After all, in fact, we have a “five” BMW with all its advantages (powerful engines, excellent chassis, sharp steering), and even with such a beautiful body. Frankly speaking, BMW wagon does not turn its name into a “shed”, it’s so organic and stylish the car looks from the side, and from behind. Let’s pay attention to our readers how harmonious the body of the station wagon is in profile: a long sloping bonnet, a heavily piled back front post, a practically straight roof line, flowing to the solid stern through the excellent rear post, even the firm bend of Hofmeister that emphasizes the end of the window line is present. It is worth mentioning the presence of a tailgate with an original relief, neat spoiler and LED marker lights, as well as a sedan 5-series. Just a sight, not machines. But Russians give their preference to sedans and crossovers, and the station wagon … suddenly the neighbors will think that the owner is a country boy.
The CLAR modular platform and the new body of the BMW 5-Series Touring (G31), made primarily of high-strength steel, as well as aluminum roof and hood, doors and boot lid, rear side rails and suspension brackets allowed the station wagon to drop nearly 100 kg of curb weight Compared with the previous generation of the model .

The luggage compartment itself has a useful cargo volume from 570 to 1700 liters and is equipped with nets for fastening luggage, protective curtains, a mass of secret niches and places for storing small luggage.
