2024 BMW M5 Touring: What We Know So Far

by Roger Biermann

BMW is getting back into the M5 wagon game with an all-new BMW M5 Touring wagon, and best of all, it's coming to the USA. Based on the G60-generation BMW 5 Series , itself built on BMW's CLAR platform, the new M5 Touring will wear the G99 chassis code. As the third M5 Touring in BMW's history (notwithstanding the one-off E39 prototype), the 2024 M5 Touring will also be one of firsts, namely the first to use plug-in hybrid power and the first M5 wagon to make it stateside. It will need the electric augmentation, though, as the Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon is likely to be electrified soon, and we've been told a bonkers Audi RS6 swansong is on the way too. It's thanks to those two rivals that we'll even be getting the M5 Touring in America, as it's been through high demand that BMW M decided the US market was worth it .

2024 BMW M5 Touring

When is the 2024 BMW M5 Touring Coming out?

Only officially teased for the first time in June 2023, the M5 Touring wagon is expected to debut before the end of the year, before coming out, probably as a 2024 model, early in the new year. Its debut will likely accompany the standard M5 Sedan. A firm release date has not been confirmed.

What’s the Price of the 2024 BMW M5 Touring?

It's too early to confirm pricing, but one thing is for sure, the price of the 2024 BMW M5 Touring is guaranteed to be over six figures. While the current M5 Sedan has an MSRP of $109,900, and the M5 CS costs $142,000, we're expecting an M5 Touring to cost at least $130,000 when it arrives, if not more.

New BMW M5 Touring Exterior and Colors

While BMW has furnished us with images of a camo-clad M5 Touring prototype as of yesterday, much of its design elements are still shrouded in mystery. Naturally, it will have a long roof with a roof-mounted spoiler, and as is par for the M course, widened fenders, quad exhaust outlets, and new bumpers front and rear. We also expect 21-inch alloy wheels to be fitted.

As for the colors of the BMW M5 Touring wagon, there'll likely be a new halo color but also BMW staples like Black Sapphire Metallic, Alpine White, Dravit Grey, Hockenheim Silver Metallic, and Melbourne Red. However, this is all subject to change.

BMW M5 Touring Dimensions

Curiously, BMW has announced the M5 Touring before even teasing a 5 Series wagon, so information is scant on what to expect. The new 5 Series Sedan gives us an indication of what to expect sizewise, though, with dimensions including a wheelbase of approximately 118 inches, a length of around 200 inches, and a width in excess of 75 inches.

The big change here will be the weight of the M5 Touring, as its plug-in hybrid V8 powertrain is expected to tip the scales at over 5,000 lbs.

BMW M5 Touring Engine and Performance

The reason for that rather unflattering curb weight is what will power the wagon. The engine in the M5 Touring will be the familiar S68 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, but it will be paired to a plug-in hybrid system seen in the XM super-SUV. We know this as BMW representatives told CarBuzz the brand would never develop a powertrain solution for a single vehicle only. But we were also told by insiders that it's likely to arrive sporting the full 738 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque from the XM Label Red . That may be in a more potent Competition spec, but even in base form, expect upwards of 700 hp.

That power will be divvied to the latest version of the M xDrive all-wheel drive system and make use of an eight-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. 0-60 mph should be possible in under 2.8 seconds, given how rapid the M5 CS was, and a top speed limited to 155 mph to start. The option to lift this to upwards of 180 mph is also expected. The AWD system will provide immense grip, while a rear-biased drift mode should let you perform lurid slides at will. But its weight may negatively impact handling, and we're expecting BMW M to pull out all the stops to get it to handle like an M5 should, with adaptive suspension, electronic anti-roll compensation, and trick differentials.

Gas Mileage/Range, Charging, Battery Life

The BMW XM doesn't have a battery recharge mode , nor will the M5 Touring, but the latter will likely have a similar all-electric range of around 30 miles. We can also expect similar gas mileage figures, but with a lower stance and hopefully a little less weight, they might even be better than the XM's 73 MPGe combined. For reference, the current M5 is rated at 15/21/17 mpg city/highway/combined, while the XM's gas-only consumption figure is 14 mpg combined.

Charging will occur via brake regeneration and plugging into a home socket, which should fully replenish the battery in just over three hours on a Level 2 outlet.

2024 BMW M5 Touring 11

BMW M5 Touring Interior and Cargo

BMWs are getting bigger, but the one place that pays dividends is inside the cabin, especially in the interior of the BMW M5 Touring, where the long roof should give buyers a handy amount of cargo space. The 5 Series Sedan has 17.3 cubic feet, while the old 5 Series Touring in Europe had 20 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 60 cubes with the rearmost seats folded. Expect more or less the same figure. The M5 Touring seats five occupants in two rows, with M bucket seats up front to cradle you when things get fun. A traditional M steering wheel will feature M1 and M2 modes for pre-programmed customizable modes, and the bulk of the materials will be leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber.

