Currently available BMW 3 Series was delivered about two years ago to the market and it seems that there will be some changes to the model that will be presented during this year. Reports suggest that the 2015 BMW 3 Series will receive few changes and improvements making it even better than before.
Recently we have received spy photos of a new 3 Series and we were able to notice slight changes on those images. Even it was offered with a lot of camouflage on the front end we could see slight differences between currently available version and the one that will be delivered. Main differences are related to the front end where we have redesigned bumper and more upright air intakes that will provide better air supply.
Overall look of the front end will be much more in line with other models like i8 and i3 at least that we were able to see through the camouflage. Final result will certainly be interesting and when all the camouflage comes off we are sure that again we have an attractive car. Many would say that these changes are only minor and we can agree with that but we need to add that it is better to have at least small changes than no changes.
2015 BMW 3 Series Changes
Other noticeable changes are related to the rear looks of the 2015 BMW 3 Series where we have slightly different tailpipe position. Current version offers one tailpipe for each side and in the case of this one we have two endings on the driver side. One of the reasons for this move might be the possible change in the engine department which could receive few new additions in its lineup. Reports suggest that new units could be offered and if this happen best options to look for a source is the Mini. These are only rumors but it seems that there could be new diesel and gasoline units included.
What we do know for sure is that the 2015 BMW 3 Series will come to a highly competitive and strong market segment of entry level luxury sedans. In this segment there are few quite interesting entries that will certainly be a great competition to BMW product. Among those on the U.S. market we certainly need to mention Mercedes C Class, Cadillac ATS and Audi A3 or even A4. All these models are offered with many different engines but only the ATS at this moment does not have the diesel option that could be attractive to many buyers on the U.S. market.
Since this is only a mild facelift with few minor changes we do not expect to see changes in the price. Slight corrections are expected but nothing huge and one of the reasons why there will be no major shifts is the fact that it needs to stay competitive in this segment also. Starting price should be about $33,000 while the sportier versions will go to more than $60,000 and even $70,000.
Release Date Of BMW 3 Series
Release date is another thing that we do not have official info. There is a good chance that it will be presented in the next few months while the sales and deliveries should start even before this year. We could see decent amount of interested buyers for the currently available model so the expectations are high.
