Article by Christian Andrei, on October 25, 2010

It’s not a secret anymore that Bmw is currently working on the next-generation 3-Series which is set to make its debut in 2012. According to Autocar, the Bavarian manufacturer says that the new car will carry state-of-the-art technology, which will enable it to react intelligently with local road conditions in order to allow better fuel consumption, as well as a higher level of safety.

Described as “Connected Drive meets Efficient Dynamics”, the new car is expected to be the leader in its segment when it will be introduced on the market.

ConnectedDrive system delivers all the information the driver needs to know about its vehicle, in order to take the best decisions about the way the car operates.

New sensors will be installed at the exterior of the car, such as a new laser all-round parking sensors, nose-mounted camera, but also light and rain sensors.

The information coming into the vehicle will also be received from future interconnected traffic signage as well as other live information, such as traffic reports downloaded from the internet.

A 3D navigation is also expected. Regarding the fuel consumption, this is expected to be improved by 15 percent, while the CO2 emissions (on the 320d model) will be around 99 g/km.