As for amenities, standard infotainment will come via the BMW Curved Display, comprising two adjacent screens for instrumentation (12.3 inches) and infotainment (14.9 inches), respectively. Expected to run BMW Operating System 8.5, there will also be an abundance of functionality, and BMW is likely to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, into this from a tech perspective, including a head-up display and Highway Assistant semi-autonomous driving with eye-activated lane changing.

BMW Gives the Motoring Public an X-Mas Gift with the M5 Touring Teaser

2025 BMW M5 Touring Teaser 0 Hero

By: Tim Huber Published: Dec 28, 2023

Back in late June — almost exactly a year to the day after pulling the cover off of the first-ever production M3 Touring — BMW first revealed teaser images of its forthcoming M5 Touring sport wagon. Now, after several years of development and extensive road and track testing, the Bavarian brand is poised to soon debut its full-size third-generation M-spec sport wagon . Before doing so, however, it’s giving the motoring public one final glimpse of the 2025 BMW M5 Touring prior to its official release next year. 

2025 BMW M5 Touring Teaser 1

Taking aim squarely at other full-size high-performance sport wagons like the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon and Audi RS 6 Avant performance, the latest M5 Touring is expected to offer the immense performance capabilities typical of BMW’s M Motorsport division’s vehicles, albeit in a more practical package. Details are largely scant at this point, though the marque has confirmed several elements on the forthcoming M car. For starters, we know the existing M5’s BMW M TwinPower Turbo 4.4-liter V-8 will be replaced with a state-of-the-art partially-electrified hybrid powertrain unit that’s said to be good for around 800hp and 750ft-lbs of torque — a major increase over the outgoing V8’s 617hp and 553ft-lbs. Sent to the ground via BMW’s M xDrive four-wheel drive system, this boost in power is also expected to result in a quicker 0-60mph time than the regular existing M5’s already impressive 3.2-second sprint. 

2025 BMW M5 Touring Teaser 2

Like the regular M5 — and the M3 Touring — the M5 Touring sports a sleek set of redesigned bodywork complete with a mild aero kit that includes an aggressive front-end and grille design and a small rear spoiler. The upcoming M5 Touring will also be constructed around a frame that benefits from BMW’s latest precisely tuned chassis technology, plus will presumably feature a cutting-edge track-derived suspension package. The upcoming M5 Touring will also feature an extensive use of lightweight materials as well as a compound brake system with M Carbon ceramic brakes.

The 2025 BMW M5 Touring is slated for an official release sometime next year.

BMW M5 Touring Teaser Shows Off Upcoming, High-Performance Wagon

The m3 wagon gets a big brother..

BMW M5 Touring Teaser

The next-gen BMW M5 will get a Touring wagon variant, and a new teaser reveals its silhouette. The long-rood model will arrive in 2024.

BMW promises the M5 Touring offers "uncompromising long-distance comfort and impressive spaciousness." The company also confirms that it uses a partially electrified drivetrain. This setup is allegedly related to what's in the BMW XM , which consists of a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, an electric motor, and a 29.5-kilowatt-hour battery. The Label Red version of the SUV makes 735 horsepower and 735 pound-feet of torque, but the output for the M5 family is still a mystery.

BMW plans to begin on-road testing of the M5 Touring in just a few days. The development will take place on public roads around Munich, at the M GmbH headquarters in Garching, Germany, and at the Nürburgring.

Next-Gen BMW M5 Spy Photos

Spy shots and renderings give us a good idea of how the new M5 looks. The front fascia has triangular openings in the corners. Angled inlets create a complex trapezoidal element in the center with a pair of rectangular sections. Development vehicles have partially closed kidney grilles, but we expect them to be open when the production model arrives.

The M5 Touring would have four exhaust pipes like over M vehicles at the back. The extended roof and hatchback should provide more space in the back for hauling cargo.

We don't yet have photos inside the new M5, but the cabin for the standard 5 Series should be a good guide of what to expect. It features a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch infotainment screen. Thicker bolsters for the seats and revised trim are potential changes for the sporty model.

This won't be the first M5 wagon. BMW introduced the first one in 1992 and launched another for the V10-powered model in 2007.

The new M5 Touring will have competition from its German rivals. Spy shots show that Audi is working on a refreshed RS6 Avant with a more aggressive body than the current one . We don't yet have confirmation of a new E63 wagon coming, but spy shots show the brand at least working on an E53 variant .

