Future BMW M3 Touring (2021) – After the M3 sedan and the M4 coupe, BMW Motorsport intends to decline its label on the whole Series 3 / Series 4 family. Besides the 4 Series convertible, the low sedan named Gran Coupe will also join in, pending the arrival of a Touring station wagon. A first in production, after the failed act of the E46 concept unveiled in 2000, desperately remained a dead letter.
Finally compete with Audi station wagons
If Audi has been able to forge its legend in the field of sports station wagons, since the S2 Before 1994, its German competitors have long been cautious about catapulting their movers. Mercedes decided to do this in 2001, however, by launching the Class C 32 AMG, when BMW will have waited two more decades to decline its M3. Last August, a first photo announced it to us on social networks, in the form of a teaser. We could see the bodybuilding stern of the Serie 3 station wagon, notably equipped with four exhaust outlets, within an impressive black lacquered diffuser.
Only… 510 hp
Since then, we have been able to learn about all the technical characteristics of the new M3 / M4, revealed during September. The M3 Touring station wagon should renew the two power levels available (480 and 510 hp). But only the most extreme variant, called Competition, should make up the French catalog, since it has a Automatic box. The manual transmission, 480 hp, was unfortunately not chosen for France, given the low commercial scores recorded by the previous generation.
Future winning trio
We will have to wait until the during the year 2021 to witness the revelation of this overpowering station wagon. With 510 hp, in France, the BMW M3 Touring intends to take the advantage over theAudi RS4 Avant (450 hp). But the Mercedes-AMG C-Class 63 S, as powerful as the Bavarian model, will certainly give it more trouble.
