BMW 3 Series Review


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 lineup. It is assembled locally at the firm's manufacturing unit, which is based near Chennai. What differentiates it from the existing ones is its spectacular exterior and interior design elements. On the outside, its kidney shaped radiator grille has slats and an air breather garnished with high gloss Black finish are the main highlights. Its side profile has Matte Black finished side window frames, whereas the elegant set of alloy wheels adds to its sportiness. Internally too, it has attractive elements that can leave anyone mesmerized. The name, BMW Sport embossed on its aluminum entry sills is pretty good, and the fine-wood inserts accompanied with pearl chrome accentuation further gives it a rich appeal. A smooth dashboard in the cockpit is integrated with some advanced and stylish equipments. The steering wheel gets a fine leather wrap, and the center console portrays a vigorous look. Besides these, its well cushioned seats are covered with premium leather and the red contrast stitching just enhances its style quotient. There is also a proficient air conditioning unit that assures instant cooling of the cabin and the audio unit supports Bluetooth connectivity and other input options. Aside from these, some storage and utility based features are also present for more 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 is loaded with various security aspects and this too is no exception. Some of these are engine immobilizer, ISOFIX child seat mounting, pyrotechnic belt tensioners to its front seat belts, and anti lock braking as well. The dynamic stability control aids in keeping it steady in any driving condition. In terms of technical specifications, it is incorporated with a 2.0-litre, twin turbo diesel drive train. With a displacement capacity of 1995cc, it produces maximum 184bhp and 380Nm torque output. The pickup is quite amazing, and its mileage is also decent. Altogether, it has top class and impressive design elements to lure its buyers at the first glance itself.

BMW 3 Series Exterior


The robust body structure and outstanding external appearance is what makes it a favorite choice of numerous enthusiasts. Right from the radiator grille at front to the glowing tail lamps in its rear, each and every element makes it quite distinctive from others. In particular, this newly added GT Sport Line has kidney shaped grille with nine slats in high gloss black color. This is emphasized by the thick chrome surround and the company's emblem is embossed at the tip of its bonnet. The dynamic shape of its headlights is another remarkable thing to notice in this profile. The bi-xenon headlights produce a radiant light path, whereas the LED daytime running lights enhance its style. An air intake section is fitted between a pair of fog lamps. Apart from these, a wide screen including a couple of rain sensing wipers give a clear and better view. Moving to its sides, the high gloss B-pillars and window surrounds in Matte Black finish provides a stunning appeal. The foldable external mirrors have heating and automatic anti dazzle functions. They are integrated with LED side turn blinkers. Then, its door handles are painted in body color and there are some expressive lines that stretch along with its length. The most captivating aspect in its side profile is definitely the 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. What’s noticeable in its rear end are luminous tail light cluster equipped with turn indicators and there is also 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. Also pair of reflectors on its bumper, and chrome treated exhaust pipes grant it a stunning appeal.

Exterior Measurements:

The overall length is 4624mm, and width is 1811mm, and goes up to 2031mm if outside mirrors are included. It measures 1429mm in height and is built with a wheelbase of 2810mm. Besides these, it has a minimum ground clearance of 157mm. It is built with a total length, height and width of 4824mm, 1508mm and 2047mm with door mirrors included. Its wheelbase is 2920mm and has 165mm ground clearance.

BMW 3 Series Interior


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 is so fascinating right from its two tone color scheme to well cushioned seats. And the presence of sophisticated features such as the ConnectedDrive, AC unit and a few more give a contemporary feel. The door sills are easily noticeable while entering the cabin, and these have the 'BMW Sport' lettering in this latest option. This new addition also has fine wood inserts with pearl chrome plating, and its leather seat covers have red contrast stitching on it. There is a well designed dashboard that is equipped with air vents, glove box compartment and an illuminated instrument cluster. This panel has a fuel gauge, speedometer, rev counter and so on. It has a sporty steering wheel that is wrapped with fine quality leather. Both seats in the first row are electrically adjustable, and the driver's seat additionally gets memory function. The attractive glass sunroof lets in air, warm sun light and enhances their convenience. The rear seat has center armrest with two cup holders. Apart from these, it also has assist grips, pockets on doors, smokers’ package, floor mats in velour, lights package with ambient lighting and so on.

