So, you thought you’d had enough of the BMW 3 Series latest iteration and all the news coming in about it? Well, it’s not going to end soon.
As it happens, BMW’s sales figures are still properly riding on the new F30 delivering on all fronts so they’ve just opened up another one.
It’s called the 3 Series Touring, it’s nothing very surprising since it’s essentially just an estate version of the F30 but that’s not to say it hasn’t got any appeal.
Even though the F30 has grown a few inches and its interior space is quite a little bit larger than the the E90s, it’s still not enough.
Nowhere near enough space for a typical family on the move. Sure, it can take four people in comfort with a little luggage for a weekend or so.
But going on vacation, maybe with five people, or taking a dog along will certainly not be enough. That’s where the 3 Series Touring begins to shine.
It allegedly can hold 495 liters, quite the treat. Once again, the estate is going to be the choice for the more practical man.
Speaking of practicality, the 328i is expected to be the most popular engine choice for it. Which is odd, since it will only be available with that powerplant in the US.
Now that we’re speaking of availability, there’s not too much good news around. It’s going to be about another year before its available.
By then, BMW are expected to call it the F31 BMW 3 Series Touring and have sorted out the xDrive offer and all those trim levels we’ve seen on the sedan.
