BMW has the luxury of being able to shift subtly the emphasis of the new 5-series Touring. Thanks to the arrival of the new 5-series Gran Turismo – unveiled last week – the new Five estate can fulfil a slightly different role. CAR Magazine has managed to snap some more photos of the upcoming wagon variant of the 5 series undergoing testing and it does look mighty fine.

As you can seen, BMW is going full steam ahead with their Touring (wagon) (F11) variant of the upcoming 5-Series. If you ask me, Im not exactly sure how the interplay betwen this car and the 5-series GT will be, but regardless the car is coming and as you can see the tape is slowly being peeled off.

The upcoming BMW 5-series finally looses her camoflage armour in exchange for the psychadelic graphics. BMW has officially begun the striptease for the new 5-series and I cant wait to see more….
Ever since the new BMW 5-Series (F10) has had its front bumper publically outed and then what seemed to be a page from the advertising brochure, the photoshoppers have been going all out to create mimicks of what the car may look like. Jon Sibal gives us a high quality interpretation

Talk about a major screwup. Here we have a leaked photo of the F10 5 Series front end. This is no photoshop job, this is the real deal and it seems to have been leaked WAY in advance of the release of this car and I’d have to assume this is unintended. I do have to say that this looks to be the best styled 5-series ever and I’m in serious anticipation of this car!!

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.… CONTINUED
I would classify this as MAJOR news. It seems somehow a photo of the new 5 Series (F10) bumper has been leaked onto the internet so we now have a complete idea of half of the front end of this car. Let the photoshopping begin!

With the BMW 5-Series Security, BMW offers an armoured sedan in the premium segment of the upper medium category.

BMW is currently developing a F5 / V5 based on the upcoming F10 5-series. Its best described as an MPV, but unlike the current Touring models the new cars will feature a taller ride-height and high roof to maximize interior space.
In these photos we can now see the exposed grill, including slats. Like the new F01 7-series, the F01 5-series clearly looks to have significantly larger kidney grills up front.

Well folks, the next big step in the upcoming 5-series technical development has finally arrived. The car has now been seen lapping the famed Nurburgring.
The new 5 is still seen wearing its heavy armour suit, but the car is said to borrow heavily from the BMW Concept CS styling to create a more reserved but aggressive look at compared to the current car.
Whats to be expected?
Unsurprisingly, the car will have big kidney grills, ala Concept … CONTINUED
Here are the first photos of the heavily covered interior of the F10 5-series. Getting a glimpse of an upcoming models interior always provides good insight into the future design language of other upcoming BMW models.
Notice the new side-by-side placement of the gear selector and i-drive knob in the middle console. It appears to resemble the new X5s console. We also get a peak at the new steering wheel.
Spied in its usual black armor is the new 5-series. Here you can atleast tell the general dimensions, shape and roofline of the car. According to CARmagazine insiders this car will NOT be as radical as the current 5-series was and will be a more flowing car. Im guessing the bodyline will be more inline with the BMWCS concept and be very pleasing to the eye. The overall proportions of the car do reveal very short overhangs for a very sporty look that is missing from the current competition from … CONTINUED
