Drivers of a BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo are considered to be individualists who know exactly what they want. Their wish list includes the spaciousness of an estate, the commanding driving position of an SUV and the graceful lines of a coupe. Not only does the BMW 3 Series GT serve up an enticing blend of all of the above, it goes about it in a very original way and promises a highly individual appearance. The latest version of the BMW 3 Series GT also benefits from a host of advances and technical updates. These include the user interface for the Navigation System Professional as already seen in the new BMW 7 Series, with its effortless operation and optimised menus.

The optional M Sport model variant with its Estoril Blue paint finish and large 19-inch wheels really brings the sporty ambitions of the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo to the fore.

Connectivity has likewise been enhanced: an inductive tray in the centre console allows smartphones to be charged wirelessly and connected to the external aerial. This equipment feature also includes a Wi-Fi hotspot that provides high-speed internet access for up to eight mobile devices, as well as a second USB port in the centre console. The engine and transmission line-up comprises a total of 18 variants, which all strike a great balance between high power and low emissions. The 3 Series Gran Turismo can also lay claim to class-beating fuel efficiency.
