BMW 3 Series Touring through the ages

Staff writer

BMW has pulled the covers off the latest 3 Series Touring, the estate version of its hugely popular premium saloon.

It gets the same new styling cues, chassis tweaks and powertrains as the saloon model, meaning a plug-in hybrid is set to be available for the estate for the first time. Badged 330e and joining the line-up in the summer of 2020, it will use a four-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor to provide low running costs and emissions.

For BMW fans, the 3 Series Touring is the thinking man's car, adding more practicality to the revered saloon.

Take a look at the video above for the story of the estate version of the 3 Series to date, in advance of the new version's impending debut.
