2012 BMW 3 Series

BMW's upcoming 2012 3 Series sedan has been teased in a new promotional video this week. The clip follows the car's development team as they put it through hot weather testing in Death Valley, California. One of the new EfficientDynamics features will be an aerodynamic ‘air curtain’. A series of ducts and vents around the bodywork designed to direct air more cleanly around high-drag areas, such as the wheel-wells.

Ever-tightening emissions and fuel consumption regulations are expected to see the new 3 Series debut with a three-cylinder turbocharged engine, developing an estimated 110 to 125 kW and 200 to 300 Nm. The bonnet and belt-line are expected to sit higher than on the current model, offering improved pedestrian protection, as this rendering of the 2012 3 Series Touring demonstrates.
