BMW M3 Touring Will Probably Look Like This Render, Drifting Included

It’s confirmed. BMW will manufacture an official long-roof version of the M3 sedan called the M3 Touring. When officially released, it will be the first high-performance M3 wagon that BMW sells, aimed at the popularity of powerful but practical carriers in Europe – more likely to take on the Audi RS4 Avant. There was an M3 Touring in the early 2000s, but it was never officially sold.

The official release a few days ago revealed some details about the M3 Touring. The problem is, that won’t be revealed with the M3 sedan and M4 coupe next month, as they are still in the early stages of a two-year development process.

BMW M3 Touring renderings are inevitable, and one of the first to make it into one was Magnus that goes through the Instagram handle zer.o.wt. You can see his render through the image at the top of this page, and we’ve also integrated his Instagram post above which shows a sharper take.

Of course, the huge grille will more likely overtake the M3 sedan than its five-door counterpart – except that the latter is longer and more practical in terms of cargo space. The rear wheel drivetrain isn’t overdone, but don’t be surprised if the xDrive system will be involved.

BMW confirms that the M Division will test the M3 Touring at the Nürburgring, and it’s only a matter of time before we see a prototype test underway. Wait to bring you spy photographs and videos of any sightings, as we always do.

As for the engine, the official BMW-M website lists an M TwinPower six-cylinder turbo engine as the powertrain of choice for the M3 Touring. We’ll hear more details in the coming months. After all, two years is a long wait.
