BMW 3 Series Restyling is now close to the debut and the spy photos today show a copy of the sedan comes only adhesive films on some details of the front and tail, just to hide the updated design of the headlights.
Long wheelbase. What can be seen just by looking carefully at the side is the longer wheelbase 3 Series: in all likelihood, this is the prototype of the new 3 Series Li long wheelbase, the BMW developed for the Chinese market in the wake of success from the analogous variation of the outgoing model. All the extra space (11 cm on the current generezione) is dedicated to the rear passengers, as evidenced by the lengthening of the door decorated with a brand new chrome strip, so as to offer more legroom.
The importance of the Chinese market. The car, produced locally, confirms its intention to offer products tailored to the Asian market and the operation is justified by sales figures in constant growth. Along with the new range of engines it is also expected the arrival of plug-in hybrid version, especially important in China given the restrictions on the movement. Curiously, the prototype of the images does not adopt this technology, since it is devoid of the door for charging of batteries on the left front fender.
