Some angles look like the Focus sedan....

Another hideous new bmw...

The interior is nice, but I mean come on. What the hell are they thinking? Between this and the 4 series grille, I might honestly just be done with BMW. After 20 years, I hate to say it, but I don't know what else to do.

Horrible, absolutely, horrible. And why are they still using the straight line on the hood. So cheap. (Also hated it on the 3 series in the past).

Looks like someone began crushing the G20 from the front and rear then stopped half way.

You know, when I had a M235i, I wrote on a survey that they should make a sedan version. I had no idea at the time they would make a frumpy FWD corolla. I feel like this my fault, my bad everyone.

The side looks really generic. I don't know why but this seems like it'd be the next gen TSX instead of a BMW.

At least it didn't the grills from the G80!

(My expectations have come down significantly recently on how badly they can screw up designing a good looking car!)

Practically every Bmw has an M badge now. I remember when the M badge was special. Smh.

I'm in the minority here. I don't think it looks bad at all. It's a 2-series...

It doesn't look bad (if it weren't a BMW), but it has FWD written all over it especially with the tight proportions and short hood. Also, does anyone else think from the side it looks like a mini VW Arteon and a bit of like an upscale Civic? I can't imagine justifying what is likely going to be a $40k-50+ price, although I'm sure like the 320i (which I guess this is essentially taking place of) it will sell/lease well to the masses who want a BMW badge on the front of their car.

Oh dear.

I'm a huge BMW fanboy but the latest designs are not very good. Looks a very credible leak to me as the front appears very F40 1 series.

Lights look a little off and I wonder about the rectangular exhaust on the 35i as I'm sure the 135i has round twin pipes.

Anyway nice option to have and BMW does need to compete with that little CLA or whatever it is. I see a lot of them on the UK roads, market that cannot be ignored but not for me.

You must be blind to the sales of the A3 and CLA. BMW is growing, not polluting.

More sales is ultimately better for the models you like.

Try to expand your thinking....

I have 2020 m550 and thought I would not love the digital cockpit but once I got the car, I love it. It is really well done. I only wish there was option to customize it more or at least to have more of the preset view options. I bet these will come in m3/4 and future models...

Except they're still further isolating the models we like.
