It's official: 2013 BMW 3-Series Touring revealed

The new generation of the BMW 3-Series Touring has been recently revealed by the German based automaker, becoming available for the moment as the 328i, 320d and 330d.

According to the car manufacturer, the new generation of the BMW 3-Series Touring, which will wear the 2013 model year in its name, is 97 mm longer than the sedan and its wheelbase is also 50 mm longer compared to the F30. For an easier access to the trunk, the rear window can be opened separately and the storage space has grown by 35 liters to a total of 495 liters. The luggage compartment can be separated to the passenger space with a net and under the floor of the trunk an extra storage space is available.

BMW says that the 2013 3-Series Touring will become available, at start, as the 328i, 330d and 320d, which means that its future customers, who don’t want to wait for other versions to hit the market, will have to choose between a petrol burner and two diesels. All three units are using the TwinPower Turbo technology and the 328i is coming with four cylinders and 245 HP at 5,000 rpm, allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).

The 320d diesel is coming with 184 horsepower, available from 4,000 rpm, and 380 Nm of torque at 2,750 rpm. The 320d Touring can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 230 km/h. More power is being offered by the 330d version, which is coming with 250 HP and 560 Nm of torque available between 1,500 and 3,000 rpm. The 330d Touring can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h.

All three engines are meeting the Euro 5 emission standard and, if necessary, the 2.0 liter diesel engine can be modified in order to comply with the Euro 6 emission standards. According to the German based car manufacturer, three more version will hit the market soon, the 320i (184 HP@ 5,000 rpm), the 318d (143 HP @ 4,000 rpm and 320 Nm) and the 316d (116 HP @ 4,000 rpm and 260 Nm).

The 2013 BMW 3-Series Touring will be available with the M Sport suspension or with the M Sport adaptive suspension as an option and the model will hit the market in three trim levels: Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line. The new generation of the BMW 3-Series Touring will arrive in Europe’s showrooms later this year and in the United States in spring 2013. In Europe, the new generation of the BMW 3-Series is expected to start at just over 25,000 euros for the entry-level version.
