BMW’s all-new 3-series has been spied completely undisguised ahead of its planned October reveal. These images were taken while the new four-door saloon, codenamed F30, was filming a commercial in Barcelona earlier this week.
The pictures reveal a much bolder and distinctive front-end than earlier spy images of the car had indicated. The front light clusters extend all the way to the 3-series’ reshaped kidney grille in a departure from the 5-series-inspired look for the new 3-series’ front-end that had been expected.
This front-end treatment for the lights and grille, along with the full-width air ducts and LED light strips in the lower section of the front bumper, give the new 3-series a lower, wider stance than the current car.
The new 3-series’s rear-end is more high-set than the current car and the sides more heavily sculpted sides with a prominent shoulder line. There’s also a sleeker design for the wing mirrors, more defined wheel arches, a heavily angled rear window and a higher bootline.