2022 bmw m5 cs front

Select a year

  • Lows Exterior styling lacks drama, AMG E63 S has a racier soundtrack, some other M cars are more engaging.
  • Verdict The M5 is an icon among sports sedans, and this generation's outrageous performance preserves that legacy.

What's New for 2022?

For the 2022 model year, BMW adds the limited-production Competition Sport (CS) to the M5 lineup. Along with unique chassis tuning and a reworked version of the Bimmer's twin-turbo V-8 (now making 627 horses), the CS benefits from a bevy of weight-reducing measures. BMW claims it's 230 pounds lighter than the M5 Competition and that it's the quickest and most powerful production car in the company's history. Other notable features on the CS are its lightweight, heavily bolstered M carbon-fiber front seats and its two rear bucket seats. The CS rolls on bronze-colored 20-inch wheels, and shoppers can add a set of Pirelli P Zero Corsa performance tires at no cost.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

The price of the 2022 BMW M5 starts at $105,695 and goes up to $143,995 depending on the trim and options.

The M5 CS's exclusivity and enhanced performance will cost you $30,900 more than the regular Competition. We'd settle for the Comp's 617 horses and roster of track-capable components but upgrade our pick with the Executive package. It adds myriad driver-assistance and luxury features, including a 360-degree camera system, ventilated front-seat cushions with built-in massagers, heated front and rear seats, parking sensors at both ends, power-operated rear window shades, self-parking assist, and soft-close doors.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The M5 is mighty, boasting 600 horsepower from its twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 in base form. In the more track-focused Competition or CS variant, that figure increases to 617 or 627 horses, respectively. We've yet to climb behind the wheel of the CS, but we have strapped our testing gear to both the regular M5 as well as the Competition model . Both met our expectations with brutally quick acceleration, sports-car-like cornering grip, and amazing stopping power. Likewise, the Competition proved to be quicker than the regular M5 on Virginia International Raceway's Grand Course at the 2019 Lightning Lap competition . The M5 faithful will lament the discontinued manual gearbox and unfamiliar all-wheel-drive system, but this Bimmer has a high-tech drivetrain that can send 100 percent of its torque to the rear wheels for tail-wagging fun. Driving enjoyment is maximized here with lively and direct steering and a well-controlled albeit stiff ride. That doesn't mean the M5 can't also do duty as a luxury sedan: In Comfort mode, it cruises placidly, and the cabin is whisper quiet.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The current M5 achieved an EPA rating of 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Both figures are worse than those of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S sedan (16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway). We tested the M5 Comp on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen . It exceeded its government rating by 3 mpg. For more information about the M5's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website .

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The M5 has an elegant leather interior with supportive sport seats. Unlike many of its rivals, BMW hasn't gone the all-touchscreen route, so adjusting the air conditioning or radio (via physical controls) is easy to do while the vehicle is in motion. The M5 comes with a slew of desirable features such as customizable ambient interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable steering column. BMW offers ventilated front seats with massage functionality, heated rear seats, and four-zone automatic climate control for more coin. As for storage space, the M5 has useful cubbies in the cabin, and its trunk held six carry-on suitcases in our testing. The CS model has a more race-inspired interior that features unique styling and badging as well as lightweight carbon-fiber front seats with substantial bolstering. It's also the first M5 to feature only four seats, wherein two bucket seats take the place of the regular M5's rear bench.

2022 bmw m5 cs interior

Infotainment and Connectivity

A 12.3-inch touchscreen sits atop the M5's dash and runs BMW's latest iDrive infotainment software. The driver uses a rotary knob in the center console to control it. The system includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot. There's also a 16-speaker, 600-watt Harman/Kardon audio system and wireless device charging on all models. Those who want a fancier setup can opt for the rear-seat entertainment system and 16-speaker, 1400-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The sports sedan does offer a wide variety of standard driver-assistance technology , such as automatic high-beams and blind-spot monitoring. For more information about the M5's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ( NHTSA ) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ( IIHS ) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  • Standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
  • Available adaptive cruise control

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

BMW provides a limited warranty and powertrain protection that align with what rivals allot. The included scheduled maintenance period is shorter than what Jaguar offers, but BMW's plan still ranks among the best.

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Complimentary maintenance is covered for three years or 36,000 miles

2024 BMW M5 Touring previewed in Christmas-themed wrap

We wouldn't mind finding one under the tree.

bmw m5 tour

BMW is bringing fans of hot-rodded station wagons an early Christmas present by giving them a preview of the next M5 Touring . Due out before the end of 2024, the long-roof M5 will take BMW into a segment it left over a decade ago and that's currently dominated by its rivals.

