Video: 2012 BMW 3 Series caught

Posted on: Jun 1, 2011 - 1:25pm IST

CarsSpyPhotos.com has scooped up a video of the 2012 BMW 3 Series being tested on the roads of Germany. The current generation 3 series (known as E90 and E92) is expected to say sayonara sometime this October. Replacing it will be the bigger next generation 3 Series codenamed F30.

The new 3 Series will share the more conservative design language that BMW has adopted. It will have a much slimmer look, and sharp lines with squat proportions and short rear overhangs. This will not be a complete revolutionary model but more of an evolutionary change.

A range of turbocharged four and six cylinder mills are expected to do their duty under the bonnet. BMW claims that the new 3 Series will combine superb driving pleasure with an added touch of fuel efficiency. The performance version of the 3 Series – M3 is expected to ditch V8 power in favor of a twin-turbo inline-six sporting about 450 horsepower.

International debut of the new 3 Series is expected in spring 2012. In that case assembly of the F30 at the Chennai facility should commence in the first quarter of 2012.

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
