The outgoing BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon will be the last of its kind to be sold in North America, as the automaker has no intention of launching its next generation Stateside. A company representative revealed this info to CarBuzz: “BMW of North America has no plans to bring the next generation 3-Series Sports Wagon to the U.S. market.” If the 3-Series Sports Wagon, otherwise known as the 3-Series Touring outside North America, still interests you, then you may want to hurry up and order the current generation. It’s only offered in 330i xDrive guise, with a twin-turbo four-cylinder engine producing 248 horsepower (252 PS / 185 kW) and 258 pound-feet (350 Nm) of torque. It comes with an eight-speed auto and all-wheel drive and has an MSRP of $45,000. Station wagons haven’t been popular with North American consumers for quite some time, but the decision might disappoint some customers, given that BMW is reportedly considering an estate version of the next M3.

Tweet TweetFollowing a series of leaked images with the brand-new 2019 BMW 3-Series Touring last month, the model in question has been seen again on the streets in the back of a trailer, perhaps getting ready for a new round of tests. As we can depict from the new spy photos, the test mule has lost main of its camouflage, leaving instead the rear end covered, which might indicate some additional changes.

The car appears similar to its previous sighting, where it was equipped with the M Sport bodykit that boasts of a deep, wide front intake with smaller ones at each corner. A similar treatment for its side profile and rear-end make a reappearance here. The interior corresponds with what we’ve seen within the G20 sedan, which includes usage of a common gearlever, steering wheel, instrument cluster and infotainment display. Where the G21 will be differentiated from its sedan sibling is in the rear quarters, though images of this section haven’t surfaced just yet. Otherwise, the forthcoming 3 Series station wagon will employ a front occupant cabin that is basically identical to its three-box shaped stablemate, and technical specifications should be close, too. Powertrain options for the G21 should … [Read more...] about SPIED: G21 BMW 3 Series Touring
