BMW is just fresh from unveiling the all-new seventh generation of the BMW 3 Series Sedan (G20) at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Bringing the promise of being much better than its predecessor, the all-new 3 Series Sedan is poised to meet the expectations. Nonetheless, BMW isn't finished yet, as the German carmaker will also offer wagon variant of the 3 Series.
As to how the new BMW 3 Series Wagon (G21) would look like, perhaps a design registration with Brazil's Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial could help. The images may not be as sharp as those released by BMW for the 3 Series Sedan, but they offer a good glimpse of the exterior of the upcoming 3 Series Wagon.
From the front end to the B-pillar, the BMW 3 Series Wagon looks identical to the 3 Series Sedan. The front end of the upcoming 3 Series Wagon is likewise marked by the large BMW kidney grille framed by a single surround. In addition, the bonnet of the 3 Series Wagon features four contour lines all flowing towards the BMW kidney grille.
The signature BMW twin headlights are also visually smaller with sharp edges, and features front bumper notch surging up the contour of the two-way split. It is likely that the 3 Series Wagon will come standard, with Full-LED headlights. LED headlights with extended features or Adaptive LED headlights with BMW Laserlight could also be optional for the wagon version.
Starting from the B-pillar, BMW 3 Series Wagon show its differences to the 3 Series Sedan, although some elements on rear section of the wagon are likewise identical to then sedan. From the B-pillar, the roof was extended upwards and backwards to make the rear cabin roomier not just for the passenger but also for their cargo. Thus, 3 Series Wagon could be considered as the more practical and roomier version of the 3 Series Sedan.
The profile of the new BMW 3 Series Wagon reveals a long hood, short overhangs as well as larger rear windows. Two character lines can be found rising up to the rear section at the door-handle level of the 3 Series Wagon. Likewise, BMW’s signature Hofmeister kink is present on the 3 Series Wagon.
Meanwhile, surface contours of the BMW 3 Series Wagon extend upwards through the L-shaped LED taillights. T-shaped trim elements are found on the rear bumper of the 3 Series Wagon. A small spoiler is also mounted at the tip of the long roof.
The images registered Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial didn’t reveal the interior and the powertrain of the new BMW 3 Series Wagon. However, the 3 Series Wagon is expected to have a similar cabin design as the Sedan, including optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.3-inch infotainment display. In addition, the engine lineup – both standard and optional – of the 3 Series Wagon is expected to mirror that of the 3 Series Sedan.
