It is the third member of the 3 Series line up and boasts the biggest boot of the lot. The 3 GT has a 520-litre boot – bigger than the 3 Series Touring by 25 litres – that can be expanded to 1,600 litres in its largest load-carrying configuration, although the car doesn’t have any space to carry a spare wheel.
It gets the same range of engines as the saloon, including the entry-level 320i and mega 302bhp 335i, as well as the fast-but-frugal 320d. It gets a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while an eight-speed automatic can be specified as a cost option.
It goes on sale in the summer and will cost from £28,830 for a base-spec 320i. The flagship 335i in Modern trim will set you back £38,470.
