After we saw spy shots
of a long-wheelbase BMW 3 Series
for China, we knew it one was coming. Now BMW
has confirmed that the car will indeed bow at Auto China 2012, otherwise known as the 2012 Beijing Motor Show
, which kicks off on April 23.
The LWB 3 Series has an 4.3-inch wheelbase stretch and will be offered with three powertrains. The smallest is the 184-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that's not available in North America. The 240-hp, 2.8-liter sold here in the 328i will also be available, as will the 300-hp, turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder. The LWB 3 Series models will carry the "Li" suffix like we've seen on the 7 Series
, so the three models will be designated 320Li, 328Li and 335Li.
