All-New BMW M3 Touring Review: The One-Car Solution? | Henry Catchpole – The Driver’s Seat

The (G81) Competitors xDrive Touring (to bestow its complete title,) has been one of the most fiercely expected vehicles since the very first images lit up the internet. Those twin aspects of functionality and efficiency are normally manipulated one way or the other in a vehicle, but occasionally there is the tantalizing pledge of overall consistency. Today, Henry looks for to discover if the M3 in wagon/estate/load-lugger form, is that pledge realized.

With exactly the same 503bhp, turbocharged, straight-six S58 engine under the bonnet and power going to all four wheels, the M3 Touring still does 0-62mph in a mere 3.6 seconds – just a tenth of a second slower than an M4 Competition xDrive. The top speed remains restricted to 155mph (although if you select the M Driver's Load then this rises to 174mph.).

In this episode of The Driver's Seat, evaluates the M3 Touring on both on the road, and round the track, to see if the truth measures up to the hype. There are some big skids on the circuit (and then he pops a little shopping in the boot afterwards.) Understanding Henry at this moment, he likewise evaluates the Touring's capability to carry a bicycle, a size 58cm Specialized Tarmac SL5 S-Works (if such things matter to you,) and after that discovers some company in the shape of Otto– the giant teddybear.

Can the new M3 Visiting really handle "The Facility," aka, Audi's RS4 and RS6 Avants? Will it feel lacking, given that the new Mercedes AMG C63 S estate has closer to 700bhp? In a shocking turn of events, will the look of the Ferrari Purosangue in the last few weeks, have made the estate format appear rather 'old hat?'.

Before you start adding things, like the Frozen Portimao Blue metal paint, Carbon ceramic brakes and carbon container seats, the M3 Touring is not low-cost. Priced at just over ₤ 80,000 in the UK (it's not concerning the US. sorry folks,) the car comes with a steep price tag. Nevertheless, it might be viewed as multiple vehicles in one – we can definitely see it being valuable in the dream 5 car garage video game.

Anyhow, we hope you delight in the episode. And if you do, please consider sharing it with someone else that you believe might value it. Thank you.
