The premiere of a wagon based on the latest-generation BMW 3-Series will be held in March 2019. The carmaker presents the Touring version next spring at the Geneva Motor Show.
BMW has officially confirmed they discontinue the Gran Turismo for the new generation 3-Series in favor of the BMW 3-Series Touring.
The wagon will be a good choice for those who seek for a more practical vehicle than the sedan. It will arrive in 2019 and be a rival for the Audi A4 Avant and Mercedes C-Class Estate.
The new BMW 3-Series sedan has just premiered at the recent Paris Motor Show. So, the 3-Series wagon will be introduced at the next major auto show in Europe. Nothing special should be expected from a technical point of view – only the body style will change.
Needless to say, the most modifications will be in the rear end of the model: there will be a more spacious trunk than the sedan’s 480-liter one and the equipment typical for wagons.
Moreover, while Audi has the RS4 Avant, and Mercedes-Benz has the AMG C63 Estate, BMW hasn’t had the M3 Touring in its lineup for a long time. There is no official information about a new generation, but nothing can be excluded so far.
