BMW shows off 3 Series, offers insurance discount
Lovers of the BWM 3 series maybe leaving the showroom with a discounted insurance rate and a free registration, authorised dealer of the brand in Nigeria, Coscharis Motors told The Guardian in Lagos on Wednesday.
Showing off the facelifted model of the car, the company expressed optimism that the car offers satisfaction both in everyday driving and on curvy rough road.With price starting from about N19, 000,000, Sales Divisional General Manager, Joseph Omokhapue, said despite the over 70 per cent increase in the prices of cars in Nigeria due to FOREX, the base prices for the 3-Series tend to be largely reasonable and highly competitive.
In terms of driving, the company boasted that the brand has earned its prowess in driving technology and arguably holds the biggest class advantage.According to him, the new 3 series is not necessarily more tactile than the older ones, but it’s certainly smoother and more supple, particularly with the must-have optional Adamptive M Sport suspension.
The 2016 edition of the vehicle received a few styling tweaks with the hood lower at the nose, but rises higher than the previous model thanks to pedestrian safety regulations.Headlights and taillights have been redesigned with even more distinctive signatures when illuminated. Front and rear fascias were also reshaped.
There are two variants of a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4: it makes 180 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque in the entry-level 320i, while rising to 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque under the hood of a mid-range 328i. Under the hood of the new range-topping 340i is an all-new turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 that produces 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. The 335i Gran Turismo retains last year’s 300-hp six-cylinder engine.
