All the way back in 2011 BMW delivered Series 3 in sedan version but there were no information’s about station wagon. Not so long ago we were able to see few leaked images and spy shots of this vehicle and it seams that 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon will receive some nice changes over 2014 model that will be delivered.
As anticipated, the station wagon version will showcase the exact same design language as the sedan model, albeit with an extended back for much better cargo room.
BMW had not been so generous in offering models for the Sports Wagon. There is only one model available– 328i xDrive– however there are plenty of optional bundles to spruce it up a bit. BMW will offer Sport Line, Luxury Line, and Modern Line devices bundles, as well as an optional M Sport plan which will be readily available at launch.
The Bimmer 3 Series Sports Wagon features similar styling as its predecessor, but it will get an added 3.66 inches in length, and a 1.96-inch longer wheelbase in order to offer extra space for passengers and luggage alike. Its front and rear tracks are also increased by 1.46 inches and 1.85 inches, respectively.
The new 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon will also take advantage of improved trip convenience, the availability of the new Sport Line, Luxury Line, and Modern Line equipment packages, and the materials and color concept discovered in the just recently presented 3 Series Sedan.

On the within, the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon is extremely versatile. It includes a pair of coat hangers, a 12-volt outlet and four tie-down incorporates the cargo area. Under the cargo area is a storage compartment for small items and a partition web can help keep items from clanging off of one another while you tackle the twist en route to attract Billy from soccer practice.
Speaking of the freight hull, the Sport Wagon offer up to 35.3 cubic-feet of payload space. The tailgate opening is 40.5 inches high by 26 inches large, making it easy to move even the biggest payload in place.
BMW offers just one 3 Series Sports Wagon version in the U.S. and that is the 328i xDrive. This wagon features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with the now famous TwinPower Turbo Technology. This engine puts down 241 horse power at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,250 rpm. The engine connects to an eight-speed STEPTRONIC transmission with Adaptive Transmission Control. This driveline enables the Bimmer wagon to hit 60 mph in simply 6 seconds and a top speed of 130 miles per hour. Thanks to its automatic start/stop system, the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon is rated at 22 mpg city and 33 mpg freeway.
Up front, this sporty wagon features the rear suspension and a double-pivot suspension boasts a five-link system with aluminum transverse arms. Dynamic Stability Control keeps the wagon in check in the corners and a set of twin-tube gas shocks.
Bringing the wagon to a stop is a high-performance, light-weight disc brake system and ABC and Dynamic Brake Control. Also included is Brake Fade Compensation to assist avoid extended braking distances when the pads and rotors fume.
The 3 Series Sports Wagon is a good addition to the line up and its excellent 6-second naught to 60 mph sprint it outstanding. We are wondering why it took a complete model year to get the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon on the same playing field as the 3 Series Sedan, but better late than never ever. Bimmer leads the pack in luxury sport wagons for now, but if the CTS ends up with a wagon version, BMW has its work cut out for it.
