The BMW 320 was produced between 1937 and 1938 with approximately 4,240 examples made, of which 1,835 were cabriolets. Power was from a BMW straight-six which had a 1971cc displacement size and offered 45 horsepower. The engine was mounted to a four-speed gearbox.

The BMW 320 replaced the 319-based BMW 329 and was available as either a 2-door saloon or a cabriolet. It was built on a shortened BMW 326 fame and powered by a 326 engine with a single carburetor. The suspension was sourced from the 329, consisting of an independent front suspension setup with a high-mounted transverse leaf spring acting as upper control arms. In the back was a conventional live axle on semi-elliptic springs.

The BMW 320 was smaller, less expensive, and lighter than its predecessor. It offered easy handling, a fine finish, and a good power-to-weight ratio.
