All-new G20 BMW 330i price revealed for Singapore with two variants, Luxury and M Sport

SINGAPORE
BMW has revealed the pricing for the all-new version of its popular 3 Series executive sedan here.

Currently for Singapore there is one engine variant, the 330i, and two trim levels, M Sport (S$231,888 with COE) and Luxury ($216,888 with COE).

That makes it very price competitive against its main rivals, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4.

The C-Class starts from $184k with COE, while the more expensive (recently reviewed) C 200 goes for $201,888 with COE, but both cars are less powerful than the 330i.

The Audi A4 2.0 with 190hp starts at $176,846 with COE, but like the C 180 is more of a rival for a forthcoming 318i or 320i. The A4 2.0 quattro (with 252hp) is a direct rival to the 330i, at $232,680 with COE.

To get up to speed on what’s new about the G20, read our news coverage of the car’s international debut, as well as our test drive of the 330i M Sport, and our video review.

Both have the same 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine with 258hp and 400Nm of torque. 0-100km/h is 5.8 seconds with a 250km/h top speed. Fuel consumption is 6.4L/100km with a CO2 emissions rating of 147g/km, and a VES rating of B (neutral).

The standard equipment list for both cars looks quite generous, as befitting the mid-upper range 330i. A less powerful 320i with the same engine and a M340i (we tested the prototype here) are both expected to join the 3 Series range later this year or in early 2020.

Standard equipment on both cars includes:

– New BMW OS 7.0 (replaces iDrive) with touchscreen, navigation
– BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant – the most advanced voice control system we’ve tested in a car, we demo it in our video review above
– BMW ConnectedDrive (concierge, auto emergency call, traffic info etc)
– Active safety with BMW Driving Assistant (lane departure warning, autonomous front brake, speed limit info and more)
– ‘Vernasca’ leather seats
– Parking Assistant, with new Reverse Assistant that records your last few driving inputs to automatically back out of lots
– Wireless smartphone charging
