The boot in the 3 Series Touring is around the same size as the Audi A4’s, although both are dwarfed by the Skoda Superb’s. The 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.
There are lashing hooks on the floor and also on the sides of the boot, a couple of cubbies on each side, and a small amount of underfloor storage that’s useful for hiding valuables.
