[VIDEO] BMW M3 Touring Defies Expectations in Speed Test

As BMW’s true all-rounder, the M3 Touring comes at a premium. The G81’s perfect blend of speed, power, utility, luxury, and advanced tech make it a crowd favourite. Despite its absence from North American markets, its popularity has caused the M division to ramp up production beyond initial plans.

A fresh video spotlights the highly anticipated M3 Touring’s linear performance. BMW, based in Munich, rates this power-packed wagon’s 0-62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration at 3.6 seconds. Yet, in classic BMW fashion, they’ve modestly undervalued this rapid estate. The CarExpert team from Australia got top results by engaging the most aggressive settings and turning off the stability control.

The G81 stunned everyone, hitting 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in a brisk 3.47 seconds. Impressively, it clocked a mere 2.12 seconds accelerating from 80 to 120 km/h (50 to 75 mph). That’s quite a feat for an ICE car weighing a hefty 4,111 pounds (1,865 kilograms). If BMW brings back the M5 wagon for a third round, expect a beefier, more potent high-performance Touring to hit the stage.

The xDrive stands out with its bespoke 2WD option for an exhilarating ride. The large rear 285/30 ZR20 tyres, perfect for a stationary burnout, showcase that even large wagons can masterfully drift in rear-wheel drive. In a braking test, the Thundernight Metallic-clad M3 Touring went from 62 mph (100 km/h) to a halt in a mere 3.1 seconds and 36.79 meters (120.7 ft). Quite impressive!

If the M Driver’s Package is installed, BMW claims the G81 can reach high speeds of 174 mph (280 km/h) or 155 mph (250 km/h). However, have you ever pondered how quickly the vehicle can reverse? The answer, however, is 25 mph (40 km/h).
