Engine and chassis

Light from the start.

The aluminium front axle in the BMW 3 Series Touring.

The aluminium double-joint tiebar axle delivers outstanding driving dynamics and excellent passenger comfort weighing around 30 percent less than normal steel axles. With weight distribution between axles almost exactly 50:50, the 3 Series Touring steers with crystal-clear precision. Stability, traction, control: qualities that turn every journey in this vehicle into a study in the pure pleasure of driving.
