At there is the BMW M3 sedan with an average saving of 8712 euros (as of June 08, 2022).

After discussing the first M3 touring prototype from the year 2000, one actually pulls the cloth a bit from the first M3 –standard combination. Only the rear is shown, but that’s what matters in the end. As hoped, the Touring adopts the bulky apron with a black diffuser and four tailpipes from the limousine. Another picture now shows the rear view of the Hatchback M3.

The rear of the new M3 Touring can be seen in the video. The mighty apron looks just as good in the sedan as it does in the limousine.

Only the roof edge spoiler is a bit more subtle than we would have imagined: Apparently he gets it sports suit that of the regular 3 Series Touring, but also has a small, black lip in front of the lower edge. As far as the front is concerned, it can be strongly assumed that BMW will also give the Touring the large double kidney and that design overall not from the the limousine differs.
There were also some interesting teaser images on Instagram at the end of January. There, the M3 Touring was still well camouflaged on a frozen lake in Sweden and revealed a new detail: The station wagon gets BMW’s current iDrive 8 infotainment with a large curved display, which has already found its way into the facelift of the BMW 3 Series. There is a 12.3-inch digital one cockpit and a 14.9-inch center display housed under a curved glass.

As with the facelift of the BMW 3 Series, the M3 Touring could get the screens combined under a curved glass.

The rear of this large screen unit can be seen in the teaser image showing the car slightly from above. This should go hand in hand with a reduced interior, but the classic rotary pushbutton switch should also be retained in the M3 Touring.

To the engine the rumor persists that BMW is station wagon exclusively in the more powerful Competition version all wheel drive and automatic will offer. That would mean that the 480th hp strong base model with rear wheel drive and manual transmission omitted – a disappointment for traditionalists.

At least one of the classic BMW virtues would remain: the straight-six. The Touring should take over that directly from the sedan. Means: three liters of displacement, twin-turbo charging and an output of 510 hp and 650 Nm. Because of the higher weight, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h should be a bit slower than 3.5 seconds.
