Under the hood, you get 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, twin-turbo petrol and diesel engines that churn out 254 bhp and 187 bhp respectively. Both engines also put out 400 Nm of peak torque and are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. While the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine does not have any direct rival in India at present, it will likely see some competition increasing after the imminent arrival of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine sedan which will likely undercut this one in terms of pricing, being an entry-level sedan. The BMW 3 Series GL will also rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4 and the Jaguar XE among others.
