BMW 3 Series GT Facelift

Let’s have a quick look at a few points as to what they have done in terms of upgrades for the exterior as well as the interiors.

  • Although, the upgrades on the exterior front are quite diminutive, they still have quite an impact and make the 3GT look way more striking than previously.
  • The LED headlamps which also get LED daytime running lights is one significant update for the facelift.
  • A new tech for the headlamps has been introduced which has a camera which based on an adaptive assistance systems helps light up the road in an improved method and automatically deflects certain elements in the headlamps when it encounters approaching traffic.
  • Two features which remain As Is on the 3GT are the electronically deployable spoiler on the boot lid and the frameless door design.
  • Needless to say, the kidney grille remains unchanged.
  • In spite of featuring a large notchback boot that opens, the cabin is still mighty spacious.
  • There is ample space for passengers in the rear which can be enjoyed by sitting there rather than driving this machine.
  • BMW iDrive system is present and this takes care of everything from navigation to audio.
  • The highlight is a 520L boot, not just that when the rear seats are folded the total cargo spaces adds up to 1600L.
  • It is quite evident, that the automaker has not given much attention to updating features but wants to enhance experiences of users’ instead. Sticking to the same-old recipe makes for a good fitment in this case.
  • It’s a series which is familiar and the layout too is something which the Beemer fans will be used to.
  • From other luxury manufacturers, there is no such competition but it does rival against predominant luxury sedans like the Jaguar XF, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class.
  • With the price offering of the 3GT, it is a thought-provoking proposal for anyone who is looking for a spacious, comfortable chauffeur driven vehicle. 

It’s all About the Engine:

The 3GT comes in petrol and diesel engine options. The diesel engine is a 2.0L one which produces a power of 190BHP and a torque of 400Nm. This engine is linked to an automatic gearbox and a RWD system. The petrol version (330i) is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged engine which churns out 252BHP and a torque of 350Nm. It can cover 0-100 in 6.1 seconds. Similar to the previous 3GT this one too will be comfortable and has an improved ride quality and handling. Both engines are linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox and have a RWD or rear wheel drive system.
