New renderings of the 2012 BMW 3 Series surface. With just weeks before its official web unveiling, the new 2012 BMW 3 Series sedan remains in the center of attention within the BMW community. The core of BMW sales, the 3 Series goes through a complete redesign with softer lines and inspiration taking from its older brother, the F10 5 Series sedan.

Spy photos and inside information reveal that the new F30 3 Series is a scaled down 5 Series, but with unique lines that will make it distinctive within the BMW family. The car also showcases corona rings with full LED treatment which are different from the current generation E90 due to a new design and a “squared” look. The headlights and the kidney grille will not follow the design lines seen on the recently unveiled 2012 BMW 1 Series, a controversial model among BMW fans (The renderings below feature similar headlights as the new 1 Series). The corona rings are different from the current generation E90 due to a new design and a “squared” look.

For the first time on a 3 Series, the new F30 will feature signal indicators placed on the side mirrors, a design cue driven by recent European car safety regulations.

At the back, the 2012 BMW 3 Series brings out a masculine design with a subtle trunk lid and the L-shaped taillights.

From the side, the new 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan is said to feature a double shoulder line that starts above the front wheel arch and extends to the rear. Despite the complicated and demanding pedestrian safety regulations, BMW managed to keep the car’s nose sitting low, offering a more dynamic look, somewhat similar to the 5 Series sedan.

With an evolutionary design, a common trait in the BMW design cycle, the new 2012 3 Series will appeal to an even broader audience and will have a positive effect on sales.

  1. Looks great actually. I think this takes the nose of the 1er and makes some huge improvements.

  2. Bry says:

    This looks great! There are definitely 1-series elements but without the awkward area between the kidney grille and the headlights. I’d be thrilled if it looks like this… 

  3. Manchester Man says:

    Nice!

  4. Mr. Guest says:

    Great? I know its subjective, but this is almost as ugly as it can be.

  5. Sam Kramer says:

    Please no… I’ll take a smaller 5er… :|

  6. LexusLVR says:

    The current 3er looks like a Hyundai. I don’t like it. But this looks much better. It has “BMW” written over it and not “Hyundai”.

  7. Faust says:

    I am afraid the front is not far off the real thing…not quite the piece of shit the new 1er is but WHAT THE HELL is going on with these headlights BMW??? Who the hell approves these hideous things? There are no two ways to see these late BMW designs anymore. There is no “it will grow on you” element. The New 1er is a plain PIECE OF SHIT and this is not far off either…

    Looks like a tuna sandwich on wheels

  10. Viper says:

    Oh……looks like one series…bit better….
    they should distance every series from other even though looking like this.
    every series should have unique look

  11. PsychoDad says:

    Ugly. E90 looks much better

    There are no 1er elements here, this is 5 series overpaint, and IMO it doesnt look great! The 3er now is the most beautiful car ever!

  14. Thefan415 says:

    SMH…Bangle did make a couple of crap designs (5 and 7 series IMO), but at least the cars were distinguishable.  The new BMW’s are too conservative with the same looking front end it seems.

    longg live the E39
