Singapore. BMW Asia and Performance Motors announced the availability of the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport, combining the elegance of a coupé, with the spaciousness of a luxury sedan, and the boot capacity of a station wagon.

At 4,824 millimetres in length, the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport is around 200 millimetres longer than the other members of the BMW 3 Series family, taking it closer to luxury-class territory. The design of the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport, which has been sculpted to visibly greater dynamic effect at both the front and rear, heightens the impression of class. The new, standard-fitted LED headlights for dipped and high beam and the LED front fog lamps lend the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport a more sporting appearance. The car has a visually broader stance on the road. The combination of updated LED rear lights and more zestful lines brings extra brawn to the rear styling.

The interior of the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport has an even more sophisticated feel, thanks to upgraded materials and accents. Extra chrome around the interior controls, and new decorative wood elements, colours and leather trim variants take perceived quality to another new level, while the interior’s haptic and ergonomic attributes have also been further enhanced. Sportiness coupled with the elegance of a coupé, the comfort and convenience of four doors, a seating position raised by 59 millimetres with excellent all-round visibility, and a generous feeling of space are the highlights of the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport. The space argument is particularly persuasive in the rear compartment, where three full-size seats and legroom more familiar from a luxury sedan –courtesy of a wheelbase lengthened by 110millimetres (now 2,920 millimetres) –await. The large tailgate, meanwhile, opens to reveal a boot offering 520 to 1,600 litres of load space and allowing extremely varied use.

New engine family: higher outputs, lower fuel consumption.

The new generation engine of the new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport offers compelling levels of sports performance, agility and economy. The new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport develops 135kW/184hp and has a fuel consumption combined: 6.1-5.8 l/100km; CO2 emissions combined: 139-132 g/km. With a classical rear-wheel drive, the four-cylinder petrol engine is taken from the newly developed, modular BMW EfficientDynamics engine family and enjoy the benefits of cutting-edge BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.

Considerable efficiency gains have been made with the new engine, despite its increased output. Further improved automatic transmission, the Auto Start Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, on-demand operation of ancillary units and the ECO PRO mode also help the new BMW320i Gran Turismo M Sport to set the benchmark for fuel economy and emissions.

The new BMW320i GranTurismo M Sport comes as standard with the eight-speed Steptronic Sport Transmission. Improvements in efficiency, an increase in ratio spread and a reduction in converter slip during the gear-change process bring about a three per cent drop in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. At the same time, customers can expect both driving comfort and shift comfort to be heading in the opposite direction.

 Available in M Sport as standard.

The new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport is fitted with an extensive selection of equipment items as standard, including: M Sport trim, automatic climate control, keyless engine ignition, Servotronic, six airbags, LED headlights for dipped and high beam, LED front fog lamps, a high-resolution colour screen with iDrive Controller, a hands-free facility for phone calls –including a USB port and Bluetooth audio streaming –and a leather multifunction steering wheel.

The new BMW 320i Gran Turismo M Sport is available for viewing at Performance Motors’ showroom from 9 November 2016.
