BMW has confirmed an M3 Touring will be offered for the first time in the history of the M brand.
A teaser image was released overnight showing the rear of the wagon which will give BMW a competitor to cars like the Audi RS4 Avant.
Power will come from a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder unit that will feature on the M3 sedan and M4 coupe and convertible. It’s tuned to produce 375kW and 600Nm.
Like the sedan, expect the M3 Touring to pack an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
BMW has previously flirted with the idea of an M3 Touring, the brand briefly looked at developing a Touring version of the E46 M3 back in 2000.
More details about the new M3 range will be released in due course.
Update: BMW Australia has confirmed the M3 Touring will be offered locally.
