Over the decades, BMW has become extremely skillful at finding white space in the automotive landscape and filling it with an innovative new product. While everyone else is zigging, BMW does its homework and zags. A few examples of this deft product planning is the original Z3 roadster, the X6 SUV and this, the 3 Series GT hatchback.
First introduced in 2014, the 3 Series GT successfully shares the 3 Series lineup with the better known 3 Series sedan and wagon. It offers a unique combination of BMW driving dynamics, a sleek and sexy fastback body style, a huge back seat and the convenience and versatility of a hatchback.
Hatchback sport luxury sedans aren’t exactly unicorns, but they aren’t very common either. The BMW 3 Series GT competes with the new Audi A5 Sportback as well as BMW’s own 4 Series Gran Coupe, which is also a hatchback.
