2014 BMW 3 Series GT | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the BMW 3 Series GT. 2014 BMW 3 Series GT is one brand new car from BMW that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 BMW 3 Series GT.
The 2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is being launched to a pretty cynical automotive press brigade. You know it. We know it. Heck, even BMW knows it. We’ve just returned from driving it on the rather unforgiving and sometimes nasty roads of Sicily, and even before we got behind the wheel, many of our media colleagues were busying themselves doubting the 3 GT’s very raison d’être. So, despite the always excellent Sicilian hospitality, the day’s atmosphere was kind of fragile.

2014 BMW 3 Series GT Interior :
The GT is 7.9-inches longer and 3.2-inches taller than the new 3 Series Sports Wagon and carryover sedan. More importantly, its wheelbase is around 4.3-inches longer than its more traditional siblings. In fact, the GT shares the same extended platform found under the stretched 3 Series limousine made exclusively for China. The benefits include 2.3 inches of increased rear-seat room than in the Sports Wagon, which makes the GT a more comfortable and versatile package.
Design-wise, the 3 GT is easily recognizable as a 3 Series variant from the front, and at first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking not much was changed in the process. However, the Gran Turismo has its own unique touches, like functional (although questionably styled) fender-mounted vents that allow the larger vehicle to be more aerodynamically efficient. BMW’s first electrically adjustable rear spoiler does the same job, deploying at 70 mph to keep things more stable at speed. Drop back below 45 mph and it’ll retract automatically.
The new 3-Series GT seems to be specially designed for those who need increased cargo room: it offers a cargo capacity of 520 liters (18.36 cubic-feet), plus a 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat bench with folding head restraints and tilt-adjustable backrests that will offer the possibility to further increase the trunk space.
2014 BMW 3 Series GT Exterior :
The cargo area is obviously larger than the sedan’s, but more surprisingly, it beats the Sport Wagon’s too. The GT offers 18.4 cu-ft that’s one more than the wagon and easily expands to 56.5 cu-ft with the 40/20/40-split rear seats folded. The rear chairs easily tumble forward with one pull of a trunk-mounted handle, which is a simple, mechanical action without the risk of motors or actuators burning out over time.
Like every non-M BMW, the GT doesn’t carry a spare tire. But the area under the cargo floor features a couple separated compartments and room to stow the two-piece removable cargo shelf. Surprisingly, another pneumatic strut supports the raised ‘floor’ to make finding things much simpler.
Once you get a glance at the side of the GT, you will notice the striking difference between it and the standard 3-Series. You will be happy to know that BMW decided to drop that ugly-looking twin-door hatch design of the 5-Series GT and has adopted a more conventional hatchback look. Still, the model has been so elegantly designed that it almost offers the look of a four-door coupe. It gets a sloping roofline and a large, automatically opening and closing tailgate. BMW also placed an active rear spoiler that reduces lift at touring speeds.
When compared to a standard 3-Series, the new GT version is about 200 mm longer (7.87 inches), features a 110 mm (4.33-inch) longer wheelbase and is 81 mm (3.18 inches) taller.
2014 BMW 3 Series GT Engine :
Following in the footsteps of its big brother, the 5 Series GT, the 3 Series GT has added a third body style option to a car range that until now has only comprised a saloon and an estate, or touring model.
If you get a tape measure out you’ll find that the new GT is 200mm longer even than the 3 Series Touring, despite looking more like a sort of inflated hatchback. It’s only 75mm shorter than a 5 Series. Most of that length is hidden in the wheelbase with a 110mm increase, but there’s no hiding the extra 90mm that has slotted into the rear overhang. It, along with an 81mm overall height increase, gives the GT a visual balance weighted heavily towards the rear a matter of taste but usually a trait of prestige cars.
First off, the 3 GT is based off the long wheelbase 3 Series chassis created especially for the Chinese market. We’ve always liked seeing and riding in these stretched 3 Series and 5 Series sedans when traveling there, as the driving experience in Shanghai and Beijing traffic gets really old after about a half hour. The passenger experience in this 3 GT is thus very swell with its exterior 7.9-inches longer than the 3 Series wagon, and sporting a 4.3-inch longer wheelbase. Height is also increased by 3.2 inches, which immediately allows for fantastic headroom along with a more commanding 2.3-inch higher seat position front and back. Part of the height is also gained by setting the chassis one inch higher than the rest of the 3 Series family.
As with the rest of BMW’s 35i models, the engine here is the much loved N55 Twin Power Turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder chugging forth 302 horsepower at 5,800 rpm, accompanied by 295 pound-feet of torque from 1,200 to 5,000 rpm. Even at a stated weight of 3,850 pounds, the 335i GT’s 0-60 mile per hour time is estimated at 5.2 seconds when all the right buttons are pushed (i.e. Drive Dynamics suite in Sport+, as well as that same S+ for the eight-speed Sport automatic seen in the Sport and M Sport lines).
