Is the 2023 BMW 3 Series Touring a Good Family Car?

BMW 3 Series Touring is one of the brand’s best overall cars. It accounts for about 20% of all 3 Series sales worldwide. However, sales data shows that the 3 Series Touring makes about 85 percent of 3 Series sales in Germany. The United Kingdom is just one more market that demonstrates a strong preference for sports waggons.

It is one of the best all-around vehicles available thanks to its beautiful but subtle excellent appearance, sporty driving dynamics, luxurious cabin, and waggon practicality. The LCI refresh improved upon its already high quality by modernising its appearance and increasing its technological prowess. The 3 Series Touring features all-new frontal styling, including redesigned headlamps, a new grille, and a reworked lower fascia. The slanted beams of the pre-LCI 3er’s headlights are no more. New in their place is more angular and sporty-looking headlights, like those found on the 4 Series. A redesigned grille with double grille slats, like on an M vehicle, helps to complete the sleeker, more aggressive appearance.

Larger and more streamlined air intakes give the car a more attractive and aggressive appearance than before. When comparing the old pre-LCI car to the new 3 Series Touring LCI, the only noticeable alteration is the addition of a pseudo diffuser to the back bumper. BMW’s newest iDrive 8 system is standard on the 3 Series Touring LCI, and it features a dual-screen configuration that also incorporates a digital gauge display. The 3 Series Touring LCI only differs noticeably inside at the shift lever.

It has a 2.0-litre turbo-four engine producing 190 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This particular setup consists of that motor coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission that drives only the back wheels. The lighter engine allows for a front-mounted transmission and a rear-mounted differential, creating a front- and rear-wheel drive configuration that feels more balanced around turns and increases fuel economy. So, not only is it very fuel-efficient, but it also has the look and feels of a true sports waggon.
