For those who love the Bmw 3-Series we have great news as the Bavarian manufacturer just announced at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show that it will introduce the entry-level 320i also in the United States. Set to hit the dealerships this spring, the new Bmw 320i will cost $34,445 (including $895 for destination). As expected, under the hood we find a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter TwinPower turbo engine delivering 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque.

With these numbers, the 320i is able to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 7.1 seconds, while top speed is limited at 130 mph or 210 km/h. Mated to a standard 6-speed manual transmission, the 320i is able to deliver a fuel efficiency of 22 MPG City/34 MPG Highway, while the model equipped with an optional 8-speed automatic transmission are 23 MPG City / 33 MPG Highway.

The 320i xDrive or the all-wheel drive model is expected to achieve 22 MPG City / 33 MPG Highway. Although it is an entry-level model, the 320i will feature most of the ConnectedDrive elements seen on the 328i and the 335i models. Moreover, the 320i Sedan will be available with the Cold Weather Package, Premium Package, Driver Assistance Package and Lightning Package.

The full complement of exterior colors from the 328i Sedan is available, with exception of Estoril Blue Metallic, which requires M Sport Line (unavailable on 320i). Moreover, the Sport Package is available for both 320i and 320i xDrive. For the 320i the package includes 18-inch light-alloy wheels with summer tires and increased top speed limiter, sport seats, M sport suspension, M steering wheel and anthracite headliner.
