Information

 Information

The E90 3 Series will be a little larger than the current 3-Series, built on a longer version of the excellent 1 Series platform, with design elements of current BMW models. Official BMW website can be found here...

The future 3-series will consist of only two models, with separate E numbers. These models are the four-door Sedan (E90) and the five-door Touring (E91). Expect to see the Sedan and the Touring at the 2005 Geneva and Frankfurt auto shows respectively.

The Coupé (E92) and the Cabrio (E93) may become the first 4 Series models. The Coupé should be introduced at the 2006 Paris auto show while the Cabrio should be first seen at the 2007 Detroit auto show.

In the performance department, the 330i motor goes from a standing start to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, while the 325i takes only 0.7 seconds longer. The 330i motor has a top speed of 250 km/h. The 320d engine has 8.2 0 to 100 km/h times with a top speed of 225 km/h. Active Steering is an option on the 325i and 330i models. More...

 Engines

BMW will offer the usual complement of straight-sixes and diesels in the new E90 3 Series, including the advanced technology 320d diesel and 330i petrol engines.

The 330i is the all-new lightweight 3.0-litre Valvetronic petrol engine featured in the BMW 630i 6 Series. In BMW's ongoing pursuit of weight reduction, this engine is the first in large-scale series production to use magnesium which, compared to aluminum, is 30 percent lighter. Magnesium is used in the crankcase, the crankshaft bearings and the cylinder head cover.