The 41-second video shows the M5 Touring wrapped in red, white and black camouflage that makes it look like a present; there's even a gold-colored bow on the roof. We wouldn't mind finding one under (or next to) the tree this year. While the wagon's finer design details remain under the festive wrap, the teaser provides a decent view of the massive air intake integrated into the front bumper and the punched-out rear wheel arches. Even camouflaged, the M5 Touring looks far more muscular than the new eighth-generation 5 Series it's based on.

While the video stops short of providing technical details, an earlier report claims power will come from a plug-in hybrid drivetrain built around a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 called S68 internally. The system will reportedly send 718 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque to the four wheels via a specific version of BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system. However, a separate report suggests a non-hybrid model will be offered as well. If that's the case, the base car could eschew electrification to save weight. Keep in mind nothing is official yet.

More details about the BMW M5 Touring will emerge in the coming months, and the wagon is expected to make its full debut before the end of 2024. When it lands, it will compete in the same segment as the Mercedes-AMG E63 and the Audi RS6 Avant, though it may end up being the only V8-powered model in the ring; the former is downsizing and the latter is allegedly going electric. Whether we'll see the M5 Touring in the United States remains up in the air, especially considering the recently-unveiled M3 Touring will not be sold on our shores.

BMW Teases New M5 Touring, Again

 Contact Us

bmw m5 tour

Over the holiday season, BMW social media teased the masses with photos of a gift wrapped M5 Touring. As the M&Ms would say, “It does exist!” Yes, it exists and it has been confirmed by BMW. They even have a website for it.

bmw m5 tour

Lately, we’ve seen spy shots of camouflaged M5 Tourings across the globe—even on U.S. soil. BMW says, “With the new edition of the BMW M5, there will be a Touring variant of the successful M model for the first time since 2007. The perfect symbiosis of M typical performance, uncompromising long-distance comfort and impressive spaciousness will experience a renaissance in 2024 with the new BMW M5 Touring.”

bmw m5 tour

The next-generation M5 has entered the “practical phase” of its development process, so I expect we’ll be seeing much more of this long-roof M machine in the coming months. BMW says, “The new high-performance model from BMW M is now completing its test drives on public roads, BMW Group proving grounds, and racetracks around the world.”

bmw m5 tour

As reported previously, the incoming M5 will have a hybrid powertrain, likely based on what’s in the XM Label. The new S68 engine is 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 with a hot “V” and 48V hybrid system. BMW confirms, “The M5 Touring will feature a completely newly developed partially electrified drive system. Its M typical performance characteristics as well as the precisely tuned chassis technology refined with innovative systems facilitate driving dynamics and agility at a level unique in this vehicle class. Thus, BMW M GmbH is steadily progressing on its path to electrification.”

While the new M5 Touring wasn’t a present that we could unwrap in 2023, here’s to hoping that the bespoke ///M wrapping paper comes off shortly into 2024. —Mike Bevels

The 2024 BMW M5 Touring: Everything You Need to Know

' src=

For the first time since the E60 and only the third time in history, BMW confirms the 2024 M5 Touring model for the seventh generation of BMW M5.

Table of Contents

Key Takeaways from the Article

  • The 2024 BMW M5 Touring (G99) will feature a powerful engine and electric motor combination as a plug-in hybrid.
  • Although pricing is yet to be confirmed, it is expected to surpass $100,000, with a potential range of $120,000 to $150,000.
  • The M5 Touring will share its powertrain with the BMW XM Label Red, potentially delivering over 700 horsepower and significant torque.
  • It is estimated to offer an electric-only range of up to 60 miles, outperforming the XM Label Red’s 30-mile range.
  • BMW confirms it as a plug-in hybrid, and they may introduce a fully electric version in the next generation of the 5 series in the late 2020s.
  • The next generation M5 will debut in 2024, with the sedan version launching in July and Touring production starting in November.
  • Availability in the United States is uncertain, but enthusiasts remain hopeful based on the success of other high-performance wagons in the market.

2024 BMW M5 Touring Photo

How Much Will the 2024 BMW M5 Touring Cost?

While BMW is yet to confirm pricing for the G99 BMW M5 Touring, we are confident it will surpass $100,000. The outgoing F90 M5 Sedan had a starting price of $109,900, which rose to $142,000 before options for the M5 CS. However, we don’t expect the price to reach the substantial $185,000 tag on the XM Label Red.

Additionally, it’s likely that the 2024 M5 Touring will cost more than the sedan, as that’s the case with the G81 BMW M3 Touring and its sedan counterpart. Overall, we anticipate the starting MSRP of the 2024 BMW M5 Touring to fall in the range of $120,000 to $150,000.

BMW M5 Touring Engine and Performance: What We Know so Far

With over 700 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque, the M5 certainly isn’t getting any slower.

