Zapping Autonews Green Electric cars: the news of the year 2022

It’s time for a double restyling at BMW. Like the sedan, the 3 Series Touring underwent a mid-race restyling. Three years after its introduction, this variant of the Series 3 station wagon receives a well-deserved facelift, which will allow it to continue its career for a few more years.

In terms of design, the 3 Series Touring adopts the same developments as the sedan. There are narrower, elongated LED headlights with an inverted L-shaped light signature and blue inserts that indicate the car has long adaptive headlights. The double grille grille has been redesigned, now consisting of chrome-plated double bars. The front bumper has been redesigned to have a more sculpted style, especially around the air intakes. The side window surrounds feature the glossy black M Shadowline treatment.

Several new colors have been added to the catalog

On its rear side, the 3 Series Touring adopts the same modifications as the sedan.

BMW has painted more of this rear with the color of the body. Exhaust pipes are now between nine and ten centimeters in diameter.

The van is also available in the new metallic colors Frozen Tanzanite Blue, Frozen Pure Gray, Skyscraper Gray or M Brooklyn Gray.

The biggest addition to this restyling is necessarily the introduction of the BMW curved screen aboard the 3 Series Touring.

The dashboard is transformed, with this large curved slab that breaks down into a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 14.9-inch center touch screen.

Equipped with the BMW iDrive information and entertainment system, the latter offers a voice assistant, but also the integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone replication systems.

According to BMW, the load volume of the rupture does not change.

Plug-in diesel and hybrid in the program
