When BMW launched mildly facelifted models of the 3 Series sedan and the Touring (estate) earlier this year, there was no word on the Gran Turismo model. Now though, we have these spy shots of the 3 Series GT proving that BMW is updating the controversially styled Gran Turismo model as well.
BMW is said to be focusing mainly on the technology and some subtle design upgrades with this new model. Up front, the GT will borrow the regular sedan’s fascia, while the taillights will be redesigned with the help of LEDs.
Inside, the new 3 Series Gran Turismo will feature BMW’s iDrive infotainment system with the touch-sensitive controller. Variant wise, the old 328i and 335i models will be replaced by new 330i and 340i variants, while the diesel engine powered 325d will get a power hike from 218bhp to 231bhp.
BMW is expected to showcase the 3 Series Gran Turismo facelift at next year’s Geneva Motor Show in March. The car will go on sale globally soon after.
