Reduces body movement perceptibly smoothing out vibrations caused by bumpy road surfaces and dynamic cornering. The system adds extra hydraulic damping at the front axle and a compression limiting system at the rear. It is continuously variable and adjusts the damper firmness progressively according to the changing spring travel. This prevents excessive body dive when driving over large bumps and so avoids uncomfortable, nervous damping response.

ADAPTIVE mode is now available and adjusts car's responses to the driving style and, depending on the equipment specified, to the route profile. The control system responds to accelerator and steering inputs and the position of the selector lever to make the powertrain and suspension characteristics sportier or more comfort-oriented. The map data supplied by the optional Navigation system Professional is also used to prepare the car for an upcoming junction or bend.

It is familiar with the vehicle’s functions and is able to operate them as required. Saying “Hey BMW, I’m cold” will prompt the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant to adjust the temperature inside the car accordingly.
Intelligent learning: the assistant learns more about the driver with every command given, every question asked and every setting selected
Can explain how car functions work (e.g. "How does the High Beam Assistant work?"), provide current status information (e.g. "Is the oil level okay?") and help answer questions (e.g. "What warning messages do I have?").
Knows the driver’s favorite settings, and can even activate a combination of them to enhance well-being. For instance, “Hey BMW, I feel tired” triggers a vitality program that adjusts the lighting mood, music and temperature, among other things, in order to make the driver feel more awake.

The side profile is unmistakably bimmer and the front as well. But the rear looks like a mix of lexus and audi.

I think it looks great and it's lighter than the previous generation which is awesome. I think it's a step in the right direction. Bravo

RE: New 3 Series (G20) Goes Official
I'm undecided. The side design is good, rear looks ok but the front with those cutouts in the lights...not a fan. Feels like they took more than a few pages from the current Lexus design playbook.

And then there's the interior...one word comes to mind and it's a word I used to associate with Audi interiors...antiseptic. IDrive 7 looks interesting and the pulsating lights in the door handles are functional but overall the the design is wholly unremarkable.

Baby 5er indeed...but personally I think it's a mixes bag. The new A4 is more edgy and the c-class much more posh. Not sure where the 3 slots in.

RE: New 3 Series (G20) Goes Official
I think this car looks absolutely stunning from all angles and although I can see the resemblance to Lexus in the rear,I feel that Lexus should have waited a while and copied BMW instead,because the rear of this G20 looks tops Tiptoe

I saw a couple of people on various different platforms actually complain about this G20 being too much of a baby G30,which is an invalid concern IMO.The 5 series is a great car and has always been the better built and better specced car between the two,so why would BMW miss out on the opportunity to spoil the 3 series buyer with better materials,build quality and a better standard spec for a change?

It looks like a barge - I wonder if this size means they'll introduce something like a 1-series sedan (I believe this exists in china already).
