BMW has sold over 15 million 3 Series since introducing the nameplate back in 1975, meaning its the most successful model of the Bavarian carmaker. Codenamed G20, its seventh generation was unveiled in the flesh at the 2018 Paris Motor Show only in sedan guise, with other body variations to be launched in the future. The G20 is a lot larger than its F30 predecessor in almost every way, making it about as big as 5 Series of the E39 variety.
The all-new 3 Series Sedan is therefore 76 mm longer (at 4,709 mm), 16 mm wider (1,827 mm), 1 mm taller (1,442 mm) and has a 41 mm longer wheelbase (2,851 mm). Thanks to wider front and rear tracks, the model not only features much improved interior volume but should also offer better agility. For the first time in its segment, the 3 Series G20 features optional Adaptive LED headlights with BMW's Laserlight technology, with the car also now coming with the recently introduced BMW Operating System 7.0. An assortment of turbocharged four and six cylinder engines are available at the start of sales, both diesel and gasoline.
