Following a couple of spy photos with the 5-Series Touring undergoing tests and wearing camouflage around the rear end, renderings with the aforementioned model have already begun to pop-up online.
We are looking here at a couple of renderings signed by no other than theophiluschin, which is showcasing its own interpretation of the future G31 Touring. They are actually quite realistic as they follow the same styling lines as the test mule being spied under tests.
As we can depict from the renderings, the Touring shares the same design as its Sedan sibling, except for the rear, which is shaped with a wagon style, providing thus additional space for luggage and other equipment.
And even if the real photos revealed the rear end of the model with camouflage, it is easy to foresee that the future Touring will be coming with new taillights, keeping however the same Hofmeister Kink on the new D-pillar.
The G31 BMW Touring is expected to feature rather the same powertrains as the 5-Series Sedan, including the 530e`s new plug-in hybrid, meaning the 2.0-liter engine paired to an electric motor and delivering a total of 250 horsepower.
The much more potent 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine will be taken 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. The engine lineup will receive an all-wheel drive layout and a standard eight-speed automatic.
Future details with the upcoming G31 BMW 5-Series Touring will be revealed towards the end of the year, the model being expected for an official debut at the 2017 NAIAS, in Detroit. If not, we should definitely see it at the most awaited auto show of the year, in Geneva, next March.
