BMW has unveiled the new 3 Series Sports Wagon. The new long-roof 3 Series goes on sale in Europe later this year as the 328i, 330d, and 320d Touring. North-American buyers need to wait until Spring 2013.
The new 3 Series Sports Wagon is larger than the current one, and boasts 10 percent more cargo volume. The new wagon will be available in Sport, Luxury, and Modern lines, as well as an M Sport Line, each with a unique approach to their interior and exterior trim.
Inside, the back seats have a 40:20:40 split and the cargo space offers plenty of room. There’s also hidden storage, a standard partition net, and if the cargo cover isn’t in use, it can be stowed under the cargo floor for added convenience.
Amenities include an available power tailgate that, with the optional Comfort Access package, becomes a hands-free power tailgate. Naturally, BMW will offer its full complement of tech and driver aids, like BMW Apps, a color HUD, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, BMW Parking Assistant, Rear-view Camera with Top View, and the BMW Assist telematics service.
