Thirty two years on from the debut of the first ever BMW 3 Series Touring, the new edition of the five-door 3 Series brings a compelling and seamless blend of driving pleasure and functional appeal to the premium midsize class.
Since its launch in 1987, more than 1.7 million examples of the 3 Series Touring have hit the roads, with the new car’s immediate predecessor alone accounting for more than 500,000 of these.
The new 3 Series Touring will have latest-generation engines and new chassis technology to provide improvements in performance and handling, while intelligent equipment features optimise versatility both in everyday use and on trips away. It also includes the new BMW design language, a refined interior and innovations in control/operation and connectivity.
The sixth generation of the BMW 3 Series Touring will be unveiled to the public for the first time on 25-27 June 2019 via the new BMW Group #NEXTGen presentation platform at BMW Welt in Munich and then it will make its motor show debut at Frankfurt in September. The first UK customer deliveries will get underway from 28 September 2019.
The 3 Series Touring has larger exterior dimensions than its predecessor. It has grown by 76mm to 4,709mm in length, by 16mm to 1,827mm in width and by 11mm to 1,440mm in height. The wheelbase has also been extended by 41mm to 2,851mm, plus 43mm added to the front track (1,587 mm) and 21mm to the rear track (1,604mm).
The Touring matches the nose of the new BMW 3 Series Saloon, and is headlined by a large BMW kidney grille, slim twin headlights and a jutting front apron. The two elements of the BMW kidney grille are framed by a single surround and split up by wide bars. The headlight units extend all the way up to the grille and this familiar look is further emphasised by a notch in the front apron that rises up into the headlight unit contour. Adaptive LED headlights with U-shaped daytime driving lights are standard.
BMW Laserlight featuring blue, L-shaped elements in the inner and outer light sources are optionally available.
