2012 BMW 3-Series

Looks like BMW finally announced the new 2012 335i. It claims to be bigger, restyled, lighter, and more fuel efficient. I believe they even released a 4 cylinder turbo, which is kind of nuts.

Here are the engine specs:

2.0-liter Four: 245 hp, peak torque of 258 lb-ft from 1,250 rpm, 0-62 mph in
5.9 seconds (328i).

3.0-liter Six: 306 hp, peak torque of 295 lb-ft at 1,200 rpm. 0-62 mph in
5.5 seconds (335i).

If you really think about it, the 2.0-liter four turbo really offers superb value. BMW has been known to sand bag on some of their 0-60 numbers. I bet on a cold day, you could see some faster numbers. Read more about it here.

Anyway, what do you think of the new design and direction? .
