Default BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo gets leaked well ahead of Geneva reveal

he great power of the internet has allowed us to get an early first look at the all-new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, a car that is slated to be shown in full at the Geneva Motor Show next month, albeit without many details to go on right now. With pictures leaking out this early in the game, we'd expect that you won't have to wait until March to get the full lowdown, however.

Our first look at the 3er GT reveals a car that is, to our eyes, a tidier piece of design work than its 5 Series GT brother. The long-backside proportions are still a bit ungainly, at least from these images, but they're helped tremendously with the larger wheel/tire package and more aggressive fascia of the sport package.

Expect the 3 Series GT to hit the ground running, with the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 3.0-liter inline-six found in the standard 3 Series sedan. BMW's popular xDrive all-wheel-drive system is a virtual lock for the option sheet, too.

Click through our attached gallery for a closer peek at the car, and stay tuned for more information about the 3 Series Gran Turismo as we get closer to its Geneva launch.

Behold the leg room on this thing.



And that's with fairly minimal rear wheel well intrusion typical of BMWs. It's based on the long wheelbase 3er sold in China. It probably has more interior room than a 5 series.

Looks better than the 5GT, but that's not saying much. I'd rather have a wagon based on the long wheelbase 3-series...

The other photos I saw were from the back; I think the A5 sportback pulls it off much better.

Rear 3/4 view is screaming Hyundai. Not bad overall, though
