WHATIS IT? BMW3 Series GT WHYTHE FUSS? Because of a new body style for BMW’s foundation model
WHEN’S IT HERE? Early 2013 HOWMUCH? About $70,000 THE first really adventurous new take on theBMW3 Series is now being readied in Germany. This is the GT and, as the name suggests, it takes a similar approach to the 5 Series GT that’s already sold in Australia from just over $150,000.
The new 3 Series is expected to have a raised seating position and ride height like the 5 and will also have a smaller take on its two-tier rear hatch design, as design drives the shape and function. The 3 GT is expected to come with both rear and BMW’s all-wheel drive, with a range of petrol and diesel engines.
However, the car is too far away from its arrival in Aussie showrooms to be certain.
Even so, this Carparazzi picture confirms BMW’s plans — and points to a likely preview at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
