The BMW 5 Series Touring, the epitome of driving pleasure, sporty
elegance and modern functionality in the premium upper mid-range
segment, is entering a new era. The sixth generation of the BMW 5
Series Touring is more progressive than ever, featuring numerous
digital innovations, pioneering systems for automated driving and
parking, increased sustainability throughout the entire product life
cycle and, for the first time, an all-electric drive in the form of
the BMW i5 Touring. The new BMW 5 Series Touring is a sophisticated
all-rounder for everyday driving and touring, offering stylish
presence, superior sportiness, versatility and spacious comfort.

A flexible drive architecture allows model variants with highly
efficient petrol and diesel engines, plug-in hybrid systems and purely
electric drive systems to be produced on a single production line at
the BMW Group’s Dingolfing plant. The launch in Germany, many other
European countries and Japan will begin in May 2024, with other
markets to follow in June 2024.

Stretched proportions, strong front, individual rear.

Dynamically stretched proportions and generously designed surfaces
characterise the exterior of the new BMW 5 Series Touring. Compared to
its predecessor, the new BMW 5 Series Touring is 97 millimetres longer
(5,060 millimetres), 32 millimetres wider (1,900 millimetres) and
17 millimetres higher (1,515 millimetres). The new BMW 5 Series
Touring has the longest wheelbase in its class, increasing by
20 millimetres to 2,995 millimetres.

The distinctive front end features a modern interpretation of the
hallmark twin headlights and BMW grille. Two almost vertical LED
elements serve as direction indicators and daytime running lights
respectively. The BMW grille, which projects far forward, features
optional BMW Iconic Glow contour lighting. In the side view, the flat
window graphics and the long roof spoiler emphasise the sporty,
elegant 2-box design. Powerfully sculpted rear wheel arches, together
with the flat rear window, emphasise the car’s wide stature. An
L-shaped chrome bar divides the LED rear light elements, which extend
well into the side sections.

The range of paintwork includes three BMW Individual paint finishes.
The standard equipment of the new includes light alloy wheels in
18-inch and 19-inch sizes for the all-electric and the plug-in hybrid
models. Up to 21-inch alloy wheels are available as an option. The
dynamic character of the new BMW 5 Series Touring can be further
emphasised with the M Sport Package, M Sport Package Pro and M Carbon
Exterior Package options. As the top model in the series, the BMW i5
M60 xDrive Touring (combined power consumption: 20.8 – 18.3 kWh/100 km
(62 miles) according to WLTP) comes as standard with exterior
components that clearly express its outstanding driving dynamics.

Progressively designed cockpit, fully vegan interior.

At the heart of the progressive, driver-oriented cockpit design is
the BMW Curved Display. Its 12.3-inch Information Display and the
Control Display with a screen diagonal of 14.9 inches form a fully
digital display network. The modern premium ambience in the interior
is further enhanced by the new sports seats fitted as standard, the
steering wheel, which is now flatter at the bottom, and the optional
BMW Interaction Bar.

The new BMW 5 Series Touring has a completely vegan interior as
standard. The seat surfaces in the Veganza version are also optionally
available with a decorative perforation. Further optional equipment
includes BMW Individual Merino leather upholstery in several bi-colour
variants. Other highlights of the optional equipment programme include
the panoramic glass roof and the Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound
System with up to 18 loudspeakers.

Optimised functionality for everyday use, leisure and travel.

The new BMW 5 Series Touring offers more space and noticeably more
leg, shoulder and elbow room, especially in the rear, as well as
optimised acoustic comfort. With its versatile interior and numerous
intelligent functions, the new BMW 5 Series Touring is just as
impressive on the road as it is in everyday use.

A wider luggage compartment opening combined with a low sill makes it
easy to stow large items of luggage. Regardless of their drive
technology, all variants of the new BMW 5 Series Touring have a
luggage compartment volume that can be expanded from 570 to up to
1,700 litres. In addition to the automatic tailgate operation, remote
unlocking of the 40 : 20 : 40 split rear seat backrest from the
luggage compartment is also standard. Storage compartments under the
load compartment floor provide space for the luggage compartment
partition net, luggage compartment cover and charging cable for the
all-electric and plug-in hybrid models.

All-electric BMW i5 Touring available in two variants from the start.

The new BMW i5 Touring is the first all-electric premium model in its
competitive field. It will be available in two versions from the
outset. In the BMW i5 M60 xDrive Touring, two highly integrated drive
units on the front and rear axles together form an electric all-wheel
drive with up to 442 kW/601 hp. With M Launch Control or M Sport Boost
activated, the system torque is increased to 820 Nm (605 ft-lb). The
top model accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in
3.9 seconds and its top speed is electronically limited to 230 km/h
(143 mph). The electric motor of the BMW i5 eDrive40 Touring is
located on the rear axle (combined power consumption according to
WLTP: 19.3 to 16.5 kWh/100 km (62 miles)) and generates a maximum
output of 250 kW/340 hp and a maximum torque of up to 430 Nm (317
ft-lb) with Sport Boost or Launch Control function. The BMW i5
eDrive40 Touring accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds.

