Following the sedan’s footsteps, the already perfectly executed 3-Series Coupe model will receive a mid-cycle facelift early next year. From the streets of Munich, the fellows at MotorAuthority are bringing us some latest spy shots of a prototype spotted during testing.
The Coupe and Convertible models will receive new headlights and taillights treatment, along with revised/redesigned front and rear bumpers, and new side skirts. A new set of oversized and less sleek side mirrors are being tested on the current prototype.
The interior design is also rumored to get a small upgrade, with improved trim and a new center armrest. Similar to the recently unveiled BMW X1, the heated seats buttons are now located onto the air control panel.
While BMW has never confirmed the addition of a new engine or other mechanical updates, MotorAuthority speculates that EfficientDynamics technologies like brake energy regeneration system and stop-start function will make their way into the facelifted Coupe.
The facelifted Coupe and Convertible models are expected to make their debut next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show.[Source: MotorAuthority ]
