The Chinese like long-wheelbase versions of sedans, because execs like to be able to stretch out while the drivers ferry them about - and the country, if you didn't know, has a whole lot of executives. Audi
sells a stretched A4
there, and BMW
evidently feels the market looks robust enough for a long-wheelbase 3 Series Li. Why not just get a 5 Series
, you ask? Because the man says he wants a longer 3 Series
, and he's got cash...
Reports indicate this is a China-only model that will bow at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show
. Its platform, though, is also expected to underpin the 3 Series GT
. That car might come to America, and if so it will offer some extra rear legroom for us and certainly be just as interesting to look at as this long-wheelbase model.
