A teaser image of the new generation BMW 3 Series has surfaced online. Still covered under a sheet but showing off its new front end and standard LED lighting, this should be the 2019 G20 3 Series seen before its official Paris debut.

  the car in the photo is likely an M340i M Performance version. The site bases its estimate on the kidney grille’s outer edges, which would mark it as a M Performance car. In any case, the kidneys are similarly prominent as on other recently introduced BMW vehicles, giving them a different look from the outgoing F30 generation car; the headlights are also less separated from the kidneys as on the F30.

The photographed car is also said to have the new 3.0-liter, turbocharged B58 straight six, which produces some 360 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque. While an eight-speed automatic is a given, the availability of a manual gearbox is unknown. The M340i will have BMW’s limited-slip M Sport Differential as standard, while it’s an option on cheaper trims; BMW’s Laserlight headlights are also an option. We also see lit doorhandles in the image.
