Специально для рынка Китая, который является одним из важнейших для BMW, марка выпустила удлинённый вариант нового седана 3 Series с индексом Li.

BMW потребовалось всего несколько месяцев, чтобы превратить базовый седан 3 Series нового поколения в удлинённую версию с индексом Li. Такой автомобиль будет доступен только в Китае. Новинка длиннее 5 Series (E39) и даже 5 Series (E60)!

В Европе можно купить седан длиной 4,71 метра, а вот китайский вариант уже длиной 4,83 метра. Прибавка в 12 сантиметров по большей части пришлась на колёсную базу — 2,96 метра — что увеличило пространство в салоне для пассажиров сзади.

Седан BMW 325 Li M Sport по дизайну ничем не отличается от базовой версии. Технический удлинённая модификация также не отличается от 184-сильного 320i с 2-литровым турбомотором.
