BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo gets the green light

BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo

At first there was doubt whether or not BMW will build a 3-Series Gran Turismo, following in the footsteps of the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo. However, it is now been confirmed that a 3-Series GT model will be moving forward and will sit between the 3-Series lineup and the X1.

“We haven’t cancelled the crossover of the 3-Series, as it is considered a volume builder with which we can earn good money,” BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer said.

The BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo will be heavily inspired by the 5-Series Gran Turismo and will feature the same split tailgate, roomy interior and raised driving position.

Engine choices are likely to be taken from the rest of the BMW 3-Series lineup.
