At 39.9 lakhs, the 3GT goes up against both - executive sedans and crossovers alike.  The 3GT Sport Line will be available with a 2 litre diesel engine producing 184BHP and 380Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and put down to the road via the rear wheels. The 3GT Sport Line will be available in three metallic finishes and  one non metallic shade with only two interior options.

Overview

One of the well endowed and luxurious car models present in the current Indian market is BMW 3 Series . It is already available in a few variants, but now the company has introduced their Gran Turismo Sport Line in its model lineup. It is assembled locally at the firm's manufacturing unit, which is based near Chennai. What differentiates this latest trim from the existing ones is its spectacular exterior and interior design elements. On the outside, its kidney shaped front radiator grille has slats and an air breather garnished with high gloss Black finish are the main highlights. Its side profile features Matte Black finished side window frames, whereas the elegant set of alloy wheels adds to its sportiness. Internally too, it includes several attractive design elements that can leave anyone mesmerized. The name, BMW Sport embossed on its aluminum entry sills looks pretty good, while the fine-wood interior trim accompanied with pearl chrome accents further gives it a rich appeal. A smooth dashboard in the cockpit, comes integrated with a few advanced and stylish equipments. The steering wheel gets a fine leather wrap, while the center console portray a vigorous look. Besides all these, its well cushioned seats are covered with premium leather and they also include red contrast stitching, which just adds to its style quotient. Other interesting aspects in this model is a proficient air conditioning unit that assures instant cooling of the cabin and an advanced music system, which supports Bluetooth connectivity and other input options. Along with these, some storage and utility based features are also offered for added convenience of its occupants.

The manufacturer has offered the BMW Driving Experience Control switch in its new variant. Through this, the driver can opt for different modes like Comfort, ECO PRO, Sport and Sport+ based on the driving conditions. Every model from this brand comes loaded with various security aspects and this one is no exception. Some of these vital features include engine immobilizer system, ISOFIX child seat mounting, pyrotechnic belt tensioners to its front seat belts, and anti lock braking system as well. The dynamic stability control is another aspect that aids in keeping the vehicle steady in any driving condition. In terms of engine specifications, all its trims are incorporated with a 2.0-litre, twin turbo diesel power plant. With a displacement capacity of 1995cc, it produces maximum power of 184bhp along with 380Nm torque output. The pickup is quite amazing, whereas its fuel economy is also decent. Altogether, this model includes all top class features and impressive design elements, which can lure its buyers at the first glance itself.

Exterior

Exteriors

The robust body structure and outstanding external appearance is what makes it a favorite choice of numerous car enthusiasts. Right from the radiator grille at front to the glowing tail lamps in its rear, each and every aspect makes it look quite distinctive from others. In particular, its newly added GT Sport Line trim features kidney shaped grille with nine slats in high gloss black color. This is further emphasized by the thick chrome surround and company's emblem, which is embossed at the tip of its bonnet. The dynamic shape of its headlights is another remarkable thing to notice in its frontage. The bi-xenon headlights equipped to it, gives out a radiant light path, whereas the LED daytime running lights further enhances its style. An air intake section is fitted between a pair of fog lamps, which cools the engine in no time. Apart from these, a wide screen including a couple of rain sensing wipers, provides a clear and better view to the driver. Moving to its sides, the high gloss B-pillars as well as window surrounds in Matte Black finish provides a stunning appeal. The foldable external mirrors have heating and automatic anti dazzle functions. They are further integrated with LED side turn blinkers as well. Then, it includes door handles painted in body color and some expressive lines that stretch along with its length. The most captivating aspect in its side profile is definitely its stylish set of alloy wheels that have multiple spokes. Besides these, its latest trim includes an air breather on the front wheel arches that aids in decreasing the level of wind turbulence around its front wheels. The noticeable aspects in its rear end includes a couple of large and luminous tail light clusters equipped with turn indicators and has a wide windshield with defogger. The active spoiler on its boot lid not just gives a sporty look, but also helps in its driving dynamics. Other aspects such as a pair of reflectors on its bumper, and chrome treated exhaust pipes gives this vehicle a stunning look.

Exterior Measurements:

The overall length of this model series is 4624mm, whereas its width comes to about 1811mm, which goes up to 2031mm if outside mirrors are included. It measures 1429mm in terms of height and is designed with a wheelbase of 2810mm. Besides these, it comes with a minimum ground clearance of 157mm. On the other hand, its newly added variant is built with a total length, height and width of 4824mm, 1508mm and 2047mm with door mirrors included. Its wheelbase measures about 2920mm and has 165mm ground clearance.

