There will be no GT class for the new BMW 3 Series
During the Paris Show, Mr. Klaus Fröhlich, Head of Business Development at BMW, revealed that the new generation of the third category will not get the GT sports due to the presence of X1 and X3.
Mr. Klaus said that the high-performance GT class is often similar in design to the smaller Crossover. The company now has many options for the smaller Crossover X1 and X3, making the presence of the GT category of the third category unnecessary.
Klaus revealed in his speech that the new category III, which was recently unveiled at the Paris exhibition, will get 10 different categories to choose from. The third class GT was first launched in the previous generation in 2013 and features its long wheelbase.
