As we approach the launch of the new F30 3 Series Sedan and more and more spy shots are starting to reveal the final design, car magazines around the world continue to render the upcoming 3er.

Next attempt comes from German publication AutoTest and as expected, the renders “describe” the F30 3 Series as an evolution of the current model with 5 Series design influences.

Just like the F20 BMW 1 Series, the F30 3 Series receives additional signal indicators placed on the side mirrors. The corona rings are different from the current generation E90 due to a new design and a “squared” look.

The side design sports a double shoulder line that starts above the front wheel arch and extends to the rear. The L-shape form will remain a BMW design core element in the taillights which resemble in a way the ones found in the 5er.

The official debut will take place in November with sales beginning in Spring 2012.

    Looks like a shrunken 5-series, not that that is a bad thing. I hope there’s enough of a difference that it doesn’t become like Audi, i.e., cookie-cutter styling.

    In the back it looks like a Merc….

    Too big as a 3 series, which means the driving pleasure is again, declining, even for the 3 series.. The back looks ok but the front is, not as good as it should be as a BMW (bad as the 5 series).

    NICE.

    Beatifull! Really NICE !!! Present BMW 3 series is great car, but produced little to long. Other premium car brands have facelifted or give new generations (Audi A4/A5, Merc C class, Volvo S60/V60)… I don’t say current BMW 3 is old (technology is superb, engines are brilliant), but it needs some refreshment. I hope New 3-series will come soon!
