2020 Alpina B3 Touring teased

Sports wagon lovers, rejoice! No, BMW still hasn’t developed an M3 Touring but BMW tuner Alpina has once again stepped up to help fill the void. Auto Express reports Alpina will debut its enhanced version of the new G21-generation 3 Series Touring, the B3 Touring, at next month’s Frankfurt motor show following a teaser image (above) published this week. The regular 3 Series Touring debuted only a few months ago in June.
