It's rather genius.

Its for other vehicles to have direct competitors i.e. the A5 sport back.

Unfortunately, as I stated in my previous comment, I feel like this is exactly what the 3GT should be. It is attractive, sporty, and does not appear crossover-y much like the heavier appearing 3GT.

The big difference between the 3GT and this I believe is available cargo room. This has no more room than a regular 3 Series in the boot, and less space in the cabin area.

With sales always climbing, I'm sure the production and marketing department know what they're doing with the release of a 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and their respective GTs, GCs, and ///M performance editions.
