Chassis / Suspension / Aero
  • Body-in-white lighter by 44 lbs.
  • Body structure lighter by 16.5 lbs.
  • Aluminum hood and front fenders saves another 33 lbs.
  • Overall body rigidity up 25%; as much as 50% in certain areas
  • Suspension spring rates increased by 20 percent without loss of comfort
  • Lift-related dampers use for first time in a BMW model (featured on both regular and M Performance suspension)
    • Reduces body movement perceptibly smoothing out vibrations caused by bumpy road surfaces and dynamic cornering. The system adds extra hydraulic damping at the front axle and a compression limiting system at the rear. It is continuously variable and adjusts the damper firmness progressively according to the changing spring travel. This prevents excessive body dive when driving over large bumps and so avoids uncomfortable, nervous damping response.
  • Ride comfort and acoustics both improved
  • Aluminum swivel bearings and control arms for the front axle, aluminum wheel mounts and a new generation of wheel bearings for the rear axle significantly reduce unsprung mass
  • Front spring struts and engine sub-frame now made of aluminum
  • Drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.26, a reduction of .03 Cd over F30 3 Series
  • Active air flap control extends across the BMW kidney grille and lower air intake

Adaptive M Suspension
  • Both the sportiest and most comfortable suspension available
  • Now with new valves and optimized control algorithm, which now also enables load-dependent control of the damping forces
  • ADAPTIVE mode is now available and adjusts car's responses to the driving style and, depending on the equipment specified, to the route profile. The control system responds to accelerator and steering inputs and the position of the selector lever to make the powertrain and suspension characteristics sportier or more comfort-oriented. The map data supplied by the optional Navigation system Professional is also used to prepare the car for an upcoming junction or bend.

Steering
  • Servotronic speed-sensitive power assistance is standard
  • Variable sport steering is part of the M Sport suspension and Adaptive M Sport suspension

  • Improved Auto Start Stop and Coasting functions
  • xDrive splits drive torque between the front and rear wheels more efficiently and can direct all torque to rear wheels
  • xDrive system weight has been reduced and its oil supply system optimized

It is familiar with the vehicle’s functions and is able to operate them as required.

That blue is just incredible.

I'll save my reservations about the tail lights until I see them in person, but overall this is a very solid design and going to sell like hotcakes.

i'm surprised at 2.9" longer. Makes it almost as long as my A4.... which is kinda pushing it as far as size. at least its lighter. And 3582 for a RWD 330i... uh where did the 55kg savings go?

Not sure about it myself, too much front end and not enough rear end it seems to fall away to nothing like the C-class, the rear on the F30 was much more squared off and seemed to push the car forward in its stance, the new one is too rounded and draws your eye from the roof line to the ground don't like it.

Wow I love the red color, but it's impossible to unsee the Lexus-ness from some angles


The white 3er G20 just looks ridiculously like a Lexus from the rear if you cover up the badge

That non M-Sport will need some time to get used to. Looks weird at the moment. M sport looks great though, and so does the interior!

It's an absolutely shame that apparently Europe will only get the M340i xDrive and not rearwheel-drive option.
I absolutely love my F30 340i especially cause it does not force me to allwheel drive like Audi (S4) or Mercedes (C43).

Everything else about the G20 sounds astonishing. And if the 330i really does 0-100 in 5.6 that could be quite okay too.

Non M trim looks quite nice with Luxury Line. Sport Line in white really needs some getting used to.

At a full 3 inches (76mm) longer than the outgoing car I’m afraid I may have to say bye bye to RWD and wait for the new 1er... this car has just got way too big now!!

Why do car makers absolutely insist on increasing the size of EVERY new model...???

This growth spurt makes no sense as the new 5 series only grew by an inch or so!!

Thumbs down G20 3 Series Sport - WEAK Exterior Design Elements

Regarding the Mineral White G20 3 Series Sport reviled on the stage...

WEAK Exterior Design Elements:
Front & Rear Bumpers
T-Shaped Air Intakes w/Fog Lights
Protruding Door Handles w/oval cut-outs
Butterfly Kidney Grill
Front wheel arch "sharp crease"

*Cant stand the closed Active Kidney Grille concept!!! Theses engines need air cooling at all times, don't want the vehicle to overheat ♨️ in New York stop and go traffic in when it fails!

Where is Chris Bangle when you need him?


The Sport Wheels are decent.

This car is quite attractive.... Especially the white non-Msport...
As much as I love my F30, this G20 is making mine start to look old, but

After further analysis:
It has a rear from a Audi, a side profile from Mercedes, and the front from the Lexus and Infiniti.
