BMW 3 Series GT (2013–)

Model History

February 2013

BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo launched

Benefiting from a longer and taller body, and an increased wheelbase, the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo offers increased interior space and load area volume from within a sporty, coupé-like form. At launch, three petrol engines and two diesel engines are available, with a choice of either six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearboxes.

Thanks to the adoption of the latest aerodynamic thinking, in conjunction with BMW's EfficientDynamics measures, including for the first time on a BMW an active rear spoiler, the new 3 Series Gran Turismo is superbly efficient without compromising any of its driver appeal. Despite its extended functionality, the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo typically carries a £1,300 price premium over the Touring model, starting with the 320i SE at £27,880 OTR.

Three new engines added to 3 Series GT range

The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo from March 2014 comes with the choice of three additional engines in the range; 330d, 330d xDrive and 335d xDrive.

The 330d engine utilises the BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line diesel engine and comes with Sport automatic transmission as standard. This new engine derivative is available in SE, Luxury or M Sport trim levels. With a choice of rear-wheel-drive or xDrive models to choose from, the 330d offers 258hp and 560Nm of torque, while emitting just 135g/km CO2while still returning 55.4mpg in rear-wheel-drive.

The BMW 335d xDrive also uses the BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line diesel engine, featuring common-rail direct injection and variable twin turbo technology, to deliver 313hp and 600Nm of torque. This performance combines with a suite of EfficientDynamics technologies to deliver CO2emissions of just 148g/km and a combined mpg figure of 50.4mpg.

The BMW 330d is available from £37,000 OTR for a 330d SE Gran Turismo, the 330d xDrive Gran Turismo starts at £38,515 OTR for an SE and the 335d xDrive Gran Turismo is available from £43,415 OTR for a Luxury model.

BMW 3 Series benefits from latest iDrive interface

Incorporated into the BMW Professional media system, the latest iDrive interface and enhanced connectivity provides a simpler menu navigation requiring fewer clicks to move between key sections such as map view, messages, entertainment and media and an increase in RAM to improve performance. This new system also allows the wireless integration of selected third party applications from a compatible mobile device.

In addition to the already standard Bluetooth connectivity this can be further enhanced by opting for the new Enhanced Bluetooth which alongside the upgraded BMW Professional Navigation system now includes Wireless Charging, WiFi Hotspot preparation and an additional USB socket. The new Enhanced Bluetooth with Wireless Charging is offered as standard on all BMW 6 Series and 7 Series models as well as the M3, M4, X5M and X6M.

Accessing a library of over 30 million tracks available to stream at any time as part of BMW Online Entertainment is now even easier thanks to the new Connected Music feature. This introduces the additional option, when listening to the radio, of recognising the track, artist or album. The listener can then search for and stream other music by that artist or music of the same genre.
