Take a look at the new BMW 320i M Sport Saloon. Codenamed G20, the 3 Series saloon was unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
One of the most popular compact executive cars ever produced, the BMW 3 Series has been around since 1975, and it is now into its eighth generation.
Based on BMW’s Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform, it has a double-wishbone (front) and multi-link (rear) suspension as well as a flat and covered underbody, which results in a drag coefficient of between 0.26 and 0.23.
Compared to its predecessor, the new BMW 320i M Sport Saloon is 55 kg lighter, 85 mm longer, and 16 mm wider. Weight distribution is 50:50, and its body is stiffer by 50%.
Among its many standard features are 18” Bicolour Orbit Grey Double-spoke style 790 M light-alloy wheels, BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line components, electric glass roof with sliding and tilting functions, and LED headlights and fog lights.
