With the 2 Gran Coupe, you’d have to live with a rather average rear seat, and let go of a few premium features. Compact dimensions overall mean it will look small parked next to a compact SUV. So if you equate price to size, the baby Bimmer might seem a bit underwhelming. If you intend on hanging on to the car for long, it’s worth considering flexing your wallet a little more, and eyeing the 3 Series. But if the youngster in you wants to dip his toes in the luxury market, only to update to a larger, midsize luxury car in the near future - when the kids grow up - the 2 Series Gran Coupe makes a solid case for itself. And it does so by not cutting any corners in offering you the “luxury car” experience. The looks will get people envious, the cabin quality is excellent, and the ride suits Indian roads (and tastes) too. To top it off the engine refinement and performance live up to BMW standards. It will feel like a properly expensive luxury car, especially to the first time lux-car buyer. The 3 GT on the other hand is a generation older and looks slightly dated compared to the 2 Gran Coupe. However, its new Shadow edition variant makes it a good value for money offering. You miss out on features like gesture control and an LCD instrument cluster but if those features are something you don’t really require, the 3 GT makes a lot of sense. If you will be chauffeured around mostly and want a luxury car for the family, the 3 GT still makes a case for itself. You may compare both cars accoridngly.
