BMW 3-series Touring specs announced

BMW has announced specifications for the new 3-series Touring range, which goes on sale on September 17.

Two engine variants will be available at launch, the 2.0-litre diesel 320d Touring and the new magnesium-alloy six-cylinder 325i Touring, with 320i, 330i and 330d engine variants becoming available later in autumn 2005.

All six-cylinder Touring models feature BMW’s DSC+ traction control system as standard.

Differentiated from the usual DSC system (standard on four-cylinder cars), DSC+ offers additional features to ensure the brakes are primed for faster emergency stops, they are ‘wiped’ dry in wet conditions and are programmed to stop a manual car rolling backwards during a hill-start.

The new 3 Series Touring has the same chassis and suspension components as the Saloon variant.

Two ISOFIX child seat fixings are included in the rear of the Touring as an option. Customers can also choose to have separate air conditioning for rear passengers. An optional Panorama sunroof is also available as an extra option.
