BMW to reveal the 3 Series G20 at the Paris Motor Show

BMW to reveal the 3 Series G20 at the Paris Motor Show

ABU DHABI: After a series of camouflaged pictures and rumors surfaced the Internet, the German automaker has finally confirmed the official reveal of 2019 3 Series G20. The debut of the sedan is slated to happen at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, doors for which go wide from Oct 4 to Oct 14.


BMW 3 Series G20 Teaser


BMW shared the same teaser image, as already seen before, for the official reveal announcement. The teaser image shows the trademark double-kidney grille flanked by headlamps that also embraces the L-shaped LED daytime running lights. Additionally, the door handles get illumination while the taillights appear to share the same LED lighting pattern as the front.


Camouflaged 3-Series G20


Built on the brand’s modular Cluster Architecture (CLAR), the new 3 Series G20 will be longer and wider than the sibling F30. Moreover, it will get a generous wheelbase and significant reduction in weight by up to 55 kg. For improved handling and ride quality, the car is being tipped to have twin-rated passive shock absorbers and variable sport steering column.


Additionally, the limited-slip differential will also be offered as an option on higher-end variants. This can also be considered as a trimmed down version of the M Differential that not only distributes torque to the rear wheels equally but also makes up for the rotational speed difference.


The 3 Series G20 will draw power from the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that churns out a max power of 263.6 PS and a peak torque of 400 Nm. An M performance version is also expected to be revealed, which in case it does, then expect it to underpin a better version of the B58 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged mill.


Once launched, the new G20 will challenge the likes of the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, with a list of petrol, diesel, and plug-in hybrid variants. The latter is still not confirmed though. There are rumours that the company is also considering to launch an all-electric version, for which of course we need to wait for the day.  


Stay tuned with us for more updates on the new BMW 3 Series G20 and other automotive news.
