Next BMW 3-Series Spotted, Zee Germans Get Fat

By | January 9, 2011

New BMW 3-Series

BMW’s current 3-Series is arguably the best sports saloon in the history of the world. But like all other cars and Americans, they are bound to get fat. So says these new spy shots of the next generation BMW 3-Series caught winter testing somewhere cold and icy (Heidi Montag’s soul maybe?).

According to Autocar, the extra mass is thanks to a wider and longer chassis that is more like the outgoing 5-Series than the current 3-Series. The disguise swirls on this test car also do a fantastic job of hiding anything that would make the car stick out from a crowd. In short, it looks predictable. Good thing the 3-Series is best known for what’s under the skin and not so much the skin itself.

It’s tough to make a judgement call just yet, but the direction BMW has taken the past few years isn’t what I hoped.
