BMW 3-Series Overview

Some cars are just made to makes other feel envy. These cars are not just high performers but also real jewels in terms of looks. They are the quintessential style statements everyone hopes of making. And the automakers that make such cars are not just engineers but at core, artists. Because they design not cars but living models of automobile excellence.BMW is one such automaker and practically every car from their stable is a master of its own race.
BMW 3-Series Overview
However it’s the BMW 3 Series that really caught on as a show stealer with its stellar headlights and sleek design. And when such a beauty is offered on the Indian front, that too with two fuel options, we better be thanking the gods. BMW 3 Series is a sedan that is way beyond any ordinary sedan. With looks which make even the limousines tremble and the approachable design that makes it an amiable switch from any other regular sedan, BMW has the perfect mix or ferocity and gentleness. The car is the third in line of the series saga that BMW has starting from 1 Series extending till 7 Series. So being in the middle of the clan, 3 Series gets best of both worlds, affordability of 1 Series and efficiency of 7 Series. In India two key variants are offered, the BMW 328i and BMW 320d each catering to petrol and diesel audience respectively.

BMW 3-Series Exterior

The side profile looks like a grand Sedan without much embellishments to pollute its sanctity. The roof window gives a wonderful ambience to the interiors of the vehicle. The rear design looks equally pleasing and aesthetically accurate.

BMW 3-Series Interior

When BMW makes a car interiors are one of the factors one likes to comment on because it is too hard to find any flaw in them, the vehicle offers exceptional visual ambience in the interiors thanks to the roof window.

BMW 3-Series Engine & Transmission

With two engine options BMW 3 Series Sedan caters to a wider range of customers. Both the engine follow similar BMW TwinPower Turbo engine design principle. These also come under the signature BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy. BMW 3 Series 328i gets the 2.0 litre four cylinder petrol engine while the diesel variant BMW 3 Series 320d is fit with a 2.0 litre four cylinder diesel engine. As mentioned, at core both these engines seem similar in what they offer except for the fuel compatibility.

The petrol engine on the other hand generates a whipping 245 bhp maximum output and a torque of 350 Nm at 1250 rpm to 4800 rpm.

BMW 3-Series Mileage

Diesel trumps petrol any day in terms of fuel economy though the increasing diesel prices are making the gap seam obsolete day by day.

The diesel variant BMW 3 Series 320d on the other hand offers a city mileage of 11.2 kmpl and a highway mileage of 13.2 kmpl.

BMW 3-Series Braking and Safety

Brake energy regeneration system allows the vehicle to convert the kinetic energy into electric energy so that it can be used further to ease the pressure on the engine and fuel as a whole. Other than these, the vehicle also packs airbags in the front and rear for the passengers. Interestingly, the airbags are positioned on the seats instead of the body so every time they are deployed, no matter the passengers’ position, they effectively protect the passengers in the right way.

BMW 3-Series Performance and Handling

BMW 3 Series is blessed with an intelligent lightweight construction that offers superior handling and impressive aerodynamics in one go. With maximum handling, agility and accuracy as its core goal, the BMW 3 Series take advantage of the lightweight chassis which perfectly works in sync with the fine tuned axle kinematics.

What do we think about BMW 3-Series?

BMW 3 Series Sedan is a perfect sedan for any executive. While Audi makes compelling cars too, there is a sense of monotone in the designs of Audi that make almost every car resemble one another at a larger level. BMW too follows same tradition but it manages to find its niche in each and every car making all of them unique. So go for it if it suits your pockets because there are quite a few shades it is offered in that you might be interested in.

BMW 3-Series Competitors

BMW 3 Series competes with Audi A4, Audi A6,Mercedes Benz C Class, and at a larger range of cars, it also competes with Skoda Superb. However the exclusive design aesthetics of the vehicle make BMW a tough car to ignore.
