While we ‘d have liked to see a big advance stylistically– there might yet be one concerning color or materials– the favorable ergonomics and elegant appearance of the current model as well as its more recent brethren is no bad thing. One can expect that most, if not all, of BMW’s contemporary tech and convenience features provided on the 5 will make their way to the 3, such as gesture control, along with developed versions of tech and luxury features the 3-series currently provides.
