El único BMW with family bodywork developed by its high performance division M (Motorsport) to the present day It is already on sale in Spain. This is the BMW M3 Competition M xDrive Touring (better known as M3 Touring), a car that shares almost all its components with the conventional M3, that is, with a four-door sedan body variant, instead of five, and less trunk capacity. Unsurprisingly, it's not an affordable car. Its price starts at 122.150 euros.

Equipped with a turbocharged gasoline engine with 6 cylinders in line and 3,0 liters of displacement, which develops a maximum of 510 CV of power and 650 Nm of torque, this vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 3,6 seconds and reach 250 km/h top speed (electronically limited). If the customer opts for an optional package, it is possible to significantly improve some benefits. Power from the engine is transmitted to all four wheels through a automatic gearbox and a all-wheel drive system that allows the front axle to be disconnected.

despite his excellent dynamic behavior, more typical of a sports car than a "ranchera", this product has an empty weight of almost 2 tons. However, its average consumption approved according to the WLTP procedure is 10,1 l / 100 km, which is relatively low considering what it runs.

It may not be as practical and versatile as a BMW X3 M (with exactly the same mechanics), since the M3 Touring has 500 liters of volume in the space destined to the load of luggage (50 less than its SUV counterpart in the range of the German brand), 4,79 meters in length (it is 8 cm longer, ergo less maneuverable) and less ground clearance (which makes it difficult to get off the asphalt). In return, it is close to 5.000 euros cheaper.

This same week, BMW presented its new M3 CS, the most radical version of the medium-sized German saloon. This invites us to think that, not in a long time and with an M3 Touring already existing, a Club Sport family variant could appear. While we dream that it arrives, enjoying a high degree of performance in a car like this is already possible in our country.
