2013 BMW 320i at Sharpe BMW


The BMW 3 Series is one of the most well-rounded and highest-regarded cars in the automotive industry, and it has been that way for quite a while. Brand new to the 3 Series lineup, however, is the 2013 BMW 320i, a budget-conscious 3 Series car that has already made a number of Sharpe BMW customers very happy. Obviously, not all Grand Rapids customers visit BMW dealerships looking to pinch pennies, but for those that want all the general trappings of a great BMW car—style, power, reliability, luxury—while keeping their bank accounts in good standing, the 320i offers plenty of great features for a really excellent price.


In terms of drivetrain, the 2013 BMW 320i runs on a great little turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that pushes out 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Any Michigan BMW dealer can tell you that that's respectable power for an entry-level luxury sedan, but the fact that it also can get up to 36 MPG on the highway makes it exciting from an efficiency standpoint, too. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but the available 320i xDrive model puts all-wheel drive on the table, as well.


As far as features are concerned, some would expect the 320i to be stripped down to the bare minimum because of its affordability, but that's absolutely not the case. Visit your friendly neighborhood BMW dealership in Grand Rapids, and you'll see that this car features 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights and windshield wipers, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, leatherette premium vinyl upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity and the excellent iDrive infotainment system, among many other things. In other words, it's absolutely possible to spend money reasonably and still get a ton of luxury.


Another thing Michigan drivers get when they buy a new 320i is excellent standard safety features. Every 3 Series vehicle comes standard equipped with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, and many, many airbags spread out all over the cabin of the vehicle. The 2013 BMW 320i also features BMW Assist, an emergency telematics system that includes things like automatic crash notification, stolen vehicle recovery and on-demand roadside assistance. With great safety features like these, the 2013 BMW 320i was given a top five-star safety rating from the federal government and was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick for doing so well on those crash tests.  Any BMW dealer will tell you: this is one of the safest automobiles we sell.


With such great safety features, a lavish interior, extensive amenities and a peppy yet efficient engine, it's no wonder that the 2013 BMW 320i has quickly become the darling of the BMW 3 Series family. BMW dealerships don't only cater to budget-conscious consumers here in Grand Rapids, but for those that do want to watch their ledgers, the 320i is a great way to get many of the things we love in the 3 Series for a significantly lower price than some of its bigger brothers and sisters. Please pay us a visit sometime soon to take one for a test drive, and see for yourself why this is one of the most beloved automobiles of all time.
