BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo

  • tickGood rear space
  • tickHigh-speed refinement

BMW 3 Series GT Hatchback (2013 - 2017)

The BMW 3 Series GT is the latest model to expand the repertoire of the UK’s benchmark small executive car. Sitting at the pricier end of the 3 Series range, it attempts to combine the prestige of the saloon and practicality of the Touring with the rear space of a 5 Series to offer more emphasis on comfort, luxury and refinement.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Up front is typically beautiful 3 Series fare with soft-touch 3D layered dashboard, suspended iDrive infotainment screen and figure-hugging leather seats. However, step into the back and even the most faithful of 3 custodians will be in unfamiliar territory. That elongated roofline may be ungainly from the outside, but the combination of a taller glasshouse and extended wheelbase (there is 8cm more legroom in here than a 3 Series Touring) has transformed the rear cabin into a cosseting, luxurious 5 Series-rivaling environment where passengers in the back are no longer forced to identify each other’s brand of deodorant.
