The German based automaker BMW has recently announced the pricing range for its new 3-Series generation in Australia.

According to the car manufacturer, the new generation of the BMW 3-Series will be launched in Australia in three versions, the 320d, the 328i and the 335i. BMW says that the entry-level 320d has a starting price of 60.900 AUD, coming with the 2.0 liter diesel unit which is burning an average of 4.5 liters of fuel every 100 km, while developing a total output of 135 kW and having a peak torque of 380 Nm. The mid-level BMW 328i can be bought for 66.900 AUD and it’s coming with 180 kW and 350 Nm of torque. The fuel consumption for the new 328i has been reduced by 30 percent to an average of 6.3 liters / 100 km.

Last but not least, BMW is offering the 335i as the top of the line in Australia, at least until the new generation of the M3 will make its way onto the market. The BMW 335i can be bought for 91.900 AUD, which is actually 15 percent less than the model it replaces. The BMW 335i is coming with 225 kW and a peak torque of 400 Nm.
