Great news for lovers of the BMW brand and sports station wagons. The German company has officially announced the arrival of the BMW M3 Touring, the first M3 in the station wagon category. Let’s analyze the characteristics, the technical datasheet, and the launch prices.
BMW M3 Touring: the characteristics
Aggressive and sporty at the same time, the BMW M3 Touring promises to satisfy the tastes of lovers of comfort and high-performance cars. The basic kit, in fact, features the rear spoiler, a particularly important bumper in which there are four tailpipes, the splitter, and the double kidney front grille in glossy black. If you are looking to get this car, we advise you to test drive in your local dealership. If you end up liking it, you can start making plans in buying it. If you need to sell your car first, you can contact trade cars for cash. You will receive top cash for cars in Sydney.
The performances are very interesting: the M3 Touring will be able to reach a top speed of 290 km / h, almost a record for a station wagon, and it will take less than 4 seconds to get from 0 to 100 km/h.
The technical sheet
The BMW M3 Touring will be equipped with the 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo engine that characterizes the M3 series and which develops 480 hp in the base models and 510 hp in the competition ones. In both engines, the torque will be 600 Nm while the gearbox will be automatic with eight speeds.
The transmission will be the all-wheel-drive M xDrive with the differential placed on the rear axle.
With this configuration, the M3 Touring can travel four-wheel drive in 4WD mode. In sport mode, on the other hand, more torque is sent to the rear while deactivating the stability control switches to purely rear-wheel drive.
The BMW M3 Touring will be officially presented in the course of 2021 and should arrive in dealerships around the first months of 2022. The introductory price for the base model should be around 100,000 euros.
The goal of the Munich-based company is to enter a market, that of high-performance station wagons, currently manned by the Audi RS4 and the Mercedes C 63 Class.
