BMW turns 100 this year, and while it is a momentous landmark for the brand, the German car manufacturer continues to look to the future. In fact, the 2018 iteration of the 3 Series has been spied on German streets, sporting a highly-camouflaged livery.
Details about the inside of the car are sketchy at best but it is clear that this latest model is close in looks to the soon-to-be-released 5 Series. The most noticeable changes can be seen in the headlights which are rounder than those on the current model. The eye-catching tail lights appear to be enlarged too. The double-kidney grille is present, a feature that first appeared as far back as 1933 on the BMW 303.
It is thought that interior space will be increased, particularly in regards to boot capacity and rear-seat passenger room. At the same time, weight will be decreased. Efficiency is likely to improve so don’t be surprised to see petrol and diesel engines joined by plug-in hybrid and hydrogen fuel-cell technology.
The finished article will make its official debut in Europe in 2018 and we will bring you more news as and when we get it.
