BMW is still keeping a tad bit mum when it comes to the new version of their smaller sedan, but automotive enthusiasts are not going to let something like that stop the flow of information. Our latest rendering of the 2012 BMW 3-Series takes the elements revealed from the most recent spy shots to unveil the BMW 3-Series in it full and naked glory.

Ever since the 3-Series began production back in 1975, BMW has done very little to mess with its overall design. Each generation has brought out some tweaks here and there, but nothing too drastic. The BMW F30 3-Series will be no different. The sedan takes some of the same design cues from the new 5-Series, and possibly the new 7-Series. There have been numerous reports that the new 3-Series will be longer than the current version by around an inch and a half, but it will have considerably shorter overhangs.

As for the engine, the 2012 BMW 3-Series will feature BMW’s new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine with an output of 240-horsepower and at least one inline six option. The diesel lineup will consist of turbocharged four-cylinder and six-cylinder variants and a hybrid model will also come into play sometime later.

After the sedan makes it debut - more than likely at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show - BMW will then bring out convertible, coupe, M3, wagon, and Gran Turismo variants.

I don’t find it much more exciting for the BMW by conceptualizing a car and offering it in different sizes.

Impressive concept though it’s still looks so ordinary and simple. Still looking forward for another news of this BMW 3-Series.

Recently, the BMW has released the coupe 5-series and the convertible 4-series. And now, they are working on the 3 series? I wonder of they will join all these vehicles in the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Well, I was expecting that the vehicle would be four inch longer than its coupe version. The diesel version of the car has an impressive power output.

It is a good idea in making more upgrades on this one. As I follow reviews about BMWs. I notice that they are really fond on research and possible additional specs on their car. Great effort results for a great thing.

With the upgrade engine , I bet this car would have an impressive performance. The turbocharged engine of the vehicle is enough to make it blast in the race track.

Is that the official image of the rendered 3 series? It look so different from the original production version. For a sedan car the power output of the car was quite amazing. I can’t wait to see this car in the Frankfurt Motor Show.
