Spied out testing is the 2012 BMW 3-Series GT again — with some clear interior shots this time.

Set to be officially revealed at this September’s Frankfurt show, BMW seems not to have been discouraged by the luke warm reaction to the larger 5-Series GT — a car that the boss of BMW North America called “disappointing” and “a mistake”.  No doubt Jim O’Connell’s face will drop when he sees what the Germans are planning for the volume selling model in the range…

Essentually a high riding five door 3er, the car will use the same engines as the 2012 model saloon on which it is based.  This means BMW’s latest four- and six-cylinder motors, including a new 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit that was recently added to the X1 and X2 SUVs.  Don’t expect a M3 model however.

Expect some styling feartures from the 5 GT to make it over, including the sloping roofline and double layered bootlid.

Our spies have managed to grab amongst the first interior shots, which shows a pretty standard BMW layout without any real suprises.

UK sales are expected to start early 2012, with the car priced above the current 3-Series, from about £28,000.
