At 4,824 millimeters in length, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is around 200 millimeters longer than the other members of the BMW 3 Series family. The design of the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, which has been sculpted to visibly greater dynamic effect at both the front and rear, heightens the impression of class, thanks to new, standard-fitted LED headlights, LED front foglights and updated LED rear lights.
The interior of the 3 Series Gran Turismo has an even more sophisticated feel, thanks to upgraded materials and accents. Extra chrome around the interior controls, and new decorative wood elements, colors and leather trim variants take perceived quality to another new level, while the interior’s haptic and ergonomic attributes have also been further enhanced. Sportiness coupled with the elegance of a coupe, the comfort and convenience of four doors, a seating position raised by 59 millimeters with all-round visibility, and a generous feeling of space have always been key reasons to purchase a BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo. The space argument is particularly persuasive in the rear compartment, where three full-size seats and legroom more familiar from a luxury sedan, courtesy of a wheelbase lengthened by 110 mm (now 2,920 mm). The large tailgate, meanwhile, opens to reveal a boot offering 520 to 1,600 liters of load space. The other highlight on the Gran Turismo version includes the latest version of the BMW Navigation system Professional.
The new generation of engines available for the 3 Series Gran Turismo offer compelling levels of sports performance, agility and economy. The range consists of three new petrol units developing 135 kW/184 hp to 240 kW/326 hp and five diesel variants producing 110 kW/150 hp to 230 kW/313 hp, with classical rear-wheel drive or xDrive all-wheel drive, with manual or Steptronic automatic transmission. An all-new addition introduced to the diesel ranks is none other than the 325d Gran Turismo. Further improved manual and automatic transmissions, the Auto Start Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, on-demand operation of ancillary units and the ECO Pro mode help the new 3 Series Gran Turismo to set the benchmark for fuel economy and emissions.
The BMW 320i Gran Turismo, 318d 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. All other engine variants feature the automatic as standard. And that means three more variants of the car (the BMW 330i Gran Turismo, BMW 340i Gran Turismo and BMW 325d Gran Turismo) are offered exclusively with the efficient Steptronic unit than was the case with the outgoing model. All petrol-engined 3 Series Gran Turismo variants and the diesel-powered BMW 320d Gran Turismo and BMW 330d Gran Turismo can be specified as an option with BMW xDrive. The BMW 335d xDrive Gran Turismo has this all-wheel-drive technology as standard. A total of 18 engine, transmission and drive configurations are therefore available for the 3 Series Gran Turismo range.
The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is offered in three trimmings: Sport Line, Luxury Line and M Sport. The Estoril Blue color shade is available exclusively for M Sport models.
