New BMW 3-Series Goes All In On Tech

Technology is front and center in the new BMW 3-Series, including a new infotainment system and digital key. Car manufacturers have to change with the times. After all, everyone has smart devices on their person or in their pocket all day long, so why not add some of that tech to our new cars? That's what BMW is working on. Its new 3-Series is going to have lots of new tech toys for you to play with. Let's take a closer look at what the 3-Series is bringing to the table in the not-too-distant future. New Model, New Body The new 3-Series might not look too different from the previous entries in this series, but it's what's on the inside that counts. .

In this case, that means a new body shell that cuts an astonishing 121 pounds off the car's total weight by swapping pure steel with a frame that blends classic high-strength steel with lower-weight aluminum. The slightly larger body frame doesn't interfere with the car's aerodynamics, though. The new 3-Series has a fantastic drag coefficient of 0.26 — older cars, by comparison, have a drag coefficient between 0.7 and 0.9. The first model in this lineup will be the 2019 330i, which will have a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. Then we'll see the M340i and the 330e hybrid, although we probably won't see the last one until 2020. .
