2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo Hatchback 335i xDrive 4dr Hatchback AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

One of the sportiest cars around, but PLENTY of room in the back sear for 2 full-grown adults. Plus, the panoramic double-long sunroof give a great sensation for passengers and driver. Sits a bit high, which is great for vision and entry/exit, but hugs the road like a much lower-slung car. NEVER a problem taking off from a light, merging into traffic, or getting around those left-lane cruisers. The 8-speed transmission and the bi-turbo make the car extremely quick, but all the shifting can take a bit of getting used to. The sport line gives you an option for Sport Display on the nice-sized and nicely-positioned screen which show HP and torque as you drive -- very cool! Navigation is excellent, but I dinged it a bit because the voice recognition is a be dodgy sometimes. More cargo capacity than a 3-series wagon. The angle of the hatch back intrudes a bit when trying to fit/load large, squared-off boxes, but overall the cargo space is cavernous. Tons of thoughtful features like tie-downs and bag-holders in the rear, USB ports, kick-to-open rear liftgate, etc. overall a very nicely-done, well-performing car!

2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo Hatchback 328i xDrive 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

I purchased a certified pre-owned 2014 328GT with the sport package, climate and nav. I am impressed with the car's versatility, performance, appearance, comfort and gas mileage. I am averaging 25.5 mpg city and 37.2 highway. I am not a fan of the iDrive system (programming a radio station takes 5 minutes and/or reference to the owner's manual, in the age of smartphones why is this so difficult?) however and the run-flat tires transmit considerable noise on rough roads. I originally had wind noise but the dealer was able to adjust the close point of the sunroof and this had not been a problem since, even with frequent opening/closing. A couple of things I wish this car had include 1) a more accessible location for the rear hatch button 2) remote start 3) wider side bolsters on the seat backs (front only).

Review

Rear headroom is great due to roofline. Cargo capacity is good with rear seats up, great with rear seats down. Wish I had the all around video and lane warning features.

Review

My previous 4 cars have been BMW 3 Series. All certified preowned with under 40K miles. All were lease returns. I enjoy driving the 3 series, but I wanted more trunk space and a larger back seat. I drive between 35k and 45k miles per year. Daily commute is 142 miles. My last 3 series had reached 150K miles, the time I start looking for a replacement. A friend purchased a 328 Grand Truismo - I was immediately impressed by the space. 3 adults fit very comfortably in the back seat and the cargo area is big, hatch makes loading very easy. I have owned the GT for one month. Very comfortable, it's based on the 3 series BMW makes for the China Market - I was told, wealthy individuals in China prefer to have a driver, so BMW needed to make the 3 series longer and wider to provide a larger back seat. This setup works perfectly in the GT. I am 6'1", perfectly comfortable in the driver seat. The longer wheelbase lends itself to a smoother ride. I really enjoy driving this car, I have the SPORT edition: Blacked out trim, black leather interior, red stitching, brushed aluminum replaces wood on the interior, gray-smoke 18" wheels, sport wheel with paddle shifters. Great highway ride, above average power, 32MPG HWY. Only complaint - larger blind spot. GT has a lower resale than 3 series sedan. So first owner takes the initial loss - Vehicle was $53,800 in 2014 - My purchase with 36K miles and certified preowned from BMW was $29,150. If you like the 3 series, but want more useful cargo space and a larger back seat then take a look at the GT.
