BMW has been building wagons since 1987, but over the last 35 years, the words ‘M3’ and ‘estate’ have always stayed very separate - until now.

This is the BMW M3 Touring, which gets you access to the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine from the standard M3, now with added boot space for all your clobber. Performance looks promising: 4WD, 0-60mph in 3.7s (which is even faster than the M4 CSL), and a top speed of 174mph.
