The 2021 BMW M3 Touring has been finalized and confirmed by the German auto manufacturer via a recent press release. The auto giant did not release any details regarding the date, price, or features of the car. It is expected that further information will be released later this year.
Fortunately, we can predict the specifications and features of the upcoming car based on the previous model. The BMW M3 is most likely to have a regular model while a Competition package will also make an appearance. Consumers will be able to choose between the standard rear-wheel drive system or the performance-oriented all-wheel-drive variant.
The German marque is expected to allow consumers to choose from either a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic. It would be interesting to see if BMW gives these options in the M3 Touring model. Since the Touring models are more premium the M3 wagon may only come in an all-wheel-drive option. Petrolheads will be looking at BMW to offer the M3 in a rear-wheel-drive manual option but that looks like a far-fetched idea for now.
BMW is expected to take at least 2 years to finish development on the vehicle. The press release did not state in detail when the period starts and when it will end so for now we cannot make any speculation on the model release date. In any case, we could expect the M3 Touring to come out as a 2022 or 2023 model. Lots of changes can take place by then in terms of technology and performance.
Usually, we see the camouflaged versions testing on roads whenever a car is near its release. Therefore, we would have to wait and see when that happens to be able to predict the exact date of the vehicle’s release. By then, BMW will keep us entertained with the M3 sedan and the M4 Coupe versions. Both these vehicles eyebrow-raisers in their regard.
