The all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo adds an innovative new concept to the BMW 3 Series line-up.
The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is, first and foremost, a driver’s car which combines dynamics with luxury seating for four and generous and flexible luggage capacity. The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will arrive in the US, as both a 328i and a 335i, in the summer of 2013 as a 2014 model.
Typical BMW proportions, four doors with frameless windows, coupe-like profile, sloping roofline and large tailgate define the exterior of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo. An active rear spoiler – the first on a BMW – reduces lift at highway speeds. The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is 7.9 inches (200mm) longer than the 3 Series Sports wagon, offers a 4.3 inch (110mm) longer wheelbase and stands 3.2 inches (81mm) taller. The use of proportions, surfaces and lines ensures that the 3 Series Gran Turismo is immediately recognizable as a BMW 3 Series.
Generous interior dimensions allow passengers in every seat of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo to enjoy freedom of movement. The front and rear passengers all benefit from a seating position that is 2.3 inches (59 mm) higher than the sedans, which provides increased visibility and makes entry and exit more comfortable. The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo also offers extra headroom. The increase in space will be appreciated by rear seat passengers, with 2.8 inches (70mm) of additional legroom over the Sedan and Sports Wagon.
