Production of the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo comes to an end
Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013, the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo was the little sister of the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo. Like the latter, the 3-Series GT offered a bodywork halfway between a sedan and a station wagon. Like the 5-Series GT as well, it was not a success and the 3-Series GT is no longer produced.
This decision comes shortly after the company's management stated that there was still enough demand for the model to justify its presence in the lineup. Unfortunately, the profitability of the 3-Series Gran Turismo was no longer considered sufficient due to competition from SUVs.
In fact, the 3-Series Gran Turismo is already no longer available in many configurators from the brand. On BMW's English and French configurators, the 3-Series Gran Turismo has simply disappeared and left its place to the new generation 3-Series. In other countries such as Germany, on the other hand, the 3-Series Gran Turismo resists, but not for very long ...
The 3-Series Gran Turismo had almost everything to please. It was available with four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. It was also available with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. A new generation is not planned at all because BMW now considers that the new 3-Series in sedan and station wagon bodies meets all demands.
