Delhi : On January 10, 2023, BMW India will unveil its most recent 3 Series Gran Limousine facelift. With some exterior improvements, the long wheelbase 3 Series will be redesigned. After the premiere of the most recent model of the BMW 7 Series and i7, it will be the German automaker's second launch this month.

According to the manufacturer, the 2023 BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine facelift will include recognizable stylistic updates along the same lines as the 2022 BMW M340i facelift. It features the updated headlamps, which are now more pointed, as well as an improved kidney grille, updated bumper style, and new alloy wheels. On the long wheelbase sedan with the noticeable additional length and the Hofmeister kink near the rearmost pillar, its silhouette will not change. The car is anticipated to have revised LED taillights and a new bumper at the back to complete the cosmetic updates.

The cabin's interior is anticipated to undergo some significant changes. It is anticipated that the Gran Limousine facelift model of this car would have a new curved display with two displays installed in the dashboard. For a clean appearance, the device effectively combines the touchscreen infotainment system and digital console into a single continuous glass panel. Other improvements to the sedan include new control surfaces for the centre console and reworked air vents. The vehicle will also now run the iDrive 8 user interface.

The sedan will receive the same 3 Series GL facelift with the 2.0-liter twin-turbo petrol and diesel choices. The 320d diesel can generate a maximum torque of 187 bhp and 400 Nm, compared to the 330i petrol's 254 horsepower and 400 Nm. An 8-speed automatic transmission is mated to both engines, sending power to the back wheels.

The seventh version of the 7 Series and the first i7 electric car were both recently introduced by the German automaker in India. The new i7 is priced from 1.95 crore, whilst the new BMW 7 Series has a starting price of 1.70 crore. Prices are all ex-showroom. Bookings for each of these models begin on January 7, 2023, and deliveries start in March of that same year.
