Report: BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo will be badged 4-Series

BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo

Ever since the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo made its debut, we’ve been hearing rumors about a 3-Series sibling for the half-sedan, half-minivan model. Up until today, the model has been known as the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo; however, new reports suggest that the model will carry the BMW 4-Series badge.

Based on the next-generation 3-Series, the BMW 4-Series will sit between the new 3-Series and the 5-Series.

The BMW 4-Series will complement the 3-Series range but will take on the likes of the Audi A5 Sportback.

Sources say that BMW won’t released the 4-Series until after the next-generation 3-Series is launched next year. With that in mind, you can expect to see the BMW 4-Series on the roads sometime in 2013-2014.
