German BMW 3-Series GT is now clearer


The Bavarian carmaker BMW is keeping its 3-Series Gran Turismo in the dark. Apparently, it is not doing a very good job. Several spy photos were revealed and you can take a look in the gallery below. These reveal a lot of new information on the upcoming model as there is almost no camouflage. Soon, the vehicle will become the 3rd addition to the 6th generation of the 3-Series after the F30 sedan and Touring.



The engineers have adopted this new body style especially for the 3-Series. This is actually the first new style since the compact one developed in the 1990s. That one was a 3-door hatchback. The new BMW 3-Series GT is a 5-door model with a longer wheelbase in comparison with the sedan. This feature offers more passenger space. The 5-series GT had a very awkward shape and it was not that elegant either. The BMW 3-Series GT on the other hand is more elegant and it does not have the sporty looking appearance its rival, the Audi A5 Sportback has.



Even if the exterior of the car was modified, the interior remains similar to the interior of a 4-door model. This means, the power train options might also remain the same. The options are a 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol units capable of developing 240 horsepower or even a 3.0-liter turbocharged six with 300 horsepower as output. This is not all. There might also be a combination of inline-four and straight-six diesel units depending on the market, of course. Very soon, the Bavarian carmaker will offer a hybrid variant as well.



The BMW 3-Series GT will be available with all-wheel drive just like the sedan mentioned above. After the official launch that might take place at the Paris Motor Show in September, the carmaker plans to send it for sale sometime next year. carscoop.blogspot
