2019 G20 3 Series Spied with better navigation screen integration

2019 3 Series g20 navigation

The G20 3 Series starts production at the end of 2018 as a 2019 model. We'll say goodbye to the F30 after 7 model years years of production and usher in the 7th generation 3 Series. The G20 will be base on the new CLAR platform that underpins the 5 and 7 and from my review of the G30 5 Series BMW is back on track to make sports sedans.

There should be a weight reduction overall plus an increase in standard equipment and probably more power as the B family of engines matures. As these photos show we'll also see a hybrid version based off BMW's iPerformance technology

One improvement that I'm sure will please everyone is a better integrated dash navigation screen. You can see through the window (don't mind the bird poop) how BMW has created a bezel that wraps the screen into the dash. This should alleviate the iPad stuck on the dash feeling that was so disliked on the F30.

Who's going to be upgrading their F30 to a G20 in early 2019?

Is there any detail about tech data, e.g. 0-60, mpg, HP/lb-ft, skid pad? How about standard equipment, e.g. Nav/driver assist tech, adaptive suspension standard?

Adaptive suspension is not standard even on the G30 so that would be very unlikely.

I want them to introduce comfort seats for the 3 (just for the shape of the seat, don't care about ventilation), but I know that is unlikely to happen.

By early 2019, I'll be at close to 100K miles, so I'll be in line for a new car then, assuming I'm still alive, able to drive, and employed.

I can't wait to see what the exterior looks like. Hopefully they add more standard equipment, I'm sure that's wishful thinking on my part.

I especially like the integration of that yellow panic button on top of the dash. Shouldn't it be red though?

Smart man. I should have kept my E92 and jumped this generation. The LCI didn't do enough to fix the short comings.


Hopefully the next gen. has actual glass that blocks the sun's heat like most other cars among a long list of problems that need immediate attention.

I explicitly sent this piece of feedback to BMW NA.

Did you find that the heat blocking in the F3x is worse than E9x? It definitely feels worse than my E46, but nowadays it feels like I complain about so many things that I sometimes don't know if I'm just imagining things.

What I told BMW was that heat blocking was so bad, on hot days AC struggles to keep up and there's too much burning sensation on skin even through clothes.

I also sent feedback on this to BMW NA. Their response sounded as if it's not the first time they heard about this.

The heat blocking is MUCH MUCH MUCH worse than the E92. I drove my E92 for 5 years and never gave it much thought. Car was always cool, never really thought about the sun. In the F30 I feel much warmer if the sun is hitting me. My passengers also commented on the same thing as compared to my E92 and their own vehicles. Even after driving for several hours you can't get the car cold. I mean cold where you touch the leather and the seats feel cold.. that kind of cool. I always feel like I am in a hot car with cold air blowing on me, not a truly cool comfortable interior.

I was just in SC visiting family for 9 days. I rode and drove their Acura's. Never felt the sun's heat even when the sun was directly hitting me. Their system actually can lower the fan speed and keep the car cool in direct sun when outside temp is in the 80's. Amazing concept!! The E92 could also easily do this. The fans on the F30 have to full out and you still feel warm. Not to mention the vent design produces more noise than the E92 with high fan speed. It is absolutely abysmal to say the least.

I am going to have my car tinted with clear ceramic tint because I simply can't drive this car like this for 2 more years until my lease ends. I am screwed on the windshield since I don't want legal issues with tinting it.

I am not sure if this is a windshield issue as well or just a side glass issue. I'm also not sure if this impacts only sedans (which use Fuyao glass) or all F3x's (the coupe's still use one of the European glass manufacturers).

I too do not like tints and have never had one. But I'm thinking of putting solargard before the summer kicks in, probably in the next few weeks.

I tinted my windows way back when I was in high school and never thought about doing it until now. Also, in Vermont you can't tint your side windows so I will try to get away with clear tint all around. If you tint only the backs to a dark tint, and leave the front side windows clear, the outside mirror self tinting function will get screwed up since it uses the same sensor in the rear view mirror. Keep that in mind.

