In order to tackle the fierce competition form Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4, BMW has evolved its 3 Series model recently with a starting price tag of around $40,000. The new model is code-named G20 and was showcased at the recent Paris Motor Show. It is an endeavor by BMW to make the 3 Series the new benchmark for small sedan market. The new model is set to be available in both two-wheel and all-wheel drive variants.
The entry level model will house a 4-cyinder 2.0 liter engine pumping out 255 horsepower. The engine will be turbocharged to return high fuel efficiency figures. Since it is a BMW, you can expect new tech features spread throughout the vehicle. It borrows some of the design and tech features from the new X5 SUV especially the 12.3-inch digital instruments cluster.
The trunk of the 3 Series has also been expanded and you can now order one with a glass roof just like the one in the C-Class. The performance variants of the 3-series will come next spring for those who want optimal performance. BMW has also introduced a new personal assistant for the drivers to aid in driving around especially in urban areas. This has been done to compete with a similar offering put forth recently by Mercedes-Benz.
Some of the safety features that will accompany the new model include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and cross-traffic alert and adaptive dampers. Adaptive dampers make the ride more comfortable and relaxing. Moreover, you can make the ride sporty with the touch of a button. The new model will also come standard with full-LED headlights that are usually very helpful at night. You can spend a little more to opt for adaptive LED headlights with Laserlight technology. These are pretty cool with their “non-dazzling high beam” functionality.
