The BMW 3 Series diesel has always had a reputation for being fun to drive. But at Rs 47.50 lakh (ex-showroom), the 320D, which was earlier offered in a sole Luxury line trim, had a high buy in point. Now, BMW has introduced the diesel powertrain in the entry-level Sport trim which is Rs 5.4 lakh more affordable than the Luxury line trim. Here’s where it sits in the 3 Series lineup:

Coming back to the 320D Sport, we already mentioned it’s Rs 5.4 lakh more affordable than the Luxury Line variant. While it sounds like a steal, the 320D Sport misses out on some kit from the top-spec variant such as Apple CarPlay, a larger 10.25-inch i-Drive infotainment system, a digital instrument display, ambient lighting, and park assist.

That said, the 320D Sport comes with a fair amount of features such as a smaller 8.8-inch i-Drive infotainment system, three-zone climate control, cruise control, launch control, drive modes and powered front seats. On the safety front, it features six airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control and a tyre pressure monitor.

The 320D Sport continues to utilise BMW’s 2.0-litre diesel engine that develops a healthy 190PS of power and 400Nm of torque. In true BMW fashion, it spins the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Coupled with Launch Control, the 320D is capable of doing naught to 100kmph in 6.8 seconds. Mighty quick indeed!

The 320D Sport does seem like an incredible package as it comes with all the equipment one would ever need. Sure, Apple CarPlay would have completed the package, but it still offers good value for money. And sealing the deal is the fact that the 3 Series is still one of the most fun to drive cars in its segment. The 3 Series locks horns with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class
