumper with redesigned vents (right below the headlights) and also a bigger air intake. Such arrangement is believed to deliver better cooling ability to the front brake.
The headlights miss out the small indent, which is happening on the current model. The daytime running strip light would run on the top side of light cluster, looking stylish and trendy with boot spoiler and side mirror (from carbon fiber effect). The overall effect somewhat looks sportier.
The Possible Interior Work
Again, there’s no info about the details of interior cabin updates, but trim options as well as new upholstery should come along way. It would be impossible to change the exterior area while leaving the interior still the same, right?
For the changes, technologies would likely improve too. it’s possible that Beemer would include the latest infotainment system, the iDrive 8.0, in this ride – just like what they did with i4 as well as all iX all-electric types. The iDrive has a central display screen (14.9 inch) and also driver’s display screen (12.3 inch).
Engine and Performance
With the refreshed updates on the physical areas, the engine must get updates too. After all, Beemer is determined with the complete redesigned project, so they would do it along the way. There is no detailed information about engine arrangement, but you should expect different variants of them, including petrol unit, diesel unit, and possibly plug-in hybrids. It may have a slight more punch, with mild-hybrid help for the petrol four-cylinder units. The current diesel line already has mild-hybrid technology for the six-cylinder petrol. For power outcome, it is predicted to produce from 184 hp to around 374 hp.
Release Date and Price
Since the company hasn’t said anything about their upcoming 3 Series, many auto enthusiasts and experts speculate that official release would likely be happening in 2022, in early times. For the sales, it may start late within the same year. Because of the updates, prices would likely go higher. The base may start from around $38,200 while the highest trim would be set around $40,000. Because Beemer remains hush-hush about their 3 Series, we should wait for further info about 2023 BMW 3 Series.