I am truly trying to figure out of all new BMW models have this issue. I can't imagine this problem on a 5 series. I know the 7 has special IR blocking glass.

The windshield is also a problem for sure. I spent an hour last Summer driving directly into the sun with the climate control on max.

I asked this question of the the BMW Genius via email and was told there is no difference across models. But I have also gotten bad information from them in the past, so I have to take it with a grain of salt. The only way to know for sure would be to actually try one. Unfortunately, don't seem to ever give out anything other than F30 sedans as loaners.

It hit a sweltering 95 record breaking degrees here in the Boston area and my F30 was pretty uncomfortable even with 35% tints! This is the only make the has this issue. My wife's Honda Odyssey is cool within 10 minutes and stays cool. My old Acura TL was the same as was my TSX. I prefer not to tint windows but I had to with my F30. I feel the AC is underpowered and the windows have practically no IR rejection at all.

I think the AC is probably powerful enough. It's the windows. Does your 35% tint a IR rejecting tint?? As in ceramic or something similar. No matter how dark the tint is, if it doesn't reject IR it won't matter much at all. Some of the clear IR films have much better heat rejecting as compared to the darkest non IR films. I have been researching this a lot.

Also, the windshield is still an issue.

Yes. My tints do indeed have IR rejection. It's the ONLY reason I had the windows done as I've never been an uncomfortable in any other car I've owned. The tints made an immediate difference right after they were installed. But, yes, it's the front windshield that is the issue. I didn't apply any films to it. I notices the front glass is clearer on my F30 vs our Honda, both from the inside and the outside when parked next to each other so I'm guessing that's why the car still get so hot in certain situations.

Damn. You aren't giving a good feeling about spending $400 for IR tints in a few weeks for a car I will only have 2 more Summers. I was hoping the problem would be mostly resolved with tints.

I have absolutely no clue how people can drive this car where it is warm most of the year. How do they cope in Arizona or Florida? Perhaps they are more accustomed to the heat.

Seriously???? I have been meaning to check it out and see but I always seem to have something else to do. This, among lost driving dynamics, will push me away from this brand going forward. As crappy as my base suspension Xdrive drives I was planning to even check out the X3, or 5 series. They don't drive much worse.

They BETTER fix this in the G20. Hopefully someone at BMW will actually read this.

The redesigned TLX has potential (especially the next full redesign) as well as the S3 or S4.

The tint laws are a bit different there, and I think they allow even the windshield to be tinted.

Technically, you could spend another $200 and get a clear tint on your windshield as well. That's what I was planning to do, but then I heard certain cases where it obstructed visibility under certain lighting conditions. Those reports are probably due to quality of film and/or improper installation, but it is a risk that I would not want to take.

The list of alternatives is definitely long, so there are many to consider. However, the devil you know is sometimes better than the devil you don't. Those cars probably have their own set of issues.

Back when I was younger, when interviewing for a new job I would try to make sure they didn't have the problems I had encountered in any of my older jobs. When they didn't I'd accept the offer and join only to find out they had culture/operating issues in some other area. After several job changes, I realized it is not possible to shop for a job that doesn't have issues.

Turns out that is the same with everything in life. So one has to decide what set of issues one is willing to live with and make decisions based as much on intuition as on data.

I saw the A4's great reviews on C&D, but when I drove the car, I actually liked the BMW better and it has nothing to do with specs...it's just the way the engine/transmission/chassis feel when driving.

I have llumar air 80 on every window (except the pano roof) on my F31 and have never felt the need to turn the AC up beyond half even in 90-100F weather. Climate control set to 70 and go. Once things have cooled down I usually turn the fan speed down to the lowest or 2nd lowest at most.

Here in AZ you can do a lot with tint. I personally am frozen out of my car within 10 mins on 100+ days using Max A/C. My VIN says my car is a warm weather version, I don't know if that makes the A/C better, but I don't have a problem with my A/C it's freakin awesome compared to my previous VW's and Honda's!

