2014 BMW 3 GT launched in Mumbai press release

Mumbai. The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo was launched in Mumbai at a special customer

evening hosted by Infinity Cars, BMW’s exclusive dealership in the city.

 

Locally produced at the BMW Plant Chennai, the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is available at

Infinity Cars.

 

Mr. Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “A revolutionary concept, the all-new BMW 3

Series Gran Turismo, combines the sporty yet elegant character of a coupé with high functionality and

impressively versatile interior. With countless innovations and thoughtful details, the all-new BMW 3

Series Gran Turismo presents a new stylistic assurance around the use of space, boasts a distinctive

presence on the road and offers similarly pronounced driving pleasure. Impressive spaciousness,

together with a high seating position, makes the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo perfect for long

trips. No other vehicle can support business, leisure and sports activities with such natural ease.”

 

An unrivalled symbiosis of form and space in the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo creates a

unique look and makes a powerful impression. It unites the best of both worlds: an embodiment of

pure dynamism and a sense of spaciousness.

 

The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will be available in a diesel variant (the BMW 320d Gran

Turismo) at an all India ex-showroom price of INR 42,75,000.

The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo.

The inimitably stylish appearance of the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is accentuated by a

powerfully formed front end, a stunningly stretched silhouette with coupé-style roofline, frameless side

windows and a flowing rear end with large load aperture.

 

An active rear spoiler – the first of its type on a BMW – provides visual lightness and reduces lift at

touring speeds. It is automatically deployed at 110 km/h and retracted at speeds below 70 km/h.

When deployed at high speeds, the spoiler increases downforce on the rear axle and ensures perfect

directional stability when driving fast.

 

Another very distinctive new BMW introduction are the so-called Air Breathers integrated elegantly

into the vehicle’s flanks, which reduce turbulence in this area and reduce the car’s aerodynamic drag.

 

Everything in the interior is generously proportioned and ensures first-class comfort. The fine-
wood interior trim with Pearl Chrome accent lines and countless chrome inlays, create an exclusive

atmosphere that blends seamlessly into the exquisite overall design.

 

‘Space is an essential part of true luxury’ – One of the outstanding features of the all-new BMW 3

Series Gran Turismo is its impressive spaciousness, which together with the high seating position,

makes it perfect for long trips. The Panorama glass roof proves that even the most generous interior

can be made to appear even more spacious.

 

The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo also provides a generous 520-litre luggage compartment

which can easily be expanded to up to 1,600 liters thanks to a 40/20/40-split rear backrest with fold-
down headrests. With the electrically operated tailgate as a standard feature, the large, wide rear door

opens and closes at the touch of a button.

 

The 2.0 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine combines advanced CommonRail

direct injection with innovative turbocharger technology to develop an output of 135 kW/184 hp and an

impressive torque of 380 Nm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/hr takes 7.9 seconds and top speed is 226

km/h.

 

The eight-speed automatic transmission performs smooth, almost imperceptible gear shifts. At any

time, in any gear, the transmission collaborates perfectly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full

power and efficiency.

 

The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo with state-of-the-art safety features provides maximum

support in any situation with six air bags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) including Dynamic Traction

Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control, Electronic vehicle immobilizer and crash sensor, Side impact

protection and impact absorbing front and rear bumpers.

which enables the driver to choose between different driving modes to suit the driving conditions.

(Comfort, ECO PRO and Sport).

most comprehensive technology packages to reduce fuel consumption and increase driving

dynamics – such as Intelligent Lightweight Construction, Automatic Start/Stop function, Brake

Energy Regeneration, Electric Power Steering, 50:50 Weight Distribution and many other innovative
