Driving the BMW 5 Series Touring.

In perfect condition and displaying technical excellence, the 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 BMW 5 Series Touring.

Opposing steering

Below 37mph.

Opposing steering.

Integral Active Steering varies the amount of rear wheel steering based on the steering angle of the front axle. Up to around 37mph, the rear wheels turn opposite the front wheels. This minimises the steering effort required, making manoeuvring easier, and it reduces the turning radius as well as improving the agility of the vehicle.

Parallel steering

Above 37mph.

Parallel steering.

Beginning at around 37mph, the rear wheels turn in parallel to the front wheels. This increases stability and comfort, especially during swift and sudden lane changes.

BMW 5 Series Touring Engine


The 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.

BMW 5 Series Touring Driving Experience Control with Adaptive Mode

Driving Experience Control with Adaptive Mode.

The Driving Experience Control offers 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 with xDrive


Thanks to the use of lightweight materials such as aluminium and ultra modern aluminium alloys, the fifth generation BMW 5 Series Touring weighs up to 100kg less than its predecessor. The intelligent lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between front and rear axles, as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly dynamic driving characteristics.

BMW 5 Series Touring Kidney Grille


In the 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.
