F31 3 Series Wagon With Less Camo & Destined for the US

With the recent sales start of the 2012 3 Series sedan full attention in the 3er realm is being directed at the 2013 3 Sport Wagon. The 3 Series Sports Wagon will make its debut at the Leipzig auto show this June. But perhaps more important to many of our readers is that we ‘ve confirmed an on sale date for the US market.

We ‘ve already confirmed that the F31 will make its presence stateside. Now we can report that sales will commence this fall as a 2013 model. The all new sports wagon will grow slightly in size and adopt much of the styling cues from the sedan. With volumes in the US so low this is more than likely the last of the beloved sports wagon from BMW, these things are going the way of the Dodo as perennial wagon builders Audi and Volvo have all but stopped offering them stateside outside the new All Road.

    Brilliant. Any news on options, lines, etc?

    Can we expect it to option out much like the sedan in terms of picking a line?

    Msport available upon release?

    An M Sport with adaptive suspension and manual transmission. That’s the touring I want!

    I love 3er wagons and am so excited for the F31 to be making its way over here!

    The only model will be the 328 and it will come with or without xDrive.

    Attract more customers, like all of the people lined up for a 3er GT, and the 5er GT for that matter. Haha.

    I guess I am tempering my enthusiasm until the details come out. I’d hate to get excited and then have it only available in a certain configuration…like no sports seats…that would leave me on the sidelines. I am with Michael and Evan, msport is the only “line” I see the need for.

    I wish BMW would green light the 5er touring for the US, even if its just for special order only.  It is one of the best looking wagons I have seen, especially if Jaguar brings its XF Sportbrake to the US.   http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2011/12/2013-jaguar-xf-sportbrake-digitally.html 

    My choice, if I could have it would be that badass ///M 550d x-drive touring with a 6 speed manual.  Or better yet, an F10 M5 touring http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2011/06/2012-bmw-m5-touring-artistically.html even though its an ‘off’ year for M5 tourings (E28/no; E34/yes; E39/no; E60/yes; F10/no)

    For now I will satisfy myself with E60 530/535 with a stick shift.

    When can we anticipate the arrival of the new 3 series coupe?  I really want to see what the styling is like.

    If the upcoming JCW Countryman doesn’t surprise us and come w/the N20 engine, and I seriously doubt it will, going with this in xDrive garb seems like the no brainer choice.
