Should gain in size but at the same time shed weight too & may use CFRP parts (like in 7'er).

One can expect features like self park, fancy touch screen key as seen in the 7 series.

It is expected to be revealed in 2nd half of 2017

Hope this one don't get the grotesque headlamps from 7 series . Wish they end their obsession with run flats at least for India. The way BMW sales are going down, even with heavy discounts, they sure will need to be more proactive. Not to speak of how costly the 3 have become, can't imagine a 3 series costing ₹60 lakhs!

sad to see a gain in size I was hoping they would make it more taught and introduce some new styling to the car instead of infusing the boring styling cues from the 7 series just like other brands Audi and Mercedes are doing. Ah well there's always the 2 series for that. When will BMW launch the 2er in India?

BMW is rumored to unveil an all electric 3 Series in September, rivaling Tesla's Model 3.

Quote:
Now German newspaper Handelsblatt reports citing company sources that an electric BMW 3 Series is planned and should be unveiled as soon as in September at the IAA auto show in Frankfurt.
They are reportedly aiming for a range of ~400 km (250 miles), but they are likely referring to NEDC-rated range and therefore, the real-world range could be closer to ~200 miles.
BMW is definitely looking to compete with the Tesla Model 3, which some say is already affecting the vehicle’s sales.

Default 2019 BMW 3-Series spied

The BMW 3-series gets completely redesigned for the 2019 model year, and these images are our clearest look yet at what we can expect from the all-new compact luxury sedan.

Like its bigger 5- and 7-series stablemates, the new 3-series features large headlights that appear to merge into the brand’s classic kidney grille design.

Change also is afoot inside the new 3-series, which appears to usher in a new iDrive control knob, new center console buttons, and model-specific seats. As in other recent BMWs, the new 3 will have a center stack that’s curved toward the driver, and it will offer an optional digital gauge cluster and the latest iDrive software, which will include a touchscreen that works in conjunction with the console-mounted control knob.

Platform: The 2019 BMW 3-series will ride on the brand’s new “cluster architecture” platform, dubbed CLAR. (That platform also underpins the 5-series, the 7-series, the new 6-series Gran Turismo, and the new X3.)

Powertrain: The 3-series’ four-cylinder gas engines are said to carry over to the new car unchanged, plus or minus a few horsepower. Base models likely will continue to bear the 320i badge and rely on a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with about 180 horsepower, while 330i models will pack around 250 ponies. Rear-wheel-drive will be standard, with optional all-wheel-drive models getting the usual xDrive badge. The six-cylinder 340i may give way to a harder-edged M340i M Performance model with approximately 350 horses that will allow the 3-series to properly battle the Audi S4 and the Mercedes-AMG C43. The plug-in hybrid 330e is expected to see upgrades that will improve upon the current model’s paltry 14-mile all-electric EPA driving range. Additionally, BMW is expected to introduce a fully electric version of the new 3-series. The model will be aimed directly at the Tesla Model 3, and it should have over 200 miles of range.

All 2019 3-series trim levels will use an eight-speed automatic transmission; it’s possible that the manual transmission may not make it to America.

2019 BMW 3 Series (G20) was spotted testing in the US. Apart from the new styling, the next-gen 3 Series will be based on a new platform and will get updated equipment.
