First-Ever 2023 BMW M3 Expected To Be Automatic And AWD Only

Although this is the first BMW M3 wagon, there’s still good reason to complain…


  • It therefore will not be offered with a manual transmission and RWD like the sedan.

  • And no, it’s not coming to North America.


BMW has hinted that the G81 M3 touring was going to happen in a recent promotional video and now some details on the awaited wagon have emerged. The fact that such a car will finally and actually exist should be good enough for everyone however, not all are pleased with BMW’s decisions for the super-wagon.

Finally: The All-New BMW M3 And M4

In a nutshell, the Touring will probably be offered in only one trim with one drivetrain setup., unlike its sedan sibling. The M3 wagon will be delivered in Competition trim with BMW’s xDrive AWD and accompanying 8-speed automatic transmission only, according to Car Advice.

As we know, the M3 can be spec’d with RWD and a 6-speed manual transmission however BMW thinks that too few, if any, potential buyers would opt for a three-pedal model. Given that the car will not generate huge volumes, this decision also reduces production expenses for BMW.

As well, it seems as though the US is partially responsible for the single-variant offering as it typically opts for the row-your-own-gears transmission. We suppose it’s best not to look a gift horse in the mouth in this case, even though we’ll never see one on our roads. The first of the new 2023 BMW M3 Touring should be rolling off the assembly line by November of 2022.
