The Future Design of BMW: Here’s What’s Coming Next
You know the brand BMW as one of the finest luxury lines of cars in existence. The Ultimate Driving Machine is its trademark. Do you know what they are doing next? The BMW Group is consistently changing daily to stay one step ahead. They are currently developing a vision of the future called “The Next 100 Years.” The main focus is on how mobility will be a large part of our daily lives. Take a look at some of the new models coming out of the BMW lineup soon. Their features will astound you.
2018 BMW X2
The X2 will have a style all its own front to rear, though it is essentially a better reboot of the BMW X1 with a sportier appearance. The kidney grille is expected to be new and unique, and there is some talk that a new convertible model may be in the works, too. The word is all X2s will have four-wheel driving capability.
2019 BMW 3 Series
Step into the future with the next generation of the compact sports sedan. The 2019 BMW 3 models will have a longitudinal-engine base. It is being described as a cluster architecture or CLAR. The 2019 versions will weigh about 150 pounds less than the 2018 models. The new BMW 3 models have been tested in snowy weather in Northern Europe. The headlights are smaller and the kidney grille is larger.
2019 BMW 6 Series
The new 6 Series is likely to be released in 2018. It is being designed with the cluster architecture platform also. The models will feature optional air suspension and rear-wheel steering. Putting out 550 horsepower, the 6 Series will be showing off a renewed roofline. About 200 kilograms will be shaved off of these 2019s. The xDrive four-wheel drive will still be available.
2019 BMW X7
It is finally happening: BMW is getting into the full-size luxury SUV game with the release of an X7. There has been discussion about its existence for over ten years. The demand is now being met and it will surpass other full-size luxury SUVs on the market. The X7 has a strong design particularly along the front of the car. It will also be based on the cluster architecture platform with carbon fiber reinforced plastic components — this keeps the weight of the vehicle down.
The latest X7 will have a plug-in hybrid powertrain offering along with the V-8 and inline-6 engine options. A V-12 could possibly be available. The interior will include a cockpit set-up and three rows of seats like the 2016 7 Series has. You will also find a generous infotainment system. The BMW plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, will produce this latest X7.
The future of BMW will see drivers communicating with their vehicles all of the time. The concept is called “the Companion.” The car will elevate the driver’s experience and mold him into the best driver imaginable. The Companion reacts to the driver’s personal needs with informed, intelligent aid. A connection between the user and the world around him allows the BMW Companion to deliver options that solve his mobility needs in and out of the automobile.
