BMW 3 Series GT (2016) Specs & Price

P90220423 HighRes Bmw 3 Series Gran Tu

BMW has released details and images of its new 3 Series Gran Turismo. Stylistically, it still represents a tantalising melange of coupe, sedan and station wagon cues.

Much like the facelift of the F30-generation BMW 3 Series, the GT variant features only minor changes to its exterior appearance. Most of the enhancements come in the form of technology updates and the inclusion of new engines from BMW.

Longer 3 GT

Length-wise the facelifted GT is 200 mm longer than before thanks, in part, to its wheelbase being lengthened by 110 mm. There is more legroom for rear occupants and the luggage bay is claimed to hold 520 litres with the rear seats up and 1 600 litres with the seatback folded down. 

LED headlamps are now fitted as standard on the Gran Turismo, LED foglights are available and rear LED lights top off the exterior changes.

Updates to the interior include the latest version of BMW’s navigation system. Wireless charging for your Smartphone is also available.

New engines

The range of new engines for the South African market consists of two all-new petrol units developing 135 kW and 240 kW and one turbodiesel engine producing 140 kW. The focus of the new engines was reduced fuel consumption and in the 320d GT, there is said to be a 13.8% improvement in efficiency. The 320i Gran Turismo and 320d Gran Turismo come as standard with the six-speed manual gearbox, but can also be ordered with the eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission as an option. The BMW 340i Gran Turismo exclusively features the Steptronic automatic as standard.
