BMW launched the seventh-gen 3 Series sedan in India in August 2019. The carmaker is now ready to bring its longer wheelbase version, called the Gran Limousine, to our market on January 21, 2021. What deserves a mention is that India will be the first country to get its right-hand drive version, as opposed to China.

BMW offers the standard sedan with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine in two states of tune: 190PS/400Nm and 260PS/400Nm, and a 2.0-litre diesel unit producing 190PS and 400Nm.
