Later this month the 2009 model upgrade of the BMW 3 Series will roll out across the country’s showrooms. The range will start with the 320i at $54,100 and, M3 aside, tops out with the 335i at $111,700.
As to be expected the options and standard equipment levels have also been given a tweak, along with the exterior styling. This includes standard leather seats, Park Distance Control, fog lights and rain sensors across the range.
Over 25,000 E90 3 Series models have been sold in Australia to date and the top brass seem to think they are on a winner, â€œThe BMW 3 Series is the most successful luxury compact sport sedan in the world and we have further improved the offering to the market with the new cars,â€ said Tom Noble, General Manager, Marketing, BMW Group Australia. “The range is extremely well equipped from the start, at a very attractive price point below the Luxury Car Tax threshold.”
Post increases to the Luxury Car Tax manufacturers are quick to grab a marketing edge and BMW is no different, with the 320d being exempt thanks to the car’s 6.0l/100km fuel consumption figures.