Interior

Interiors

Ed's Take: The interiors of the 3-Series have seen a sea of changes; functionality remains similar but almost every bit has been revised or replaced. The 3-Series now gets satellite navigation also. There is a bigger 3 Series also available, which is the 3 Series GT.  The space at the rear and the boot of the 3 GT is just phenomenal.

Inside the cabin, everything looks so fascinating right from its two tone color scheme to well cushioned seats. And the presence of several advanced features such as the ConnectedDrive system, AC unit and a few others gives a contemporary feel. The door sills are easily noticeable while entering the cabin, and these include the lettering 'BMW Sport' in this latest variant. This new addition also features fine wood trim with pearl chrome accents, while its leather seat covers have red contrast stitching on it. Other aspects in all its trims include a well designed dashboard that is equipped with air vents, glove box compartment as well as an illuminated instrument cluster. This panel comes with a fuel gauge, speedometer, rev counter and a few other functions. It is integrated with a sporty steering wheel that is further wrapped with fine quality leather. Both the front seats are electrically adjustable, whereas the driver's seat additional gets memory function. The attractive glass sunroof is another interesting aspect in this vehicle, which lets in air and warm sun light. The rear seat has center armrest, which comes along with two cup holders. Apart from these, the cabin also includes assist grips, pockets in front and rear door trims, smokers package, floor mats in velour, lights package with ambient lighting and a few other aspects.

Interior Comfort:

Comfort is best ensured in this vehicle, which is packed with a number of innovative aspects. Starting with its multi-functional steering system, it includes various switches that adds to the convenience of driver. A dual zone automatic air conditioning unit is installed through which, the temperature inside can be controlled. It is offered with air vents, which spreads cool air all over and creates pleasant ambiance. Roller sun blinds are present for rear and side windows, whereas its outside mirrors have heating and memory function. The advanced ConnectedDrive is one of its key highlights that has several interesting apps. A high resolution instrument display is also available with extended contents, meanwhile, its inside mirrors have automatic anti dazzle function. All its windows are power operated, and vanity mirrors are provided along with sunvisors. For the best in-car entertainment, it has an infotainment system that allows its passengers to enjoy their favorite music tracks while on journey. Another aspect is the auto start and stop function that turns off the motor when it comes to a standstill. Its GT Sport Line trim which is newly added in its model line up, is offered with a panoramic glass roof, 40:20:40 split seat facility, BMW Driving Experience Control switch, iDrive system, electric power steering, and a few other such aspects that increases the level of convenience of its occupants.

Interior Measurements:


The best thing about it is the spacious internal cabin that guarantees sufficient leg, shoulder as well as head room. It also has a 60 litres fuel tank that is perfect for long trips. Meanwhile, the front head space in its latest trim is around 1048mm, while it measures 974mm in the rear. It comes with a large storage space of 520 litres that can be further increased up to 1600 litres.

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Ed's Take: Despite the downsizing the power on the petrol is as good as the old straight six that powered the outgoing version.

 

An eight speed steptronic automatic transmission gear box is coupled with its power plant that enables easier gear shifting. The time consumed by this vehicle to cross the 100 Kmph speed mark is approximately 7.4 to 7.9 seconds from a standstill. And, it achieves an impressive top speed of about 225 to 235 Kmph.

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: Both the engines fulfill their job and both are for different purposes. If you travel a lot, then the diesel makes sense. If you are bonkers about performance, there is no better option than the petrol engine. The 3 Series GT comes with only diesel engine at the moment and the power ratings are the same too. The 3 GT doesn’t get Sport+ mode.

 

The automaker has powered all its trims including the latest one with a commanding 2.0-litre diesel motor, which is integrated with a common rail direct fuel injection system. It has a total displacement capacity of 1995cc and includes turbocharger along with variable turbine geometry. This twin turbo mill not just gives an outstanding performance but also controls the level of fuel usage. It comes with 4-cylinders, sixteen valves and is coupled with an eight speed automatic transmission gear box. It can generate a maximum power and torque output of 184bhp and 380Nm respectively.

Mileage

Ed's Take: The diesel engine on the BMW 3 Series is really frugal as it returns a good fuel economy. Generally, luxury car buyers aren’t worried about fuel economy, but this is just an add-on advantage.


A common rail direct injection system is integrated to its twin turbo diesel engine, which returns a respectable mileage. It can give around 18 to 19 Kmpl on the expressways, but it comes down to somewhere around 14 Kmpl, when driven under city traffic conditions.

