The new 3 Series: concept & overview
Quicker. Smarter. More refined.
Shown here is a 330i
(European version) with
Sport Package.
New technology and style.
The BMW 3 Series, as just about
everyone who cares about cars
knows, is an icon. It’s an icon for
many reasons: its style, its quality, its
unique combination of performance,
practicality and European luxury in
a compact package.
Yet above all, the 3 Series’ undisputed
status as an icon stems from how it
drives . For decades, BMW has
essentially owned the whole concept
of agility; the 3 Series has always
been remarkably agile and pleasur-
able to drive without compromising
comfort and everyday practicality
and usability, and no one else quite
knew how to match this constellation
of attributes.
The new 3 Series, appearing first as the E90
Sedans, builds on this core concept with –
An all-new design that perfectly blends
3 Series character and tradition with progres-
sive esthetics and enhanced functionality.
All-new engines that retain the unique
smoothness and sound of BMW’s inline
6-cylinder format while offering more power,
more torque, even more refined delivery of
power, and new technology so exciting that
it’s a complete story in itself.
All-new suspension that combines the
refined road manners of larger, more costly
BMWs with the agility of the more compact
3 Series…plus innovations in steering,
brakes and stability systems as well.
Greater body rigidity , more efficient
aerodynamics and even more effective
management of crash forces.
More space for rear passengers and cargo.
Greater luxury and convenience , including
numerous features previously offered only
in the 5, 6 and 7 Series.
New safety features , including rear Head
Protection for the first time in the 3 Series
(front HPS has always been standard in
E46 3 Series Sedans).
As the first models of the 5th-generation
3 Series, the E90 325i and 330i Sedans enter
production in March 2005 as 2006 models.
The 325xi and 330xi all-wheel-drive Sedans
(which are also covered in this Product Infor-
mation Book) and E91 Sports Wagons follow
in September ’05. Still later, E92 Coupes and
E93 Convertibles will make their debut.
New through and through, yet
firmly grounded in 3 Series
From their low, wind-slicing front end through
upswept side character line and beltline to a
high trunklid that enhances aerodynamics
and cargo space, the ’06 3 Series Sedans are
the logical progression from their E46 prede-
cessors. Not only does the first glance tell
you that this is a BMW; it also tells you that
this is a 3 Series.
Incrementally larger and roomier,
yet still truly compact
Compared to their predecessors, the new
3 Series Sedans grow in nearly every dimension.
Wheelbase is up by 1.4 inches; length is 2.2
in. greater than before; width is up by fully
3 in.; and the new models are 0.8 in. taller.
These gains in exterior dimensions pay off in
greater passenger and cargo room: shoulder
room (+1.0 in. front/0.9 in. rear); head room
(+0.4 in. front); rear knee room (+0.8 in.);
interior volume (+6.1%) and trunk space
(+12.1%). But there’s no hint that the 3 Series
is abandoning its tradition of compact exterior
dimensions (see nearby table), and despite
extensive new content, weight is up less than
100 lb. on most versions (data for all-wheel-
drive models are preliminary).