What Engine and Powertrain Will the 2024 BMW M5 Touring Have?

The new M5 Touring will most likely share the same powertrain as the BMW XM Label Red. This system is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) featuring the BMW S63 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8, complemented by an additional electric motor. The M5 Touring will be available with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and a rear-wheel biased xDrive . The S63 is the same engine as the outgoing F90 M5, but BMW have done things different this time around, coupling it with an electric motor for greater power.

How Much Horsepower and Torque will the New M5 Touring Have?

bmw m5 tour

Depending on what you read, the horsepower numbers vary. BMW is yet to release official performance figures for the new M5, but one thing is certain: it will be a lot. Car and Driver suggests 738 horsepower. Autocar posits it could be up to 790 horsepower. BMWBlog offers a more conservative estimate at 718.

Personally, I stop counting after 700 horsepower. Knowing BMW, the true number will likely be higher. Then, the car will amaze everyone when it clocks a 2.7-second 0-60 mph time (I’m speaking figuratively).

On top of this, the XM packs a punch with up to 1,000 Nm of torque (737 lb-ft), so we expect the 2024 M5 Touring to provide roughly the same.

Presumably, it will at least match or possibly exceed the BMW XM Label Red, which BMW quotes at 748 horsepower.

  • BMW Increases Production of the G81 M3 Touring due to Unexpected Demand

When Will the New BMW M5 Touring be Available?

While no official date has been set yet, BMW confirmed the car’s debut in 2024. According to BMW Blog, the G90 M5 sedan will launch in July 2024, followed by the commencement of G99 M5 Touring production in November. Expect to see significant publicity surrounding these vehicles – BMW enthusiasts worldwide will be eagerly awaiting their appearance on the road.

Will the New M5 Touring be a Hybrid?

bmw m5 tour

BMW has confirmed that the 2024 BMW M5 will indeed be a hybrid. A quote from Dirk Häcker, Head of Development at BMW M GmbH, is featured on BMW’s website . Dirk states: “We are now also installing a hybrid drive system with typical M performance in other high-performance cars.”

It is likely that more M cars in the future will follow suit with the XM and M5, adopting the hybrid architecture.

How Far Will the New M5 Go on Electric only Range?

According to Car and Driver , the new M5 plans to go as far as 60 miles in electric-only mode, as long as you don’t exceed 87 mph. This would be about twice as far as the BMW XM, which can only travel about 30 miles on battery power alone.

Will There Be an Electric M5 Version?

Initially, there will not be a fully electric BMW M5 Touring. As we stated previously, it will definitely be a plug-in hybrid. It’s possible that we may see a fully electric M5 or i5 M in the future. However, according to BMW Blog , we won’t see this car under the G60 5 series. With the recent release of the i5 M60, BMW will likely wait until the next generation of the 5 series in the late 2020s before we see a fully electric version of the super sedan. Once this occurs, there are rumors for an electric M car with over 1,000 horsepower.

Will the G99 M5 Touring Come to the United States?

It’s too early to tell whether or not BMW will bring the M5 Touring to the United States. Nothing has been confirmed by the German giant, but we remain optimistic. Although the M3 Touring wasn’t brought to the North American shores , we hope BMW will change their minds with the M5 Touring. Both Audi and Mercedes successfully sell high-performance wagons in the USA, which will hopefully catch BMW’s eye. Unfortunately, the only thing wagon enthusiasts can do is wait and see.

What do you think of the 2024 M5 Touring? Is this a car you hope to see on American soil? If so, help spread the message by sharing this post. It would be greatly appreciated!

THE BMW M5 TOURING E61.

Motorsport and transport in perfect harmony..

No car transported so fast and comfortably – from 2007 to 2010, the BMW M5 Touring E61 revolutionized the world of estate cars with hi-tech and high performance. The M automobile had a high-revving V10 engine and a design marked by understatement. Thanks to the M typical sport suspension and the roomy boot, the BMW M5 Touring was quickly seen as the perfect allrounder.

5 POWERFUL FACTS:

  • 01 10-cylinder engine with high-rev concept
  • 02 Displacement: 4,999 cm3
  • 03 Max. output: 373 kW (507 hp)
  • 04 7-speed SMG with Drivelogic
  • 05 Vmax (optional): 305 km/h

BMW M5 Touring E61 rear

THE ENGINE.

A v10 from the f1 forge..

From the beginning, the BMW M5 Touring was conceived as a racetrack-capable five-door car which puts a lot of power on the asphalt: 5.0 litre capacity, 10 cylinders, 507 hp and maximum torque of 520 Newton metres. The extraordinary engine, whose housing was manufactured in the same forge as the Formula 1 motor blocks of the era, had a maximum speed of 8,250 rpm. The Touring accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, at 250 km/h an electronic limiter kicked in – with an option of 305 km/h. On top of that was the unique, mesmerizing sound, which in this form can only be offed by 10-cylinder engines with a high-rev concept.

