Rumors also suggest BMW could finally build the M3 wagon of our dreams.
The new BMW 3 Series Touring wagon continues strip teasing as it moves closer to production ahead of its reveal at Geneva next March. Seen driving on city streets, the front of the wagon is fully exposed. As you would expect, the styling changes from the new 3 Series sedan have carried over such as the LED headlights and redesigned kidney grille, making for a sleek-looking wagon.
The G20 3 Series sedan is also larger than its predecessor, so we’re expecting new Touring model to have an even more spacious cabin than the current 3 Series Wagon. At the rear, there’s also a small spoiler and the same L-shaped taillights as the sedan. Inside, the new 3 Series comes with a 5.7-inch digital instrument screen and 8.8-inch infotainment display as standard. This setup can be upgraded to an optional 12.3-inch instrument display and 10.25-inch infotainment screen, so expect these options to carry over to its wagon sibling.
It’s a similar story for the engine options. Expect a choice of either a 255-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 382-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six. Rumors also suggest BMW will launch a high-performance M3 Touring to rival the Audi RS4 Avant. Yes, our dreams of a BMW M3 wagon could come true. Unfortunately, BMW still hasn’t confirmed if the new 3 Series Wagon will be sold in the US, but it will launch in Europe in 2019. It seems unlikely though, given the decline in wagon sales over here, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
