BMW has finally launched in India the 7th generation 3 Series. The all-new BMW 3 Series was long awaited by the Indian auto enthusiasts since its global launch in October last year.
Better late then never, the car has finally arrived.
Codenamed ‘G20’, the new 3 Series benefits from slightly increased dimensions and a new striking design language that sets it apart from its predecessor visually.
The exterior embodies the modern and dynamic character of the new BMW 3 Series sedan with precisely drawn lines and strikingly contoured surfaces.
The BMW kidney grille has been icreased in size and the headlights are dominant themes of the front end.
Longer wheelbase, short overhangs and the redesigned Hofmeister kink accentuate the dynamic profile when viewed from the side.
A wider and more powerful stance is instantly noticeable from the rear. A contemporary sporty look is created by the distinctive spoiler and slim three-dimensional L- shaped taillights with LED technology along with two large tailpipes.
Despite larger dimensions, the car is now lighter than before. A mix of materials in the car, such as aluminum in the bonnet, front side panels, front spring struts and engine sub-frame have led to a reduction of 55 kilograms.
The interior is designed to accentuate cabin spaciousness and the driver-focused cockpit. Extended shoulder and elbow room in the front and additional legroom and headroom in the rear contribute to a generous feeling of space.
Filling up the cabin with a sense of spaciousness is the large glass sunroof. Through loading system includes rear seat backrests that can be divided in a 40:20:40 ratio for greater flexibility.
The Sport Seats have been newly designed with electrical memory function to offer greater long-distance comfort for the driver and front passenger. Automatic air conditioning with three-zone control extends comfort. Optimised acoustic properties reduce noise levels and make the journey even more peaceful. Ambient Lighting with six dimmable designs is meant to create an atmosphere for every mood. Welcome Light Carpet, which is projected from the side sill, welcomes passengers in glamorous style.
BMW TwinPower Turbo technology enables the petrol and diesel engines to generate maximum power with exemplary efficiency and offer spontaneous responsiveness even at low engine speeds.
Using the Driving Experience Control switch, the driver is able to choose between different driving modes to suit the driving conditions (ECO PRO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+).
The all-new BMW 3 Series is equipped with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission. At any time, in any gear, the transmission has been tuned to collaborate smoothly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full power and efficiency. For even greater driving pleasure, it is available with steering wheel paddle shifters and cruise control with braking