The V10 engine of the BMW M5 Touring E61

Pure power – the V10 engine with 507 hp.

The power train won numerous awards (including “Engine of the Year 2005”) and was given the high-rev concept from motorsport for optimum performance and thrust build-up. During tests on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring, the Touring E61 turned in lap times that were only just behind the M5 Sedan.

was the excellent power to weight ratio of the BMW M5 Touring E61 – the result of the enormous power on offer and an empty weight of 1,955 kg.

EMOTION AND RATIO.

Motorsport with cargo hold..

By starting the engine, the P400 performance programme with 400 hp was activated. By pressing the Power button beside the gear lever and the P500 programme kicked in, offering the full 507 hp engine performance. At the same time the pedal kinematics reset to a sharper sensitivity of the accelerator. In P500 mode, the speedo reached the 200 km/h mark after just 14 seconds. The Launch Control, fitted as standard, played its part by ensuring optimum acceleration: on ignition, it held the engine steady on 4,000 rpm, before bringing the full power of the engine into play with the acceleration. Back then, this system was only known in Formula 1 and super sportscars.

The trunk of the BMW M5 Touring E61

The M Automobiles cargo artist – the BMW M5 Touring offered 500 to 1,650 litres cargo volume.

With all the motorsport DNA, people almost forgot that the M automobile also had lots of space: five complete seats and a flexible cargo volume of 500 to 1,650 litres. The full capacity could be achieved by putting down the back seats. Therefore, several bags and cases or a complete racing bike were no problem for the exclusive Touring model.

FASTER SHIFTING.

The sequential transmission (smg) of the bmw m5 touring..

The sequential, 7-speed M transmission with Drivelogic, which could either be fully automatic or used via the shift paddles on the steering wheel, had eleven different driving modes: six for manual shifting and five for the automatic. At every speed and number of revs, the ideal ratio was ready, either for maximum economy or if desired to open up the full temperament of the engine. For the sporting purists, the ESP had to be deactivated.  

BMW M5 Touring E61

Emotion and ratio in perfect harmony – the BMW M5 Touring was one of the fastest series estates of its time.

DRIVING DYNAMICS – M TYPICAL.

High performance thanks to innovative components..

The rear wheel drive, full aluminium chassis and almost equal weight distribution between the front and rear axles were ideal prerequisites for maximum driving pleasure. The electronic suspension control had three settings in the BMW M5 Touring: Comfort, Normal and Sport. The permanent stepless damper force distribution raised its performance in bends, when braking and when accelerating, and tangibly improved the pitch and roll behaviour of the vehicle. And the braking was high performance too: Thanks to the M braking system,  the vehicle could safely and quickly brake even under peak loads. In the interplay with the direct steering, the driver could take the next hairpin fast and in complete control.

THE DESIGN.

Understatement meets m power..

The BMW M5 Touring had a few design details that characterized it as a true M automobile. The M specific front and rear skirts were immediately recognizable. The fog lamps of the civilian 5-Series model had to give way to larger air inlets on the M5. At the back, it was the implied diffuser and the recesses for the voluminous exhaust system which gave the observer a first impression of the Touring’s performance potential. The striking M gills behind the front wheels provided further optical emphasis. A dynamic design with high recognition value was also a feature of the specially developed M exterior mirrors: their special shape reduced uplift on the front axle at high speeds. 19-inch M alloy wheels rounded off the appearance of the high-performance model with a propensity for understatement.

bmw m5 tour

THE INTERIOR.

Sporting luxury for drivers..

In the interior, the tone was set by exclusive M specific components like the M leather steering wheel or the instruments and controls in pearl lustre chrome. Praised by the press, the new iDrive system was made for uncluttered fittings and user-friendliness. Fitted as standard, the full leather upholstery was available in several versions. Optionally, the BMW M5 Touring could be equipped with multi-adjustable M sports seats, in which the highest level of comfort and ideal lateral support were no contradiction: the side of the seat on the outside of the curve instantly inflated to provide the driver with even more support.

bmw m5 tour

FAST AND RARE.

The bmw m5 touring e61 is a coming classic car..

The BMW M5 Touring overcame apparent contradictions: It was a comfortable touring limousine, a roomy estate and a thoroughbred sportscar. Thanks to its performance, the M automobile was from a technical point of view an extraordinary vehicle. And ahead of its time. The engineers blended a rational five-door car with an emotional high-performance sports car – equipped with a fascinating power train and the full range of M specific components. The BMW M5 Touring E61 is a rare and sought-after collector’s item with guaranteed value appreciation. Just 1,009 were licensed worldwide.

