The new BMW 3-series will be unveiled with outstanding performance later in this year. However, in the late summer it will be coming up with mid-life facelift to compete with new Mercedes-Benz updated C-class, Audi A4 and Jaguar XE. The model being developed as a diesel model will add to its range 3-cylinder engine and super-frugal hybrid along with 100g/km less emitting CO2. Although, last year BMW dominated its executive compact-class for longer along with its convertible and coupe models rename decision for as 4-series did not put an end the sales domination for 3-series.


Ian Roberston, head of the sales and marketing said to Autocar that, "The BMW models never had or will underestimate any competition as this industry has always had been got the moving agenda. In today's competition this new BMW 3-series is far ahead built offering with generations success as always with successful vehicles which been attracting again and again customers time." He further said that, to be in front BMW has got many exciting stuffs in its pipeline to do everything.

According to the clues given by the BMW insiders, the up-rated 320d Efficient Dynamics when linked to the automatic gearbox will emit CO2 less than the 100g/km. Although, the Jaguar sales double with annual sales targeting around 80,000 XE models having lowest-emissions with four-cylinder 2.0L diesel engine which generates 161bhp outputs. Also, its manual gearbox emits 99g/km CO2 with 75mpg and with automatic 8-speed gearbox it rise to 104g/km. Where, the BMW sells its 3-series model a year around more than that of 500,000 units.

Moreover, 3-series plug-in hybrid is also on its way being prepared for 2016 debut. This will include three-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines with official 150mpg as average that will produce up-to 50g/km of CO2.

The three-cylinder 1.5L units will supplant the current 316d 2.0L and 316i 1.6L engines such that its power and torque matches or exceed engines today's equivalent figures. Thus, BMW puts-up 10% as a result for the kerb weight which gets reduced and offers improvement in crash protection including fuel savings. Other than that, BMW is up-to offer with more of the powerful variant of petrol three-cylinder engines for 228bhp and 236bhp at 5800rpm and 3700rpm respectively.

The insiders also hinted before Jaguar XE get launched that as optional the revised BMW 3-series been planned to offer with a much set-up suspension, firmer and sportier vehicles. The new look appearance for 3-series range has minor styling tweaks with some remodeled headlamps and redesigned bumper. Its interior features with improved cabin quality using most of the chrome and high quality components. Also, inside it will be available with latest ambient lighting as an option along with multi-media to lift the interior perceived quality.
