The Gran Turismo model of the 3 Series is due for a facelift even if the revised 3 Series was launched this year. A test mule of this facelifted 3 Series GT was spied testing at the Nurburgring.

The facelifted BMW 3 Series GT gets a mid-life cycle refresh and the changes are similar to the ones on the revised 3 Series sedan. The car gets new bumpers, revised LED headlamps and tailamps. There seem to be no changes to the GT's tapering roof that ends into the boot with a spoiler. The changes in the interior are expected to be similar to the sedan with new contoured seats, chrome embellishments on the dashboard and steering wheel with paddle shifters.

The powertrains will also be retuned for more power and efficiency, even if the GT gets the same engine options. Also, the petrol 328i and 335i variants will be replaced by the 330i and 340i trims and the oil-burner 325d is also expected to get a power hike.

For some reason, BMW left out this GT model when they globally unveiled the facelifted version of the 3 Series last year. Finally, it is expected to be launched by the end of this year. As BMW India has brought the facelifted 3 Series here at the start of this year, we can expect the carmaker to launch this facelifted 3 Series GT as well.
