BMW Finally Considering A G21 M3 Wagon: Report

BMW is reportedly considering a proper M3 version of the new G21-generation 3 Series Touring; if true, it will mark the first time an M3 is offered with a wagon body.

The new 3 Series Touring will most likely debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and is expected to offer a slightly bigger boot than the outgoing model and a pop-up tailgate for obvious practicality reasons.

And while BMW has never officially offered an M3 Touring before, sources from within the company suggest that it’s been finally considered, Autocar reports. The M3 Touring’s case is further helped by the minimal development costs, allowing BMW to offer a proper rival to the likes of the Audi RS4 Avant and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate.

However, if BMW does indeed decide to produce a long-roof Touring version of the next M3, it will be for European markets only and not for the US due to weak demand.

The latest reports suggest that the G21 M3 will be powered by an upgraded version of the current model’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six engine with up to 500hp while some rumors even talk about BMW offering the M xDrive all-wheel drive system from the M5 as an option.

BMW is reportedly planning to reveal the new M3 at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show next September, at least in its classic four-door sedan shape. Stay tuned for more info as we have them.

    Kind of funny you just mention G21 code like you were experts on BMW; while on the contrary you are also experts of writing thousands of articles, based on stupid Russian driver videos, or stupid photoshops of cars that will never exist.

      However. The G20 based M3 will actually be codenamed G80. G22 based M4 will be G82. The Touring, if it ever exists, would probably be codenamed G81.

    MB AMG has been doing it for quite a while with CLA, C (?) and E class. 😉

    Personally I love how the CLA exterior AMG saloon looks like, it’s almost as a slightly stretched hatchback, but still feels long like a sedan… somehow. Only waiting for the interior to catch up, cause I HATE the old A platform interior, it’s so 90s…

      CLA is a smaller front-wheel drive platform, so not comparable at all.
      Class E AMG is not new but has been preceded by the M5 Touring and RS2.

      • Yavor

        CLA is 1 cm longer than a 3 series. And it has 4matic for all wheel drive.

        Not sure I care who came first or not. Why is that relevant?
