Design & Exterior
The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine is 110mm longer when compared to its counterpart that generates more space for the rear occupants. Four color schemes are available on the recently launched luxury sedan, it includes – Carbon Black, Mineral White, Melbourne Red and Cashmere Silver. Further, the M Sport variant comes equipped with 18-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels.
The feature list of the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine remains very similar to what the German carmaker offers on the regular 3 Series. However, with a best in class back seat space, the all-new luxury sedan comes with a panoramic sunroof, 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, LED headlights with DRLs, 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system, etc. among others. Other features such as gesture control, wireless Apple CarPlay and heads-up display are also available on certain variants.
The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine is available with both – petrol as well as diesel powertrain. For the 330Li, there is a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that churns out a massive 258HP and 400Nm of torque. Coming to the 330d, it is obviously the diesel variant that is available with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel unit. This motor produces 190HP and a peak torque of 400Nm. Both the engines are only available with a 9-speed converter.
Performance-wise, the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine can do a 0-100kmph sprint in just 6.2 seconds. This figure is claimed by BMW itself and is only for the petrol variant.
As the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine does not have any direct rival here, it will continue to compete against the likes of the Audi A4, Volvo S60, Jaguar XE and Mercedes Benz C-Class. However, priced at a premium the all-new luxury sedan still requires sometime to establish itself. Further, we expect BMW to expand its portfolio for the Indian market as well.
