Here are the first photos of an F10 5-series sedan right alongside the F11 5-series touring. As one can see, besides the difference in roofline and the rear design, the F11 touring retains the F10s beautiful lines and design features.

Car and Driver magazine has put up their review of the new 5-series straight from Portugal. Read the select quotes below but make sure to follow the link the full article!
