1. The first-ever BMW M3 Touring
2. 6-Cylinder M TwinPower turbo engine
3. Five doors and a highly variable luggage compartment
4. M DNA in a Touring model
5. Development test drives start in August 2020
A 6-cylinder M TwinPower turbo engine beneath the bonnet has been confirmed, while the widened axles, conspicuously large front air intakes and four exhaust tailpipes at the rear leave little doubt that the iconic M DNA will be clear for all to see, even with the car’s new body design. One thing is already certain: the BMW M3 Touring is set to take the combination of racing-oriented performance and everyday practicality to the extreme.
The extensive development process that the new BMW M3 Touring will go through over the next two years is proof that it is first and foremost an M3. The first drives of its intensive testing and tuning programme, which take place on the Nürburgring's Nordschleife, will start in the next few days. They are the prelude to the creation of a premium mid-range class estate car that has never before provided so much driving fun and precision, nor offered more functional utility in a thoroughbred sports car.