Windshield as well? How is visibility? My dealer would certainly catch on and refuse to pass state inspection if they saw windshield was tinted.. and they would fine it. State inspection is right under rear view mirror and they scrap off the old one.

I thought about Air 80 but I have to drive several hours to find a place installing it. I was thinking CXP 80.

I think all North American cars are warm weather versions. Max AC does work and I am forced to use it a lot more in this car. My E92 I rarely had to use it. I am pretty sure the auto AC would work much better if it weren't fighting all extra heat from the glass.

The amount of tint I have probably helps too. I have tint on my windshield too. On 100+ days, Auto at 72 is usually good, after the initial Max for 10 mins.

Yes, windshield too. Didn't make sense to not do the largest window in the car. Visibility is just fine. You can notice some small distortion in the HUD, but you have to be actively looking for it in order to notice it.

No inspections in CA, and the visibility through it is so high that you wouldn't even know it's tinted (and the police here really wouldn't care since they can clearly see you).

+FaRKle!, The small distortion on the HUD is because you are sitting off direct center.

Interesting. I also have an Odyssey and can put it at 74 and never touch it. It was 92 here yesterday and the AC in the F30 was outmatched. I had it on 65 with the magic red/blue wheel at all blue and the auto intensity at full tilt. One very perplexing thing that the system does is blow nice and cold for a few minutes, then it will shift some of the air flow from the top vents to the bottom vents by your feet. Dumb, dumb, dumb. That cold air thrown down low is completely wasted as all the heat is at the top of the cabin and the cool air will descend anyway. Further, when the air flow is shifted down there is no corresponding increase in air flow intensity to compensate for the loss of cooling up top.

And yes, the observations about the windshield are accurate. My thighs were feeling the burn as the sun shone through the front. I ultimately had no choice but to switch to manual mode to keep the air flow going through the top vents. I'm shocked to hear similar issues with the new G30, but here are the deficiencies I see in the F30:

--Terrible glass
--Calibration of temperature selection is way off
--No sunload sensor
--Head-scratching ACC algorithm

There is a sunload sensor but it's in a terrible spot.

Next time that happens try leaving it in auto mode but force record to on versus Auto recirc. That normally helps quite a bit. The system uses fresh air too much and with crappy glass it's a recipe for sweat running down your arms. Sucks.

Are you saying to hit the recirculate button till "M" is lit? When I do that, then switch back to no LEDs on (fresh air?), I don't seem to get a noticeable difference in air flow. In all my other cars, when switching to recirculate, there is a noticeable increase in air flow (and noise).

There are 3 settings for this button.

1. Fresh air (no led lit)
2. Auto recirc
3. Recirc

Auto recirc. is automatically controlled and it also will go to recirc mode if it senses diesel type fumes outside. Handy feature.

The LED let by the A is auto mode, but LED lit on the other side (I forget which is which) is fixed recirc mode. This allows the car to get cooler and lowers the fan speed because it doesn't have to work so hard. It will override you after a few days or hours... not sure when but eventually it will decide you need fresh air and switch back to fresh. I drove for weeks before this happened though YMMV. Try it out. You will notice higher air flow and more noise in this car just as with any other car but not quite so obvious as some cars. I think BMW did a good job of minimizing the path to fresh air to avoid this problem.

The "M" position is the recirculate mode. In retesting last night, I've found that switching between "M" and "no LEDs" (fresh air), the airflow changes as expected some of the time but not all the time. I may have an intermittent control issue.

One improvement that I'm sure will please everyone is a better integrated dash navigation screen. You can see through the window (don't mind the bird poop) how BMW has created a bezel that wraps the screen into the dash. This should alleviate the iPad stuck on the dash feeling that was so disliked on the F30.

2019 3 Series g20 navigation

Who's going to be upgrading their F30 to a G20 in early 2019?
Any info on a wagon version of the G20?
I would think that, if the past is any indication, it would follow in the next model year.

The rumors are that the F31 will be the last 3 Series wagon offered in the US. So don't expect any G21 wagon coming to the US.

Me too. The F30 just doesn't do it for me. The G20 had better step up.
