2013 BMW 3-Series Wagon Slated For North America

News regarding the release of coupe, convertible and wagon variants will soon follow after the release of the all-new BMW 3-series.

Although the wagon is a less popular choice for 3-series purchasers in North America, sources confirmed that the wagon, known as the BMW 3-series Touring, will make it to our shores eventually. There was some speculation that it might not, after BMW dropped the 5 Series Touring in North America in favor of the 5 Series GT. That vehicle has subsequently been a flop and BMW is looking to reintroduce the 5er wagon to the U.S.

No date has been set, but the new 3 Series Touring will be available in Europe late 2013. Coupe and Convertible variants will be released later as well, while the outgoing E92 coupes are to be sold alongside the new sedan until replacements arrive. Rumors have suggested the coupe and convertible models could wear the ‘4 Series’ badge.

In addition, BMW has hinted that the 3 Series diesel may return to the U.S. as well. A 335d wagon? Now wouldn’t that be nice!

    Replacing the 5-Series Wagon with a GT model was a bad move by BMW. I haven't found a crossover I really like, and I don't like SUV's at all because some people can't drive them properly. Bring back the 5-Series wagon here ASAP. Thank you.

    "No date has been set, but the new 3 Series Touring will be available in Europe late 2013" You mean "late 2012", right?