Power of BMW 3 Series

Ed's Take: The power on the diesel is good, but that on the petrol is mind-boggling. The turbocharged petrol is a real gem.

 

It comes with a 1995cc diesel motor that has the ability to produce a whopping power of 184bhp at 4000rpm, and generates maximum torque output of 380Nm ranging between 1750 to 2750rpm.

Accessories

Stereo & Accessories

Ed's Take: The BMW 3 Series comes loaded with various features like cruise control, start-stop system in traffic and heads-up display. These features are also available in the 3 Series GT.

 

It is bestowed with BMW ConnectedDrive system that allows its passengers to access several interesting apps. It provides handsfree, USB and Bluetooth connectivity along with audio streaming. A radio tuner, CD/MP3 player as well as Aux-In option is also available. The best sound output is guaranteed by its HiFi loudspeaker system that features high performance loudspeakers, an amplifier and a sophisticated equalizer. Apart from these, an advanced iDrive system is also offered through which, the functions related to entertainment, information as well as communication can be easily controlled. It features a 16.5cm display screen and a controller in the center console. Aside from these aspects, the owners can also opt for numerous accessories like textile foot mats, rear storage bag, luggage compartment tray, mud flaps, car cover and many other such useful and styling features.

You can now buy BMW 3 Series accessories online. Great discounts available.

Braking & Handling

Ed's Take: The handling of the 3-Series is fantastic and it is one of the best handling vehicles in its segment. However the ride is a bit harsh and also the steering is heavy for city driving.

 

The braking system of this sedan series is quite reliable, which comprise of a sturdy set of disc brakes fitted to both its front and rear wheels. This mechanism is further accompanied by anti lock braking system. In terms of suspension, it has a double joint tension strut assembled on its front axle, while the rear one gets a five arm axle. Effective handling of this vehicle is best ensured by its servotronic electric power steering system that provides excellent response all through the drive.

Safety & Security

Ed's Take: The safety features list on the 3 Series is long, just like that on any other luxury car. The 3 GT has a softer set-up comparatively.
 

On the safety front, it comes loaded with a number of crucial features that guarantees passenger security to a great extent. It has a rear view camera, which lets the driver view the area behind it in the control display. The park distance control aids in easy parking and maneuvering in confined spaces. The anti-lock braking system is another aspect, which avoids the wheels from locking. All the occupants are offered with three point seat belts, and additionally includes pyrotechnic belt tensioners and force limiters at front. Whereas, the dynamic stability and cornering brake control systems helps in stabilizing the vehicle and prevents it from skidding. It further includes an engine immobilizer system that prevents unauthorized access into the vehicle, while the ISOFIX child seat mounting is also offered. The level of protection is further enhanced by its intelligent airbag system, dynamic traction control, central locking system, side impact protection beams, run flat indicator, emergency spare wheel as well as warning triangle with first aid kit.

Wheels

Wheels

The wheel arches of its base level variant is equipped with a set of 16 inch alloy wheels, which have tubeless tyres of size 225/55 R16. Whereas, the remaining trims come with a set of 17 inch alloy wheels that are covered with 225/50 R17 sized radial tubeless tyres. On the other hand, its GT Sport Line variant is offered with a set of multi-spoke styled, 18 inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres bearing the size 225/50 R18. The owners can also opt for 18 inch star spoke or 19 inch double spoke designed alloy wheels.

Pros

1. Acceleration and pickup is rather impressive.

2. Stunning external appearance with numerous aspects.

3. Panoramic glass roof is a big plus point.

4. Enough leg and shoulder room is offered.

5. Several innovative aspects increases comfort levels.

Cons

1. Engine noise needs to be reduced.

2. Safety standards can be further improved.

3. Head space in the rear cabin should be increased.

4. Fuel economy is not that satisfactory.

5. A few additional styling features can be offered.

BMW 3 Gran Turismo Expert Review Expert Review
A long distance traveller vehicle is given the Grand Tourer (GT) badge. As always, Italians differ by calling their cars as Gran Turismo. It has been years since GT cars be it performance or luxury, have seen the light of the day and our maturing market is now getting such products. BMW had introduced the 5 GT back in 2010 and now it has introduced the 3 GT, which is the entry-level for this range. [read more]

    Look and Style - By far the most modern looking BMW.  It looks meaner and sportier than the outgoing 5th generation 3 series.  Especially, the corona rings (LED) are a treat to watch. Comfort - I must admit, after having driven a 5th generation 3-series in the US, I was worried about the ride quality for rear-passengers. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find the latest generation BMW sold in India is very well-adapted for Indian conditions... Read Full Review
