BMW has published a teaser for the “charged” wagon M3 Touring

A teaser for the high-performance BMW M3 Touring has appeared on the official page of the Bavarian company on the social network Instagram. So far, nothing is known about the debut date of the long-awaited novelty.

Only yesterday it became known that the management of BMW “gave the go-ahead” for the production of a high-performance M3 Touring – a versatile version of the popular M3. This will be the first M3 station wagon, but at the same time, our insiders did not talk about when we can see the long-awaited new product. Well, a couple of hours ago, the press service of the BMW M sports brand published a teaser for the M3 Touring on the automaker’s Instagram page.

BMW M has posted one photo of the rear of the M3 Touring, in which much of the car is draped with “dramatic” shadows.

We see the glowing taillights, which are borrowed from the regular 3 Series station wagon (pictured below). They sit above a rather thin rear bumper with a black rear diffuser that houses four exhaust pipes. The shadows hide most of the car’s design details, although we don’t expect it to be much different from the M3 sedan and the regular 3 Series station wagon.

Rumors suggest that BMW will offer the next generation M3 with 480 hp, xDrive all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic. A less powerful Pure version will also be available, which will receive a six-speed manual transmission, 460-horsepower engine and rear-wheel drive. The new M3 in the more powerful Competition version will receive 510 hp.

With BMW talking about the imminent debut of the high-performance M3 Touring ahead of the launch of the M3 sedan and M4 coupe in September, we bet there is a good chance that the M3 Touring will be shown at the same event. We do not know how much the long-awaited novelty will cost, as well as what powertrains it will be available with and, most importantly, when it goes on sale.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that BMW is working on an all-electric M5. BMW is developing a new generation of plug-in hybrid and electric variants of the M5 that will offer incredible power for a family sedan.
