BMW has brought the latest generation of the successful 3 Series to India starting at a price of Rs 41.40 lakh.
Codenamed G20, the new 3 Series retains the basic DNA of the previous generation, but with new modern changes that increase practicality and comfort.
On the outside, a larger BMW-signature kidney grille dominates the front along with the new L-shaped LED daytime running lights that replace the traditional round BMW headlights. At the back, the taillamps are a lot sleeker now with their new elegant design. The interior cabin is generous and gets features like 12.3-inch digital instrument display, 10.25-inch control display, wireless charging, ambient lighting with six options and a glass sunroof. The infotainment system comes with the latest version of BMW’s iDrive system.
The new 3 Series is powered by a 2.0-litre, turbocharged petrol and diesel engines controlled by an 8-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox. The 320d diesel variant churns out 190hp and 400Nm of torque while the 330i petrol produces 258hp and 400Nm of torque. The diesel variant is offered in the 320d Sport and 320d Luxury Line version. The petrol is only offered in the 330i M Sport version.
The BMW 3 Series will be locally manufactured at their Chennai plant and bookings are now open all over India.
