The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo (also referred to as "3 Series GT") is the 5-door fastback body style of the 3 Series model range. Although it features a rear hatchback, the 3 Series GT is not considered a successor to the 1993-2004 3 Series Compact 3-door hatchbacks.

The first 3 Series GT, model code F34, is based on the F30 3 series platform and was released in 2013. At launch, the engine range consisted of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines in inline-4 and straight-6 configurations. All-wheel drive was available in the "iX" and "dX" models.

Chassis and body[edit]

2014 BMW 318d Gran Turismo

The F34 is based on the F35 chassis used by the Chinese market long wheelbase sedan.[2] It has a wheelbase that is 110 mm (4.3 in) longer than the F31 3-series estate. The roof is 79 mm (3.1 in) higher than the F31 and the width is increased by 17 mm (0.67 in).[3] These increased dimensions result in the rear wheels being located further back and lower with respect to the rear seat, and allows for three full-size rear seats.[4]
