A New Dimension. The First BMW M3 Touring.

BMW M and Markus Flasch have officially confirmed the existence of the first ever M3 Touring.

12. Aug 2020

Never say never: here is an exclusive first look at a completely new model from BMW M – the BMW M3 Touring. Ahead of the world premiere of the new BMW M3 Sedan and the new M4 Coupé, BMW M is taking its range to the next dimension. The combination of M specific high performance, an increase in available interior space and the intelligent functionality of a Touring model make the BMW M3 G81 a very special vehicle.

5 POWERFUL FACTS:
  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 Power in a Touring model
  5. Test drives start in August 2020

M TYPICAL APPEARANCE.
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.


INTENSIVE TESTING STARTS NOW.
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.

Whilst I am not looking forward to the design, it's about time BMW are doing something good with the range rather than all the X3M, X4M's, CS's, etc.

Love the message this sends that niche cars and projects are still alive and well at M. That said I won’t be getting it. There was a time when mid size M wagons were my dream family cars but no more. Very cool car though

Delicious! Maybe BMW's answer to the American SUV craze is to reintroduce how fun wagons/estates can be!

Sidenote: Haha hopefully this becomes the fastest estate on the Ring!

Yes, these type of wagons are capable. I have very fond memories sitting with my dad and cheering on Rickard Rydell in BTCC in his wagon

Seems like it's time to put my money where my mouth is in a few years...assuming

1) BMW LCI (or aftermarket) correct course on the grille design;
2) 6MT option; and
3) comes to NA.

Optimistic about #1 (at least the aftermarket sector)....less so on #'s 2&3

Markus Flasch who was previously at Audi quattro GmbH, known for fast station wagons, goes to BMW M and suddenly they're making all-wheel drive M wagons now too? Well, who would've thought.

Nobody likes/wants/needs/buys wagons here in the US. That wagon better stays in Europe.

I wonder which parts of the world will have the touring available, certainly doesn't seem like AU get many of the touring models either...

If it comes to the states, I will buy one. On one condition though, it can't have the stupid grills.
