​Dog-friendly reviews – BMW 3 Series Tourer

Overall paw score: 4.5 out of 5.

Boot area

The BMW 3 Series Tourer’s large boot space is ideal for safely transporting your dog. The load sill is unobtrusive, and the opening is low to the ground, making access easier for smaller animals. The luggage compartment is big enough to store essential doggy items too, such as leads, toys and dog waste bags. What’s more, the vehicle’s carpeted boot floor is simple to remove and clean.

Ventilation

The car is fitted with rear air vents that will help to ensure that animals remain cool – very important during the hotter days of the year.

The 3 Series Tourer features an opening tailgate window, which is perfect for providing your pet with sufficient ventilation when parked. It’s possible to purchase a ‘bird-beak’ accessory too. This allows the window to remain safely open whenever you need to leave your dog for a minute or two – please contact us for more details.
