We’ve been hearing about a BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo getting the green light for production since July 2009. We now have some more details on the model courtesy of the popular BMW insider known as Scott27.
According to Scott27, the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo will skip the twin-trunk arrangement as found in the 5-Series Gran Turismo and just offer a simple hatchback. He says that BMW also plans on offering both, its new 2.0L 4-cylinder TwinPower turbo and a 4-cylinder turbo diesel in the lineup. The high-end models of the 3-Series Gran Turismo will offer 6-cylinder units and a hybrid drivetrain. BMW’s all-wheel-drive will also be available as an option.
Design wise the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo will look much like its big brother but will have a much lower and sleeker stance than the 5-Series Gran Turismo.
So what happens to the BMW 3-Series station-wagon? God knows.
