2013 BMW 3-Series gets new facelift and new four-bangers


Here is a sneak peek of the 2013 BMW 3-Series. Like with many BMW iterations, only subtle changes are made in the 2013 BMW 3-Series. BMW will introduce its next generation BMW 3-Series with the codenamed F30, in the first quarter of 2012. BMW will offer five different 3-Series body styles for the first time with the standard four-door sedan in March 2012, touring wagon in September 2012, coupe in September 2013, and the hardtop convertible model in the third quarter of 2013.

The BMW 3-Series comes with four engine configurations for the new four bangers. From a 136 horsepower 1.6-liter to a 252 horsepower 2.0-liter gas engines, and 150 horsepower 1.6-liter to 245-hp 2.0-liter turbo diesel engines. No words on the V6 engine yet but we assume it will be same as this year model.

The next-generation BMW M3 also come in coupe and convertible models, and both will likely get a 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight six-cylinder engine that pumps out about 450 hp. Below is the spy video of the 2013 BMW 3-Series.
