2011 BMW 3 Series first images image

Here are the first images showing the next generation 2011 BMW 3 Series, a car that will compete with the current A4 and the upcoming Merc C Class.
Also, the next 3 series will come with the company’s super-efficient three-cylinder powerplant. As you can see, the design mix influences from the original Concept CS – first revealed at the 2007 Shanghai Motor Show with those of the latest 5-Series GT.

Essentially one half of the firm’s new 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine, a new 1.5-litre three-
cylinder unit will be available in petrol and diesel form.

BMW plan to offer the most advanced 3-Series ever, fitted with all the usual EfficientDynamics gizmos – including stop-start and energy recuperation

The 2011 BMW 3 Series is set to be unveiled officially in the coming months, with sales starting in early 2011 most probably.

  • titi

    Less than my expectations

    • Gerald Pinto

      Have to agree with you. was looking for something really different esp. in the front end. Disappointed.

  • john

    this better be a joke, it doesnt look as good as the currect model

    • Gerald

      Hi, I;m with you on this one. i really thought BMW would give Audi a run for their money. I'm currently looking at Audi's and test driving them. They look good.

  • d harvey

    c class looks better

    • deon

      The E46 was the best bmw shape. They have gone downhill since then. Merc is much better looking.

  • ahmed elbialy

    the front is ok but the rear is not, over all the current model is better than that.

  • Vic

    Looks like BMW is wanting to appeal more to the Merc client segment. It's a pity BMW, you should stay unique. Your current E90 is definately more down a BMW fans alley.

  • Gandalf

    The E90 was yet another Bangle monstrosity. This one looks a wee bit better…

  • Radagast

    They're not official piccies lol … they are mockup's by those cheeky people at Autoexpress. See their logo all over the 'images'. Digital fakes. There are better images in Autocar out this week. At least BMW are moving away from those awful ugly crunched up designs of the Bangle 1,3, 5, and 7…

    I a looking forward to owning the 335. BMW is still leading when it comes to innavation and design.

  • MJ Mothapo

    It look good, lets see if it performs as it looks, but the side mirrors – not doing it for me.

  • TY Hong

    It took BMW over 8 years to get the world used to the Bangle design language. Shock as may be, at first, the world start to get it, and it's been copied by numerous others: Merc, Volvo, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, etc.

    And then, BMW decides to trash all that effort and go back to something watered down and tame. Tsk, tsk. And, all their cars now start to look the same – following the model strategy of Merc, Audi and Volvo. Why…

  • Haroon

    The F10 5 series was not shown to be as good as it actually was in concept pictures. The same with this hopefully……

  • haroon

    acutally is**

  • mohamed

    let's see the interiors and new options and videos if you can

  • Jean

    When is BMW releasing this model??

  • XANDER CAGE

    THE REASON SOME PEOPLE DO LIKE IT AND SOME DO NOT IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THERE ARE 3 MAJOR WORLD CAR MANUFACTURERS IN THE WORLD THAT REALY MATTER AND THOSE ARE MERCEDES AUDI AND BMW . EACH OF THEM MUST ESTABLISH A BOLD NEW LOOK AS TIME GOES BY TO TRY AND TOP EACH OTHER . WE CAN SEE THAT IN AUDI WITH ITS DESTINGUESHED HEADLIGHTS , THE BMW WITH THE NEW FORM IN THE REAR AND MERCEDES WITH BOTH . IT WIL GROW ON US AS TIME GOES BY ; TRUST ME :-)

  • Noble Clergy

    Cant wait for the price of the e90 335 coupe to go down coz every body will be rushing forthis crap……. Im gunning for one in the second half!!

  • thomas

    hunday sonata copy. Ha ha ha

  • David

    The current 3 series suffered from a lot of disappointing technical problems, electrical and sensor type problems. Lets hope BMW have resolved this and are not heading in the same direction as Mercedes several years ago.
