BMW has heavily reworked on the interior cabin of the new 3-Series, and in the process, the cabin looks much flashier and technology-welcoming than before. There is an array of new electronically controlled features onboard, all of which make the cabin of the BMW 3-Series feel very futuristic.
The complete layout of the dashboard has been revised, with the welcoming addition of an all-new free-standing wide trapezoidal 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system at the top. This system houses all the controls related to iDrive, infotainment and navigation, but misses out on the crucial inclusion of Android Auto at this price.

The rounded design of the window frames towards the rear restyled outside rearview mirrors look nice as well, thus aiding in overall fine aerodynamics of the car.
At the back, BMW has completely restyled the tail lamps of the car, which look very sleek and much wide with crisp looking L-shaped LED inserts in them. The lower boot lid hump gives it a more elegant stance, though the rear profile of the car does possess a hint of sportiness in its rear bumper corner inserts and twin exhaust pipes.
BMW 3 Series Sedan Ride & Handling
The BMW 3-Series has always been known for its sharp handling, thus giving it a good stature of the best entry-level luxury saloon from the perspective of drivers.
