This past weekend, BMW unveiled the 2013 3 Series Touring. Built on the same platform as the F30 sedan, the new Sports Touring offers the flexibility and utility one would expect from a premium wagon combined with the driving dynamics of a sport sedan.

The new 3 Series Sports Touring is slightly larger than its predecessor, most notably its wider track (front + 37 mm/1.46 in., rear + 48 mm/1.85 in.). The car’s length (+ 97 mm/3.66 in.) and wheelbase (+ 50 mm/1.96 in.). Due to the increased size, nearly ten percent more cargo volume both with the rear seats up and when folded.  The rear seats can be folded down in three sections in a 40:20:40 split. The large through-loading facility allows the new 3 Series Sports Wagon to carry four adults and longer items, such as skis or snowboards, at the same time.

The new 3 Series Sports Wagon will be the next model to offer BMW Lines as a way to tailor the car to individual tastes, just as with the Sedan, by choosing from a trio of trim and equipment variants – the Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line. For the enthusiast who wants to go beyond even the Sport Line, the M Sport Line will also be offered because it is, after all, a BMW 3 Series at its heart.

The new BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon will launch in Europe later this year and is set to arrive in US showrooms in Spring 2013. Powertrain details for the US as well as pricing, specifications and standard/optional equipment will be announced at a later date.

    A RWD 335i version would be great! I have no need for awd.

    98% of the people don’t need AWD in a BMW yet, BMWNA thinks the wagon is only sellable in an AWD version. They get this idea from Subaru, the biggest wagon mover.
    I have an E39 wagon and would love this new 3 in a 320diT version with the 8 spd auto. That car would be a perfect replacement for the old trusty 528iT.
    The 2.0l diesel is not coming so I would settle for the 328iT but according to a lot of sources we will only get the AWD version.
    The E61 was sold as AWD only and sold in marginal numbers. BMW used that to say no more 5 series wagon for the US. Well, BMW… take the AWD out and sell the wagons with a better then base engine and you will have a larger number.
    The 335iT with a manual will sell marginally but the 8spd auto would do better. The 6spd manual or DCT would create a niche model for sure, specially if the //M package would be available for it.
    Audi’s RS versions were only available in a wagon format for many years and they were so popular in Europe they could not make enough.

    Offer a wagon in RWD configuration, with the option of a manual and sports package, and i’ll be in line.
    Its a shame, BMW assumes everyone wants an SUV or the GT. I went in to replace my E39 and dealer just emphasized how the SAV was just as good. I don’t agree.
    It’s a shame really, all manufacturers are foregoing on the wagon markets. With the CAFE rules in place, they would probably get faster results if they gave the options of wagons.
