BMW has unveiled their new 2011 5 Series Touring, codename F11. The series is perfect in driving pleasure, efficiency, versatility and sporting elegance. It is more extensive comfort and safety features, which include numerous BMW exclusive driver assistance systems, substantiate the outstanding qualities, so it’s an upper midrange touring car.

The F11 Touring will come in two flavors of six-cylinder petrol engines, 523i with 204 horsepower and the 535i, 306 hp. Four and six-cylinder diesel powerplants are offered as well, including the 520d with 184 hp and 525d with 245 hp. The diesel engine in the 520d offers one of the best fuel consumption numbers in a Touring model: 5.2 liters per 100 km or 45.2 MPG. As part of EfficientDynamics, the 520d includes the Start-Stop technology.

The exterior design can be quite subjective and each one of the above listed cars have their own strengths and fans, so we will refrain at this time from drawing a conclusion. The BMW offers with 2.97 meters, by far the longest wheelbase in its segment and, consequently, the shortest overhangs, which contributes much to its dynamic side view. All the competitors are within 7 centimeters in exterior length. The design lines and size seems to fit the car better than ever.

The BMW has given the new 5-series Touring more load volume and flexibility. The specialists from Aachen have been even more generous – they have taken a step further in terms of driving dynamics and driving pleasure. The core of the upgraded Bavarian models is the AC Schnitzer performance upgrades. After conversion, the BMW 530d develops an impressive 286 HP and thus leaves nothing to be desired in terms of power. The uprated 535d now accelerates with an impressive 360 HP, while the 520d and 525d develop a powerful 218 HP and 245 HP respectively. The AC Schnitzer engine styling with capacity logo shows just what is concealed below the bonnet.
