6 Front View

Automobile - - Design -

1. grille The is new sim­pler one-piece and quicker to in­stall than two sep­a­rate units, and its pro­por­tions are su­perb, mak­ing it seem even wider than it is.

2. Four sharp sur­face­break lines on the hood and fender top, one as a ver­ti­cal lead­ing edge, in­crease vis­ual length and have zero neg­a­tive aero­dy­namic ef­fect.

3. de­tail The is “ice in­ter­est­ing scraper” and could well be­come one of the 3 Se­ries’ iden­tity marks if it does not show up on any of the other ba­sic model lines.

4. Con­cav­ity of the lower front cor­ners is bold, and its rear­ward bevel in plan view adds dy­namism to the whole front end.

PART OF THE im­pres­sion of width comes from the clas­si­cal four-head­lamp lay­out in which the lamps are muchwider than they are tall. The front-end graph­ics areex­cel­lent and co­he­sive.IN THIS VIEW, the new 3 Se­ries looks re­ally wide. But then itre­ally wide.
