The latest G20 BMW 3 Series is another car that is making its debut at the 2019 Singapore Motor Show, albeit as a preview. A core model in the German carmaker’s line-up, the sedan being presented here is the 330i variant trimmed with M Sport items.
Compared to its predecessor, the F30, the G20 is 76 mm longer (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). Under the skin, the new 3 Series benefits from an increased use of aluminium and high-strength steels, so it’s now up to 55 kg lighter than before.
Styling-wise, the new 3er gets larger kidney grilles at the front that are now joined in the middle, which are also linked to the headlamps. The latter on this unit features U-shaped daytime running lights, which are an option in certain markets.
As for the rear, new LED taillights feature a three-dimensional L-shaped design and tinted clusters. The rear reflectors are positioned higher and merge with the base of the boot lid, while the dual exhaust are highlighted by bulges in the lower apron.
The interior follows in the footsteps of recent BMW models like the G15 8 Series, G05 X5 and G29 Z4 by adopting a similar dashboard layout. This particular unit comes with the Live Cockpit Professional package that includes a 10.25-inch centre screen and 12.3-inch instrument display, with both powered by the new BMW Operating System 7.0.
Under the hood, the 330i comes with a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder making 258 hp and 400 Nm of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
