New images take a closer look at the 3rd car ahead of its planned launch next year.
The next generation BMW 3 Series Touring was photographed again by photographers before joining the newly revealed sedan on the market next year.
In these last photos, we can see that the B-pillar forward is virtually identical to the new Series 3 sedan, while the rear monkeys project the highest 5 Series Touring.
The upper roof line and the more practical amount of the wagon will bring greater load capacity, so expect a volume higher than the 480L quoted by the sedan.
In addition to the obvious design differences, the 3 Series Touring will bring the same improvements and improvements as the sedan, which means it will be underpinned by BMW's new CLAR architecture – which will help save weight – and will have the latest aerodynamics. and greater in driver assistance and active safety technology.
A revised interior will also feature bringing the company's new BMW OS7.0 infotainment software along with high-quality materials and finishes.
Overall, expect a range of turbocharged four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, along with the full or rear-wheel drive option.
In addition to the line of conventional combustion-fueled engines, a 330e hybrid plug-in will almost certainly be offered in wagon form by offering a fully electric range in the vicinity of 60 km per load.
Sitting at the top of the main range will probably be the M340i xDrive with its 275kW / 500Nm 3.0L in-line, six in turbocharger, which should boost the mid-sized wagon to triple the numbers in about 4.5 seconds.
It is not clear if BMW will offer an M3 Touring in this new generation, although it makes sense for the Bavarian brand to profit from the high-power wagon market currently occupied by the Audi RS4 and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate.
It is believed that the new 3 Series Touring is scheduled to be unveiled in the coming months, before the market launch, between mid and late 2019.
