All hail what will probably be the most important new car of 2012, the latest BMW 3-Series and we are just weeks into the new year.
So why is it so important you might ask? Well popularity with the fleet and family sector is key and judging from the performance of the old car, BMW will have another winner.
Munich has perhaps played it safe with the sixth-generation junior executive's styling, but the fact that the new car is longer, wider yet 50kg lighter is impressive.
Other 3-Series highlights include a vast choice of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines.
UK first drives are next month, but see more of the new BMW in the video below:
