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.

 

The firm has coupled its diesel mill with an eight speed steptronic automatic transmission gear box that enhances shift comfort and reduces fuel consumption. It also enables torque output to its rear wheels. This vehicle consumes nearly 7.4 seconds to break the speed limit of 100 Kmph from a standstill. And, it has the ability to attain a top speed of about 235 Kmph, which is quite impressive.

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.

 

This impressive model from this brand is available in a few variants that are equipped with a 2.0-litre diesel engine. It comes with TwinPower turbo technology that helps in cutting down the level of fuel consumption besides improving power output and performance. This common rail direct fuel injection based motor has a turbocharger along with variable turbine geometry. It carries four cylinders that are further fitted with 16 valves. This engine comes with a total displacement capacity of 1995cc. It is mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission that enables easier shifting of gears. This motor has the ability to churn out a maximum power of 184bhp along with a peak torque of 380Nm, which is rather good considering the Indian road and traffic conditions.

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.


This model series is an outstanding vehicle in terms of performance and fuel consumption. It is equipped with a commanding diesel engine that is integrated with a common rail direct injection system. This helps it in returning a maximum mileage of around 18.88 Kmpl when driven on the highways, whereas it gives nearly 13 to 14 Kmpl within the city.

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.

 

This TwinPower diesel motor comes with a turbocharger along with variable turbine geometry. It is capable of generating a maximum power of 184bhp at 4000rpm and at the same time, yields a peak torque output of 380Nm in the range of 1750 to 2750rpm, which is rather good.

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 blessed with an advanced audio unit that offers the best in car entertainment to its occupants, while allowing them to listen to their favorite music all through the drive.

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 car maker has incorporated in this series with a reliable braking system that performs exceptionally well. Both the front and rear wheels are fitted with a robust set of disc brakes. It also comes with anti lock braking system that further boosts this mechanism. This vehicle is bestowed with a proficient suspension system that keeps it well balanced and stable at all times irrespective of road conditions. On the other hand, it comes with a power assisted steering wheel that has tilt adjustment function. It is highly responsive and makes maneuvering quite easier to a driver even in heavy traffic conditions.

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.
 

There are a number of security features available in this sedan series, which makes it one of the safest vehicles in the country's market. It comes with an anti lock braking system that prevents the wheels from locking. It also protects it from skidding especially when driving on slippery surfaces. It has an advanced engine immobilizer system that safeguards the vehicle from theft and avoids any unauthorized entry into it. There are three point seat belts available for all occupants along with pyrotechnic belt tensioners and force limiters at front. It has a rigid body structure that is capable to withstand impact and keeps the passengers safe. Besides these, it includes dual front, head as well as side airbags, which offer maximum protection in the event of a collision. In addition to these, it also includes dynamic stability control, traction control, brake assist, run flat indicator, emergency spare wheel, side impact protection, ISOFIX child seat mounting, crash sensors, central locking system, cornering brake control, intelligent maintenance system, warning triangle as well as first aid kit. All these together, guarantees high level of protection to its passengers and the vehicle as well.

Wheels

The entry level trim of this sedan has its wheel arches equipped with a set of 16 inch alloy wheels, which are covered with tubeless tyres of size 225/55 R16. Meanwhile, the Sport Line and Luxury Line variants are equipped with a modish set of 17 inch alloy wheels that have 225/50 R17 sized radial tubeless tyres. These radials deliver an impressive performance on all kinds of roads, while ensuring a safe as well as comfortable drive.

BMW 3 Series Pros

1. Outstanding exteriors with many notable features.

2. Its powerful engine gives the best performance.

3. ConnectedDrive system is an advantage.

4. Leg as well as head space is quite sufficient.

5. Fuel economy, acceleration and pickup are all quite good.

2. Interior styling and designing can be further improved.

3. Rear head space is not so spacious.

4. Low ground clearance is a minus point.

5. A few more innovative aspects can be added.

    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
