BMW reveals new 3-series for 2012

We have to admit that we cringed a bit when we first saw this car in profile, but once you get a close up look at it (peep the gallery above), this car isn’t that bad looking. We still prefer the balanced, well tailored suit of the current 5 series — however the new 3 is leaner in back (we see a little bit of E24 in the thinner Hofmeister kink), a bit more droopy aggressive up front, and best of all, this isn’t a straight up 7-series clone. You can see ‘tear duct’ cues from BMW’s new i-series in the headlamp treatment (by the way, a 3-series hybrid is part of the new mix) and if this means a new M3 is around the corner then welcome, new 3-series. Please stay a while. We’re sure you’ll sell well among the young executive set.
