For those executives seeking more practicality than the saloon can offer, the BMW 5 Series Touring (or estate in everyday speak) is BMW’s answer. It takes on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class estate and the Audi A6 Avant, and each of these estates aren’t simply a bigger, boxy version of the saloons they are based on.

Equipment

There’s a pair of trim levels available on the 5 Series Touring, but as usual there’s also a huge list of optional extras available for you to tick off the list when you buy your car. To make it slightly easier to choose, BMW has also split some of the options into packs.

BMW 5 Series Touring equipment

The SE Touring version comes with a good level of kit as standard including leather, dual auto air con, parking sensors front and rear, auto windscreen wipers, auto headlights, Bluetooth phone connections and electronic handbrake. The M Sport version adds bigger 18-inch alloys, M Sport suspension, M Sport bodykit including roof rails and M Sport steering wheel.

BMW 5 Series Touring accessories

As is the norm with premium German cars, there’s a vast list of optional accessories available on the 5 Series Touring. Park Assist is a system which will find a parking space and then help the driver steering into it automatically. Four-wheel steering can be ordered, which cuts the car’s turning circle by half a metre making it much easier to manoeuvre. The Surround View system gives the driver a 360-degree view of the car from above, once again making parking much easier. You can also specify Head-up Display, Night Vision with pedestrian recognition, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning, Speed Limit Info and two rear entertainment packages. Furthermore, there’s a DVD sat nav system, automatic eight-speed gearbox (comes as standard on the 535d), interior trim packages, heated front seats, USB connection and metallic paint.There are also four optional equipment ‘packages’ available: BMW Business Advanced Media and BMW Professional Multimedia packages include BMW Navigation, BMW ConnectedDrive – Assist and Online and Voice control. The Dynamic package includes 19-inch alloy wheels, Sport seats, Anthracite headlining, Sport leather steering wheel and High-gloss exterior trim. The Visibility package includes Adaptive headlights, Xenon headlights, High-beam Assist and headlight wash.

Parkers recommends

If you’re interested in resale value then try to make sure you choose cars with leather, premium sound systems and sat nav. The majority of cars sold in the UK will be M Sport trim, so choosing one of those will also be a good idea as they’re by far the most desirable.
