BMW M3 Wagon Coming: Report

Could an M3 Wagon finally be in the cards? This report says yes, yes it could

  • M3 and Touring have never been combined before

  • How does a 500 hp family hauler sound to you?


BMW has never actually built a Touring version of the company’s M3 (BMW code for Wagon), but a new report from BMW Blog says that there might be one coming after all. Just don’t hold your breath, because it might not be until after 2023, and there’s still a good chance it’ll never come to the U.S. or Canada.

The site says that “a trusted source”, presumedly inside the company, has told them that the BMW M3 Touring has been given the production green light. That means that it could come to market sometime after 2023.

While BMW already offers an M version of their X3 and X4 crossovers, sporting a 503 hp turbocharged inline-six, the company has never applied the M treatment to the 3 Series Touring. Since they’ve made an M5 wagon a few times, it’s a bit of a surprise that BMW has never done the same to the smaller and better-selling three.

This still isn’t official, BMW Blog points out, but they do have a great deal of confidence in their source. While we love the idea of a 500 hp M3 with some extra cargo space in the back, the massive sales success of the taller and heavier X3, combined with the relatively low popularity of wagons in North America, could make this one a bit of a tough sell to execs, dealers, and customers here. Wagons are still extremely popular in Europe, even outselling their sedan counterparts in some instances and countries.

So there’s a possibility of a rear-drive BMW M3 Touring coming to market, or maybe it would be all-wheel drive only, but you might not want to hold your breath as far as picking one up at your dealer soon.
