With a debut set later this year at the Paris Auto Show, the 2011 BMW 5 Series Touring is barely a mystery to anyone. Most of the design cues can already be seen on the F10 5 Series Sedan and the only point of interest for us revolves around the taillights design.

The Aussies folks at The Motor Report took their shot at rendering the upcoming Touring model. As we mentioned before, the new BMW 5 Series Touring, codename F11, has a longer wheelbase and a wider track than the current generation E60 5 Series, offering more interior room and also cargo space. As this rendering illustrates also, the new 5 Series Touring has grown in size and the rear-end sports a more coupeish-like roof.

5 Series Touring is considerably lower and sleeker than the 5 Gran Turismo model, but without sacrificing that sportiness much needed by the BMW buyers. While the new 5 Series Touring will continue to play an important role in Europe, the question remains whether BMW will phase them out in the U.S.

Design wise, the 2011 BMW 5 Series F11 is positioning itself as being one the most balanced and elegant looking BMW Touring ever built and it remains a crucial vehicle in BMW’s lineup, especially in the European market.

The engine line-up will be similar to the sedan offerings, a wide range of petrol and diesel engines.

The first official photos of the 2011 BMW 5 Series Touring will be revealed this summer and sales will begin in 2011.

    Now, doesn’t that make you want to buy the GT! Just kidding – of coarse. I’ve never been into the ‘touring’ or better known as station wagon models. Tho, they ARE very nice these days – and practical, I just don’t enjoy the look.

    I can’t seem to shake the image of the 90’s Volvo British Touring car… em, touring car… station wagon! It was like a pregnant racing car…

    Anyways, just my view.

    agreed with giom about touring,but the only touring i like was a e61…it looks kind of sinister…i hope this one will look like sinister as e61…but i would always take gt over touring..
