The new 2017 BMW 3 Series GT Facelift was first introduced to the public at the BMW International Open in Dusseldorf. Our photos show a BMW 330i GT model with the Luxury Line and painted in the Arctic Grey Brilliant Effect metallic. The car also features the 19-inch light-alloy wheels multi-spoke 674.

The new version of the Gran Turismo cuts a visibly sportier figure, and the three petrol and five diesel engines in the range offer noticeably higher output. All the engines are turbocharged and burn up to 14 per cent less fuel.

The design of the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo features standard-fitted LED headlights for dipped and high beam, and the LED front foglamps which lend the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo a more sporting appearance. The car has a visually broader stance on the road. And the combination of updated LED rear lights and more zestful lines brings extra brawn to the rear styling.

The interior of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo has an even more sophisticated feel, thanks to upgraded materials and accents. Extra chrome around the interior controls, and new decorative wood elements, colors and leather trim variants enhance the premium feel and look of the cabin.

The latest version of the BMW Navigation system Professional will now also be offered in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo – the first time a mid-size model has been available with the upgraded system. The most important menu items are now displayed in a clear, tile-based style, which makes operating the system even more intuitive.

    BMW continues to make the GT line look better but I would still prefer that they are the same dimensions as the standard sedan but with a hatch.

      I read somewhere that this is the Chinese market 3-series and that it has a longer wheelbase. I find the current 3 a bit small in the back seat so this seems perfect.

      • Spineless says:

        As a 3GT owner, I can tell you that the back seat is hugely spacious. It’s somewhere between 5 series and 7 series type room. It’s phenomenal on a road trip.

        • Zim says:

          Thanks for the response. It certainly looks larger than a standard 3 from the photos. Did you get it with the M-sport and how is the road feel?

          • Spineless says:

            We didn’t get our first 3GT with M-Sport, though we wish we had. The road feel is very good. It’s smooth and predictable. You aren’t going to get 3 series sedan type of handling because of the increased ground clearance, higher center of gravity and longer wheel base. The ride does stiffen up a bit when put into sport mode.

            In hindsight, we should have got ours with M-sport and the 3 liter engine, primarily because of the seating and lighting upgrades, and the obvious performance bump, though the 2 liter engine holds it’s own just fine. The stock halogen lights in our 2014 model, leave something to be desired when compared to the xenon or LED lights.

          • Zim says:

            My thoughts exactly – I’m in a 2015 328 xDrive. The standard headlights aren’t very good and the standard suspension isn’t stiff enough for my taste. Same as you, I want the 3-liter straight 6 for the greater power, especially in the larger GT. I guess it will all come down to the test drive for me but the 3 GT is on my short list.
