Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Expected to arrive in 2018.

Germany’s AutoBild magazine has carried a rendering of the next generation BMW 3 Series on the cover of its recent edition. Codenamed BMW G20, the executive saloon is expected to arrive in showrooms in 2018.

It seems that the next 3 series will borrow cues from the BMW Vision Luxury Concept. The headlights as well as the kidney grilles are sharper than the current 3 Series, and the bumper has also been redesigned.

As with all future RWD models from BMW, the next 3 Series will ride on the CLAR modular platform that integrates materials like carbon fiber, aluminum and high strength steel. It’s expected to be significantly lighter than the current 3 Series, and will rival the aluminum-based Jaguar XE.

The next 3 Series could get BMW’s B-family range of engines that include a 1.5-liter three cylinder turbo, 2.0-liter four cylinder petrol and diesel lineup and a range-topping M340i variant with a 3.0-liter inline six engine. An 8-speed automatic could be standard.
