BMW 3 Series Touring wins the 'Auto Express Test'

10/03/2016

Auto Express has pitted Audi’s new A4 Avant against the BMW 3 Series Touring and Volkswagen Passat Estate in a test of boot access, efficiency and lighting, with the BMW coming out on top.

• “The separate tailgate glass is a useful addition [to the boot], plus there’s plenty of cabin space. Factor in an involving drive that doesn't sacrifice comfort or economy, and it’s a clear winner in this test.”

• “The A4 Avant and 3 Series Touring both have standard-fit power tailgates. The Audi’s load cover moves automatically with the tailgate, while the BMW’s rear window opens independently to boost access in tight spots.”
