BMW Cars at Auto Expo 2016 [New 7 Series, New X1, 3 Series Facelift]


Here’s a List of BMW Cars at Auto Expo 2016

Out of the big three in the luxury segment, BMW seems to have lost a bit of steam over the past couple of years. A major reason for luxury car buyers looking elsewhere could be an ageing lineup of cars. This year, BMW will be addressing this issue, to some extent, with newer generation models and facelifts. Some of these upcoming BMWs were on display at the Auto Expo this year. Here’s BMW’s lineup from the event with all the information on BMW Cars at Auto Expo 2016 here –
