What’s New for 2012?

At first glance, it is easy to see that the the new 3 series resembles the 5-Series and 7-Series.   What you may not notice, however, is that the new 3 is longer and wider than the outgoing model.  Reviewers have said the the car has an “athletic look”. The new 3-Series is nearly 2-inches wider than its predecessor by  over 3.5 inches.  Despite the redesign the new 3 series maintains a perfect  50/50 weight distribution and is actually 88 pounds lighter than the previous version.  With all the changes BMW claims the new 2012 to have more cabin and trunk space.  This time around BMW paid special attention to fuel efficiency.   BMW has included technologies like auto stop-start, brake energy and air conditioning that is completely separate from the engine.

Standard options:

  •  6.5-inch color display with iDrive
  • Bluetooth
  • USB connectivity
  •  step-up wheels (17-inch on 328i, 18-inch on 335i)

The 335i adds:

  • HID headlamps
  •  wood interior trim
  •  a moonroof
  •  powered front seats
  • an anti-theft alarm

328i– The 328i will be powered by BMW’s TwinPower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.  This little number will scoot from zero to 60 in 5.7 seconds.  The 328 will be available in the Luxury, Modern and Sport line.  Packaging and options are available that enhance everything from technology to upgraded sound.

335i- The 335i, a great option as well, with the 335i expect to pay a little more.  The 335i offers 300 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque from the amazing turbo charged 3.0L six cylinder engine.  The 335i will take you from zero to 60 in 5.4 seconds.  Like the 328i the 335i will be available in the Luxury, Modern and Sport Line.
