Contrary to rumors and reports circulating the internets, BMW will, in fact, bring the next 3 Series wagon to the U.S. But it's still a ways out.

According to Autoblog sources, the touring variant of the F30 3 Series will likely land on European shores within the next year, with the coupe and convertible versions arriving in late 2013. All four models – sedan, coupe, convertible and wagon – will be available in the U.S. when they arrive, but for the time being, the two-door and five-door versions of the E90/E92 will soldier on until their respective replacements arrive. And yes, a diesel version of the 2012 sedan unveiled last week should make it Stateside, as well.

      THANK YOU, BMW!!!!!!!!! Choosing lighter, more practical, more efficient, and more fun to drive wagons over big bloated "crossovers" is the way to go. BMW is my favorite mainstream brand because they know what enthusiasts wants. In this case, many auto-enthusiasts want something with a little bit of soul in them that can haul around a family and luggage. In this case, it's a wagon. I could see many former, current, and potential Volvo,and to a point, Subaru, and Chrysler(remember the Magnum?) customers moving on to BMW. Volvo discontinued their trademark wagons, Chrysler's brain-dead management discontinued the Magnum for no apparent reason,and Subaru turned their wagons into bloated SUVs.

      I think American customers really need to get educated on wagons. They offer much better fuel economy, similar space, and better driving dynamics than CUV's. I think it's time for Americans to get over the negative stigmas of wagons-after all, in the 70's, nobody wanted a convertible, and today, every rich kid has one. After all, CAFE standards are only going to go up,up,up and did I say, up? Wagons provide much better fuel economy than CUV's and they could be used to help increase a manufacturer's CAFE standards if the wagon is classified as a light truck.

        All the sheeple who only care about a tall driving position to be more observant when driving and ground clearance for winter driving go out and buy SUV's and crossovers. But then they never have their eyes and minds on the roads anyway, and act surprised when their jacked up 4x4 is in a snow bank because it still has summer tyres on. If only more Americans would realize that if you want luggage room for the dog and high performance, get a wagon instead of a crossover. And if driving dynamics matter little and you need more space, a minivan works better than any SUV. Seems BMW is smartening up by realizing some of us really want wagons.

      AB, you guys mean "Shooting Brake" don't you. C'mon...you know you guys are itching to use that term again.

        That would be bad ass! The new 3 series front end with a shooting break style rear? Sign me up.

      Dealerships in the US will keep pushing customers toward SUVs instead of wagons, though. So unfortunate.

        When I was shopping for my 2007 Magnum SRT8 last year, one Chryler dealership tried pushing me towards a Durango or Aspen. Quote "It's manlier. It has more room, and you'll survive if you get into a crash, you won't with the Magnum." I told them that I was looking for a performance vehicle, so they actually tried pushing me towards the Aspen "It has a nice powerful V8, it isn't as fast but hey it's manlier and safer so why not go for the Aspen?" These Suv's are unfortunately, cash cows for automakers, the same cannot be said for the Magnum.

          Ha, a Durango and Aspen are 'manlier' than an SRT8 magnum? Because it's the soccer moms that drive Hemi V8 estates, not overweight SUV''s right? I hope you told that dealer where to shove it.

          Sounds like your dealer was a complete douchebag. "Here's this car we're selling, it will kill you if you get in a crash. But buy this other one instead".

      Nice to see a company that still believes in wagons unlike some others *cough*Subaru*cough*

      Give me a 335i wagon with a 6 speed or a 335d with paddles and I will be the happiest man ever.

      I think that will be my next car, barring a diesel 5-door 120 or 123d coming over here (fat chance, I know).

      If I were in the market for a 3, I would buy the wagon. That said, I doubt too many other Americans would make the same decision, and those that would, like myself, are not real buyers.

        As many BMWs as I see every day where I live, I have only seen one E92 wagon in my entire life.

          I saw the first E92 wagon in the show room and I've been a happy owner of it since then :)

        Why make a decent comment when you can say something completely irrelevent and unfounded, just to show your cripplingly heavy bias?
