A look in the past from the launch event, 2nd gen 3 Series.
Inside, the circular, more organic theme of earlier BMW cars has been replaced with an angular design, like in the new 8-Series and X5
The new 3 Series folows a similar design strategy to what BMW has followed with the latest 5-Series and 7-Series as well but the interpretation here is sharper
The 3-Series also moves to the CLAR architecture, sharing it with the 5-Series. (Picture of the BMW 5 series for reference)
It debuted at the 2018 Paris Motor Show and saw a global launch in March
The car has been reworked completely and is now larger and lighter than before
