BMW is putting the finishing touches on the facelifted 3-Series GT as our spies have caught a couple of prototypes undergoing testing.

BMW is putting the finishing touches on the facelifted 3-Series GT as our spies have caught a couple of prototypes undergoing testing.

Dressed in moderate camouflage, the facelifted model will follow in the footsteps of the 2015 3-Series sedan and touring which were introduced earlier this year.  As a result, the changes will be relatively minor and include modestly revised bumpers and updated lighting units.

The interior should receive a number of minor changes including revised upholstery and trim combinations as well as additional metallic accents.  We can also look forward to a revised center console, a full color head-up display and an upgraded navigation system that promises to deliver faster performance as well as more realistic 3D graphics.

Engine options will carryover from the sedan and wagon, so expect a variety of different petrol and diesel options including a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder that has outputs of 184 PS (134 kW) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) of torque as well as 252 PS (185 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.

The facelifted BMW 3-Series GT is expected to be introduced in early to mid-2016, so look for a possible debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
