2016 BMW 3 Series Sport Wagon Front Three Quarter In Motion 03

The outgoing BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon will be the last of its kind to be sold in North America, as the automaker has no intention of launching its next generation Stateside.

When asked about the arrival of the new 3-Series Sports Wagon in the U.S.by CarBuzz in an interview published Sunday, a BMW spokesman replied, "BMW of North America has no plans to bring the next-generation 3-Series Sports Wagon to the US market".

In India, the current 3-Series is available with a choice of two engines - 188 BHP 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel and 248 BHP 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol.

The Swadesh Bazaar in Rajasthan's Udaipur had a special visitor on Sunday - former USA first lady Hillary Clinton . Anand further expressed his love in a romantic speech praising his lady love, Isha, over and over.

In the USA, that model (pictured above in Euro spec) packs a 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. With crossover SUVs all the rage, the station wagon in general seems to be going the way of the manual transmission.

The first 3 Series wagon offered by BMW was the E46 generation vehicle, introduced in 1997; it joined the lineup along with the E34 5 Series wagon, which was available all the way up until 2010, then as the E60.

The new 3-Series gets a slimmer twin-kidney grille flanked by redesigned twin-pod LED headlights and a new front bumper. Our first-drive review on the 2019 3-series sedan-and thus our take on what wagon fans will be missing out on-publishes tomorrow, so be sure to check back.
