What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The Touring adds practicality to the 3 Series range without sacrificing the saloon’s excellent drive

Against It's not great at carrying big loads and it's expensive on the used market

Verdict It's reasonably practical, has a fine drive and holds its value very well

Go for… 318i

Avoid… 330i

BMW 3 Series Touring
  • 1. The Touring brings only a slight increase in practicality over the saloon
  • 2. Good overall reliability, but watch for suspension failure
  • 3. If you cover high mileages the better economy and greater pull of the diesel car may make it the ideal choice
  • 4. The front seats are comfotable for all, with good adjustment in all directions
  • 5. All engines are tough and reliable, and will last many thousands of miles
