The new BMW 3 Series is due to be launched in Malaysia at the end of November.It gets a much sportier and aggressive outlook now.The new BMW 3 Series kidney kidney grill is bigger than the previous one, and it also gets new fog lights. It gets a redesigned bonnet as well – the BMW logo that seats proudly at the centre is now flanked by pronounced bumps that will help differentiate the new to the old. The 335i gets a new headlamp assembly which houses orange-coloured LED daytime running and signal lights. BMW’s signature “angel eye” headlight thankfully remain, and this time around, been given brighter bi-xenon lights.
Tail lamp cluster were redesigned too. Like the headlight, the rear also sees the application of LEDs over a conventional bulb.The lower side skirts are much wider than before, apparently for both aesthetic and aerodynamic reason.It also gets new rear bumpers, together with that two exhaust muffler.
The interior sees new ergonomic improvements and some add-ons too – the angle of all four side door panel has been slightly repositioned, and the dashboard is now tilted more towards the driver. Extra vanity light, air condition outlets for the rear occupants and more trim and interior colour options are other improvements worth mentioning.
