Upgrade BMW 3 Series TouringThe cabin has added a welcome boost in technology and interior quality to its already excellent driving dynamics. It’s as practical as many people will need, and this 320d would be a great choice for anyone after a comfortable, spacious road trip. We look forward to trying the BiK-busting plug-in hybrid in the near future.
The asset version of 3 series accounts for about half of the model’s sales in Germany, but only 10% in the UK. It’s an odd stat that has the ability to stay in place, even after 3 Series Travel get the same worthy updates as the saloon.
Indeed, you could argue that the 320d Touring we’re testing here is a good case for two lost causes – body style and diesel engine. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder produces 187hp and 400Nm of peak torque, taking the car from 0-62mph in 7.1 seconds and ensuring that it can still get up to speed quickly. even when the full load is used.
It’s a great engine and one that’s cleverly installed, with little to no vibration to speak of, and almost no rumbling under the bonnet as you’re driving along. .
It pairs well with BMW carso does the eight-speed automatic transmission; the transmission’s software is happy to shift gears early and use torque, allowing you to make rapid progress without taking revs beyond the powertrain’s comfort zone (all made and covered 2,500 rpm, in any case). This speed and ease of improvement plus the combined fuel economy at 50mpg up north makes you realize what a great fuel option is for customers who love high mileage.

There’s still scope to enjoy here, as the steering and body control are as well-regarded as they are in the saloon; Heavy loads can get in the way a bit, but in most situations you can definitely make a bit of an impression in the 320d Touring Trip along a fast-moving road.
The range has been simplified a bit but the set list is very extensive. Even the entry-level Sport versions get BMW’s curved display on the dashboard, which combines a 12.3-inch display for the digital dials and a 14.9-inch infotainment system running new software. best. It benefits from having both a touchscreen and i drive remote controll.
Material upgrades have been handpicked for the upgrade, with high-quality fabrics and finishes in most key areas; In this respect, the 3 Series recovers the platform significantly in terms of Mercedes C-Class.
The trunk still has a useful 500 liters of volume with the rear seats and 1,500 liters when all the 40:20:40 splits are folded down. The BMW cargo area also has some neat features like a rubber floor handle that lifts up slightly when the car starts, helping to prevent items from sliding on twisty roads. After driving spiritedly on a test route in Bavaria, we can attest that they perform well.
