From a recent interview with representatives of the Bavarian brand, it became clear that in the near future, sales of the BMW 3 Series station wagon in the powerful diesel version of the M340d will begin in Europe. No pricing data yet.

BMWBLOG, which, as the name implies, violently follows the fate of the Bavarian brand, reports that at the beginning of 2020, the BMW 3 Series station wagon in the performance of the M340d xDrive will be available to customers. This version will be a diesel alternative to the gasoline M340i pictured here.

Most likely, the novelty will receive a diesel inline six-cylinder unit with a volume of 3.0 liters. It is expected that the engine borrowed from the X3 M40d / X4 M40d crossovers will have the same 321 hp. and a huge torque of 680 Nm.

BMW will allegedly sell the 3 Series Touring M340d exclusively with xDrive all-wheel drive. There are no details about the dynamic characteristics of the new product, but given that the X3 crossover in the M40d version (with the same engine) can accelerate in 4.9 seconds to a speed of 100 km / h, the M340d xDrive Touring wagon will need 4 to overcome the same path, 8 seconds considering the fact that such a car weighs less. If the engine is “transferred” unchanged, this means that the full torque will be applied at 1750 rpm.

  BMWBLOG reports that the most powerful version of the BMW 3 Series station wagon will go on sale in Europe next March, so we can expect a car presentation at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The novelty will probably cost more than the gasoline version of the M340i, which is sold in Germany at a minimum price of 63,250 euros
