What's New For 2019 BMW 3 Series?

This year looks like it's set to be a great year for new cars, and the 2019 BMW 3 Series is no different, as it's set to take a pretty big leap forward compared to some of its predecessors. This all comes down to the high level of competition over the last few years.

After all, the BMW 3 Series has often been seen as the king of the mountain, but this increased competition has seen the series come close to losing that perch. Because of that, the 2019 version sees a few new features, as well as improvements from previous models. However, most of the improvements seem to be on features that made many fall in love with the 3 series before.

The outside of the car has seen a drastic change, especially when it comes to the rear design. Compared to the previous models, the trunk lid is a lot more angled and upright, as well as having an embedded lip spoiler.

Add in some new housing for the taillights and more, and you've got more changes that you could have asked for. While these may not seem like massive changes themselves, when added up, it certainly makes for a massive change, and hopefully for the better.

What are the Latest Features for 2019?

Compared to previous models, there doesn't seem to be much of a change with this years 3 Series interior. The overall cabin also hasn't been changed too much, with the look and feel of the interior being awfully similar to that of the 2018 3 Series.

That being said, there are one or two major changes that are definitely beneficial. Chief among these is the fact that, where previous models used an analog instrument cluster, the 2019 BMW 3 Series finally went completely digital; because of that, it's got a more modern feel compared to previous versions.

Lastly is what could be called the infotainment section, which has seen an almost complete overhaul; much of this has been aesthetic, although it also means that much of the controls are now easier to use. Aside from this, there hasn't been much of a change to the interior, as we already mentioned, although it does have a more modern feel.

The BMW 3 Series Horsepower has Increased by How Much?

In terms of horsepower and all-round driving quality, there's a definite improvement here compared to the 2018 3 Series; not only is it now pumping out 255 horsepower, an increase of about 75 hp. There's also a massive difference in the likes of torque.

While the 2018 version had 200 lb-ft of torque to the 320i and 248 and 258 lb-ft to the 330i, the new release brings in improvements on all fronts; now, it can easily boast 37 lb.-ft. more than the previous car. This is down to a few different things, with the biggest being the fact that it has an upgraded injection system, as well as better engine management across its software.

A lighter crankshaft and better heat management also means that it can easily handle the extra power while also making sure that the drive is just as smooth, if not smoother, than many of the previous models.

2019 BMW 3 Series Safety Features

2019 BMW 3 Series Interior Drivers SeatSafety is one of the biggest things that BMW focused on with the 2019 3 Series; after all, there's no point in putting in all that extra horsepower if they didn't upgrade safety features. Chief among these is a display area that's about 70% larger than before, so there'll be no problem with seeing warning signs etc.

As standard, it will come with forward-collision warning and city-speed automatic emergency braking. Add in the likes of pedestrian detection, rear cameras and an adaptive cruise control system, and it's safer than previous models, even with all that extra power packed into the engine.

The 3 Series must be experienced in person and what better way than to come into our dealership in Lincoln and take a test drive.
