The new BMW 3 Series Touring has been spotted testing on snow-swept roads in Sweden. The Touring will be based on the new BMW 3 Series we have already reviewed – so expect it to be great to drive and have a posh cabin that’s chockablock with clever tech.

The main difference is, of course, the boot – because the Touring is an estate car with a tall square load bay that’s more spacious and easier to load than the boot you’ll find in a BMW saloon.

Despite the camouflage wrap at the rear of the car in these photographs, it’s easy to see that the new Touring will get a huge load opening courtesy of its large boot lid. Tail lights integrated into the boot door make the boot wider and easier to load while the indent in the rear bumper should make the floor lower – so you can easily slide heavy luggage into place. The wrap around the edges of the rear window is likely to hide a mechanism that means you can lift up the back window so you can easily drop small items into place and on this car we can also see rails that’ll make it easy to fit a roof box.

In terms of capacity, expect the car to have a 500-litre boot with room for four suitcases while folding down the back seats will give you enough room to fit an adult’s bike with both its wheels attached.

And if these spy pics don’t quite do it for you, here’s a picture of the new 3 Series Touring that carwow prepared earlier.
