BMW 3-Series GT loses some of its camo

BMW is working hard on a more practical version of the 3-Series as these images show the GT variant while undergoing some testing. As we have already seen on the 5-Series GT, its smaller counterpart will adopt a similar raised seating position and ride height, along with a two-tier rear hatch design. Under the hood it is expected to get 4- and 6-cylinder engines, and it will be offered in RWD and xDrive AWD flavors.

As a reminder, two years ago BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer mentioned that the reason why the 3-Series needs a more practical variant is because it’s “considered a volume builder with which we can earn good money.” However, judging by the poor sales numbers of the 5-Series GT, we can only assume that the smaller 3-Series GT won’t be a blockbuster hit, mostly because of its design.

The BMW 3-Series GT will be launched next year.

People Really should realize that the 5GT is massively popular in Asia. It sells as much as 7 series. BMW don't just build cars for Western countries.

Little brother gets big brother's UGLY genes...a design that defies logic given the 5GT.

I am interested. But unfortunately, they won't build me a manual RWD version for North America.
