    BMW updates 3 Series line-up in India

    The BMW 3 Series for India has been updated for the 2021 model year. While the German brand recently introduced the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine – its first-ever right-hand drive long-wheelbase version of the 3 Series – at the lower end of the line-up, the BMW 320d Sport has been taken off the shelf for the second time. It was earlier discontinued in March 2020 and re-launched in August 2020.

    • BMW 320d now only available in mid-spec Luxury Line form 
    • 330i continues to be offered in the entry-level Sport and top-spec M Sport trims

    The discontinuation of the 320d Sport has resulted in only one diesel engine variant of the 3 Series remaining in BMW’s India line-up – the 320d Luxury Line. The 320d is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine producing 190hp and 400Nm of torque, and is mated to an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The 320d Luxury Line is priced at Rs 47.9 lakh.
