Automotive Affairs by Nauman

2014 BMW 335i GT, is this the 3-series yet?

A few years BMW’s engineers took the of their 7-series model, and it a shell that was quite anything anyone had ever It looked like a very big and hatchback (which it was, in a with a tailgate that be opened by either lifting the gate up, or by just opening a portion, to get things in and out in a hurry.

the vehicle was not badged as a 7-series, it was badged as a 5-series. This became the first BMW Gran (GT) model.

While I the 5-series GT, it got mixed reviews others journalists, and the buying didn’t exactly give it a reception either. Due to less impressive sales numbers, it like the GT idea was one that go away soon, but BMW wasn’t to give up on it that easily.

So, for 2014, BMW has unveiled a new GT model, is actually based on the long version of the 3-series sedan in China. The longer wheelbase there is more room for seat passengers, making it practical than a regular However, due to its sloping roof, it less cargo space the 3-series Touring.

Unlike the the 3GT does not have a two-stage but does gain an active spoiler, which rises as you go 120 km/h – so that means never see it deployed in Canada, our nations top speed limit is 100 right? However, there is a on the door, by the window switches, lets you manually deploy spoiler – at least that is you’ll tell the officer why spoiler is up.

In Canada, the 3GT is available with two a 2.0-litre, turbo charged, unit that produces 241 hp and 258 of torque, and the 3.0-litre, turbo six-cylinder motor that 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. My tester equipped with the latter.

As expect, this is a fast commuter. The 335i GT can sprint zero to 100 km/h in just 5.4 while top speed is electronically to 210 km/h.

Thanks to its excellent chassis, the car stable and confidence inspiring at speeds, and since all 3GT models in Canada come standard BMW’s xDrive all-wheel system, that confident stays with you, of what mother nature has in for you.

The xDrive system helps you in the corners, as it applies to the wheels that can best use it. All of happens very seamlessly, you to sit back and enjoy the drive.

If you like I do, your city and average will be close to litres/100km – however, I’d like to out that my test was done in one of the weeks in winter, and the car was wearing tires. In the summer, the fuel would be much better.

It’s eight-speed automatic is and seriously quick, especially in mode, and while cruising on the it seats the revs at around which is very relaxing.

As for the one the 3GT, the experience is very like sitting in any other which means, a great, tech interior with of features to amuse you, but is a bit in aesthetic appeal. For the rear passengers, there is more leg as mentioned before, but headroom flowing away thanks to sloping roof. Like all 3-series models, the ride is excellent, which has always a strong selling point for model.

Are there any weak points? technically, but I wish it looked special. The BMW 3GT is very rightly a for the Audi A7, as both these offer about the same and practicality. The 3GT is actually quite a bit than an A7 also, but the latter much more upscale. The M package on the 3GT does make it nicer though, and I very enjoyed the reaction my tester got on the

Canadian pricing for the 328i GT at $48,990. My 335i GT tester lots of desirable options was at around $64,000.

I very liked the 3GT, but is it the best currently on sale? Personally, I’d spend my earnings on the 3-series model.
