We have the first details of the BMW 5-Series Touring wagon debut, scheduled for April in Leipzig. The story inside.
BMW will use the Auto Mobil International motor show in Leipzig, Germany, as the launching ground for the new BMW 5-Series Touring (F10). The fourth-generation wagon will be introduced to the media on April 9 before being shown off to the public.
The company explained their decision by saying the German market is their biggest for the 5er Touring. Leipzig will likely be Germany's largest automotive show this year, as the biennial Frankfurt show is in a hiatus.
Look for the Touring edition to get the same seven engine choices as the sedan. This could include the top-shelf 4.4-liter twin-turbo direct injection V8 petrol engine producing 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp) and up to 600 Nm (440 lb-ft) of torque. Also available are three straight-six petrol engines, and three four-cylinder diesels.
Alongside the 5er wagon, BMW will show off the 5er sedan, X5 facelift, and 3er convertible, all for the first time in Germany.
