BMW launches 330i GT M Sport

Auto components India - - CONTENTS - ACI

BMW has added a new top-spec trim to its 3-se­ries GT line-up in In­dia, the 330i GT M Sport, priced at Rs 49.40 lakh (ex-show­room, In­dia). The new range-top­ping trim com­mands a pre­mium of about Rs 80,000 com­pared to the petrol Luxury Line vari­ant.

The M Sport vari­ant fea­tures sporty cos­metic changes on the out­side, in­clud­ing the gloss black-fin­ished grille slats, new 18-inch al­loy wheels (tyres sizes are now 225/50 in the front and 255/45 at the rear), M badg­ing and chromefin­ished ex­haust pipes. The range-top­ping trim also gets an exclusive metal­lic Es­to­ril Blue paint fin­ish. On the in­side, the new vari­ant gets a large heads-up dis­play, a 10.5-inch dig­i­tal in­stru­ment clus­ter, an M Sport mul­ti­func­tion steer­ing wrapped in leather, M badges on the door sill and head­lin­ers fin­ished in grey.

In terms of equip­ment, the 330i GT M Sport gets all the fea­tures of the 330i Luxury Line, like BMW’s iDrive with an 8.8-inch dis­play, the nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem with 3D maps in­te­grated with GPS, BMW Apps, Park Dis­tance Con­trol (PDC) that in­cludes front and rear park­ing sen­sors, a re­vers­ing cam­era and smart­phone con­nec­tiv­ity via Blue­tooth, USB and Auxin. The range-top­per also adds cruise con­trol with a brak­ing func­tion.

The safety kit on the luxury sedan in­cludes six airbags, ABS with brake as­sist, Dynamic Sta­bil­ity Con­trol (DSC) in­clud­ing Dynamic Trac­tion Con­trol (DTC), Cor­ner­ing Brake Con­trol (CBC), side-im­pact pro­tec­tion, Isofix child seat mounts, run-flat tyres with re­in­forced side­walls, an elec­tronic ve­hi­cle im­mo­biliser and crash sen­sors.

The new vari­ant shares its 1,998cc, four-cylin­der, turbo-petrol engine with the 330i Luxury Line, which makes 252hp and 350Nm of peak torque. The mo­tor is mated to an eight-speed au­to­matic gear­box that sends power to the rear wheels. The BMW 3-se­ries GT – a more prac­ti­cal take on the stan­dard 3-se­ries thanks to the longer wheel­base, in­creased cabin and boot space – does not have any di­rect ri­vals in In­dia.
