BMW Introduces All-New 2012 3 Series Sedan
Bigger, but more fuel efficient, BMW has unveiled the 6th generation 3 Series Sedan. It's expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms in February 2012. Nearly four inches longer and 88 pounds lighter than its predecessor, the 2012 3 Series is roomier and more economical. BMW's revamped engine lineup includes a new 4-cylinder turbo in the 328i, and a 6-cylinder turbo in the 335i. A trio of trim levels will be available -- the Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, or buyers can opt for a new 8-speed automatic which can be upgraded with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts with the Sport Line and M Sport package.
