A test mule of the seventh-generation BMW 3-Series has been spotted testing in India. 

The camouflaged test car has L-shaped tail lights that have been a characteristic of BMW cars and is riding on multi-spoke alloy wheels. It has slimmer ORVMs and a shark fin antenna. The test apparatus at the rear suggests that it could be on an emissions testing run.

The BMW 3-Series (G20) is scheduled to be unveiled next month at the Paris Motor Show. Traditionally, BMW showcases high-performance variants of its cars at unveiling events. So, it is likely that the company will display the M340i, which is expected to be powered by a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder turbocharged engine. This engine is rumoured to produce 355 BHP and 502 Nm of torque and is likely to be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. 

In India, the new 3-Series is likely to be offered with petrol and diesel engine options. However, BMW has not yet made any announcement regarding the launch of the seventh-generation 3 Series in India.
