The BMW 5 Series Touring


Driving the New BMW 5 Series Touring.

In perfect condition and displaying technical excellence, the new BMW 5 Series Touring 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 Integral Active Steering of the new BMW 5 Series Touring.

Opposing steering

Below 60km/h.

Opposing steering.

Integral Active Steering combines steering for the rear wheels with support that varies based on the steering angle on the front axle. At speeds of up to around 60 km/h, the rear wheels turn opposite the front wheels. This minimises the effort required for steering, resulting in comfortable responsiveness while manoeuvring, and it reduces the turning radius and improves the agility of the vehicle.

Parallel steering

Above 60km/h.

Parallel steering.

Beginning around faster speeds of around 37mph, the rear wheels turn parallel to the front wheels. This increases stability and comfort particularly with swift and sudden lane changes.

Driving Experience Control with Adaptive Mode

The Driving Experience Control offers the driver 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.

BMW 5 Series Touring engine


The new BMW 5 Series Touring is not satisfied with mediocrity. So it’s only logical that it should lead its class in terms of acceleration and CO2 emissions. Hence the intelligent Start Stop function, included for the first time, which switches the engine off should the stop last for a little while.

The new BMW 5 Series with xDrive


Thanks to more lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the seventh generation BMW 5 Series Touring weighs in at up to 95 kilograms less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axle as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.

BMW 5 Series Touring Kidney Grille


In the new BMW 5 Series Touring, BMW EfficientDynamics technology is 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.


Less fuel consumption, more driving pleasure: BMW EfficientDynamics is the name of the strategy to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while at the same time increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. The package of functions covers the drive system, energy management and vehicle concept.
