Redesigned 2017 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo

2017 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo

BMW is updating the GT version of the 3-series, and these are changes you won't want to miss. The Gran Turismo sees two new engines: a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder (code name B46) and a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six (B58), both part of BMW's new modular engine architecture. To denote this change, the four-cylinder 328i Gran Turismo becomes the 330i, while the six-cylinder 335i Gran Turismo will henceforth be known as the 340i. Both engines get a little more power as well: the four-cylinder makes 248 horsepower (up from 240), while the new six is good for 320 horsepower (versus 300). An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.

While maintaining the overall slick, fresh look, both models also now come with standard matte-chrome exterior trim and LED headlights. And to mix it up, a new 19-inch wheel design is available, too. Not to mention a few improved connectivity features available in the option packages.
