This allowed to offer extra room for passengers, to achieve a 35-liter increase in luggage capacity (up to 495 liters) and to balance the overall proportions.
The side view is characterized by a long, slightly curving roofline, a steeply raked D-pillars, and DLOs with a subtly wedge-shaped geometry.
The “Hofmeister kink” counter-swing at the foot of the D-pillar contributing to the dynamic tension.
The rear area is defined by horizontal lines and L-shaped lights set far to the outer edges accentuate the broad face of the wheels and the 48-millimeter wider track.
The rear lights extend well into the sides and integrate two bars of LEDs which allow a slim light design and ensure a recognizable lighting signature.
The increased dimensions allowed to offer additional 17 millimeters to the rear passengers’ knee room and nine millimeters to the headroom.
The interior features a 40:20:40 split/folding rear seat bench and an automatic tailgate with separate rear window opening.
The loading sill is just 62 centimeters from the ground and integrates a stainless steel protective strip. The loading area can be equipped with an adaptive attachment system with variable plug-in elements for the compartment floor.
The BMW 3 Series Touring will be offered with the same choice of trim levels of the Sedan: the new Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line equipment packages. An optional M Sport package will also be available from launch.
