Spyshots: 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo
There has been a bit of confusion when we decided to refer the spyshots as the two-door 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo or the 4-Series. But closer inspection revealed that the prototype with heavy camouflage sheet all over the body definitely uses the F30’s platform. Oh, and the 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo is not a sedan or four-door as the rear end carries a hatchback styling. Code name for this prototype is F34 with the official unveiling will be taking place somewhere this year.
The Bavarian carmaker smartly covered the 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo hatchback and they almost had us to think that we are looking at the 3-Series sedan. But one part of the vehicle that reveals the true design of this prototype which is the rear end. Autoevolution.com referred that the 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo has little resemblance with the 5-Series GT as this hatchback is lower and carries svelter.
The best of all, no camel hump anywhere we look on the 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo. We predict that the simple hatchback is more practical than the unusual twin trunk arrangement that Bavarian carmaker applies on the 5-Series Gran Turismo. Okay, enough with the design as we are about to talk about the most important part of this hatchback – the engine range.
The possibility of engine choices for the 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo are much likely turbocharged petrol and reliable diesel. The transmission options could be the 6-speed manual with the 8-speed automatic as the optional feature for all engine types. The M version of 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo could be not arrived, as the Bavarian automaker might be developing the ActiveHybrid 3 Gran Turismo.
