It’s officially back, the new 3 Series Sport Wagon debuted yesterday, and will be in showrooms this coming spring. This model will have the new 4 cylinder turbo engine mated to an 8 speed automatic transmission and comes in all the trim forms of the current 328i sedan. These trim lines are of course the Sport, Modern, and Luxury lines, but BMW has also announced the introduction of an M Sport line to this trim. This new M Sport package is designed specifically for this model series. It includes the lowered M Sport suspension, featuring a 10 millimeter drop in ride height, firmer suspension and damping, and larger anti-roll bars. Also featured are 18 or 19-inch M alloy wheels. The package also has a distinctive M aerodynamic package with special body parts, chrome tailpipes, exclusive exterior paintwork and interior trim to match. An Adaptive M Sport suspension with electronically controlled damping is also optionally available for the new BMW 3 Series Sport Wagon.
In addition to all of those features, the 3 Series Sport Wagon will also feature x-Drive all-wheel-drive. We drove the new 328i x-Drive, and we liked it. You can read about it here.
So what do we think readers? Is this a car that BMW needs?
