Sedan version of BMW 3 Series was delivered to the U.S. market in 2011th but at that moment we did not receive any details about station wagon and if that version will be offered. Recently we were able to see spy photos and now we replace those with the real world 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon pictures and information’s about this vehicle.
Just by looking at this sports wagon we can conclude that it is almost identical to the sedan version especially in the front segment and part of the side. Same, well known and iconic, kidney grille is offered in combination with aggressive looking headlights that improve the level of elegance on this model and through the entire BMW lineup. Differences are quite obvious and they start behind the rear doors making the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon longer than sedan and able to offer a lot more room for cargo.
It is interesting to say that this vehicle will be offered in only one version and that will be the 328i xDrive model. It is important to say that even it comes with only one engine and great all-wheel drive it is available in three different trims so you can choose from Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line while the M Sport will be top of the line version.
The 2015th model comes with slightly bigger body and it will offer 3.66 inch longer base while the wheelbase will be about 1.96 inch longer. As a result interior space will be increased slightly while the addition of 1.46 and 1.85 inches to the front and rear tracks it will also return strong stance on road. Trim levels that we will have for this vehicle will continue the upgrades in interior.

Interior brings enough comfort for five passengers and more than enough space in trunk for luggage. You will immediately notice the luxury level of this vehicle that comes with high quality leather upholstery and soft touch materials almost on all parts of the cabin. Hidden storage compartment is located under the cargo area while the partition web will help you to keep all items in place during the ride. Among the things that we also like is the fact that we are getting about 35.3 cubic feet of trunk and the tailgate that allows much easier load of larger items.
As we mentioned only 328i xDrive model will be offered and this all-wheel drive vehicle will come with 2.0 liter inline four cylinder that can produce 241 hp at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at only 1,250 rpm thankfully to the TwinPower Turbo Technology. Power is delivered to all four wheels through an eight speed transmission that allows it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 6 seconds while the top speed is 130 mph. These are quite good results and when we add the fact that the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon is rated to 22/33 mpg city/highway it makes it even more impressive. Improved fuel economy result is certainly helped out with automatic start/stop system.
We all know that BMW always managed to offer great handling and sporty drive feel and the same situation is with the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon. Upgraded suspension in combination with Dynamic Stability control allows you to attack corners with higher speeds and much more confident. In case that you take this model to the track you need to know that the powerful brakes will give you a lot before you are able to overheat them since they come with Dynamic Brake Control and Brake Fade Compensation that adjusts the brake pressure in case those get overheated.
There is no doubt that the 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon comes as a great addition to the lineup of 3 series models and with great performances it will be one of the quite interesting models. If BMW delivered this model even earlier it would be great but still we need to say that there will be some good competitors in the future.
