The new addition to the exudes aesthetic and emotional boasts a distinctive presence on the and offers similarly pronounced pleasure.

Among the eye-catching of the new BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo are a formed front end, an stretched silhouette with roofline, frameless side and a flowing rear end with load aperture. Here, an rear spoiler – the of its type on a BMW – provides lightness as well as reducing at touring speeds. The clear in length over the Sedan and benefits not only the car’s silhouette, but also the amount of available on board.

Ease of a raised seating position an outstanding view out to all sides and expanses of space around passenger provide an instant factor. The Gran Turismo more room in the rear in particular. Indeed, passengers in the full-size rear seats encounter legroom normally found in luxury-class cars.

Powertrain and chassis: pleasure, dynamic excellence and over long and short

Customers can choose from a of five torquey, refined and engines from the launch of the new BMW Gran Turismo, all of which with the latest BMW TwinPower technology. The range-topping six-cylinder engine under the bonnet of the BMW Gran Turismo is joined by the four-cylinder petrol units in the BMW Gran Turismo and BMW 320i Turismo.

The two 2.0-litre diesel powering the BMW 320d Gran and BMW 318d Gran Turismo off the line-up at launch. The power is to the rear wheels via a six-speed gearbox as standard, although BMW offers an eight-speed automatic as an for all engine variants. Both link up with the fuel-saving Start-Stop function.

BMW 335i Turismo: six-cylinder petrol with muscular power imposing torque and outstanding

Aficionados of large six-cylinder are in for a treat with the new BMW 335i Turismo. The 3.0-litre in-line will win the hearts of sporty with its supreme power ravenous appetite for revs and refinement.

BMW 320i Turismo: entry-level petrol packs a punch.

The BMW 320i Turismo comes with a based on the same ultra-low-friction cc core engine as the BMW 328i, differing output ratings principally through modifications to the and turbocharging technology. In the new BMW 320i Turismo, the four-cylinder petrol develops 135 kW/184 hp at 5,000 rpm and up peak torque of 270 Nm (199 at a meagre 1,250 rpm.

with the six-speed manual the 320i needs only 7.9 to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) rest, but has a very understated for petrol. Impressive average economy in the EU test cycle of 6.6 per 100 kilometres (42.8 mpg imp) and CO2 of 153 grams per kilometre are improved further when the eight-speed gearbox is specified; then, falls to 6.2 litres per 100 km (45.5 mpg with CO2emissions dropping to 145

A of technical innovations and the unusually internal efficiency of the eight-speed ensure that powerful and sharp mid-range sprints can be without any notable increase in consumption. Performance-minded drivers therefore be in for a treat, especially they can also choose to gear manually and so take on a more active role in the experience.

All in all, then, the of the new BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo can be in relaxed or seriously focused With its harmonious gear spacing, the BMW 3-Series Gran offers refined and powerful but can also be driven at a laid-back and with an eye on fuel economy at low speeds.

A sports automatic of the new eight-speed gearbox is available as an option for the new BMW 3-Series Gran offering even sharper dynamics and manual gear using steering wheel-mounted paddles.

Sophisticated suspension technology: BMW 3-Series handling, impressive stability and increased long-distance

Driving dynamics have been one of the stand-out qualities of the BMW range. Playing a key role is carefully honed suspension that features a large of light-alloy components and perfectly the winning formula of a longitudinally engine, rear-wheel drive, steer-free Electric Power finely-balanced axle load (50:50) and a torsionally stiff body.

With the new BMW 3-Series Turismo the engineers have in achieving both outstanding properties and a high degree of and precision. The overall character of the has been shifted slightly directional stability and long-distance The key factors here are its longer wheelbase (+ 110 mm over the 3-Series and standard specification, including wheels (Sedan and Touring:

All of which points to the new BMW 3-Series Turismo’s focus on enhanced comfort combined with sporting dynamics.

Double-joint tie bar axle with spring and anti-roll bar.

The front of the new BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo is from the 3-Series Sedan and Touring. The wheel suspension maximum stiffness with weight, while aluminium struts, wishbones and swivel make for a significant reduction in masses. In addition, the double-joint has been set up to optimum effect, to the absence of torque steer.

beneficiary of this is the BMW 3-Series Turismo’s electromechanical steering which is low in weight and helps fuel consumption.
