2018 BMW 320d GT Sport costs Rs. 4.60 lakh cheaper than the top-spec 330i M Sport and uses 2.0-litre 190 hp producing diesel engine
BMW India has announced the expansion of its 3-Series GT portfolio with a new variant. The 2018 BMW 320d GT Sport comes with a price tag of Rs. 46.60 lakh and it costs Rs. 2.60 lakh and Rs. 4.60 lakh cheaper than 320d luxury Line and range-topping 330i M Sport variants respectively (all prices ex-showroom).
The German luxury automaker has made subtle changes on the outside to make the 320d GT Sport look different from other two variants. The front grille slats on the signature kidney grille are chrome treated and the exhaust pipes are chromed out as well.
It gains contrast red stitching on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, newly designed alloy wheels with 18-inch size, sport seats for driver as well as co-passenger, etc. The BMW 320d GT Sport adorns three paint schemes: Black Sapphire (metallic), Imperial Blue Brilliant Effect (metallic) and Alpine White (non-metallic).
Stepping inside the cabin, the customers will be treated with two-tone red and black or beige and black upholstery. The new entry-level variant gets powered by the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine found in the 320d Luxury Line with no change in engine outputs.
It is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 190 hp at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of peak torque delivered at 1,750 rpm. As for the transmission, an eight-speed automatic does the duty and sends power to only the rear wheels. BMW offers launch control system as standard while other significant safety features include six airbags, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with brake assist function, traction control, and dynamic stability control among others.
There is a whole host of equipment available such as 10.5-inch instrument cluster, automatic high beam assist, parking sensors, 8.7-inch colour screen, navigation, Apple CarPlay connectivity, standard BMW iDrive system, BMW Apps, Bluetooth, and USB provision, nine speaker audio, paddle shifters, split folding rear seats, etc.
