We at BimmerFile have waxed poetically about the BMW Sport Wagon for years. The ultimate mix of utility and performance, they’re a better option than crossover and sedans in almost every case. And thanks American’s insatiable desire for crossovers, they’re soon to be dead in the US market.
While this still should be classified as a rumor, it’s been confirmed by uber leak Scott26 and one of our own sources that has proven reliable in the past. The last wagon standing is of course the F31 3 Series currently for sale. And luckily we’ll have a few more good years with it as it’s last month of production is currently scheduled for 06/19.
Filling the gap will be the growing X1, the X3 and the always awkwardly 3 Series GT.
As an owners of two BMW wagons over the years (a gorgeous manual sport package equipped E46 and a 535i Sport) this is truly a loss for the brand in the US. While it may not be a loss in terms of volume this could very well drive away longtime customers of the brand with very European (i.e. BMW) sensibilities.
