Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive launches the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo in Kuwait
Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotove, the official BMW Group importer in Kuwait, has launched the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo across their showrooms in Kuwait.
On a global level, the BMW 3 Series continues to be BMW Group’s best-selling model series consistently accounting for more than a quarter of the company’s global sales. In 2012, every fourth BMW sold was a 3 Series. The success story of the BMW 3 Series over the past 37 years has made it the world’s best-selling premium car.
The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo adds an innovative new concept to the already successful 3 Series line-up. It combines a unique combination of a sporty and elegant coupé design with excellent versatility, increase in space and hallmark BMW driving enjoyment.
Inside the cockpit, this slick new model featuring four doors with frameless windows and a coupé-style downward-sloping roofline making it immediately recognisable as a member of the latest generation BMW 3 Series line-up. Generous interior dimensions allow the passengers in every seat to sit back and enjoy an impressive feeling of space and unbeatable freedom of movement significantly more comfortable.
The cocooning nature of the interior, complemented by its design forms, colour scheme and materials, creates a lounge-style ambience which allows passengers to enjoy short trips and long journeys alike in relaxed comfort.
The rear of the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is highlighted by horizontal surfaces and lines emphasising muscular width and unshakable road holding. Another highlight is the rear active spoiler – the first of its type on a BMW – which automatically extends at speeds over 110 km/h and retracts at speeds under 70 km/h. It can also be manually controlled from the driver side window switch control. When deployed at high speeds, the spoiler increases downforce on the rear axle and ensures perfect stability when driving fast.
Commenting on the launch of the new vehicle, Mr. Yousef Al Qatami, General Manager, Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive, said: “Combining the perfect blend of practicality, increased space and driving comfort, the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is an impressive vehicle. Building on the success of the BMW Group’s best selling 3 Series model, we are confident that this model will appeal to our discerning customer base here in Kuwait. The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will add to our already impressive BMW portfolio and enable us to expand our BMW product in Kuwait.”
An extensive selection of driver assistance systems and mobility solutions, offered under the BMW ConnectedDrive programme, allows the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo to set the benchmark in its segment in terms of safety, convenience and in-car infotainment.
The all-New BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will debut with the 320i engine variant, which features the BMW 2.0-litre four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine generating 135 kW/184 hp and accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds. The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will also be available with the 328i engine featuring the BMW 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine generating 135 kW/245 hp.
All BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo vehicles from Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive feature innovative communication features via BMW ConnectedDrive. This includes a host of new BMW Apps including Facebook, Twitter, Web Radio and Wiki Local; all of which can be accessed via an Apple iPhone as well as the all new BMW Remote App which will be compatible on both iPhone and Android platforms.
BMW in Kuwait is the only automobile manufacturer to offer these technological innovations to the Kuwaiti market.
