The sixth generation 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan has officially debuted. This sports car offers all of the performance that drivers expect a BMW to have, yet sets high standards for comfort, safety, and efficiency as well. The 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan will arrive in showrooms in February 2012, offering drivers much more than solid performance.
Comfort is one key feature that drivers want, and the 2012 BMW 3 Series offers just that. A full-color Head-Up display conveniently illuminates standard information directly on the windshield in front of the driver, eliminating the need to look down at the dashboard. With the BMW ConnectedDrive, passengers and drivers can enjoy the accessibility of their mobile devices and music library through Bluetooth. Internet-based services such as the weather and news can be accessed as well on the Control Display.
The BMW 3 Series also offers safety technologies. The available Lane Departure Warning System on the BMW 3 Series is made of cameras that track the lane markings around the car. It activates at speeds above 43 mph and warns drivers when the vehicle unintentionally strays out of the lane by vibrating the steering wheel. BMW ConnectedDrive uses a camera on the rear-view mirror to scan the road for possible collisions. If it detects the driver is drawing too close to another vehicle, it will send out a verbal warning.
With BMW EfficientDynamics technology such as the Auto Start-Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, and need-based operation components, the 2012 BMW 3 Series offers drivers a vehicle that won’t break their wallet. An ECO PRO mode on the 2012 3 Series also improves the fuel efficiency through the way the car is driven in this mode. Including all three trims, the 3 Series can achieve between 26 and 28 mpg on the highway.
In addition to offering drivers solid performance, the 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan offers tech-savvy drivers a comfortable, fuel efficient ride.
