Here’s our first chance to take a look at the new generation BMW 3 Series, due in 2012, without the annoying camouflage obscuring the view.
Alright, so they are not of best quality, because they’ve been scooped during a photoshoot, but they are clear enough to prove the new F30 3 Series is heavily inspired by the current F10 5-series. The front-end looks particularly good to us.
The current 3 Series is a fine looking car, but it suffers from complete lack of emotion and soul. The new model seems to have addressed that issue by adding a bit more drama.
The 2012 BMW 3 Series will also be more technologically advanced and come with new, innovative features never seen before in this class. If you look at the top of the dashboard in the pictures, you notice the Head Up Display unit. It used to be exclusive to big, expensive models, but you can now get it in a 3er.
Don’t look for the car at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show though, as the car’s debut is set for November.
