The first of its kind, now with refined design: The BMW M3 Touring with M xDrive goes to particularly impressive lengths to deliver on the traditional M promise of dynamic flair, agility and precision combined with unrestricted everyday practicality and mile-covering ability. With the extremely powerful M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine, the intelligent all-wheel drive M xDrive system and the M specific suspension, this Touring is one thing above all: a genuine BMW M3 with pure racing DNA.

The 390 kW (530 hp) inline 6-cylinder engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo Technology features superior power delivery and the striking characteristic M engine sound. Two mono-scroll turbochargers, direct High-Precision Injection, fully variable valve control and variable camshaft control ensure outstanding performance at any time. The BMW M3 Competition Touring with M xDrive accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in just 12.4 seconds – a new benchmark.

The engine's design features directly derive from motor racing and include the extremely stiff crankcase, which is manufactured in a sleeveless closed-deck design, the weight-reduced forged crankshaft and the iron coating, which is applied to the cylinder liners in an arc wire spraying process (AWSP). Manufactured in a 3-D printing process, the cylinder head core features an optimised routing of the coolant ducts, something that cannot be realised using conventional metal casting technology. In this way, both weight and temperature management are optimised. Like the cooling system, the oil supply is also aligned to the special demands of racetrack use.

Apart from its prominently flared wheel arches and side skirts, the centre and rear sections of the body incorporate model-specific underfloor bracing elements including a cross-bar, load compartment stiffening measures and a bespoke rear axle subframe with a rigid connection to the body.

It’s also very easy to make use of the BMW M3 Touring’s versatile load-carrying potential thanks to its modern functionality.

Whatever exterior colour is specified for the BMW M3 Touring, its roof will be finished as standard in Black high-gloss. The standard roof rails and the model-specific Gurney air-directing flap on the roof spoiler are painted in the same shade.

Adaptive M suspension.

Excellent dynamics, exceptional roadholding and improved comfort on long journeys: The Adaptive M suspension makes it possible to adjust the damper characteristics to suit any given driving situation, increasing driving dynamics and comfort. In addition to the standard COMFORT setting for increased driving comfort, the SPORT programme offers firmer damper settings, and with SPORT+, the vehicle can be used on the race track.

8-speed M Steptronic sport transmission.

The 8-speed M Steptronic sport transmission with Drivelogic offers numerous shifting options: This ranges from efficient and comfortable to sporty and even racing style with extremely short shift times. Shift manually using the gear lever or the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel, or select one of three automatic programmes using Drivelogic.

M Carbon ceramic brake.

Direct application of force, reduced wear, and corrosion-free: The optional M Carbon ceramic brake delivers braking power more directly. In addition, it contributes to a lower vehicle weight, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The technical equipment is visible through carbon-ceramic brake discs and calipers in the colour Gold metallic on the outside.

M xDrive.

M xDrive with Active M Differential guarantees maximum traction and driving dynamics for everyday driving, as well as at the racetrack. The M specific technology combines the typical agility of a rear-wheel drive with the control of an all-wheel drive. There is a choice between the drive variants 4WD, 4WD Sport and – in DSC-off mode – 2WD.

M Mode.

The M Mode button on the centre console makes it possible to create a particularly purist performance experience in the BMW M3 Touring. When switching from the basic ROAD setting to SPORT mode, the driver assistance systems are deactivated with the exception of the collision warning with braking function and the evasion aid. The TRACK mode, designed for use on the racetrack, completely deactivates the assistance systems.

Integrated M specific braking system.

In addition to saving approximately two kilograms in weight, the integrated M specific braking system provides very high braking dynamics. For a maximum level of individualisation, the driver can choose between "Comfort" and "Sport" brake pedal parameters according to the situation. Depending on the parameters, the response behavior is designed differently. In "Sport" mode, deceleration is higher with the same distance of pedal travel particularly at low speeds while the response of the two parameter settings is very similar at high speeds.
