The 3 Series GT is actually built on the platform of the long wheelbase car sold in China, and so is 200 mm (7.9 inches) longer even than the 3 Series Toring, thanks in part to a 110 mm (4.3 inches) linger wheelbase.

As a result of this, there's more room inside the car, with 520 liters of luggage space topping the capacity of a 3 Series Touring by about a quarter.

The engine range is, as you'd expect, market specific. In America, only the 328i and 35i version will be available, though BMW is getting ready to launch diesels this year in North America.

Meanwhile in Europe, the lineup starts at the 320i Gran Turismo, which has a 184 PS turbo engine, but also includes the 328i with 245 PS, and the 335i with 306 PS. The diesel model range only has two models at the moment, the 143 PS 318d and the 184 PS 320d, though more engines are sure to follow.
