PRLog - Feb. 19, 2013 - BARRINGTON, Ill. -- Motor Werks BMW (http://www.motorwerksbmwbarrington.com/dealership/about.htm) in Barrington, IL is not only a source for new BMW vehicles and high-quality pre-owned cars, but also a source for BMW news, and they’re looking forward to the release of a variation of BMW’s most popular models. The 3-Series sedan is renowned for performance and thoroughly refined luxury, and now drivers who value more versatility will be able to find a five-door hatchback version of the 3-Series at in the coming year.

The new 3-Series GT hatchback will sport a coupe-like roofline and four frameless doors, giving it a sleek profile. The 3-Series GT will actually be slightly bigger than both the current wagon and sedan models, which will give rear passengers improved legroom. The cargo area in the back is also larger, and the rear seat can fold in a 40/20/40 split to fit any sort of cargo.

The new 3-Series GT will come with the same powertrains as are available on the current 3-Series (http://www.motorwerksbmwbarrington.com/new-inventory/inde...) sedan and wagon. These include a direct-injected 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that is good for 240 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque and a similarly turbocharged 3.0L inline six-cylinder that cranks out 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission will be standard.

The new 3-Series GT will be available in four different trim levels: Sport, Luxury, Modern, and M Sport. The higher level trims will mostly add aesthetic changes like leather upholstery and wood and chrome accents inside. The M Sport package will add sport seats and a lowered suspension. The timetable for release of the new hatchback is probably sometime later this year, debuting as a 2014 model in the United States. The new BMW 3-Series GT will join the current 5-Series GT, released in 2010, as the second hatchback vehicle the German automaker sells in the United States.
