Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Toyota Fortuner

    • More powerful diesel engine
    • 2021 facelift looks sportier than before
    • Legender looks different and more stylish than the regular Fortuner
    • Added features aid convenience in the cabin
    • Electronic Differential Lock will aid off-road ability

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Toyota Fortuner

    • Still does not get a sunroof
    • Fortuner has become costlier by up to Rs 3 lakh
    • Legender does not get the 11-speaker music system
