BMW will launch the new 3-Series sedan on July 27 in India. This is the sixth-gen model of the 3-Series sedan internally called the F30 by BMW.
The new 3-Series will help BMW pull up its sleeves and compete even more aggressively. It will compete with the Mercedes Benz C-Class and the Audi A4. BMW has put pedal to metal as far as promotional activities for the new sedan are concerned. There is even a teaser website for the 3-Series which the company calls the Ulitmat3.
The 3-series was the most affordable BMW in the country, until its sibling the X1 arrived. The 3-Series comes in five variants; the 320i, 330i, 320d Corporate Edition, 320d Executive and 320d Performance Edition. Also read: A quick guide to BMW Sedans in India
