After being partially revealed in a lot of teasers, the BMW M3 Touring finally breaks cover internationally. The brand has unveiled the new M3 Touring in an estate style that looks quite similar to the M3 sedan at the front.
The BMW M3 Touring gets a large kidney grille, muscular bonnet and vent like the standard M3 sedan. Styling changes include new rear doors, flatter roof, extended glasshouse and new rear quarter panels. However, the tail-lamps and rear bumper are carried from the BMW M3 sedan. The car sits on 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch wheels at the rear with track tyres as optional.

At the front, it gets electrically-adjustable and heated seats with M Sport lettering as well as upgradation to M Carbon bucket seats as optional.

At the heart, the BMW M3 Touring makes use of a S58 twin-turbo inline-six cylinder engine that churns out a peak power of 510 hp and a max torque of 650 Nm, similar to the M3 Competition. The engine is mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The AWD system comes as standard, however customers can configure the car by changing the drive mode for more power delivery.
BMW claims that the M3 Touring sprints from 0-100 kmph in barely 3.6 seconds and offers a top speed of 250 kmph.
BMW M3 Touring marks the latest M model to debut from BMW in 2022. The brand has confirmed that India too will receive M and M Sport models later this year.
