2018 BMW 3-Series M Sport — All-new 2018 BMW 3 Series Spotted Testing in M Sport Guise. BMW 3 Series has been spotted testing several times, and we even got a glimpse of the interior a few months ago. Now, new spy shots of the bestselling car have been captured again.
But this time, for the first time it was dressed in M Sport Guise. All this time, the prototypes that we have seen are all in the sedan body. However, some reports claim that Touring, GT and M3 model will also follow very soon.
2018 BMW 3-Series M Sport Specifications
The all New 2018 BMW 3-Series M Sport prototype was covered in camouflage ( you can see the real spy shot pictures at Carscoops and AutoEvolution). But, thanks to the trunk spoiler lip, a pair of chunky exhaust tips and larger brake, we can easily spot that it could be the M Sport version instead of the ordinary model.
Furthermore, the camouflage in the front bumper was treated differently. And, it definitely indicates that the car will come with more aggressive style.
We don’t have any information yet regarding the cabin. However, since the new 3 Series M Sport will benefit from the CLAR platform that also underpins larger 5 and 7 Series, it consequently grows longer and wider as well.
Hence, more spacious cargo and rear cabin are to be expected. Despite of the increase in size, the weight of the car is reduced pretty significantly. It is reported that the weight loss reaches around 176 pounds (80 kg).
Engine Specifications — BMW 3-Series M Sport 2018
Like usual, the 3-cylinder, 4-cylinder, and BMW’s pride inline-six engine will be available in the all new 2018 BMW 3-Series M Sport engine lineup. However, since this is BMW we are talking about—and the best-selling 3 Series for that matter—we definitely can expect some sorts of performance boost and even better fuel efficiency.
A plugin hybrid version with even better range than 330e is also currently planned. If all goes well, it can be launched at the same time with the rest of the standard model. Furthermore, more powerful M3 is also definitely will join the lineup but no details yet regarding its performance.
