The new long-roof 3 goes on sale in Europe later this year as the 328i, 330d, and 320d Touring. U.S. customers need to wait until Spring 2013 for the 3 Series Sports Wagon to arrive in showrooms, and powertrain details for our market have not yet been announced. The current 3 Series wagon is only offered as the 328i here in the U.S. (with and without xDrive).<br /><br />The new car is larger than the current model, and boasts 10 percent more cargo volume according to BMW. As with the 3 Series sedan, the wagon will be available in Sport, Luxury, and Modern lines, as well as an M Sport Line, each with a unique approach to their interior and exterior trim.<br /><br />Inside, the back seats have a 40:20:40 split and the cargo space offers plenty of room (as you can see in the photos). There's also hidden storage, a standard partition net, and if the cargo cover isn't in use, it can be stowed under the cargo floor for added convenience.<br /><br />Amenities include an available power tailgate that, with the optional Comfort Access package, becomes a hands-free power tailgate; you just wave your foot under the bumper à la <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/20/2013-ford-escape-first-drive-review-video/">2013 Ford Escape</a>. Naturally, BMW will offer its full complement of tech and driver aids, like BMW Apps, a color HUD, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, BMW Parking Assistant, Rear-view Camera with Top View, and the BMW Assist telematics service.<br /><br />So, the good news: There's a new 3 Series wagon. The bad news: You need to wait a year. But that's better than no wagon at all, right?<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/12/2013-bmw-3-series-sports-wagon-unveiled-is-u-s-bound/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>2013 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon unveiled, bound for U.S.</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/12/2013-bmw-3-series-sports-wagon-unveiled-is-u-s-bound/">2013 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon unveiled, bound for U.S.</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 12 May 2012 20:20:00 EST.
