The 6th generation of BMW’s most popular model will premiere this Friday (14th October) and you can watch it live by tuning into the broadcast on the brand’s Facebook page.

The live broadcast kicks off at 3PM (BST) from the BMW plant in Munich, which you can join here.

New BMW 3 Series live premiere

From the spy shots we brought you back in August, the F30 3 Series looks to be a conservative design, loosely based on the current 5 Series.

We’re expecting the usual range of four-cylinder and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with an emphasis on smaller-capacity turbocharged powerplants boosted by the usual EfficientDynamics technologies including the new ECO PRO fuel saving mode, Auto Start-Stop function and a full gamut of BMW’s latest intelligent energy management systems.

We understand BMW will adopt a similar distinction between specifications including Urban, Sport and SE.

To mark the occasion, BMW have produced a series of short videos for each generation which you can see below.
