The German based automaker BMW has finally revealed its 2012 3-Series, choosing an interesting virtual location for the event: Facebook. The Bavarian manufacturer has released official technical details and prices for its new generation of the BMW 3-Series, and the vehicles are offering extra interior space, just like the new 5-Series.
According to BMW, the new generation of the 3-Series has been priced between 35.350 EUR, for the 320d, and 43.600 EUR for the 335i, and while BMW Europe was busy announcing the details for the 3-Series, the UK Division of the automaker has released its prices for the local auto market as seen below.
The German automaker says that three new engines will be added in less than a month, the 316d, 318d diesels, with their 116 and 143 horsepower, and the 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol unit, which will make its way on the 320i, developing 184 horsepower and 270 Nm of torque.
All the engines in the new BMW 3-Series will be fitted with the stop / start technology and the vehicles will feature the Driving Experience Control. Besides the COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ the German automaker has also featured and Eco Pro mode, which can help improve the fuel consumption up to 20 percent, depending on the individual driving style.
BMW says the 320d EfficientDynamics Edition will be the most fuel efficient version, burning just 4.1 liter every 100 km in an average cycle and emitting 109 g/km CO2, all of this from its 163 horsepower engine. But this isn’t the only surprise BMW has for us and the new 335i has an average fuel consumption set between 7.2 and 7.9 liters / 100 km from its six-cylinder engine developing 306 HP, being the most powerful version until the new M3 arrives.
