Packs much back

The estate's increased storage space makes for a much more bulbous rear end, which is particularly evident when viewed from the rear quarter. The BMW 5-Series Touring does a much better job of hiding its heft from this angle.

Choice of powertrains

Gasoline and diesel engines will be available with a selection that will be similar to that of the sedan and coupe variants. 4Matic all-wheel drive will also be available.
