It’s easy to see out of the front of the 3 Series Touring thanks to its relatively narrow windscreen pillars, while the door mirrors give a good view of what’s drawing-up alongside. Blindspot warning and a head-up display are options that help keep your eyes on the road ahead.
As in many saloons, the over-the-shoulder view is hampered by the car’s thick rear pillars, but all 3 Series Tourings come with rear parking sensors, so this isn’t such a problem. You can also add front parking sensors, a surround-view camera and a reversing camera to make things even easier.
Automatic lights and wipers are standard, and you can upgrade the headlights to adaptive LED units, although it’s a pricey option.
Folding rear headrests are a cheap option that you should definitely add. The standard versions obscure much of the rearward view when in position.
