    Reviews are fairly positive on the G20 saying that it is a better driver's car than previous generations.

    Yeah, I figured it wouldn't be sold here anymore. Gotta go where the market goes (my country's car market sucks).

    That is actually a good looking BMW Touring.

    Of the current-gen 3 Series I've seen two wagons on the road since release. It's so rare that it's a big deal when I do spot one. A real shame that's the last of them. Won't be long until wagons are extinct in the US.:nervous:

    Looks like the M340i is Xdrive only :(

    At least the 3 series is one of the few cars in BMW's line up that actually still looks good. Still do think the previous gen looks a little better though.

    It's funny how they will call it some fancy Gran Coupe but I just see a Liftback.

    "The all new BMW 4 Series some fancy Gran Coupe"... I don't think they will call it that, that'd be silly.

    Yeah.. do it... do it.. feed the cognitive ease!


    Personally, grille aside, I think you only have to look at the Concept 8 series, Concept X7 and Concept Z4 versus their production counterparts to get a clearer idea of what you're really looking at here. It's pretty good looking as a concept (though the grille we be divisive), but I think it's fair to say the elements that make it look good will probably be removed or heavily subdued for the production model.

    edit:

    In other news...

    B3 Touring looks pretty good...

    Dear BMW

    Please stop with these humongous grilles. They're ugly as :censored:.

    Regards,
    Everyone

    I'd love for this to be the straw that broke the camel's back, but people will still buy it because of what it is and less how it looks. You'd have to be quite headstrong in your own personal taste to find that attractive.

    What, and then spark torrents are endless complaints about BMW styling not being what it used to be...?

    I think maybe they're accentuating the fact that it's not an EV. Cars with no grilles? We're gonna have the biggest goshdarned grille this side of a semi-truck!

    The all electric i4 will still have trim on the front outlining the grille, but it will be solid, a bit like the concept...

    .. if you don't like big kidneys on a BMW, you're going to have a bad time, even in the EV era.

    “Sir, people are having mixed reactions to our larger grilles. Should we reduce them?”

    “No. Make them....




    As big as you can!”

    Welp. Looks like the new M3 (G80) will have the grill that the Concept 4 teased
