All-New 2017 BMW 5-Series Dreamt Up In Touring Guise

Hot on the heels of the G30 BMW 5-Series sedan debut, rendering artists have already started imagining how future variants of the car will look.

Recently, we had a chance to see what form the new M5 will take and now it’s time to see the latest 5-Series Touring.

Rendered here by both Jon Sibal and Theophilus Chin, the new 5-Series Touring will follow a familiar formula by simply extending the roofline and tailgate to stretch the car and make it much more practical.

When it launches, probably in 2017, the new 5-Series Touring will compete directly with the recently-revealed Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate and in all likelihood, be offered in many of the same guises as the sedan.

That should mean that the model will be available with four turbocharged engines. Two of these will be petrol-powered, one displacing 2.0-liters with 248 hp and another a 3.0-liter inline-six delivering 335 hp. Two diesels could complete the initial range, one 2.0-liters in capacity and the other a 3.0-liter unit. A plug-in hybrid and 4.4-liter V8 may also be added to the Touring family, as they will the sedan.

At this stage, it seems unlikely the new 5-Series will spawn an M5 Touring. While offered for the E60-generation M5, coined the E61, the model was scrapped for the current F10 model.
