3 Series GT in Motion



Say what you will about the 3 Series Gran Turismo, you can't help but find it attractive in this well put together BMW product spotlight.

The 3 Series GT offers a combination of SUV driving position with sport wagon handling. I like to refer to it as a 3 Series +, it is a little bigger then the 3 series and provides a little more in terms of passenger space and functionality. The styling is not for everyone, but it is distinctly BMW.

The 3 series GT arrives in dealerships this summer in 328i and 335i variants but only in all wheel drive and automatic. We've seen some pricing already but stay tuned for the complete pricing details in the next month or so.

Same here. This car has the same problem for me that the Pamamera has.

It's like a gorgeous woman from the front, but when she turns around, she's got a terrible misshapen ass.

I'd rather have the 3-series touring all day long.

It's really long and automatic only. Otherwise it's not a bad idea. A 335xi GT manual could actually be kind of appealing, but it would never come to The States in that spec.

Great video but GT car itself , not sure about.
Whats the advantage of the GT when you can get a Sportswagon, X3, X1 or 3-series sedan?

GT is a hatch.

Isn't the X1 and X3 also hatch-like?

3GT has lower center of gravity & certainly roomier than x1. BTW, 3GT also has more front & rear leg room as well as longer than both x1 & x3.

[to anyone, not just iamthewalrus]
But am I correct in thinking a 335xi auto will be coming? I was counting on that it would in trying to talk myself into one instead of an F31 in 328xi garb only. ?
