In May 2022, BMW released a mid-lifecycle update for the seventh-generation 3-Series, and unsurprisingly, the "Gran Limousine" long-wheelbase model is receiving the same treatment.
Now BMW is introducing the long-wheelbase version of the 3-Series Gran Limousine in India. Notably, the standard-wheelbase model of the 3-Series as well as the Chinese-spec long-wheelbase vehicle have previously been modified.
The front end will see the most styling modifications. The Gran Limousine receives a sharper front, grille, and smaller LED headlights. The Indian-spec model only offers the latter.
The wheelbase is 110 mm longer, maintaining the same profile. The standard 18-inch alloy wheels have five double spokes.
The new digital cockpit known as BMW Curved Display is the focal point within. It has a 14.8-inch infotainment touchscreen running the iDrive 8 OS and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Premium amenities like the 16-speaker 464 Watt Harman Kardon sound system, the panorama sunroof, the M Leather steering wheel, and light-colored leather upholstery for the seats are included in the equipment.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine in the 330Li is capable of 258 horsepower and 400 Newton meters, while the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel in the 320Ld is capable of 190 horsepower and 400 Nm. The eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission that drives the rear axle is standard on both vehicles.
The pricing of the 2023 BMW 3-Series Gran Limousine in India starts at $70,866.
