BMW will finally launch the next generation 3 Series in India on August 21. The seventh gen (G20) model was unveiled last year at the Paris Motor Show and is based on the new CLAR architecture, which also underpins the new 5 and 7 Series. It will be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol and a 3.0-litre diesel mill, which will be paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Expected to be slightly more expensive than the outgoing model, it will continue to take on its main rivals like the Mercedes-Benz C-class and the Audi A4 in India.

I live to drive and for me it provides the ultimate driving experience. It is a personal indulgence and whether for short commutes (well not exactly in NCR where my office is 30 kms away) and long drives, it's a pleasure to drive the car. What has amazed me is its consistent city mileage in excess of 12 kms/liter and highway mileages exceeding 18. Maintenance is expensive. A snipped wing mirror set me back by 35k; routine service as prompted by the car is hardly less than 15 to 20k. Fortunately there is a growing tribe of luxury car third party service centres that do an equally good job at one third the official ones, at least there are quite a few in Delhi/NCR. Overall, if you have one driving indulgence and stretch your finances - go for the BMW.
Extremely responsive drive , very comfortable front seat drive , actually a 4 seater due to hump at the back ,front seating is way much comfortable than back seating, fast or economical depending on driver's choice . Air sensing climate control on individual seats and auto control of fog etc .is most relevant feature ...
Exceptionally good sedan and good on fuel,the problem is the engine starts smoking at some point and its costly to repair.
i am owning a 2012 model.. i use it for daily office route and also like a family car on weekends
👍 Nice good Niterror Smooth so Happy
Barring the M3/M4 this is the closest you can get to a true-blue driver's car in the 3 Series lineup. How is it?
The famed Bavarian GT makes a comeback, this time with a much more iconic badge on the rump, the 330i. Does it deliver the goods?
Does a new petrol engine make the 3-Series more desirable?
