Holy crap, BMW is actually making an M3 wagon – Roadshow

That is occurring.


Earlier this week some rumors surfaced on-line that BMW may truly, lastly, for actual this time produce a wagon model of the upcoming next-gen M3, one thing that the M model has by no means beforehand achieved. Effectively, it now seems that’s positively occurring, as simply minutes in the past the BMW M Instagram account posted a teaser picture exhibiting an M3 Touring’s rear finish with the caption “Mic Drop.”

From the teaser we are able to see a brand new rear bumper with an aggressive diffuser housing 4 massive exhaust suggestions, however not a lot else. It looks as if the M3 Touring will get a wider physique in comparison with the standard 3 Series Touring, one thing that has beforehand been prohibitive to the creation of a manufacturing facility wagon M3. And sure, the Touring will seemingly have the identical gigantic kidney grilles because the M3 sedan and M4 coupe. Sorry.

When it comes to efficiency, count on the M3 Touring to match the specs of the sedan, which BMW laid out final month. The M3 could have a turbocharged in-line-six making 480 horsepower in “base” kind and 510 horsepower in Competitors trim, with the latter getting an non-compulsory all-wheel drive system. If I needed to guess — and that is actually my job — I would count on the M3 Touring to be AWD-only, and it most likely will not get the usual handbook transmission that the bottom M3 sedan could have. 

The M3 sedan and M4 coupe will make their debuts subsequent month, however we do not but know when the Touring can be revealed. It’ll seemingly observe the sedan by a few months, most likely debuting concurrently the M4 convertible. Now do not get your hopes up, People. We aren’t even getting the wagon model of the common three Sequence within the US, so there may be virtually zero likelihood the M3 Touring will come to our shores. Nonetheless, it is good to dream, proper? And we’ll be capable to import one in 25 years, at the very least…
