2012 Bmw 328i and 335i U.S. pricing announced

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 23, 2011

Pricing details for BMW North America’s two top gasoline engines that are set to debut at the 2012 North America International Auto Show in Detroit have been announced. BMW has replaced the 3.0-liter straight-six in the old 328i with a 2.0-liter turbo in the new one. From the previous base price of $34,600, it has now been raised to $35,775.

This indicates that there’s a $1,175 premium to the features and extra sheetmetal of the F30 3-Series. The 335i, the most powerful engine in the 3-Series, has a new starting price of $43,275 for the 2012 model year.

This is a $1,225 increase. These will both come with the new lines, Sport, Luxury and Modern, aside from the M Sport Package. The new 3 Series Sedan is the sixth generation of the top-selling premium vehicle in the world. It enhances the brand’s sporting character with its dynamic lines and athletic overall impression.

When it comes to dimensions, the new 3 Series Sedan has also increased. What’s especially remarkable are its wider track and more impressive on-the-road presence. The flat design of the revised BMW kidney grille is also intended to emphasize the sporting feel of the car. This is a modern version of the classic three-box design that has a sweeping bonnet, short front overhang, long wheelbase and set-back greenhouse that enables the new BMW 3 Series Sedan to project the dynamic attraction that’s to be expected from BMW.

Exterior Design

BMW 3-Series Sedan is the first compact sports sedan and has since become the icon when it comes to cutting-edge design, sporting capability and dynamics that only the German carmaker can give you. It is no wonder why it is the best-selling premium car in the world.

Bmw's sixth generation 3-Series Sedan has elegant and dynamic lines that underline the athletic character of the model. The newest 3-Series is bigger, wider, and longer than the previous model but it still has the same perfect balance of elegance and ruggedness. Similarly to its predecessors, the sedan’s proportions are shaped by the hood, short overhang at the front, greenhouse that is set back, and the long wheelbase.

The silhouette of the new 3-Series has a wedge shape and it has a wider track that highlights the athletic and aggressive look of the new car. By drawing attention to the wideness of the car, the surfaces of the front end give the 3-Series a more daring stance.

The forward slanting kidney grille is now wide and squat, directing your attention to the stance of the 3-Series.

There are LED accent lights that look like eyebrows when seen with the twin headlights. The headlamps and corona rings make the BMW look more focused. The headlights now reach the frame of the grille making it look like a single solid unit further highlighting the car’s bold stance.

BMW 3-Series Sedan does not have the central air intake that you see in previous models. Instead, you now have two bigger intakes that are located under the headlights and extend to the outer edges of the front. These give additional depth to the car’s design. On the furthest end of the main ducts, you would see small vertical intakes that make up the “Air Curtain”. The Air Curtain improves the flow of air around the wheels in the front, while also improving the aerodynamics and lowering fuel consumption when you go fast.
