What Car? says...
Before SUVs took over the world, estate cars were the luggage kings, and the BMW 3 Series Touring is one that appeals to drivers while remaining unfazed by the prospect of wardrobe transportation.
This is the sixth generation of the 3 Series Touring and BMW hasn’t strayed far from the time-proven formula of building a sporty estate car with rear-wheel drive. It doesn’t exactly have the market to itself, though, and faces direct competition from the Audi A4 Avant, Mercedes C Class Estate and Volvo V60.
You’ll have your answers over the next few pages of this review, where we'll tell what the Touring is like to drive, what it’s like inside and how much it’ll cost to run. We'll also compare it with the other estate cars you might be considering.
Whichever car you decide is the right one for you, make sure you get it for the best price by checking out the free What Car? New Car Buying service for big savings without any hassle, including lots of BMW 3 Series Touring deals.
