Bigger Bavarian.

By Mark Andrews

Talk Magazine. July 2013

Test drive and review of the special to China stretched (F35) version of the sixth generation (F35) BMW 3 series.

When Audi launched the A4L back in 2008 they struck a chord with the Chinese car buying public that wanted a mid-range luxury car with more space. Last year the Audi A4L sold 100,340 against 46,745 for the BMW 3 Series. But the new BMW 3 Series is fighting back and has the A4L squarely in its sights.

The new BMW 3 Series has an added 110mm on the wheelbase and overall length of the standard car. This translates into an extra 90mm of knee room for passengers in the back and makes it much larger than the old 3 Series, but still not quite as long as the A4L.
