2019 BMW 3-Series Touring Sheds More Camo, Looks Like A Sportier 5er

Rumor has it that BMW will unveil the all-new 3-Series Touring at next year’s Geneva Motor Show in March, thus rendering the old sixth-gen F31 model obsolete from a technological standpoint.

Compared to its predecessor, the new 3-Series Touring will be larger, more spacious, safer, smarter, more connected and according to BMW, more enjoyable to drive. It should also serve you better than its four-door counterpart if you need additional room for luggage.

Germany’s newest sports wagon

Unless you fancy the Audi A4 Avant or the Mercedes C-Class Estate more, odds are the new 3-Series Touring will immediately take over as Germany’s sportiest-looking wagon, at least for this segment, since something like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is also technically a wagon.

This latest batch of spy images reveal a familiar design, one that seems to confirm everything we saw in those leaked patent images from last month.

Overall, this is a very modern car, resembling the larger 5-Series Touring only as far as the overall design language – otherwise, we can clearly see that both the headlights and the taillights have a more dynamic aesthetic on the 3-Series.

Inside, the new 3-Series sedan’s entire layout and available on-board tech will be carried over into the touring model, meaning it’s getting the same infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, trim levels, driving assistance systems, optional packages and so on.

As for its engine line-up, it will feature the G20’s range of available petrol and diesel power units, including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-pot with 184 PS (181 HP) and 258 PS (254 HP) respectively, and a six-cylinder mill, good for 387 PS (382 HP). With the diesels, there should be 150 PS (148 HP) and 190 PS (187 HP) versions of a 2.0-liter engine, as well as a 265 PS (261 HP) 3.0-liter one.

Once on sale, the all-new BMW 3-Series Touring will challenge the likes of the Audi A4 Avant, Mercedes C-Class Estate and all-new Volvo V60.
