The 5 Series saloon is having its engine line-up bolstered with the arrival of two four-cylinder units from BMW’s modular engine family.
A new entry level car – the 520i – is being launched, together with a new 525d model. Both engines have been developed from units featuring an extremely lightweight, thermodynamically-optimised, all-aluminium construction.
Thanks to TwinPower Turbo technology, they combine maximum power with impressive efficiency, and comply with the EU6 emissions standard.
The petrol 520i is a four-cylinder 1,998cc powerplant that produces 184hp and 290Nm, enabling a 0-62mph time of 7.8secs, a top speed of 146mph, official economy of 52.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 124g/km.
The four-cylinder BMW 525d diesel engine produces 231hp and 500Nm of torque. This can push the car to 60mph in 6.6secs and on to a top speed of 155mph. Fuel consumption comes in at a respectable 64.2mpg, resulting in CO2 emissions of just 116g/km.
The new 2017 BMW 5 Series Touring upholds a long tradition of being a perfect estate car for the premium car buyer who wants it all. Hot on the heels of the new 5 Series saloon, it’ll be in showrooms this June, with four engine options initially, and more to follow.Stream item published successfully.

The G30 Saloon has only just gone on sale yet BMW has already launched the Touring version and the new model received its worldwide premiere at the Geneva Show. Somehow BMW always seems to get the styling of its Tourings absolutely spot on and in the flesh the new G31 really does look the part, especially in blue with the M Sport styling package. Part of the reason for getting the car to market so quickly is that in its native Germany many customers will hold off from ordering a new 5 Series until the Touring is launched as it’s seen as a more practical version of the model and estates sell very well in Germany.
The new Touring is 36mm longer, eight millimetres wider and 10mm higher than the outgoing model and, crucially, is up to 100kg lighter than the outgoing model. The boot capacity is increased too, as is its maximum permissible load and with the 40:20:40 split folding rear seats it looks very practical too. UK prices start at £38,385 for a #BMW-520d-SE-G31 and rises to £52,760 for a #BMW-540i-xDrive-M-Sport-Touring .Stream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
