BMW told about the new 3-SeriesAugust 16, 2018
BMW published teasers and gave some technical details about the next-generation 3-Series model (G20 index). The public premiere of the novelty, which now passes the latest tests on the “North loop of the Nurburgring, will be held in October as part of the Paris Motor Show.
The center of gravity of the new car in comparison with its predecessor decreased by 10 mm, and the weighting along the axes turned out to be ideal – 50:50. The weight of the BMW 3-Series decreased by 55 kg, but the strength of the body structure and suspension increased by 15-20%.
The new 3-Series received a completely redesigned suspension – the sedan will be the first production BMW, in which special “smart” dampers are used that “continuously and steadily work in accordance with the course of the spring.” The company noted that such a solution can get rid of vibrations during the passage of irregularities or during sharp turns.
The line of engines will include a “completely redesigned” gasoline unit, which will become the most powerful four-cylinder engine in the history of BMW. Thus the motor will turn out approximately on 5% more economically than the predecessor.
Optionally for the novelty will be available recustomized sports M-suspension with a lowered by 10 mm ground clearance, rear differential with electronic control, as well as 18-inch aluminum wheels.
