For years, there's been a small but loyal contingent of niche customers who have been desirous of a vechicle of pretty much this configuration ... ...it is a small luxury german *automobile*, but instead of the limited weekend utility of a mortal trunk, it has a liftback-hatchback-whateveryouwanttocallit for stuff more than groceries ... while also nimbly avoiding the driver-enthusiast compromises of an SUV. That it isn't a station wagon is a bonus, because wagons (and SUVs) usually have higher NVH interior noice from poor rear axle noise isolation. If the 3er GT is going to be available in the USA with a stick, that would be the icing on the cake. I've been sitting on the cash...just sign me up. -hh

Saw this at the New York auto show a few weeks ago. Damn thing is BIG...as in a mere 2 inches (5cm) narrower than my garage door's opening. The BMW representative alluded to it actually being built on the 5 Series platform, which I'd also believe. The big thing for me was that the liftback does (yes!) have a hard platform to minimize interior cabin noise. What remains to be seen are the engine/transmission combinations: what was shown in NYC was a 335 GT with an Automatic & X Drive for $48K ($47,745 w/destination charge). Thanks, but I'll take a stick and don't need that much motor (nor do I need X Drive), particularly as the wife doesn't want to see me break the pyschological $40K barrier. -hh

Wow! What a beauty! This is the way forward BMW! Never mind the conservative, backward looking, petrol-heads. Let them have SLKs and Subarus.

So this is BMW's direct shot at the A5 Sportback? Love to see them together. The A5 will make the 3er look like the styling mess that it is.

The GTs of BMW are so unproportionaly.. every brand could make better ones (Mondeo, Insignia, Laguna...)

To me this sounds like another fail like the 5 series GT

Is it just me, or is that a lot of legroom for a 3 series?

Optical illusion - probably a wide angle lens or photoshop. Look at the rear door - it conversely looks too small for ingress/egress.

It is built on the stretch chassis, so it does indeed have more rear seat legroom.

I know I'll get flamed for this but, I actually don't mind it.

The windows are still too high... But else, might be good looking with tinted windows on a clear paint (silver, white...)

the real spoiler is completely an a7 cheating

Yea, because the A7 was definitely the first car to have a retractable lip spoiler...

@Shumy: the VW Corrado (1988-1995) was a shorter 2 door hatch, but it also had a retractable spoiler element. There was also the similar but also shorter-lived Chrysler Crossfire (2003-2007) in the USA.