THE BMW M3 TOURING

BMW M3 Touring

Never say never: For the first time in history, there will be a BMW M3 Touring. The connection between M specific peak performance and the intelligent functionality of a Touring model make the BMW M3 G81 a very special vehicle.

BMW Releases Teasers For M5 Touring That Might Come To America

While the high-performance wagon is wearing a christmas-themed camouflage wrap, it still looks very good..

Front 3/4 view of a BMW M5 Touring with a Christmas wrap

BMW hasn’t even revealed the regular Touring wagon versions of the new 5 Series and its electric i5 variant yet, but just before Christmas the company released new teasers of the high-performance M5 Touring. Not only will this be just the third time the M5 has been offered as a wagon after the E34 and E60 generations, it also could become the first fast BMW wagon to be sold in America.

The teasers came both on Instagram and YouTube, with the latter being a silly video showing a guy in a Santa costume reading a letter titled “The M List” and entering a garage where the M5 Touring is parked next to a tree. Despite being covered in a Christmas-themed camouflage wrap, we’re able to see a lot of details of BMW’s hottest wagon yet.

The front end does without the tall kidney grilles of cars like the M4 and 7 Series, instead getting kidneys the same shape as the normal 5 Series just with larger openings for cooling and horizontal grille strakes. The front bumper has a huge angular central intake, similar to that of the updated X5 M, with triangular intakes at the corners.

It looks like the M5 will have wider fender flares that will house big wheels and brakes, though in a departure from modern M5 tradition it doesn’t look like the front fenders will have any sort of air vent. There’s a spoiler at the top of the tailgate, and the aggressive rear bumper has four huge exhaust tips. The roofline of the new G60-generation 5 Series has been controversial for some, but the wagon’s tapering roof, raked rear glass and rising beltline look pretty damn good to me.

Side view of a BMW M5 Touring with a red Christmas wrap

Powering the new M5 will be some sort of hybrid system — BMW says the powertrain is “completely newly developed,” but it’s likely an evolution of the plug-in-hybrid setup used in the flagship XM SUV . Expect a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine paired with an electric motor for a total output of more than 700 horsepower, plus a few dozen miles of electric range.

BMW has previously said that the standard 5 Series and i5 Tourings will debut in Spring 2024, but all that we know about the M5's debut is that it will occur sometime in 2024. While we won’t get the 5 Series and i5 wagons in the U.S., reports have pointed to the M5 Touring being offered in America . That means, for the first time in history, all three major German brands could sell a fast wagon in the U.S. at the same time, as Audi gears up the RS6 for a facelift and Mercedes is just months away from revealing AMG versions of its next-gen E-Class wagon . It’s a Christmas miracle!

In the midst of teasing the next M5 Touring , BMW M is subtly offering a sneak peek at the electric i5 Touring in a high-performance attire. The exact debut date hasn’t been announced yet, but we can expect it to make its appearance in the coming weeks.

The specific trim name isn’t specified in the shadowy teaser , but it’s highly likely that it portrays the i50 Touring M60 xDrive. Just to recap, the equivalent i5 sedan boasts 593 hp (442 kW / 601 PS) and 820 Nm (605 lb-ft) of torque, thanks to its dual electric motor setup. This power is supplied by a battery pack with a usable capacity of 81.2 kWh, and we anticipate similar figures for the Touring version.

BMW M / YouTube

After numerous teasers, spy shots, renderings, and leaked patent drawings , we are pretty familiar with the design of the 5-Series and i5 Touring. The wagon shares the front part of its bodywork with the sedan, adding a redesigned roofline and rear end with slim LED taillights.

As for the M60 xDrive trim that appears in the briefvideo above, it will feature a flashier bodykit courtesy of the BMW M division. Distinctions from the standard i5 include sportier bumpers, aerodynamic mirror caps, larger-diameter wheels, and an array of M badges. However, it’s worth noting that the electric i5 Touring won’t have the same dramatic appearance as the forthcoming M5 Touring, which will occupy the top spot in the range and boast an even more potent plug-in hybrid V8 powertrain.

Unfortunately for US buyers , the BMW i5 Touring will not be offered in North America. However, the Bavarian automaker has confirmed that it will be available in 27 European Union countries, along with the UK, Norway, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan.

BMW’s electric 5 Series wagon gets ready for its close-up

T he flagship performance variant of the upcoming BMW i5 Touring electric wagon has been teased online by the German carmaker, just weeks before its official unveiling.

In a video uploaded to YouTube , BMW’s M performance division showed off the silhouette of the i5 M60 Touring, highlighting minor differences between it and non-M versions.

