Following the official release of the all-new 2017 BMW 5-Series Sedan about a month ago, the German based carmaker has already sent the Touring variant for a new round of tests, the test mule being caught on shots as well, wearing less camouflage around the rear end.
It has been already set that the new 5-Series Touring will come with an improved styling at the front and now we have the confirmation that the new model will also get new taillights and some new visuals at the rear.
As for the interior and high-tech gizmos, the 2017 BMW 5-Series Touring will borrow the latest technology from the Sedan sibling, meaning semi-autonomous driving, up-to-date safety features and improved high-end materials which will add a more cozy feel.
As expected, in the engine department, the new Touring is likely to come with the same powertrains as the 5-Series Sedan, including the 530e`s new plug-in hybrid. This means a 2.0-liter engine hooked to an electric motor and delivering a total of 250 horsepower.
The most powerful engine is also said to remain the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from the top of the line M550i xDrive, with an impressive 455 horsepower and a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h delivered in just 4.0 seconds. All engines will also get an all-wheel drive layout and a standard eight-speed automatic.
The details list is rather scarce at the moment, but we should expect fresh news next year in January, when the model is rumored to be unveiled at the 2017 NAIAS Motor Show, in Detroit.
