Spy Shots: BMW M3 CS Touring Spotted Testing in Germany

By SEMA News Editors

SEMA News sources recently captured new images of what is believed to be the '25 BMW M3 CS Touring, a high-performance version of the top-tier 3-series, testing on the Nürburgring in Germany.

The Touring follows the established pattern of the M3 sedan, typically available in standard, Competition and CS versions, with occasional low-volume specials like the GTS.

Based on the new images, insiders expect the five-door wagon to feature the same engineering upgrades as the BMW M3 CS sedan and make an official debut in late 2024 or early 2025. The model is also expected to have the same S58 straight-six engine, enhanced by twin turbochargers, to boost power to 550 hp. The eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system are likely to receive calibration tweaks.

Carbon fiber in certain body panels will provide modest weight savings, and sources suggest the front fascia, rear diffuser and rear spoiler will be lighter, though the wagon may not get the CS sedan’s CFRP roof.

The new '25 BMW M3 Touring CS is part of the G81 family of 3-series wagons and production might be limited to around 2,000 units. BMW might also offer a special CS color palette, as well as carbon-fiber bucket seats and alloy wheels.
