The India-spec 2019 BMW 3 Series will be offered in two variants - BMW 330i and the BMW 320d, which will be offered in three trims each - Sport, Luxury Line, M Sport. Power on the 330i comes from the 2.0-litre in-line four turbo petrol motor tuned for 255 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque, while the 320d draws power from 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine that develops 188 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. Both units come paired with BMW's 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission.

In terms of design, the new BMW 3 Series mimics the styling from the 8 Series, sporting the larger kidney grilles, LED headlamps with the L-shaped DRLs, while the rear gets the wide wraparound LED taillights that are extremely distinctive. As tradition goes though, the Hofmeister kink design cue on the C-pillar that is synonymous with the 3 Series continues with the seventh generation version as well. Interestingly, the 3 Series also gets self-levelling hub caps that have otherwise been a Rolls-Royce affair.
