For many BMW enthusiasts, the M3 is somewhat a ‘holy grail’ car with all the essentials: power, practicality and a decent price tag (not in Malaysia, however). Soon, there is the New BMW M3 Sedan, slated for world debut in September 2020. Another variant, the M3 Touring (Estate) is joining the M3 line-up, for the first time. We bring you the latest scoop on the M3 sedan, now in its sixth generation.
As an everyday car with sporty attributes, the New M3 has wide axles, large front air intakes and four exhausts to give it that obvious M flavor. The new M3 is said to have a new body design. Further details will be made available nearer to its world premiere.
On the first BMW M3 Touring, the Munich-based marque has revealed much as it is still in the early stage of development process. BMW, however, is testing the Touring edition rigorously on public proving grounds. As with all other BMW M models, the intensive testing and tuning process for the M3 Touring will take place on the Nordschleife Nürburgring.
BMW has most likely increased the wheelbase on the M3 sedan, therefore the cabin and boot space have been expanded somewhat. It seems BMW understood that many of its M3 customers have been requesting for a larger boot. The BMW M3 Touring fulfils the hopes of all those who wish to take the M-specific interplay of racing-oriented performance and everyday suitability to the extreme. Never before has a premium mid-range class estate car offered so much driving fun and precision. Nor was there ever more functional utility available in a thoroughbred sports car.
The M3 will feature a 6-cylinder M TwinPower turbo engine, as always. But, you’d expect BMW to maximize the power output and maximum torque.
