The boot is around the same size as that in the Audi A4 Avant, although both are dwarfed by the Superb Estate’s. The 3 Series Touring’s rear wheel arches cut into the boot a bit more, making it a slightly more awkward shape than the A4’s. The opening is narrower, too. That said, it can accept a couple of pushchairs or chunky suitcases with relative ease.
The rear windscreen opens independently of the bootlid, giving access the boot if you’re in a rush or are restricted by a low ceiling from opening the bootlid to its fullest extent.
The rear seats can fold to create a virtually flat load deck up to the backs of the front seats, although the width of the floor isn’t especially great by class standards.
There are lashing hooks on the floor and on the sides of the boot, as well as a couple of cubbies on each side and a small amount of underfloor storage that’s useful for hiding valuables.
