As far as styling goes, the G21 3 Series Touring is a looker. The new G20-gen design language works well with a long-roof body style. the Touring gets a more traditional Hofmeister Kink that looks better than the arrow-like one on the 3 Series sedan.
Up front, the G21 3 Series Touring is the same as its sedan counterpart. So in Luxury Line spec, the 3 Series Touring still gets the same horizontal “T” shape fog-light housings.
In M Sport guise, the 3er gets larger, more aggressive air intakes in place of those NACA-style fog-lights. You also get black Shadowline trim around the windows and black roof rails. Whether or not you like the M Sport package more, it’s certainly more aggressive looking. So if you want your 3 Series Touring to look like a sport sedan, get the M Sport package.
Depending on the market, the new 3er Touring comes with up to five powertrain options, including gas and diesel units. The most potent is a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 featuring in an M340i xDrive, with the engine delivering 382 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
