BMW Isn't Hiding The M3 Touring Anymore

Teaser / 5 Comments

There it is in plain sight.

Did you forget that the 2022 BMW M3 will soon spawn a wagon variant for the first time ever? We wouldn't blame you for forgetting because BMW has been teasing this car since 2020 through various channels. In the latest teaser video posted to the BMW M YouTube channel, the German automaker dropped nearly all pretense by showing us the car's production rear end. Of course, it looks great.

The video titled 'WE ARE M - THE M3 Touring - How It All Began' takes viewers on a journey to discover how the first-ever M3 Touring became a reality. BMW has built an M5 Touring in the past, but the smaller M3 has never officially received a wagon variant. Sadly though, BMW will not offer the M3 Touring here in the US.

We highly suggest watching the whole video as it features a guest appearance by the E46 M3 Touring Concept, a prototype vehicle that sadly never reached production. 20 years later, BMW is building an M3 wagon for customers, now based on the existing G80 generation model. At around the 5:00 mark in the video, we get to see the upcoming M3 Touring under a black cover, but they quickly lift it up to reveal the production rear end. Aside from the main BMW badge in the center, the trunk is completely devoid of any labels. We suspect the final product that customers receive will at least have an M3 badge on the back.

This is likely not the final teaser before the wraps are fully pulled off the M3 Touring, even though we've already been waiting to see it for over two years through a global pandemic. The M3 Touring will use the same 3.0-liter S58 inline-six engine featuring two turbochargers yielding 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. We expect the Touring variant to arrive as a Competition model only, featuring an eight-speed automatic transmission and xDrive all-wheel-drive. Inside, this could be the first M3 to get BMW's new iDrive 8 with a curved display.

Hopefully, the reveal happens soon.
