The journalists published photos with a prototype of the high-performance BMW M3 Touring station wagon. The novelty was seen on the streets of Munich (Germany). The debut will take place only in 2022.
Foreign spy photographers last saw prototypes of the BMW M3 Touring in March, when the station wagon was being tested in northern Sweden. Now there are new spy shots of the model with the long roof, although it is no different from when we last saw it. The same tight-fitting camouflage still covers the body of the novelty, although there is nothing to hide here, since the BMW M3 Touring is very similar to the M3 sedan.
New images show the car has returned to Munich, Germany, although it will be months before it hits the market.
The M3 Touring gets the same large false grille and aggressive front bumper as the M3 sedan, with the only difference being a longer roof. The rear bumper doesn’t look as aggressive as the sedan, although that may change before its debut.
Recent rumors suggest that BMW will offer the M3 Touring in both rear-wheel drive trim and a more powerful Competition version, for which the all-wheel drive system is reserved. The station wagon will be offered with the same engines as the BMW M3 sedan. This contradicts earlier speculations that BMW will only offer the M3 Touring in the Competition trim level, which means it will only be available in AWD with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base M3 Touring may offer rear-wheel drive with a manual transmission. The car is expected to have the same power as the sedan – 503bhp, which will come from a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six engine.
The M3 Touring is not expected to debut until 2022. BMW has confirmed it will not sell the station wagon in all markets. In particular, this applies to the United States, and this is despite the petition filed with a request to start selling a powerful station wagon in this country.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the unsuccessful tuning of the BMW X5 was presented on the Internet. Things are so bad with the design of this crossover that Internet users have already labeled it as the ugliest BMW.
