Live from Germany, we bring you a new set of photos showcasing the 2017 BMW 5 Series Touring. BMW chose the 520d and 530d models (shown here) to illustrate the qualities of the new, premium sports wagon from Munich.

The 5 Series Touring will get the same powertrain options as the sedan, which means the typical suite of BMW’s diesel and petrol engines. Compared to its predecessor, the BMW G30 530d xDrive has become lighter by 95 kilograms, thus demonstrating the strength of the lightweight range of the new 5 Series.

The 530d’s 2,993cc TwinPower Turbo diesel develops a healthy 265hp at 4,000rpm, along with a thumping 620Nm of torque between 2,000 and 2,500rpm. With the xDrive system always optimizing available grip, this smooth oil burner shoves you hard in the back on its way to 100km/h in 5.4 sec, yet overall consumption is a frugal 47 mpg, with C02 emissions of just 132g/km.

Seen in these photos is also the M Sport Package, one that includes sports heated seats and a specific cover made, an M Sports leather steering wheel, aluminum trim and some specific details such as the illuminated M entry rails. The exterior changes include an M Aerodynamic package – front apron with larger air intakes, side skirt trim, a diffusor-style rear apron and an exhaust system with two rectangular tailpipes and lowered M Sport suspension.

In the premium wagon segment, the BMW 5 Series Touring competes with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, Audi A6 Avant and Jaguar XF Estate.
