New BMW 3-Series Touring To Premiere At 2019 Geneva Motor Show

After presenting the all-new 3-Series Sedan in Paris earlier this month, BMW is extensively working on the Touring version.

We already caught a glimpse of it in a set of patent images, but to see it in full, we’ll have to wait for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, next March, according to an AutomobileMagazine report.

Just like its four-door sibling, the wagon will be larger overall than the model it replaces. Moreover, it will offer better interior space, thanks to the longer wheelbase and increased width and height.

The interior layout and technologies will be carried over from the G20, getting the same infotainment system and digital instrument cluster, alongside the Intelligent Personal Assistant and an assortment of trim details to choose from.

BMW’s 2020 3-Series Touring will also get a host of driving assistance systems, as part of the standard Active Guard Plus package. Among them, customers will find lane departure warning, collision and pedestrian warning with automatic breaking, cruise control with braking function and speed limit information.

Those opting for a bit more will have to select the Driving Assistant Professional Package from the options list to get the steering and lane control assistant, lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection, active cruise control, priority warning, wrong-way warning and cross-traffic alert.

The engine lineup will also be shared with the new 3-Series Sedan, and will include the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit, in two outputs, with 184 PS (181 hp / 135 kW) and 258 PS (254 hp / 190 kW), respectively, and a six-cylinder mill, rated at 387 PS (382 hp / 284 kW).

Diesels aren’t going anywhere either, with the initial offering to include the 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) and 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW) 2.0-liter, along with the 265 PS (261 hp / 195 kW) 3.0-liter units.

A full-blown M moniker will be kept away from the new 3-Series Touring, so BMW won’t rival the likes of the Audi RS4 Avant and Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate.
