About BMW 3 SERIES

The BMW 3 Series has a lot of recognition and a number of awards to its name, from being named The Family Car of the Year 2012 by Top Gear Magazine to making it on various 'bests' lists.

It has been designed to reflect the traditional features of a classic BMW, with its own modern, elegant additions. Extended, ascending lines stretch the vehicle optically, giving it an enhanced and dynamic character. Precise contours are what the design on the car mostly comprises of, making it iconic in its own right. Like a lot of its predecessors, the BMW 3 Series has a classical three-box design. A long bonnet, short front overhang, long wheelbase and rear-seat greenhouse promise pure aerodynamics.

The interior of the car encloses the driver with classical driver guidance, creaking the feeling of a cockpit. On account of being skillfully designed, you have optimum access to all the important control functions on the instrument display.

The BMW 3 Series runs on 4 cylinders and a 2.0 litre 184 bhp V16 diesel engine. As usual, it comes with air conditioning, power steering, rear A/C vents, an accessory power outlet and many more amenities. Also, for the safety of its passengers, the car comes with an anti-locking braking system, front and rear parking sensors, central locking, driver airbag, passenger airbag, rear seatbelts and more.

Mercedes-Benz C Class and Audi A4 fall under the same budget, but BMW 3 Series offers an advantage of better fuel efficiency and mileage over them.
