Future 2019 BMW 3-series Get New Compact Turbo Engine


The BMW 3 Series is about the nearest thing in the automotive world that comes close to legendary, or least that’s currently in production (so not including the muscle cars of yesteryear!). It has been in constant production for over forty years, since 1975 and there’s no sign of it stopping anytime soon.

The new BMW 3 Series 2019 (G20) has been spied out testing on the Nurburgring, so we have a vague idea as to what it looks like (despite being heavily camouflaged) but BMW have released no information regarding it; everything you read on the internet is based on speculation, rumor or industry knowledge.

More often than not, most car manufacturers like to release the next model sometime before the year designation, but we don’t think that BMW will be rolling out the 2019 BMW 3 Series before 2019; the current production model is expected to finish in October 2018.

Prices for the existing model start at $33,450, BMW will have to keep the pricing structure to allow them to compete in the market. However, the introduction of a 1.5 liter 3-cylinder turbo may change that pricing for the base model of the next BMW 3 series 2019.

No More Touring Version

As we’ve already stated, BMW could introduce the small 1.5 liter turbo charged three cylinder engine, either as a standalone power source or in conjunction with a hybrid system. Aside from that, expect to see the flagship 340 get rebadged as an M340i, it will get a little more power and a few extra’s that are specific to the M. The 335d will also be replaced by the M340d.

We’ve also been told that the Touring version (2019 BMW 3 series wagon) won’t be manufactured after this last production cycle, so if that’s the model that floats your boat, 2018 will be the last time you can buy one. A strange choice by BMW; it’s a popular model, but obviously not popular enough.

Re-engineered For 2019

As for the rest of the car, it will be significantly re-engineered, with updated suspension and drive train, it will also be significantly lighter, thanks to a range of lightweight materials in the chassis and body – this should mean the 3 Series rides even better than it currently does, and it’s no slouch in that department anyway.

An overall more sporty look will finish off the car, slimmer LED headlights are to be fitted and the OLED rear lights that we’ve already seen will also find a home on the new 3 Series. 2019 BMW 3 series interior will be also updated.
