    More information is trickling out on the sixth generation M3. Next year, BMW will introduce the all-new 3-series Sedan, code name G20, followed in 2019 by the Touring (G21) and in 2020 by the 4-series Coupe and Convertible (G22/23).

    The next generation M3 (G80) due in 2021, will remain faithful to the twin-turbo 3.0-litre found in the current car, but its power output is said to equal that of the limited-edition M4 GTS, which musters 493hp and 442ft lbs torque.

    The new M3 is also said to be adding optional on-demand all-wheel drive, its output boosted by a 48-volt mild hybrid system, electrically spooled turbos and the GTS’s water-injection system.

    In line with the new M5, the smaller M3 model will abandon the current seven-speed dual-clutch transmission in favour of an eight-speed auto offering a choice of shift speed and shift patterns.
