BMW 320: The Engine Options
BMW 320 was a saloon manufactured way long back in the year 1937. It had replaced the BMW 329 based on the 319. And, all these models are a part of BMW 3 series line-up, which is one of the top-selling range of the German automotive giant.
BMW 320 was completely based on BMW 326’s shortened chassis. The 320 was powered by a 326 engine, and the suspension was carried over from 329. It had got an independent front suspension that came with transverse leaf spring, acting as upper control arms.
Later on, 320 got replaced by BMW 321 in the year 1938. In the modern 3 series line-up, BMW 320d is one of the hot-selling machines in US, European as well as Asian markets.