The i5 M60 Touring is expected to mirror its sedan sibling by adding a range of BMW M’s performance parts to its body and under the skin, complementing its dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain which produces 442kW and 820Nm in the four-door offering.

While the i5 M60 Touring would normally be expected to sit as the range-topping long-roof offering, BMW has confirmed the high-performance M5 will spawn a wagon version later this year, powered by a hybrid V8 powertrain.

Previous reports have said the i5 Touring will be uncovered between March and May 2024, though specialist publication BMW Blog claims the electric wagon could be revealed as early as late February.

Recent spy photos have shown the BMW i5 M60 Touring being tested at the Nürburgring in Germany, with the carmaker putting its new wagon to the test at the car industry’s long-serving proving ground.

BMW Australia is yet to confirm whether the i5 Touring and 5 Series Touring will be sold locally, as the previous-generation 5 wagon was axed from showrooms in 2020 – albeit retained for select police forces across the country.

The BMW 5 Series and i5 sedan arrived in Australian showrooms at the end of 2024.

BMW i5 Touring teased – fully electric wagon to debut soon

bmw m5 tour

After the all-new 5 Series and the i5 , BMW is now teasing the upcoming i5 Touring which is set to make its world debut this year. Through a social media post , BMW is teasing the wagon silhouette of the 5 Series’ latest addition. This isn’t the first time the 5 Series wagon is teased, but this time around, it’s the all-electric version.

The current generation of the 5 Series is called the G60 for its petrol version and the G60E for the all-electric version (the i5). Judging by the usual naming convention of the 5 Series, the petrol wagon should be called the G61, while the i5 Touring should be called the G61E. Interestingly, the latest generation of the 5 Series wagon might be first unveiled as an all-electric car.

The sedan version of the 5 Series and i5 have already made their world debut last year and the i5 has already been launched in Malaysia. Although there are some wagon fans in Malaysia, we don’t expect the i5 Touring to be launched in Malaysia officially. The i5 in Malaysia is currently offered in one variant only which is the i5 eDrive40.

The BMW i5 eDrive40 is a single-motor rear-wheel-drive electric car with an electric range of 582 km . The single motor outputs 340 hp and 430 Nm (in boost mode) and allows the i5 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds . Its top speed is limited to 193 km/h . We can expect this exact powertrain to be in one of the variants of the i5 Touring as well, albeit with a shorter all-electric range due to its additional mass. There is a more powerful version of the i5 sedan which is the i5 M60 xDrive.

Another version of the 5 Series we anticipate besides the i5 Touring, is the flagship M5. The M5 will be available in both sedan and wagon guises and it will be a plug-in hybrid performance car.

BMW M5 Wagon is making a comeback in 2024 and this time, it’s heading to the United States as well. A 2025 BMW M5 Touring prototype was spotted in Los Angeles, of course with the typical BMW camouflage. BMW runs an engineering and testing team out of Oxnard, so it makes sense that prototypes are usually seen around Los Angeles. The Bavarians have yet to confirm the M5 Wagon for the U.S. market, but it’s pretty much an open secret by now: we will finally see the versatile and powerful M5 next summer.

Staying true to its M lineage, the soon-to-be-released BMW M5 Touring (G99) adopts a wide-body style that distinguishes it from the typical 5 Series models. As anticipated, the rear fenders boast substantial width, establishing a unique and unmistakable visual distinction for the G90/G99 M5. The front of the vehicle takes clear inspiration from the BMW i5 M60 , and the rear is expected to mirror the design elements of the upcoming BMW i5 M60 Touring.

Despite the heavy camouflage, we can see the aggressive front bumper crafted in the characteristic M style, featuring a large air intake and air breathers. Additionally, the kidney grille is somewhat similar to the one from the BMW i5 M60, it is distinguished by its horizontal slats. The headlights are expected to be in line with those of the new 5 Series, ensuring no major surprises in that regard. Additionally, these spy photos reveal seamlessly integrated door handles and a set of four exhaust pipes.

The powertrain within the 2025 BMW M5 Touring has been completely overhauled. It now combines a plug-in hybrid system with the brand-new S68 4.4-liter V8 engine, resulting in a formidable output of 718 horsepower for its standard model. Although the exact torque figures are not yet confirmed, we anticipate them to be on par with the BMW XM Label Red, boasting 738 lb-ft of torque. As a plug-in hybrid, the upcoming BMW M5 Touring will also operate on electric power.

BMW will first debut the M5 Sedan (G90) next summer, followed a few months later by the touring variant. Both models will enter production next year with deliveries scheduled for late 2024. [Photos: instagram.com/therealbstew ]
