No New 3-Series Wagon For Canada Either; 2019 330xi Your Last Chance For A BMW Wagon

Whether you live in the United States or Canada, the outgoing BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon is your last chance to buy a brand new 3 Series estate.

In the wake of yesterday’s reports about BMW not bringing the all-new 3 Series wagon (G31) Stateside, we reached out to the automaker’s subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada and both replied with the same answer.

“BMW currently has no plans to bring over a Sports Wagon variant of the new generation 3 Series platform to the U.S. market,” Oleg Satanovsky, BMW North America Product & Technology Spokesperson, told Carscoops. “2019 will be the last opportunity for enthusiasts to order a 330i xDrive Sports Wagon (previous generation 3 Series) if they wish to do so,” the representative added.

The same goes for the Canadian market. “BMW Canada will not be bringing over a wagon version of the new 3 Series to their market. Like in the U.S., they will still offer the current 3 Series wagon for 2019,” the BMW North America spokesperson said.

Well, at least the good news is both markets will keep the current 3 Series Sports Wagon (F31) for an additional model year. The 2018 model on sale right now will continue for 2019 as well, co-existing with the all-new 2019 3 Series sedan.

As before, buyers only have one engine option, the 330i xDrive Sports Wagon. That’s a 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder engine making 248 hp (252 PS) at 5,200 rpm and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque between 1,450–4,800 rpm.

Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, the 330i Sports Wagon does 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h). The 2018 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon starts from $45,000 in the U.S., excluding $995 destination and handling.

With the 3 Series Sports Wagon gone for good in North America after the 2019MY and the uncertainty of a replacement for the current 3 Series GT, fans of more practical BMW cars will have no choice but to go the SUV way.

      I had a neighbor with an F31 with the 2L 4 banger.

      That thing was so chuggy and horrible sounding at idle, I thought he had engine damage.

        Yeah the 4 bangers are the worst, and the way you describe it, it definitely had engine issues.

    You had me at the first part of your comment lol, why would you still buy the thing even though you are not entirely over it. I have to “like it” in order to buy it. That’s the basic code lol

  • Bash

    Yeah that I see your point now.

    130 mph huh! Whereas the Euro-spec can hit 155. I guess BMW has a secret endorsement agreements with aftermarket ECU tuners in NA with this arrangement
