BMW 3 Series LWB in Beijing

BMW-3-Series-LWB-in-Beijing

While all eyes are on the New York Auto Show, BMW today announced a first model that will make its world premiere at the "Beijing Auto Show" at the end of April. This is a 3 LWB* Series declination. This extended wheelbase version will join a range of already composed 5 LWB Series and 7 LWB Series. Chinese customers seem to have a soft spot for extended versions and increased legroom.

This 3 Series displays a wheelbase of 2.92 meters, 11 cm more than the classic version, also available in the Middle Kingdom. This "LWB" is particularly recognizable by its long rear door.

The Munich manufacturer will offer three engines to the catalog, the 320 block of Li-equipped 2.0-liter turbo with 184 horsepower, the 328 Li with the same engine pushed to 245 horsepower and 335 Li with the six cylinder 3.0 liter turbocharged 306-horsepower strong.

All versions come standard automatic transmission and eight-speed transmission to the rear wheels.

Reserved for the Chinese market, the BMW 3 Series LWB will be manufactured at the BMW brand in Shenyang.
