The new 3 looks a little different but not all that much really. The nose looked a bit longer. They said the trunk gained like 12% more space, but it looked smaller to the eye on TV. This could be due to the lense on the camera however. They said they were going to set the price in 48 hours, but said that it would be close to the same price, but a little higher. It is longer and a little wider than the current model. More leg room front and rear. I didn't like the front end as well as the current model. Looks a little flat, but nice none the less. The interior looked very much the same, but I don't know what they could do to improve it.
The hood has a little 5 series look. The headlights look a little more simple than the current model IMHO.
They stated that it is a more ridged frame and has more safty features. The car looks nice, but it isn't all that big of a difference from the current model. It is hard to make a car much better and I think they know it.
I will be interested in seeing where it prices at.
