The 3 Series Touring is proof that estate cars needn’t look dowdy. As with other models in the range, this one is very easy on the eye, with body-coloured fixtures that subtly enhance your paint finish of choice, and chrome touches that add extra lustre.
The 3 Series Tourer improves on the interior space offered by either the Mercedes C-Class or the Audi A4 Avant, offering more legroom in the process, even for rear-seated travellers. Three child seats can be secured across the back row too. Boot space, meanwhile, stands at a minimum 500 litres.
A standard-issue 2.0-litre petrol engine offers a good balance of power and efficiency. This 156bhp unit delivers 0-60mph in approximately 8.5 seconds, up to 42.2mpg and CO2 emissions from 152g/km. The greenest choice is a 2.0-litre 190bhp diesel engine, which returns as much as 57.6mpg while producing emissions from just 127g/km. It’s worth noting that this engine also enables the car to go from 0-60mph in a shade less than seven seconds. The most potent option available is a 3.0-litre 374bhp petrol unit, which produces 500Nm of torque and 0-60mph in roughly 4.3 seconds.
With the car’s standard-issue six-speaker sound system, you and your fellow travellers won’t be lacking in audio-entertainment options. Included is an AM/FM radio – and a DAB tuner that offers a wide range of stations in crystal-clear sound quality. You can also plug-and-play your portable devices via the supplied AUX and USB inputs, while Bluetooth connectivity makes it easy to stream your favourite audio content. Getting to your destination as quickly as possible is simpler than ever, thanks to an 8.8-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, which can be voice-activated and features 3D mapping and real-time traffic updates.
