With a powerful BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, intelligent lightweight construction, integral active steering for first-class handling and agility, and an Adaptive Mode: the new BMW 5 Series Touring is designed for the ultimate athletic driving experience, and to always be one decisive step ahead of the competition.
Driving Dynamics & Efficiency
In perfect condition and displaying technical excellence, the new BMW 5 celebrates the future of driving enjoyment, now. Powerful engines and innovative lightweight construction merge with aerodynamic efficiency and intelligent technology to produce an unrivalled experience.
The driving experience control offers the choice between the standard comfort mode, eco pro mode, geared towards efficiency, and sport mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. The new interactive function adaptive mode continuously adjusts the dynamic damper control, the steering and the Steptronic transmission to suit the current driving situation.
Thanks to the use of lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra-modern aluminium alloys, the fifth generation supercar weighs up to 100kg less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axles, as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.
Apart from that, the BMW EfficientDynamics technology is also visible on a design icon: the kidney grille. When there’s little need for cooling air, the Active Air Stream kidney grille remains closed, which improves aerodynamics and is unique in this class.
Modern, sporty, and elegant – the harmonious balance of aesthetics and athletics in the new BMW 5 Series Touring is immediately eye catching. All equipment options are designed for exceptional comfort and optimum functionality.
Thanks to innovative technology, the luggage compartment can be loaded and unloaded easily, and its volume extended from 570 up to 1,700 litres. With a touch of the car key, the rear window can be opened to put in or take out luggage. A particularly practical feature is that when the rear window is opened, the roller cover goes up automatically, and when manually closed, it automatically covers the luggage compartment.
The rear seat backrest with its 40:20:40 split provides flexibility when transporting passengers and objects. Thanks to the through-loading system, two passengers can sit comfortably in the rear while there is still ample space to transport long objects such as ski and snowboard bags. For the ultimate ease of use, the rear seat backrest can be folded electronically.
The optimised loading concept of the new BMW 5 Series Touring opens up a world of opportunities. Functional features such as the folding rear seat with a variable split, the folding boot floor, and a large number of functional stowing and fastening options offer maximum flexibility. – Source: BMW
