2013 BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon revealed, coming to US
If you like the BMW 3-Series, and sport wagons, then there is good news coming out of BMW. The German automaker has just announced that the next-generation 2013 3-Series Sports Wagon will be heading to the U.S. The new BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon will launch in Europe later this year as the 328i, 330d, and 320d Touring. The Sports Wagon is set to arrive on U.S. shores in Spring 2013.
Powertrain details for the U.S. market have not yet been announced, but the current 3 Series wagon is only offered as the 328i here in the U.S. We could see the new Sports Wagon with the 2.0-liter four making 240 hp, a 300-hp 335i with the 3.0-liter turbo six, and a 330d with a 3.0-liter straight-six turbo-diesel making 258 hp.
Car And Driver is reporting that the U.S. market could see a diesel variant when the new Sports Wagon arrives here. Sources at BMW told them, “We haven’t given up on the diesel in the U.S. at all.” There is no information on whether there will be an M performance model, but it could also be a possibility for the sedan and wagon. Transmission options for the 3-Series Wagon include an eight-speed automatic or a sporty six-speed manual. Both transmissions will feature BMW’s Auto Start-Stop technology to help with fuel-efficiency.
