I do not want to fire the fallen tree and I do not want to offend anyone, but the acronym GT in BMW has never been very successful visually speaking. I do not know what you would think but the 5 Series GT was unorthodox in aesthetic terms. Yes, okay, I am aware that they are very practical cars, with a large access door to the trunk, something more generous battle and everything you want, but aesthetics sends…
After the Series 5 GT arrived the Series 3 GT, a model that was placed between what was being the body saloon and the touring. If you wanted something more pulling a saloon but that was more practical than a Touring you had to go to a GT and the truth is that in versatility and space, had no rival in the Series 3. Interestingly, a Series 3 GT has more space in the rear seats than a Series 5.
The strongest markets are China, Germany and the USA. UU. In Germany, almost one of every six BMW 3 Series vehicles sold is a Gran Turismo.
To focus on, compared to the BMW 3 Series Touring, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is 200 millimeters longer and its wheelbase is 110 millimeters greater. In addition, the model is 81 millimeters higher. These dimensions make the BMW 3 Series GT the most livable Series 3 without giving up a standard aesthetic. Under the large rear hood is the boot, which offers a volume of between 520 and 1600 liters and great variability.
As if it were a BMW 3 Series “limousine”, this new length has repercussions in a greater space for the rear seats that now is huge. In addition, the large electric tailgate similar to that of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé makes the model the most versatile Series 3 today.
