Speeding wagons are coming, but not in the United States

BMW M is creating a combination that is sure to make fans salivate: an M3 wagon.

The car, known as the M3 Turing in most markets where it will be offered, was confirmed about two years ago and has since been regularly tested on some roads in the vicinity of Nবারrburg and German racetrack. The car is related to the latest M3 sedan and M4 coupe and convertible models, and will probably be part of the updated 3-Series family coming in the 2023 model year.

Turing is the name BMW uses for wagons outside the United States, and this new M3 Turing will make the M3 Longroof alternative for the first time. Although M5 has been touring in the past.

But before anyone in the United States opens their wallet, remember that in 2020 BMW spokesman Oleg Satanovsky said Motor authority That “there are no plans to import [the M3 Touring] The 3-Series Wagon was also discontinued in the United States in 2019.

The latest hot wagon battle BMW should have been tempted to bring the M3 Turing to the United States, as Audi has finally brought the RS 6 Avant (speaking for Audi Wagon) to the local showroom for the 2020 model year. Mercedes-Benz AMG also offers an E 63 S wagon in the United States. But sadly, BMW is not moving. Sorry, America.

The M3 Turing will be smaller than both Audi and Mercedes, but it will theoretically reduce their price tag to over $ 100,000. Elsewhere, it will compete directly with the Audi RS 4 Avant and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 Wagon (nee Estate).

Hopefully the BMW M3 Touring will have the same features as the M3 sedan, which means power will come from the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6. For the M3 sedan, the engine delivers 473 hp in standard camouflage and 503 hp in M3 competition camouflage. The standard M3 also comes exclusively with a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive, while the M3 Competition comes exclusively with the choice of 8-speed automatic and rear- or all-wheel drive. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

Interestingly, BMW came close to launching an M3 Turing two decades ago as part of the third generation M3 range. A prototype was created but not approved for production.

Look forward to the debut of the modern M3 Turing soon, probably as part of the BMW M’s 50th anniversary celebrations this May. While the US will miss this car, a hardcore M3 CSL is expected to be on our way soon. We will soon see a standalone BMW M SUV called the XM.
