Q&A – BMW M3 TOURING.

M Inside: We ask the experts.

Hagen Franke, Product Manager BMW M3 Touring and Robert Pilsl, Project Head BMW M3 Touring, are already looking forward to the launch of the new M automobile. As true product experts, both had a lot to consider during the car’s development stages. We spoke to them.

 

What makes the new BMW M3 Touring stand out from your point of view?
Hagen: Like no other car, the new BMW M3 Touring will represent the fascination of superior driving dynamics and practicability and the larger space on offer in an estate car concept in a very competitive segment. In doing so, it will, typically for a BMW M3, be nothing less than the benchmark for driving dynamics in a vehicle with five seats, five doors and greatly increased stowage space.

“The BMW M3 Touring is unique. Uniquely dynamic. Uniquely uncompromising. Unique in character.”
Hagen Franke, Product Manager BMW M3 Touring

High performer or family member, king of the curves or touring companion, sports car or cargo champion? What is the BMW M3 Touring?
Robert: First and foremost, it’s a BMW M3 – with all the qualities of driving dynamics and characteristics that have represented this model series for several generations. This is supplemented by the typical BMW, flexibly usable Touring concept characteristics. But it will definitely be more a racehorse than a workhorse.

Let’s look at the user value: What can you get into the boot of the BMW M3 Touring?
Robert: A few crates of drinks, a grille and other party utensils. Sports stuff, equipment like a mountain bike, surf board, skis. Kids, including a pram and about 30 balloons. If necessary even a washing machine.

For what type of driver was the BMW M3 Touring developed?
Hagen: For us and anyone who likes dynamic, autonomous driving on highways and motorways or just the everyday joy of taming the urban jungle. In short, for everyone for whom there isn’t quite enough space available in the BMW M3 Sedan and the seating position in the X3 M is too high.

What’s the best thing about the new M3 Touring?
Robert: That’s easy: the driver’s seat!
Hagen: If I had to choose a characteristic, it would probably be the rear end with the wider wheel housings.

Can the M3 Touring keep pace with the M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupé in terms of dynamics?
Robert: Wait and see!
Hagen: I’ll just say this: The M3 Touring will get a tailgating warning if it gets too close to its sister models.

“The first M3 Touring contains all the know-how and the technology from the current BMW M3 and M4 family. Starting with the 510 hp motor, the M specific axles, from the wide tyres which are ideal for the driving dynamics to the wide-body chassis – everything that belongs in a proper BMW M3.”
Robert Pilsl, Project Head BMW M3 Touring

HISTORY.

The Touring models from BMW M – high-performance by tradition.

A high-performance M automobile combined with the variability of a Touring model? This idea excited the engineers at BMW M already back in the mid-1980s. After an elaborate development phase, BMW M presented the first BMW M5 Touring to the world in 1992. The public was thrilled: No competitor model in this class had the performance of the M automobile, which was largely hand-built in Garching by Munich.
The fourth generation of the BMW M5 was the first Touring to bear the M badge after an interruption of twelve years. The model with the legendary 10-cylinder engine and 507 hp was already a sports car for individualists as a sedan – as a Touring it achieved rarity status.
In 2000, the M GmbH presented the BMW M3 Touring Concept. With its concept designed for maximum dynamics, the prototype was a pointer to the future.

    Official data on power consumption and electric range were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For newly type-tested vehicles since 01.01.2021, the official data no longer exist according to NEDC, but only according to WLTP.
