2012/13 BMW 3 series GT


Still, just another illustration.
But there won't be many surprises when the new 3 series comes out early next year.
And the GT will just be a hatchback version of the sedan.

It might work better than the 5 series GT which looks too heavy and bloated.
Will compete in Europe with the Audi A5 Sportback. Which does look great.

And with the 5 series GT flop in the US, we might not even see it here at all...

This is probably where the GT hatch should have been applied, instead of the 5-series. Looks good. I hope it gets made.

It is a huge improvement over the 5 series GT in simply that I do not find it repulsive.

I think BMW should do well with this one.

BMW needs to stop the madnesss. I am one who appreciates hatch vehicles, but BMW sure makes ugly one.

It looks strange whereas Audi's hatch looks half decent.

This looks much better than the sedan. It gives it substance. It does not look like a Civic on steroids.

I like it - this might be the first BMW I would consider buying.

Basing the 3-GT on the 3-sedan makes much more sense than basing the 5-GT on the 7-sedan.. should keep the prices down too. The old adage that US buyers don't buy hatchbacks seems to be changing, but they sure as hell don't want to pay a premium for one.

BMW just made a statement saying the 5 series gt was a mistake why would they produce this?
