Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW 3 Series hatchback?

The Audi A5 Sportback is a similar to the 3 GT in that it comes with a practical hatchback boot, yet it has coupé inspired styling with a low roofline and sleek lines. It won’t have the same amount of space inside as the 3 GT, but it will corner better with less body roll.

If you want something with a bit more flair, then the bold styling of the Citroen DS5 could appeal. It has the additional height as per the 3 GT, plus, road and wind noise is well contained at speed. Its unforgiving, rock-hard ride doesn’t do it any favours though.

Then, there is the more conventional alternative, the 3 Series Touring. The Touring is better to drive than the 3 GT, it’s even more efficient and quieter at speed. It’s not as accommodating for those in the back, however.
