The 2013 BMW 3-Series GT has been spied with less camouflage than ever before.

Looking virtually production ready, the model has a familiar front fascia but adopts a hatchback with a two-piece tailgate. It looks better than the 5-Series GT, but will likely be controversial since it's not as attractive as the sedan or as practical as the wagon.

Engine options will carryover from the standard model, so expect choices to include:

  • A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with outputs of 184 PS (135 kW / 181 hp) and 240 hp (180 kW / 245 PS)
  • A turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder with 300 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) 
  • A 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel with outputs of 116 PS (85 kW / 114 hp) and 143 PS (105 kW / 141 hp)

The 3-Series GT will reportedly be previewed by a concept at the Paris Motor Show, before being launched early next year.
