The 2014 BMW 328i Gran Turismo can be quite a tease for parents. It’s an all-new hatchback variation on the 3 Series sedan. Its body style brings an added element of ease to families, and the increased cargo room and rear legroom is nothing to scoff at either.
For people who enjoy BMW’s 3 Series sedan, the 328i GT could be the next practical step for them once kids enter the picture.
As I started formulating my pros and cons list for the Gran Turismo, I found it to be almost tit for tat. Drive experience? Pro. Fuel economy? Con. Cargo area space? Pro. Personal storage space? Con. For everything I loved about it, there seemed to be a counterpart I found ridiculous. And then, of course, there’s its biggest family obstacle: the price. The 328i xDrive Gran Turismo I tested came with a $55,500 price tag.
