2010 BMW 5-series touring spyshots

Source: Car Magazine / Ben Pulman


These are the very first pictures of the new BMW 5-series Touring. Snapped testing in Germany, the new 5-series estate will boast BMW’s latest Efficient Dynamics technology, Concept CS-inspired looks, an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a further development of the current car’s aluminium and steel platform.

But the new 5-series Touring will still have a sloping rear end so if you're after a particularly roomy 5-series we'd suggest its sister, Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) isntead, which BMW insiders claim offers as much interior space as a Rolls-Royce Phantom.


Will it be a good looking BMW 5-series?
Should be. Both the dead-in-the-water Concept CS and new 7-series will influence the new Five's design, so expect a big kidney grille and big flat sides. LED eyebrows should also feature, wrapping around the famous 'angel eye' headlights.

Size-wise the new 5-series will be around 10mm longer than the existing car, but a shorter front overhang and longer-wheelbase should ensure much more room inside.

And to help make this new 5-series the ‘ultimate driving machine’ the options list will offer up active steering, lane guidance, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control and dynamic drive. An eight-speed ZF-sourced automatic – that will improve acceleration and reduce emissions – will also be available.

And the engines?
The engine line-up should look a lot like this:

Diesel:

520d – 2.0-litre 4-cyl turbo
530d – 3.0-litre straight-six turbo
535d – 3.0-litre straight-six twin-turbo

The 525d (3.0-litre single turbo diesel) may be dropped for a 523d using BMW’s twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel.

Petrol:

525i – 2.5-litre straight-six
530i – 3.0-litre straight-six
535i – 3.0-litre straight-six twin-turbo
550i – 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo
M5 – 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo

We’ll see the production version of the PAS at the Frankfurt motor show and the new 5-series within the next 12 months, followed by the Touring in 2010, and an M5 next year as well.

The new platform will also spawn replacements for the next 6-series coupe and cabriolet, though BMW has cancelled plans for other 6-series variants.

520d – 2.0-litre 4-cyl turbo
530d – 3.0-litre straight-six turbo
535d – 3.0-litre straight-six twin-turbo


ok....but what about 540d , a 3.5 or 4.0 V8......audis have V12 btw

525i – 2.5-litre straight-six
530i – 3.0-litre straight-six
535i – 3.0-litre straight-six twin-turbo
550i – 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo
M5 – 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo

550i and M5 appear to have same engines...not sure about that , M5 will most likely be 5.2 or 4.9 V10 bi turbo because I think this time they will go with the torque , not power

car and driver OFFICIALLY confirmed that the M5 will have V8 with twin turbos, they said that 550i will most likely decrease in liters but still will have a v8. i am not sure about 550i but they said that because of the fuel crisis and the direction that the BMW is heading with the economy and fuel efficient cars they had to make that choice, but the BMW M5 will most likely have around 550hp.

Well, considering the engine policy of BMW I would say they cancelled the v8 diesel (read some news in a german car magazine). First they can easily rise a 35d to the hp of the 40d with better fuel economy and less weight. Second they have never put a v8 diesel into the 5series (just 7series) and due to the critical times these days I guess they never will. The Audi V12 Diesel is just for marketing purposes. Not really necessary and as far as I know just planned to be built into the Q7.

The engine of the 550i and the M5 is not the same. They just share the same displacement and injection-technique. The engine of the M5 is developped by the M division and not just a powered up version of the 50i engine. Of course it has a higher output then a 550i.

yea thats correct but they are making the new m5 twin turbo and decreasing it by 2 cylinders. i dunno how they are going to achieve 550hp (supposedly) that they have planned for that car.

I definitely believe the headlights would be scaled down. The eyebrow may curve down instead of up. The eyebrow is my biggest concern.
Or... they may add an extra angel eye? lol

I am sure that the M5 will not use the same engine size as 550. Probably a 4.8L TT or 5.0

Heard that a 540d with 306bhp will be released in September along with the new M5. 540 sounds like it will be the same lump as the 335d with increased bhp. Maybe old news now so sorry if its wrong!!
