The next BMW 3 Series Touring could receive a sport version M
The BMW 3 Series seventh generation is about to reach the market. The average sedan of the Bavarian manufacturer is one of the most demanded in the market. For this reason, it will not be long between the official presentation and your arrival at the concessionaires. However, for the family Touring body to be unveiled, we will still have to wait a bit, maybe for the next Geneva Motor Show .
Be that as it may , the new BMW 3 Series Touring will arrive loaded with new features. We already know that at the aesthetic level the evolution is not very big, but due to technology, dynamic behavior and quality, it will once again be at the top of the segment. However, to the possible "trinkets" that may arrive, it seems that a very interesting one will be added: a sport version "M" .
We recently discovered its appearance thanks to the filtering of its patent . In the snapshots, which will vary little with respect to the final model, we could see that it incorporated a double escape exit. At first, it is not something that makes us distrust, but according to the rumors there would be reasons. According to the gossips, the next BMW 3 Series Touring could have a vitamin version.
What could we expect from these rumors?
According to the rumor mill, BMW would be working to create a model with which to stand up to the Audi RS4 Avant and Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate . If true, it would be the first relative of the brand to incorporate a version signed by the "M" division. In addition, we must bear in mind that in this generation there will be no GT bodywork version, so it would not be unreasonable to launch it.
For the development of the hypothetical BMW 3 Series Touring "M"strong> the engineers of the brand would have half the way walked. The reason is that the new platform is more flexible than the previous one and the engine would already be updated. However, the costs to carry out the project would be affordable and therefore, the brand would be about to give its blessing. The only problem we see is that it could overlap with the Series 4 Gran Coupé.
We will have to wait for these rumors to become news. In any case, it would not be crazy for BMW to get involved in this war.
