BMW 3 Series Sedan : Chassis

Chassis.

Supreme driving comfort while maintaining maximum handling, agility and accuracy. These requirements may seem to be almost mutually exclusive. And yet the chassis of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan solves the contradiction with ease.

A substantial contribution to this comes from the sophisticated chassis technology with double-joint tension-strut front axle and five-arm rear axle, which provide perfect support for the successful concept with longitudinally mounted engine, rear-wheel drive, balance axle load distribution and body with high torsional strength.

BMW particularly relies on lightweight chassis components, sophisticated and perfectly tuned axle kinematics together with a precise steering system, which – thanks to the rear-wheel drive – remains unaffected by drive factors. State-of-the-art control systems support the dynamic driving potential of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan.
With a wheelbase of 2,810 millimetres, a track width of 1,543 millimetres at the front and 1,583 millimetres at the rear, the new BMW 3 Series Sedan has grown in terms of its dimensions. Combining the weight-optimised drive train and the lightweight construction concept of the body results in a perfect 50:50 axle load distribution. This ensures maximum driving dynamics and stability.
As if that were not enough: the dynamic chassis characteristics of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan can be increased even further with the optionally available Adaptive M suspension and by selecting Sports mode, which is supplied as standard.
