The 2019 BMW 3-Series sedan has been spied in India ahead of its expected launch. The new 3-series sedan from BMW was first showcased at the 2018 Paris Auto Expo. The car has also been spied testing in India, on a few occasions.
The seventh-generation BMW 3-Series is one of the most popular offerings from the German brand. The 2019 model now comes with a range of updates to its features and the list of equipment, along with receiving a refreshed styling.
The 2019 BMW 3-Series comes across as a completely new model. The sedan now has larger overall dimensions, yet weighing 55kg less than the previous generation model. The new larger dimensions of the BMW 3-Series come in at 4,709mm in length, 1,827mm wide and 1,442mm in height. The wheelbase of the sedan has also increased by 41mm, translating to improved cabin space, especially in the form of leg room for rear passengers.
The 2019 BMW 3-Series will be available with two diesel and one petrol variant - 320d, 320d xDrive and 330i. The three variants will further be available in three trim levels: SE Sport and M Sport.
The diesel engine options consist of a 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit with two states-of-tune. The 320d comes with the lower state-of-tune with 187bhp and 400Nm of torque, the 320d xDrive gets the higher tune with 263bhp and 580Nm of torque.
The 330i, on the other hand, comes with a 2.0-litre petrol engine. It produces 255bhp and 400Nm of torque. All three engine variants are mated to a standard eight-speed automatic gearbox.
BMW is also said to introduce a plug-in hybrid 330e variant at a later stage. The 330e will come with a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to an electric motor. The motor alone will produce an additional 87bhp while offering a total range of 60km in all-electric mode.
The new 2019 BMW 3-Series brings with it a number of new features and equipment list. It comes packed with safety and driver assist functions such as pedestrian and collision warning systems, cruise control, stop/go assist, steering and lane control assist and side collision alerts; to name a few.
Other standard features on the new BMW 3-series: LED headlamps, LED tail lights, three-zone climate control, 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and voice and gesture commands.
We also recently reported the BMW X7 being spotted for the first time in India. The BMW X7 is the first seven-seater SUV from the German brand and is their new flagship offering. The BMW X7 is expected to launch in India later this month.
Thoughts On The 2019 BMW 3-Series Spied
The BMW 3-series now comes with sharper lines and larger overall dimensions compared to the previous generation model. However, it remains unmistakably a 3-series. Once launched in India, the 2019 BMW 3-Series will rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4 and the Jaguar XE.
