BMW India will launch the new 3-Series GT at the Auto Expo 2014. The other three models to be showcased will be the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the new generation BMW X5 SUV and the i8 plug-in hybrid sportscar.

The 3-Series GT is basically a longer, wider and taller version of the 3-Series, which offers spaciousness of 5-Series, the utility of X3 and the compactness of 3-series saloon. Its wheelbase has been increased by up to 100mm, which results into larger legroom for the rear passengers. It will be offered in two diesel variants- the 4-cylinder 320d and six-cylinder 330d, paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
