BMW’s all-new 3 Series goes on sale in February 2012. It promises to be bigger and better than ever, but it will face some increasingly tough competition.
Its chief rival will be the Audi A4, and an updated version of this will go on sale at around the same time as the 3 Series. It will come with cleaner, more powerful engines and cosmetic changes similar to those made to the updated A5 range.
