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


3 Series GT 330i


2.0-litre, inline 4-cylinder petrol






8-speed Steptronic automatic

Claimed 0-100kmph

6.1 seconds

Claimed Efficiency


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.

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.
