New BMW 3 series launched

The new, 6th range of the BMW 3 series has just been launched.

The new 3 Series Sedan has  grown in terms of dimensions. It has a wider track with a long wheelbase and shorter overhangs. It still looks like a 3 series.

Increased interior space: a 93mm increase in length enhances the elegant, sporty silhouette of the 3 Series. The rear passengers also gain from the car’s increased exterior dimensions and are welcomed by extra legroom inside the rear doors as they climb aboard. There is also 15mm  of additional knee room behind the front seats, while headroom is up by 8mm.

The range is available in three equipment lines in addition to the entry-level version. The Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line allow customers to give their car a personal and eye-catching appearance and adapt it to their individual preferences. The careful coordination of equipment features embraces both exterior design elements and the selection of materials and colours for each model. An M Sport package with special exterior and interior features is in the pipeline for the midyear in 2012.

Auto Start-Stop function comes as standard with all engine-gearbox combinations.

The 328i is a 2.0 TwinPower Turbo. The four-cylinder engine  develops 180 kW and peak torque of 350 Nm from as low down as 1 250 rpm, accelerating the BMW 3 Series from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. Average fuel consumption is just 6,4 litres/100km.

The new 320i will develop maximum power of 135 kW at 5 000 rpm and peak torque of 270 Nm at just 1 250 rpm. Average fuel consumption is 6,1 litres/100km.

The 6 cylinder 335i  TwinPower Turbo with 3.0-litre displacement develops peak output of 225 kW and maximum torque of 400 Nm at just 1 200 rpm.

The 320d1 develops 135 kW and 380 Nm of torque.

An eight-speed automatic, which supports the Auto Start-Stop function, can be specified as an option in conjunction with all the petrol and diesel engines for the new BMW 3 Series.
