Update: Full coverage on New BMW 3 Series.
On Friday, October 14th, 2011, BMW will unveil the latest generation 3 Series. Ahead of the world premiere, new spy photos appear on the interwebs, and the latest ones gives us a closer look at the interior design of the F30 3 Series Sedan.
As we anticipated, the interior follows the design language introduced in the new 5 Series and most recently, in the F20 1 Series Hatchback. First cue that stands out is the standalone sitting LCD screen.
Remaining true to its core values, BMW has redesigned the cockpit to be even more driver oriented, creating a deeper synergy between the driver and the machine.
The dashboard, controls and gauges with Black Panel technology are derived from the more luxurious 5 Series Sedan and Gran Turismo. The test mule spied below comes equipped with automatic transmission, but it remains unknown at the moment if BMW will offer the efficient and smooth ZF 8-speed gearbox.
Stay tuned later this week for an abundance of 3 Series articles and photos.jokeforblog ]
