The 3 Series GT is only available in Shadow Edition which is based on the M Sport variant

If the new-generation (G80) 3 Series’ price tag seems steep, the previous-gen (F34) 3 Series GT comes around as a great proposition. The 3 Series GT is only available in the top-spec M Sport trim priced at Rs 42.50 lakh, almost the same as the new-gen BMW 3 Series sedan (Rs 42.30 lakh to Rs 49.30 lakh). We’ve thoroughly compared the two to find out which one’s a better buy here. There are no two ways about it, the 3 Series GT makes a lot of sense as far as the value card is concerned. So, let’s delve into the 3 Series GT’s specifications in details: 

Engine Specifications

Specs

3 Series GT 330i

Engine

2.0-litre, inline 4-cylinder petrol

Power

252PS@5,200rpm

Torque

350Nm@1,450-4,800rpm

Transmission

8-speed Steptronic automatic

Claimed 0-100kmph

6.1 seconds

Claimed Efficiency

13.95kmpl

The 3 Series GT is available only with the 2.0-litre petrol unit that proffers quite a punch when it comes to performance. It’s claimed 0-100 time is quite impressive for a sub-Rs 50 lakh sedan. The top speed is electronically limited to 250kmph. The 8-speed torque converter automatic has been known for its precise shifts for long now. The fuel efficiency is quite lower than the new-gen 3 Series but that shouldn’t be much of a bother to a BMW buyer.

Dimensions

Parameter

3 Series GT (F34)

3 Series (G80)

Length

4824 mm

4709 mm

Width (including mirrors)

2047 mm

2068 mm

Height

1508 mm

1435 mm

Wheelbase

2920 mm

2851 mm

Given that these are two different generations of cars, it might not be a fair comparison. However, the GT is longer, taller and even has a longer wheelbase than the newer generation 3 Series sedan. So, it’s imperative that the 3 GT will offer better cabin space. For practicality, it also gets hatch-like rear door opening and 40:20:40 rear split seats. 

Features Galore?

Since it is available in the top-spec fully loaded M Sport edition, the 3 Series GT is packed to the brim with equipment. Here’s a list of the headlining convenience features: 

  • Full-LED illumination

  • Auto headlamp and rain-sensing wipers

  • M Sport insignia and cosmetic enhancements

  • Heated outside rearview mirror with anti-glare and memory function

  • 18-inch M Jet Black alloy wheels 

  • Dual-zone climate control with rear AC vents

  • Powered driver (with memory) and passenger seats

  • Wooden and chrome highlights for touchpoints

  • Ambient lighting

  • Panorama glass roof

  • 10.5-inch multi-information display

  • Push-button start/stop

  • 8.8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and iDrive

  • 9-speaker sound system

The safety features on offer comprise the following:

  • Front and rear parking sensors

  • Rear parking camera

  • ABS with EBD

  • Traction control

  • ISOFIX child seat anchorages

  • Six airbags

  • Runflat tyres

As things stand at the moment, this is the last hurrah for the BMW 3 Series GT in India. This body form will not be renewed with the new-generation 3 Series. Instead, BMW will bring the 3 Series Long Wheelbase sold in China to give the 3 Series sedan company. As far as prices are concerned, the 3 Series GT’s tag of Rs 42.50 lakh (ex-showroom India) is only Rs 1.10 lakh more than the smaller 2 Series Gran Coupe which gives it immense value for money.
