The new BMW 5 Series Touring had its world premiere today at the 2010 Leipzig Auto Show. Courtesy of our sister-magazine, BimmerToday, we are bringing you real life photos of one of the best looking Touring models coming out of the Munich gates.
Touring coverage continues with new videos just released by BMW. With its long bonnet, short overhangs, the longest wheelbase in its segment, the stretched silhouette and a steeply inclined roofline, the new BMW 5 Series Touring possesses an elegance that hopes to attract new customers to the brand.
In a segment where the competition comes from Audi A6 Avant and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, the new 5er Touring is characterized by its dynamics and powerful looks.
The new BMW 5 Series Touring is fully equipped to meet the most diverse demands. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 560 liters. If desired, an increase in capacity to a maximum of 1,670 litres is guaranteed by 40:20:40 split folding rear seats, which are unique in this segment.
As seen in the 5 GT or 7 Series, optional Dynamic Driving Control enables drivers to set the suspension individually to their personal requirements. The new BMW 5 Series Touring features as standard pneumatic suspension on the rear axle, including automatic self-levelling. Adaptive Drive and Integral Active Steering are optionally available.
The new BMW 5 Series Touring is making its debut with a choice of two straight-six petrol engines as well as a four-cylinder and a six-cylinder diesel and it is NOT available in the U.S., as we recently learned.
