2013 BMW 3-Series GT

Arriving later this year

The first official images with the upcoming 2013 BMW 3-Series GT have surfaced the Internet.

The more practical (yet less attractive) version of the 3-Series is about to make its official debut and most likely will be presented at next month's Geneva show. Continuing the trend started with the 5-Series GT, the smaller 3-Series GT will use the same engine as the regular 3-Series and will be available with both RWD and xDrive AWD systems.

The new model adopts a slightly raised seating position and comes with a two-tier rear hatch design which although looks a bit better than the one on the 5-Series GT, it's still not an attractive styling but at least it's more practical.

1st. thought seeing this "GT": "Oh what a feeling" - the old 1990`Toyota slogan from the Corolla Liftback commercials. (well at least Toyota did not name it a "GT")

As a rule, in our company, the salesperson with the least generated revenue for the week has to drive the "bummer" company car, So far for that purpose we always had a "nice" redish brown Pontiac Aztec. That car is getting a bit long in the tooth. Now I know what to get as a replacement. Thank you BMW.

This car is unique because of its design. Some people love it, some people hates it. I personally like the 5 GT, this 3 GT, All Audis SportBacks. I am a big fan of "hatchbacks" in fact, all my cars have been hachbacks. I am amazed of all the bad comments whenever there is an article of either 3 GT or 5 GT. If you don't like it, well BMW has other variants of the BMW 3 and 5 Series. Just relax!!!

Why BMW ? The 5 Series GT didn't seem to be a big success... And these "GT"s are ugly.

BMW has made it easier for society to discern people that CAN'T make decisions! Just can't decide "Do I want a sedan...do I want a wagon...do I want a hatchback..." Wow...seriously...why would someone choose this over a much more elegant and practical 3-Series Touring with AWD? Because they WANT that bigger snout on the GT instead of a properly proportioned kidney grill on the 3-Series?

So, BMW hasn't learned from the 5GT. I wonder if they'll get rid of the 3 wagon from North America the same way they did with the 5? Personally, I like hatchbacks and wagons, and Mazda did well with their 6 in that regards - this one just looks bad and seems to have missed something elementally (just can't put my finger on it).

competition for the A4 Allroad but surely the X1 would cover this segment. I understand its more of a stylish X1 but eish...BMW has gone off the rails here.

aston, audi, even VW (CC) are doing this 4 door hatchback coupe thing much better, it still looks like it was beaten with an ugly stick.

Fools and haters: Clearly this is aimed primarily at the Chinese market, where the 5GT is actually doing better than anywhere else.

I wish BMW would just rethink all these nameplate lapses for models that don't fulfill any "GT" criteria (well, aside from comfort). Design-wise not my cup of tea, as it reminds me of my grandmas old Corolla E90 liftback. "The more practical (yet less attractive) version of the 3-Series" ... please explain to me where is this thing any more practical than the Touring?
