You can see details and long shots of the exterior and interior of the mid-range station wagon, which offers the largest luggage compartment in its competitive environment with a load volume of 1,500 liters in the rear seat. Practical details such as the standard electrically opening and closing tailgate, the rear window that can be opened separately, the numerous options for separating the luggage compartment and the three-part foldable rear bench in a 40: 20: 40 ratio make the 3 Series Touring not only a dynamic combination among station wagons, but also also a pleasant companion in everyday life.
