The 3 Series GT Receives a Face Lift

            It was back in February of 2013 when BMW first announced the 3 Series GT. BMW’s goal was to create something that was slimmer and sportier looking than an SUV or wagon but still just as practical. The end result wasn’t as bad as the 5 Series GT, which is widely regarded as one of the worst looking BMWs of all time, but it definitely was not a pretty sight. The new 2017 3 Series GT has had its look refreshed, but surprisingly without too many changes. The only real visual upgrades were the addition of LED headlights and taillights as well as revised bumpers.

            The interior, however, did get some changes, like a new interface for the iDrive system and a wireless charging system for smart phones. There will also be new interior color schemes and trims that will be made available, with the interior volume remaining at 56.5 cubic feet. The 3 Series GT in the U.S. will come out in 330i (2.0-liter 248-hp four-cylinder) and 340i (3.0-liter 320-hp six-cylinder engine) variants. Both options come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and All Wheel Drive only.

            The 2017 3 Series GT is scheduled to hit U.S. dealers later this year with a price close to the 2016 model’s $43,995 base price.
