Judging by the latest spy photos, the next generation 2012 BMW 3 Series will feature square-shaped angel eyes lights. Back in 2009, the Vision Concept was the first BMW to sport the new headlights design, followed shortly by the Gran Coupe and late last year, the 6 Series Coupe Concept.
The 2012 BMW 3 Series will be the first car entering production with the new Angel Eyes and most likely other models will follow.
Our own Hugo Becker shared with us some his thoughts on the new F30 3 Series. “What BMWBLOG expects the new F30 2012 BMW 3 Series to be is based on what we can discern from press releases, our understanding of BMW’s ‘platform matrix’, and the continuing march forward of EfficientDynamics. As we previously wrote, the latest X3 is a good place to look for insights into the new 3er”, said Becker in recent editorial.
Further more, Becker says “the suspension will be the tried and true double-joint spring-strut (MacPherson strut) up front with the multi-link setup in the rear. It works well so there’s no big reason to fiddle with it. Engine options should be the new turbo four cylinder in the 328i and the N55 turbo six in the 335i. Expect the next generation M3 to get a turbo six cylinder also. There’s some hope that the Dynamic Handling Package will be available as an option.”
In our opinion, the new 2012 BMW 3 Series will be an evolution of the existing 3. It will appeal to a large number of potential buyers looking for a sporting premium sedan. And the new design language will make the car even more attractive, starting with the square-shaped lights.
