About BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine
The BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine is finally on sale in India with pricing starting at Rs. 54.5 lakh for the base 330Li Luxury Line variant and going all the way up to Rs. 56.9 lakh for the range topping 330Li M Sport trim, while the 320Ld Luxury Line diesel trim has been priced at Rs. 55.9 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, India). Those aware of BMW’s nomenclature already know that ‘L’ in the trim line refers to the long wheelbase and that’s exactly what this new 3 Series is. It is the long wheelbase version of the existing BMW 3 Series sedan and replaces the 3 Series GT in the Bavarian carmaker’s range.
The BMW 3 Series GL has a 110 mm longer wheelbase compared to the space between the wheels of standard car and it will be sold alongside the standard wheelbase model. And those extra muscles have been added gracefully in its rear door. The wheelbase of the car is 2961 mm, while the overall length is 4,819 mm which is also up by 110 mm At 1,827 mm it is exactly as wide as the regular sedan but a height of 1,463 mm makes it is 28 mms taller. It is the longest and most spacious model in its class and is expected to add to BMW’s overall volumes, a strategy which we have already seen working for Mercedes-Benz with the E-Class LWB.
Now that added wheelbase makes for 43 mm more legroom on the inside and that’s the only change when compared to the standard car as other than that it remains pretty much the same. You continue to get stuff like the 12.3-inch instrument cluster and the 10.25-inch screen give it a futuristic appeal, the latter gets Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. You also get features like wireless charging, air purifier, three-zone climate control, connected car tech and a panoramic sunroof. Even the cabin layout remains unchanged.
Under the hood, you get 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, twin-turbo petrol and diesel engines that churn out 190 bhp and 258 bhp respectively. Both engines also put out around 400 Nm of peak torque and are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. While the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine does not have any direct rival in India, it will continue to rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4 and Jaguar XE among others.
