The third generation 5 Series Touring
The introduction of the third generation BMW 5 Series Touring continues the bloodline of BMW's famous Touring name that, since its debut, has stood for dynamism, practicality and style.
Meeting the demands of the executive requiring dynamic on-road agility and large load carrying ability, the new model adds a refined, stylish look and a host of innovative technologies, ensuring that the Touring really is the estate car of choice.
First sold in 1991, the BMW 5 Series Touring defined the premium estate segment and a host of innovations offered on the new version set it apart from its rivals.
Not only can this all-new Touring model come with Dynamic Drive and Active Steering, two features that hone ride and handling, but the first ever Head-up Display system offered on a BMW will debut in the autumn.
Run-flat tyres also feature as does a Panoramic roof for open-air motoring.
