As things stand now, BMW doesn’t look quite as good a solution as the high-end Audi A3 Sportback, but maybe we’ll change our mind once the fully updated car is revealed. There is no word yet on whether BMW will implement any drastic changes to the cabin or the engines, although it may receive the latest iDrive infotainment system.
As before, we expect this grille to be very color sensitive, with black looking very different from chrome – both of which are affected by the paint color. The darker colors and black grille worked well on a pre-facelift car to make the grille look better integrated. New bumpers and new taillight graphics are also expected, but it’s hard to pin down the smallest details.
