Newbold BMW Anticipates Arrival of 2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo

Newbold BMW looks forward to the release of the 2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo later this year. It has the flexibility of a hatchback with the look and feel of a sedan.

Online PR News – 02-April-2013 – St. Louis, MO – Despite initial press cynicism, the 2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is giving a great first impression. It was released for press test drives recently, and is getting great reviews. Newbold BMW in O’Fallon, IL is looking forward to its release later this fall. The 3 Series Gran Turismo (GT) features a spacious interior, the versatility of a hatchback, and a powerful engine.

The 2014 3 Series GT has a 4.3-inch longer wheelbase than the 3 Series sedan. It also has a seating height 2 inches higher. This gives both the passengers and driver more legroom and headroom offering a more comfortable ride. It also gives the 3 Series GT a larger, sportier look.

The hatchback opening provides lots of storage space. BMW designers found a way to have the hatchback trunk, but still give the 3 Series GT the look and feel of a sedan instead of a wagon.

Powering the 3 Series GT from 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds is an N55 Twin Power Turbo inline six-cylinder 3.0-liter engine. It gets 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It is available in either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Matt Davis from Autoblog commented, “…the 3 GT warrants real consideration from buyers looking for a flexible and premium people hauler with a sure dose of driving competence.”
