So it appears that BMW have outdone themselves with the new 3 Series Touring wagon.
If you’ve ever been to Europe, you’ll notice that the touring models (station wagons for us) are everywhere. With the new Touring boot, space is the key feature with 495 litres (1500 litres with 40:20:40 split rear seats are lowered) when it arrives in August. The engines which will be accompanying that massive boot will be the 328i (Petrol), 320d and 330d (Diesel) models.
When compared directly to the previous generation the new vehicle will be longer, lighter and more economical which can only mean good things. In the boot area, there has been careful consideration to practicality with a plethora of hooks, sliding rails, cargo nets/cover and split rear tailgate.
Of course there is also a huge options list including the hands-free tailgate opener and the M Sport options.
When the car launches in Australia in August be sure to watch out for further coverage.
