The 2018 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is an option for shoppers who want a luxury vehicle with more cargo capacity and easier loading than a sedan but who are turned off by SUVs and station wagons. Technically a hatchback, it has the standard all-wheel drive, high seating position, and generous cargo space of a small crossover. BMW positions the Gran Turismo as an extension of the iconic 3 Series of sport sedans and coupes. And although the GT might not quite reach that level of handling, its distinctive, aggressive styling does fit well into the lineup.
The base 330i xDrive GT is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Moving up to the 340i xDrive GT nets a turbocharged six-cylinder powerplant that develops 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. Both engines drive all four wheels through a standard eight-speed automatic sport transmission.
With a longer wheelbase than a 3 Series sedan, the GT provides increased stability on the road while offering an engaging driving experience, thanks to lightweight components and advanced suspension geometry. Even more controlled handling can be dialed up with the optional adaptive suspension system, which allows the driver to select from a choice of modes and then automatically adapts to changing road conditions. The 330i GT's turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers enough zip to satisfy most buyers, but those looking for a bit of extra excitement might want to test-drive the six-cylinder-powered 340i GT.
The GT's extra length also translates to a larger interior, with plenty of room for front occupants to stretch out. There's a generous amount of legroom in the rear compartment as well. Comfort and convenience features are on par with what's found in the rest of the 3 Series as well as competitive models. The GT's technology items, such as the latest version of the BMW iDrive control system, are well thought out and easy to use. Many buyers will choose the GT for its cargo room, and the BMW hatchback comes through with 24.6 cubic feet of storage space that opens up to 56.5 cubic feet with the back seats folded.
Equipped in standard trim — with such amenities as power seats, multizone climate control, ambient lighting and a premium sound system — both GT models can be upgraded with a number of driver assist, technology and luxury packages. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2018 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo that best meets your needs.
