BMW has posted on social media a video teaser of the updated 3-Series, showcasing the revised front end ahead of the model’s imminent debut.

Short video shows redesigned LED headlights that have already appeared in the Chinese specification BMW i3 eDrive35L. We also saw some photos of Chinese specs updated BMW 3 Series comes from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, although we cannot be sure that US and EU models will inherit the same design features. Also, the Chinese model only appeared with the M Sport Package bumpers, so we’re looking forward to seeing what BMW has in mind for the base 3er specification.

In addition to the headlights, compared to the current 3rd series, changes are expected in the radiator grille, air intakes and rear bumpers, as well as new wheel designs and a wider color palette. The Tourist body style will live as a practical alternative to the traditional four-door sedan. Finally, BMW also, again, offers an extra Parts M Performance for those looking to bring the 3-Series closer to the M3 in terms of style, while there will also be Alpina B3 special.

Inside, the model will inherit a new digital cab with a curved panel and the latest Operating system 8 which has already found its way into several new BMW offerings, including a new one The flagship of the 7th series. Hardware can also get more sophisticated ADAS systems, as segment buyers are quite demanding on technology.

The range of 3-series engines is likely to include slightly updated petrol and diesel transmissions, as well as options for soft hybrids and hybrid batteries. Unlike the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which has become just a four-cylinder, the updated BMW 3-Series will retain a 3.0-liter straight six-cylinder twin-turbo for sports M340i options. We will learn all about the updated model from its quick debut.
