After the new generation of the 3-Series was finally unveiled just last month by BMW, the German based automaker has been caught by cameras while testing the Touring version of the model on the famous Nurburgring track.
BMW is preparing the ground for releasing its new Touring model, based on the 2012 3-Series, with the vehicle being caught testing on the Ring in some impressive driving footage. Even if we don’t have any official details about the new 3-Series Touring, the model will definitely be an interesting choice over its eternal rivals at Audi or Mercedes-Benz, and as we can see in the video below, the new generation’s handling has been significantly improved.
As a reminder, the new generation of the 3-Series sedan has been priced at $35.775 in the United States for the entry-level version, while the 2012 BMW 335i will start at $43.275, which is about $1.100 – $1.200 over the last E90 3-Series sedan, being also larger and more spacious than the model it replaces. The German based automaker has downsized its engines for the 2012 model which is also helping the company to save some money on the production line.
There’s no official word yet on the new BMW 3-Series Touring but the model might be presented sometimes next year, during an international automotive event like the Detroit Motor Show or even the Paris Auto Show.