Interior Comfort:

Comfort is best ensured in this vehicle, as it is packed with a number of innovative aspects. Starting with its multi-functional steering column, it is mounted with various switches that increase the convenience. A dual zone automatic air conditioning unit is useful to control the temperature inside. There are air vents for spreading cool air all over and to create pleasant ambiance. Roller sun blinds are present for rear and side windows, and the 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. The inside mirrors have automatic anti dazzle function. All its windows are power operated, and vanity mirrors have sunvisors. It has an infotainment unit that allows its passengers to enjoy their favorite music tracks while on journey. Then, there is auto start and stop that turns off the motor when it comes to a standstill. The GT Sport Line which is newly added in its lineup, has a panoramic glass roof, 40:20:40 split seat facility, BMW Driving Experience Control switch, iDrive system, and a steering column that increases their convenience of its occupants.

Interior Measurements:

The best thing about it is the spacious interiors that guarantee sufficient leg, shoulder and head room. It also has a 60 litres fuel tank that is perfect for long trips. The front head space in its latest trim is around 1048mm, and it measures 974mm in the rear. It has 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 paired with its mill that enables easier gear shifting. The time consumed by it 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 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 fitted it with a commanding 2.0-litre diesel motor. It is integrated with a common rail direct injection. It has a total displacement capacity of 1995cc and has a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry. This twin turbo mill not just gives an outstanding performance but also controls the level of fuel usage. It has 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.


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 is incorporated to its twin turbo oil burner, which returns a respectable mileage. It can return 18 to 19 Kmpl on the expressways, but it drops 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 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.

BMW 3 Series 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 that allows its passengers to access interesting apps. It supports handsfree, USB and Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming. A radio tuner, CD/MP3 and Aux-In option is also available. The best sound output is guaranteed by its HiFi loudspeaker system that has high performance loudspeakers, an amplifier and a sophisticated equalizer. Through the iDrive system, the functions related to entertainment, information as well as communication can be easily controlled. It has a 16.5cm display screen and a controller in the center console. Aside from these, the owners can also opt for numerous accessories like textile foot mats, storage bag, luggage compartment tray, mud flaps, and car cover to name a few.

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 mechanism of this sedan series is quite reliable. It comprise of a sturdy set of disc brakes fitted to all its wheels. This mechanism is accompanied by anti lock braking. In terms of suspension, it has a double joint tension strut assembled on its front axle, and the rear one gets a five arm axle. Its effective handling is ensured by its servotronic electric power steering that provides excellent response throughout 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.

It is loaded with a number of crucial features that guarantee passenger security to a great extent. Its rear view camera 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 is useful to avoid the wheels from locking. All the occupants are offered with three point seat belts, and additionally have pyrotechnic belt tensioners and force limiters at front. The dynamic stability and cornering brake control helps in its stability and prevents it from skidding. It also includes an immobilizer that avoids unauthorized access into the vehicle, while there is also ISOFIX child seat mounting. Protection is further enhanced by its intelligent airbag system, dynamic traction control, central locking, side impact protection beams, run flat indicator, emergency spare wheel and warning triangle with first aid kit.

BMW 3 Series Wheels


The wheel arches of 320D Prestige have a set of 16 inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres of size 225/55 R16. The remaining ones have 17 inch alloy wheels that are adorned with 225/50 R17 sized radial tubeless tyres. The GT Sport Line 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 alloy wheels.


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 increase comfort.


1. Engine noise needs to be reduced.

2. Safety standards can be improved.

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

4. Mileage is not that satisfactory.

5. Additional styling features can be offered.

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]
