BMW teases new 5 Series Tourer
Hot on the heels of the 5 Series and i5 saloons, BMW has released a teaser snap of its new Touring 5 Series, which is set to hit the market in the first half of 2024.
Featuring similar design cues to the saloon, here’s what you need to know.
BMW 5 Series Touring styling
So far, we’ve only seen the above teaser shot, so its exact appearance remains under wraps. However, it’s clear that this car will be heavily modelled on the saloons, featuring the same rakish front end and sharp headlight design.
Around the back, though, you’ll get a boxier estate-like shape, that’ll help this compete with cars like the E-Class Estate and Audi A6 Avant.
BMW 5 Series Touring interior and tech
Inside, it’ll be the same story – looks and tech will be carried over from the saloon. The cabin is as driver-focused as ever, but changes include a vast 14.9in touchscreen infotainment system with BMW’s latest iDrive tech. It’s compatible with Android Auto and Apply CarPlay and dominates the dashboard.
It moulds neatly into the 12in digital driver display, that offers vivid graphics and customisable displays. It’s a stunning system which on the looks front, can rival the likes of Mercedes at least. The technology itself is impressive too, with the i5 even featuring a games console that you can play as it’s charging.
Exact specs for the 5 Series Touring are to be confirmed, but we’ll bring you more info as soon as we get it.
BMW 5 Series Touring drivetrains
The same options as the saloon will be available from launch. That means there’ll be a number of petrol options, as well plug-in hybrids.
Models will include the 520i and the 530e. The latter combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor, and will be able to travel around 60 miles on electric power alone.
The all-electric i5 will also be available as a Touring model, which will mean two power options from launch – the eDrive 40 and the M60. The former is rear-wheel drive, while the M60 features xDrive four-wheel drive and could get a 0-62mph time of less than four seconds.
Range for the Touring versions is to be confirmed, but expect both models to offer in excess of 300 miles of range between charging.
BMW 5 Series Touring release date
The 5 Series Touring and i5 Touring are set to make their full debut later in the year, with order books opening in spring 2024. Deliveries will commence in the UK towards the summer of next year.
