The Debut of The BMW M3 Touring will Occur on June 23

The debut of the M3 estate version at Goodwood is part of BMW’s M performance division’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

This month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom, BMW will reveal the M3 Touring (wagon), the first-ever estate version of the M3. The news comes nearly two years after BMW revealed it had given the go-ahead for a Mercedes-AMG C63 estate rival based on the G80-generation BMW M3, which will go on sale in 2020.

BMW M3 Touring 2022: Design

Following the debut of the new BMW 2 Series at last year’s event, this is the German firm’s second high-profile Goodwood unveiling in as many years. Many styling features of the BMW M3 Touring (wagon) are shared with the M3 sedan, but the 3 Series Touring-style body is a notable difference. The sharp rear bumper, as well as the four exhaust pipes that bookend a large diffuser, are carried over from the M3 sedan. Above the rear windscreen is a 3D-printed lip spoiler, with roof rails extending to the front.

The front end, like the back, is largely unchanged from the standard M3, with a double kidney grille, bonnet bulges, and large intakes toward the edges.

The car is one of several upcoming M models as the performance sub-brand celebrates its 50th anniversary, including a new M2 Competition coupé, the lightweight M4 CSL coupé, and the 740hp XM SUV.

Although flared arches, large air intakes, and a sports exhaust system distinguish the M3 Touring from the 3 Series Touring, it is distinguished by flared arches, large air intakes, and a sports exhaust system. For the first time, BMW will have a direct competitor to the long-running Audi RS4 Avant.

Expected Powertrains for The BMW M3 Touring in 2022

The M3 estate’s technical specifications have yet to be revealed, but BMW has confirmed that it will be powered by its turbocharged six-cylinder petrol M engine. The mechanicals and powertrain of the M3 Touring are expected to be shared with the M3 sedan and M4, where the 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged, in-line S58 engine produces 473hp in standard form.

BMW claims that the estate will have the same amount of space and capacity as the regular 3 Series Touring. The car will fulfill “all those who wish to take the M-specific interplay of racing-oriented performance and everyday suitability to the extreme,” according to the brand.

Despite the fact that BMW has never offered an M3 Touring in the 34-year history of the M3, a feasibility study prototype based on the third-generation model was produced in 2000. BMW has also offered a Touring version of the larger BMW M5 on models produced from 1992 to 1995 and 2006 to 2010. The unveiling of the new M3 Touring is part of BMW’s M performance division’s 50th anniversary celebrations, which will take center stage at this year’s Festival of Speed.
