The wagon is not dead! BMW has unveiled the latest 3 Series Sports
Wagon and announced that it will again be available to U.S. customers.
The new long-roof 3 goes on sale in Europe later this year as the
328i, 330d, and 320d Touring. U.S. customers need to wait until Spring
2013 for the 3 Series Sports Wagon to arrive in showrooms, and
powertrain details for our market have not yet been announced. The
current 3 Series wagon is only offered as the 328i here in the U.S.
(with and without xDrive).
The new car is larger than the current model, and boasts 10 percent
more cargo volume according to BMW. As with the 3 Series sedan, the
wagon will be available in Sport, Luxury, and Modern lines, as well as
an M Sport Line, each with a unique approach to their interior and
Inside, the back seats have a 40:20:40 split, and the cargo space
offers plenty of room (as you can see in the photos). There's also
hidden storage, a standard partition net, and if the cargo cover isn't
in use, it can be stowed under the cargo floor for added convenience.
Amenities include an available power tailgate that, with the optional
Comfort Access package, becomes a hands-free power tailgate; you just
wave your foot under the bumper a la the new Ford Escape. Naturally,
BMW will offer its full complement of tech and driver aids, like BMW
Apps, a color HUD, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, BMW
Parking Assistant, Rear-view Camera with Top View, and the BMW Assist
