BMW 3 Series launched in India

BMW India has launched the new BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine Iconic Edition in the country. It is available in both petrol and diesel variants.

The Iconic Edition is the long-wheelbase version of the BMW 3 Series, said a press release by the German carmaker. It has been launched in India considering the clientele’s preference for long sedans.

Mr. Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India, said, “The 3 Series Gran Limousine has set a new standard in luxury with its elongated design, enhanced space, luxurious comfort and dynamic performance. We are delighted to present the new BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine Iconic Edition with an enhanced, unique and captivating character.”

The new edition takes on the position of the longest, most spacious and comfortable car in its segment and sets a new benchmark in the class. It offers sportiness, comfort and innovations, according to the release.

Due to the extended wheelbase, there is more room to unwind, more legroom for rear passengers and a pleasant seating experience even on long journeys. The powerful engine ensures thrilling performance and acceleration.

Encompassing an exterior length of 4,819 millimeters and a 2,961-millimetre wheelbase, the exterior dimensions of the new edition outstrip those of any other car in its class.

Creating a striking front look is the large BMW iconic glow kidney grille with single surround for the two elements and LED headlights with extended features. The interior is designed to accentuate grand cabin spaciousness with ample legroom in the rear compartment.

The petrol and diesel engines meld maximum power with exemplary efficiency and offer spontaneous responsiveness even at low engine speeds, said the release.

The eight-speed steptronic sport automatic transmission performs smooth, almost imperceptible gearshifts. At any time, in any gear, the transmission collaborates perfectly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full power and efficiency.

Modern cockpit includes 3D Navigation, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the steering wheel and a 10.25 inch control display. The safety features include six airbags, Attentiveness Assistance, Dynamic Stability Control and electric parking brake with auto hold.