In both models, the high-voltage battery located in the underbody
provides a usable energy content of 81.2 kWh. In addition to the
efficient electric motors, adaptive recuperation and heat pump
technology for heating and cooling the interior, drive and
high-voltage battery contribute to the long-distance capability of the
BMW i5 Touring. The range determined in the WLTP test procedure is 445
to 506 kilometres (277 to 314 miles) for the BMW i5 M60 xDrive Touring
and 483 to 560 kilometres (300 to 348 miles) for the BMW i5 eDrive40 Touring.

Innovative charging solutions from BMW Charging.

The battery can be charged with alternating current with an output of
up to 11 kW as standard and up to 22 kW as an option. The high-voltage
battery can be charged with direct current with a power of up to 205
kW. Anticipatory thermal management for the high-voltage battery
optimises efficiency when using fast-charging stations. Connected Home
Charging for the all-electric and plug-in hybrid models creates the
conditions for solar and load-optimised as well as cost-optimised
charging. The BMW i5 Touring is also suitable for the Plug &
Charge Multi Contract function.

New diesel engines with 48-volt mild hybrid technology.

All diesel engines available for the new BMW 5 Series Touring are
combined with 48-volt mild hybrid technology and an 8-speed Steptronic
transmission. The four-cylinder engine of the BMW 520d Touring models
available at market launch (combined fuel consumption: 5.9 – 5.3 l/
100 km (62 miles); CO2 emissions:
154 – 141 g/km
according to WLTP) and BMW 520d xDrive Touring (combined fuel
consumption: 6.2 – 5.7 l/ 100 km (62 miles); CO2 emissions:
163 – 149 g/ according to WLTP) generates a maximum output of 145
kW/197 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). The drive
portfolio will be supplemented by an in-line six-cylinder diesel
engine in summer 2024. At the same time, two model variants with the
latest generation of plug-in hybrid drive will follow.

The ideal balance between sportiness and travelling comfort.

Driving pleasure in the new BMW 5 Series Touring is based on an ideal
balance between sportiness and travelling comfort. With the longest
wheelbase in the competitive segment, large track widths, an almost
perfectly balanced 50 : 50 axle load distribution, intelligent
lightweight construction and optimised rigidity of the body-chassis
connection, it offers the ideal conditions for this. The extensively
enhanced suspension technology includes sport steering, directly
controlled wheel slip limitation and the latest version of the
integrated braking system as standard. The BMW i5 Touring and the
plug-in hybrid models also feature rear-axle air suspension including
automatic self-levelling.

An M Sport Suspension, an M sport braking system and the Adaptive
Chassis Professional (standard in the BMW i5 M60 xDrive Touring) with
electronically controlled shock absorbers, Integral Active Steering
and new lateral dynamics management are available as optional
equipment. The Adaptive M Chassis Professional with Active Roll
Stabilisation and Active Roll Comfort is also available for the top model.

Innovative systems for automated driving and parking.

The systems for semi-automated driving and parking available as
standard or as an option for the new BMW 5 Series Touring set
standards in the competitive environment with their range of functions
reliability and everyday benefits. The highlight of the range is the
optional Driving Assistant Professional including Steering and Lane
Control Assist and Distance Control with Stop & Go function. In
the US, Canada and Germany, the Highway Assistant is available, which
relieves the driver of steering tasks on highways with structurally
separated directional lanes. At driving speeds of up to 130 km/h (85
mph) it is possible to take your hands off the steering wheel and
position them comfortably as long as you keep a close eye on the
traffic. The system also includes the unique Active Lane Change
Assistant with eye activation.

The new BMW 5 Series Touring features the Parking Assistant including
start monitoring, Trailer Assistant and Reversing Assist Camera as
standard. With the optional Parking Assistant Professional, automated
parking and manoeuvring up to 200 metres can be controlled from
outside the car using a smartphone.

Operating System 8.5 offers a redesigned home screen and the
“QuickSelect” quick access function. The combination of the
BMW Curved Display and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is
consistently designed for touchscreen and natural language operation.
The standard BMW Live Cockpit Plus includes the cloud-based navigation
system BMW Maps. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional option includes the
BMW Head-Up Display and an augmented view on the Control Display or
the instrument cluster.

The infotainment system in the new BMW 5 Series Touring is
