What's the used BMW 3 Series estate like?

The BMW 3 Series Touring is every bit as good to drive as the saloon version. Despite being heavier than the saloon, this estate is extremely agile.

The car's superb dynamics are not at the expense of comfort, although some may find it a touch too firm at low speeds – especially with the optional Sports suspension.

The interior offers enough head and leg room for tall passengers, and comes with BMW's typical attention to detail and build quality.

The boot isn't as generous as those of some estates in the class, but it's still a good size. The rear seats fold down flat, but the wheelarches intrude into the loadspace.
