BMW Releases 3-Series Gran Turismo Video

BMW have recently uploaded a brand new video which features the recently announced 3Series Gran Turismo on their official YouTube channel. 

After its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show people have been itching to know more about the sporty new saloon. BMW described the 3 Series Gran Turismo as having the “dynamic, sporting” qualities of the saloon, with the “practicality and versatility” of the Touring.

Carfresh.net give you the technical low down:

It is 200 mm longer in total than the 3-Series Touring, comes with a 110 mm longer wheelbase and stands 81 mm taller. As a result, the front and rear passengers all benefit from a seating position raised by 59 mm, while the load area holds 520-liter of luggage which can be expanded to 1600-liter when the rear seats are folded down.


Under the hood, five different engines are available, including a 143 hp 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel, a 184 hp 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel, a 184 hp 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder, a 245 hp 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder and a 306 hp 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six cylinder.

Now sit back, relax and watch German engineering at its finest:


The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will go on sale in the UK on 15 June and the US release will be late 2013.
