The BMW 1-Series GT will be launched at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and the model is expected to hit the dealerships in its final form in 2014.
Even if the German based automaker didn’t say anything about the BMW 1-Series GT yet, the guys at the bmwblog.com are announcing that the model will make its official appearance at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The BMW 1-Series GT will be a direct competitor to the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the model is being known internally as the Compact Activity Tourer. The BMW 1-Series Gran Turismo will be just one of many models to come with front-wheel drive from BMW.
Our source is also saying that the BMW 1-Series Gran Turismo will be powered by three- and four-cylinder turbo engines, and it’s no surprise that the model will ride on the new platform with front-wheel drive. Once the new BMW 1-Series GT will hit the market, Hybrid and xDrive versions of it are also expected, but we don’t know anything about its performance and fuel consumption yet. The BMW 1-Series GT will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and the German car will hit the dealerships in 2014.
