The iconic 3-Series enters its seventh generation.

For decades, the BMW 3-Series was the benchmark all other sport sedans were compared against. While hardcore enthusiasts feel BMW, and the 3-Series has lost a bit of its edge in recent generations, the model still offers a nearly perfect blend of performance and luxury, which the company will continue with the all-new 3-Series debuting next week during the Paris Motor Show.

Details about the 3-Series – known as the G20 to BMW fans – are scarce. However, we know it’ll ride on BMW’s modular CLAR platform, which debuted in the 7-Series back in 2016. BMW upgraded the suspension, steering, and brakes over the outgoing model, but we don’t know how this will influence the car’s driving characteristics.

BMW is working hard to make sure the 3-Series remains the sport sedan king to compete with vehicles like the Audi A4 and Infiniti Q50. We know of one confirmed powertrain so far – an inline-four engine. BMW says it will be the company’s most potent four-cylinder engine yet, meaning it will make more than 248 horsepower.

This isn’t the first 2019 BMW 3-Series model on the market. As we reported back in July, BMW is already selling the 2019 wagon and GT styles in their current form. That means the all-new sedan will sell alongside the previous-generation wagon and GT as 2019 vehicles. Updated versions of those styles will come later, possibly for 2020.
