BMW 1-Series GT with three-cylinder engine going to Paris Motor Show

BMW is planning to launch the 1-Series GT model, equipped with a three-cylinder engine, at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.

Even if there is no official word on this subject from the German based automaker just yet, the guys at autocar.co.uk are saying that the BMW 1-Series GT is expected to be officially presented to the public in September, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show. According to our source, the model in question will be offered as a new entry-level in the company’s lineup and BMW enthusiasts will be able to own the vehicle for less money.

The BMW 1-Series GT will be offered in a front-wheel drive layout and the model will share the same platform with the upcoming MINI vehicles. Under the hood, the BMW 1-Series GT will get a MINI-sourced 1.5 liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine which will cut down on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The new 1.5 turbocharged three-cylinder engine will basically be half of the popular 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder unit used by BMW on its models. Unfortunately we don’t have any more details on the BMW 1-Series GT so we will have to wait for the French automotive event this autumn, where the vehicle will be presented.
