Used BMW 3-Series Touring (2005 - 2012) Buying & Selling

Review by David Ross on
As estates go, the 3-Series Touring isn't the biggest around, but it's usefully practical nonetheless and is certainly a good choice if you need more versatility than the saloon version offers. Standard boot capacity is actually the same as the four door - but with the rear seats folded flat the Touring can carry plenty with more than 1300 litres of space.

Buying used

The Touring version of the 3-Series isn't as common as the saloon on the second-hand market so it may take longer to find the right car. Cars built after September 2007 are fitted with Efficient Dynamics, making them more economical, so are worth seeking out. The 318d is the most cost effective choice.

You should have very few problems selling a 3-Series Touring, especially if it's a diesel model. If you're car incorporates Efficient Dynamics this is worth highlighting to potential sellers as it means more power, lower emissions and increased economy.
