BMW has launched its eagerly awaited sixth-generation 3 Series. Be sure to read a driving impression by CAR’s deputy editor, Mike Fourie, in the February 2012 issue.
Due for its local launch next year, the 3 Series is the most important model in BMW’s line-up. So while the marque often experiments with the design of other, more niche models, it is understandable that playing it safe is the name of the game when it comes to the 3. Essentially, the new C-Class fighter looks like a smaller 5 Series, with the same headlight treatment and character lines on the bonnet.
