The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo

The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo combines the 3 Series Sedan’s dynamic, sporting genes with the practicality and versatility of the Touring. Typical BMW proportions, four doors with frameless windows, a coupe-style, gently downward-sloping roofline and a large, automatically opening and closing tailgate define the distinctive exterior character of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo. An active rear spoiler provides visual lightness and reduces lift at touring speeds. The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is 200 millimetres longer in total than the BMW 3 Series Touring, comes with a 110 millimetre longer wheelbase and stands 81 millimetres taller.

BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo introduces active rear spoiler

BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo introduces active rear spoiler

The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is the first BMW fitted with an active rear spoiler. The rear spoiler extends automatically once the car reaches 110 km/h (68 mph) to ensure it retains the traditional BMW dynamic capability at higher speeds. Once extended, the spoiler reduces lift on the rear axle by more than 35 percent, allowing the Gran Turismo to replicate the aerodynamic qualities of the BMW 3 Series Sedan. If the car’s speed slows below 70 km/h (43 mph), the spoiler automatically retracts, melting back into the car’s trailing edge almost invisibly. If required, the rear spoiler can be extended and retracted manually.
