Next-generation innovations.

From locking remotely using your smart phone, to parking in the trickiest of spaces, the new BMW 3 Series Touring is packed with technological innovations that make every aspect of driving a simple, intuitive pleasure.

BMW Navigation Package.

The BMW Navigation Package is now standard with every model of the BMW 3 Series Saloon,
providing the following features for the ultimate in innovative connectivity: BMW Navigation, BMW
Emergency Call and BMW TeleServices. The latest generation navigation system is operated intuitively
via voice control or via the iDrive Touch Controller with direct menu control buttons and six active tiles
representing Navigation, Media, Communication, ConnectedDrive, My Vehicle and Messaging.


The BMW 3 Series Touring also features BMW ConnectedDrive Services as standard, intelligently linking vehicle, driver and the outside world. It makes sure you’re always connected. So you can further enhance your experience with the choice of: 4G capability for navigation, active cruise control, automatic map updates.

Automatic boot opening.

To access the boot when your hands are full, the innovative comfort access system allows you to open it without even touching it. The system will cleverly sense that the car key is present, after which a quick wave of your foot under the bumper will activate a sensor that pops it open.


When sitting in the cockpit, all the information you need will be right in front of you, thanks to the BMW Head-Up Display. Included as part of the Professional Plus media package, or as an option in its own right, it projects data onto the windscreen in high resolution and full colour, with the projection appearing as if it were approximately 2.3m in front of the car. This allows it to be read quickly and easily, with minimal distraction.
Information displayed includes your current speed (and depending on equipment) navigation tips, speed limit info, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems. And because the BMW driving experience is tailored to you, you will only see information that you choose to see.


Intelligent systems for easier parking are available as an option with the new BMW 3 Series Touring. For example, Park Assist makes parking parallel and perpendicular to the road into a hassle-free experience. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces – even tight parallel parking spaces – while driving past at a low speed (below 21 mph) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars. When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and Park Assist takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. 

Drive Assist.

The Drive Assist package spots danger before it’s too late. Lane Departure Warning, for example, detects lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change (ie when the indicator has not been activated) at speeds above approx. 43mph.
Additionally, if a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, the BMW 3 Series Approach Control Warning is immediately activated – flashing a symbol at first, before emitting a warning sound and finally lightly applying the brakes (when travelling at speeds under 37mph).
The Person Warning operates in a similar way, warning of a potential collision with a pedestrian at speeds between 6 and 37 mph by emitting a warning and pre-conditioning the brakes for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system actually applies the brakes. (This function can be limited by darkness and fog).

Real Time Traffic Information.

Real Time Traffic Information, fitted as standard, provides precise information on the current traffic situation. Using data from movement profiles from the cellular network, and GPS data from vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, it knows the fastest route and guides you along it. It provides updates on the traffic situation in real time, and to the nearest 100m. 

It also calculates any likely delays and recommends detours, and will keep you informed at all times so you can avoid tailbacks and road closures. Where ever your journey takes you – motorways, major roads, country roads or inner-city routes – Real Time Traffic Information gets you there faster.

Digital Cockpit.

The optional Digital Cockpit features a high-resolution 10.25" display using black-panel technology. The instrument panel display design is dependent on the selected Drive Performance Control modes: ECO PRO, Comfort and Sport.
