2016 BMW 3 Series GT facelift spy photos

#hashtags: #Bavarian #BMW 3 #Series GT #Europe #LED

The Bavarian luxury car maker is working on a facelift for the BMW 3 Series GT, and a prototype of the updated car has been photographed by our spy team in Europe. As with the facelift that was applied to the 3 Series sedan and wagon earlier this year, the visual update to the GT will be minor in nature. It looks as though the upgraded 3 Series GT will sport revised headlight and tail-light graphics, with the latter featuring an updated version of the company’s now signature LED light tubes. The front and rear bumpers have also been tweaked to emphasise the car’s width. Under the bonnet, the revised Gran Turismo will carry over many of the changes made to the more mainstream sedan and wagon range, including their revised turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. Drivetrains such as the 330i’s 185kW/350Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre and the 340i’s 240kW/450Nm 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder will likely figure prominently in the updated range. That said, the GT might miss out on the 100kW/220Nm 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that powers base 318i sedan. Upgrades that were applied to the sedan and wagon’s interior and infotainment systems will also filter across the crossover hatch.
