Worthy Car- BMW 330i GT
First and foremost, this is a facelift of the BMW 3-series GT, perhaps the most underrated of the Bavarian brand's models in India. It's got as much rear legroom than a 5-series thanks to its near-three-metre wheelbase, and luggage space to rival BMW's X SUVs and with a price that's not too much high. The new bumpers, front and rear, adaptive full-LED headlamps, reprofiled LED taillamps, new alloy wheel designs, classier interior trims, a bit more equipment and the newest version of BMW's 2.0-litre diesel engine, with 190hp, added refinement and smoother power delivery. With 252hp and 350Nm, on paper, this new motor is a clear step up from the 184hp 20i, a worthy successor to the old 30i, and a perfect match for the latest crop of powerful four-cylinder petrol from Mercedes-Benz (GLC 300) and Jaguar (XE 25t). The GT gets four driving modes as standard, Eco Pro, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ and understandably, the first of those isn't very thrilling with its dulled throttle responses and slow, smooth shifts. Comfort is still the better all-around mode and the one you'll find yourself in most of the time. This is because it does get you a little more pep off the line without sacrificing too much by way of the economy. Sport and Sport+ gets you more aggression from the engine and gearbox (the latter disengages the traction control too), a firmer steering and a little more noise from the exhaust.
